Bus companies, group tourism providers, travel portals and their associations
In addition to information on environmental zones and environmental badges, bus companies, group tour operators, group travel portals and their associations generally require additional information on the use of open capacities, bus rental companies and manufacturers, leisure and experience providers, internet agencies, hotel and catering industry and many other sectors and service providers that are necessary for a complete range of tourism services.
For this reason, Green-Zones provides the following overview of the relevant associations and partners with whom an agreement has been made for the exchange of information of such type.
This allows bus operators, group tour operators and package specialist tour operators to quickly and effectively obtain an overview and access to the required products and services by means of a direct contact with an eligible association.
