Welcome to ANTOR, the Association of National Tourist Offices and Representatives. Our UK members comprise national and regional tourist offices which are represented in the United Kingdom.
ANTOR is a voluntary, non-political organisation which was established in the UK in 1951, run by an elected board of members and secretariat.
ANTOR’S website is designed to provide the travelling public, travel trade and travel media with one single place where the contact details of the world’s tourist offices can be found. It offers detailed practical information, assets and travel features on our member destinations with useful links to help make your journey easier and safer.
The ANTOR Community is united in working together to support the travelling public and travel industry at this unprecedented time. Please check the FCDO website for individual destination travel advice. Many of our members are also posting official destination responses in the Covid room.
It has come to our attention there is another antor website available online. We would like to take this opportunity to avoid any confusion and remind you that we are the original antor not-for-profit (Association of National Tourist Offices and Representatives, founded in 1951), and do not have any financial, legal or commercial links with www.antor.org or any of the antor overseas chapters.
ANTOR's purpose is to promote safe, ethical, sustainable and inspirational global travel for all.
Our objectives include supporting our members in crisis, providing a fraternal forum for our members to meet and exchange ideas, to forge close relationships with all other sectors of the travel industry; to be recognised as one of the foremost advocates of responsible and safe tourism, to comment on a wide range of issues affecting worldwide travel and tourism and to connect the travelling public with our members.
Tourism is an essential pillar of the world's economy and livelihoods of many countries depend on it, especially the most vulnerable. In many parts of the world, the protection of biodiversity relies heavily on the tourism sector, from conservation to the revenue generated.
