More than 300,000 euros will be distributed for the creation of new tourism products.

 

Companies wishing to qualify for the sponsorship programme must join the club before October 1st .

 

Being pioneers in joining the Galicia Destino Sostible Product Club created by the Galicia Tourism Cluster in collaboration with the Xunta de Galicia has its rewards. Those companies that join before the end of this month are eligible for a sponsorship programme that will distribute more than 300,000 euros for the development of new tourism products. In total, around a hundred beneficiaries will be able to receive funding for the development of proposals that are unique in nature and that provide a differential value in terms of sustainability.

 

Aid will be granted to 15 wholesale travel agencies, which will be able to receive 3,000 euros for each new product, and up to a maximum of 3 per agency. In the case of retail travel agencies, there will be 28 potential beneficiaries and each of them will be able to finance a maximum of two products with an aid of 2,000 euros per product. Finally, 50 accommodation, restaurants and complementary tourism businesses will be able to receive a grant of 1,300 euros. If the maximum amount is not reached in any of these three categories, the remaining funds may be redistributed among the other categories. All these grants will be awarded in strict order of registration, provided that the company meets the requirements and receives the approval of the club’s evaluation committee.

 

The Galicia Destino Sostible Product Club is open to the participation of any Galician company in the field of accommodation, restaurants, travel agencies and suppliers of complementary tourism products. Companies that already have an official sustainability certification (S from the ICTE, Biosphere, Green Key, EU Ecolabel, Green Globe21, Travellife, Rainforest Alliance Certified, Green Star from the MICHELIN Guide, etc.) or an environmental certification (ISO 14000, EMAS, etc.) can join the club directly, as these are considered qualifying requirements. Those that do not have any of these certifications may join the club if they meet 100% of the mandatory requirements and at least 33% of the assessable requirements.
