Quality Tourism Accreditation Fees Waived

In VTIC’s continued support of the industry through this challenging time, VTIC, in partnership with the Australian Tourism Industry Council (ATIC), has agreed to waive accreditation fees until January 2021. This is a great opportunity to trial the benefits of accreditation, one of the Quality Tourism Framework programs, within your business.

Learn about the Quality Tourism Framework

Accreditation will help you analyse all aspects of your business, with full access to the business development resources and templates within the program. Once your application is approved, you will be recognised as committed to high standards of business practice and offering visitors a high quality tourism experience. Further accreditation benefits include:

  • 60% discount on your ATDW fees
  • Complimentary ReviewPro account
  • Complimentary listing on national consumer website Trust the Tick
  • Plus more

If you would like to continue with Quality Tourism Accreditation in January, the accreditation fee for businesses will be calculated then and invoiced at a 50% discount.

Complimentary Business Recovery Support

To further assist with your recovery planning, ATIC has developed a business recovery module as part of the QTF online program, complimentary for all tourism businesses.

The Business Recovery module takes you through a self-assessment questionnaire designed to support you to undertake critical thinking on your current situation and identify strategies you will use as the various stages of travel restrictions are lifted. The module covers key sections of your recovery planning:

  • Assess your current situation
  • Business continuity actions
  • Staff management
  • Financial analysis
  • Operational recovery
  • Marketing and communications

Your answers will be exported to provide you with a continuity plan for the coming months. You can access the module at any time, and update your planning as needed.

Sign up to create a QTF account in the online program, and select ‘COVID-19 Business Recovery’ in the dashboard. Links to information on current Federal and State Government support packages are available in the module. The VTIC Critical Information Hub has further resources to assist as you work through the questions.
