Step 1

Become a Travelife Member

Click here to join now and gain access to our exclusive Member Zone where you will find everything you need to get started.  Don’t worry if you are just starting out, we find that properties are often further ahead than they realise.

Step 2

Assess where you are at and plan your improvements

In the Member Zone you will find your Travelife Checklist.  You can use this to assess what you are already doing well and where you need to make improvements.  There is advice on how you can plan the improvements you will need to make before your audit.  Click here to view the Travelife Checklists.

Step 3

Prepare for your audit

Use the Member Guides, examples and templates in the Member Zone to make your improvements.

Step 4

Schedule your audit and make any further improvements

Work with Travelife to confirm a date for your audit.  If the auditor cannot find evidence that you have met the Travelife Standard, our team will work with you on the improvements you need to make before you can be certified.   Click here to learn more about how the certification process works.

Step 5

Celebrate and promote your certification

You will be given the Travelife Gold Certification logo to display on your promotional materials and a certificate.  You will be listed on the Stay Better Places website so travellers can find you and we will update our Member tour operators about your certification.

Step 6

Maintain your status and aim for excellence

Your certification is valid for two years provided you maintain compliance with the Travelife Standard.  During that time you will have full access to the Member Zone to help you maintain your status and we will send you regular updates containing news, tips and advice that are especially tailored for accommodation providers.
