CleanAndSafePortugal.org has launched to assist tourists in searching for establishments compliant with the Clean&Safe Portugal, a local tourism authority initiative for high standards of hygiene and cleaning requirements for the prevention and control of Covid-19.
Tourists traveling to Portugal now have a user friendly alternative, to the existing option, to find compliant establishments.
The platform allows tourists to check if their favorite accommodation or restaurant is up to date in clean and safe procedures as well as help finding the location of compliant establishments on the map and provides the ability to “Get Directions” making it easier for travelers to get around.
Travelers are also able to review establishments, as to their degree of satisfaction with the business's performance regarding compliance with the requirements of the Clean&Safe stamp.
This feature allows not only local authorities to monitor the degree of compliance by Portuguese establishments but also to inform other Tourists of what to expect.
With over 10,000 establishments already listed, CleanAndSafePortugal.org aims to be the number one Clean&Safe Certified travel related businesses resource for tourists traveling to Portugal.
It also includes a free registry webform for individuals and business owners to confirm and promote their commitment to following best practices for safety.
Businesses in Portugal are provided with a window cling and web badge, with the Clean&Safe Seal, that identifies their commitment to following health and safety guidelines to keep employees and customers safe in their places of business.
Visitors traveling to Portugal should look for this badge as a sign of the business’ commitment to safety as they plan their trip.
CleanAndSafePortugal.org platform provides an informational resource where visitors and residents can search for businesses taking the proper safety measures to keep everyone safe.
Portuguese businesses that have direct contact with visitors (Hotels, Restaurants, Vacation Rentals, Tourist Attractions) are permitted to advertise themselves as a "Safe&Clean" Establishment after being awarded the "Safe&Clean" Seal and committing to the specified stringent cleaning measures.
The CleaAndSafePortugal.org platform utility for futures travelers, is accentuated by the recent award by the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC). Portugal is the first country in Europe to receive the "Safe Travels" prize, recognizing Portugal as a safe health and safety destination in the post covid-19 world and allowing the Portuguese tourism industry to stand out yet again.
"Portugal was a pioneer in the launch of the Clean & Safe label. This WTTC label comes to reward the effort that has been made by all. The best destination in the world is also recognized as the safest in the world," said the Portuguese Ministry of State for the Economy and Digital Transition in a statement.
