Sustainable Tourism

Now that touristic peak season is over, let's take a closer look to new ways of travelling worldwide.

Sustainable tourism is a new way to plan a trip taking into account ecology, local economy and also social and ethical aspects. The term "sustainable tourism" refers to all forms of alternative tourism that attempts to minimize negative impacts on the local environment.

This form of tourism should provide a viable economic activity for all players, whether locals or travelers. It is the opportunity for tourists to gain a better insight of local issues and ways to improve them. Major national, regional or international organisations set up policies and awareness campaigns related to sustainable tourism. This is the case of the European Union, the United Nations, the World Tourism Organization or the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

Eco-tourism, fair-trade tourism, volunteering or social tourism are all examples of sustainable tourism being more and more popular. For those who are already planning the next trip...

Make a Worldwide Tour !

Many of us dream of travelling around the world ... but where to start ? Depending on your age, your budget, your interests, you can travel by plane, train and even boat, working locally to pay for your travel or leave everything in the hands of a tour operator. Here are some tips to prepare for your trip:

-Before leaving, you should set your budget, knowing that airline tickets are often expensive. Ask travel agencies offering "world tour" tickets with established routes. Costs in less expensive countries (like in Asia and Latin America) will be offset by those in most expensive countries (for example Japan or the United States).

-We also advise you to plan routes according to the climate, security, jetlag, but also tourist periods to be avoided. It is also recommended to learn about the cultures of the countries visited. You have to enjoy and make the most of your adventure!

-Remember to update your immunizations, have a valid passport and any necessary visas. Also, try to travel with only the most essential items in your bag!

-Finally, purchase a travel insurance to travel with peace of mind ! Choose a travel insurance specific for Worldwide Tour !

Your passport for the United States

Reminder for visas

For stays less than 90 days, you do not need a visa, but you need an Electronic Travel Authorisation (ESTA), you can get it online with direct payment.

For longer stays, you must apply for a visa at the Embassy of the United States.

Recognize your passport

Knowing the type of passport you have is very important.

If your passport is recent (issued after 2006 or 2009) you probably do not need a visa. If your passport is machine-readable or old, there is a good chance that you need a new passport.
