This is why we have created a setup where you can choose from four different ways to get approved to our site, see the various options below.
Find the one that fits you best, and once you have the required documentation ready, we will go through it with you, and give you a helping hand if you need it.

Any hotel that has undergone a serious and extensive sustainability certification, is welcome on EcoHotels.com without further ado.
A booking site with a heart!
We believe that tourism, one of the world´s largest and fastest-growing industries, has the potential to be a power for good. In order for that to happen, we need more facts, more transparency and less green-washing. EcoHotels.com aims to be a tool for the sustainability-conscious traveler, who values commitment and responsible actions equally to a good experience and a comfortable stay.
At EcoHotels.com, we practice what we preach! 10% of our commissions go to supporting The Travel Foundation – an independent charity working to ensure tourism benefits people and the environment in destinations.
-We recognize that it´s hard to navigate as a consumer in an online world where green-washing is not better controlled and limited.
-We understand the challenges facing hotel owners, trying to maintain their personal expression and financial health in a world dominated by huge online travel agencies and search engines going hand-in-hand to exact the maximum amount of bookings and highest possible commissions.
-And we understand that it´s hard to take in account all aspects of sustainability when traveling – what is more important to you: organic/healthy food, social commitment, a responsible environmental approach? Or all 3 – and more?
We have allied ourselves with the most trustworthy authorities within sustainable travel, and all hotel operators on our site live up to all criteria pertaining to the triple bottom line, as defined by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council.
So dear hotel owner: we will support your business when you want it, and not cannibalize on your business when you prefer to stand on your own. And we will not charge you exorbitant commission rates for our services. We promise that you will only be in the company of dedicated sustainable hotels operators such as yourself – a community of tips, advice and best-practice sharing across the world, to the continued growth of responsible tourism.
We have offices all over Europe and we look forward to explore market opportunities with you.
