|At STA Travel we employ more than 2,500 staff globally and indirectly employ many more throughout our supply chain. As an employer, we take our responsibility to these people very seriously and want to ensure that as well as having safe and comfortable working environments, our team has the opportunities they need to develop and grow with the company and are well supported.||
We spend our days talking about all the amazing adventures STA Travel has to offer, and empower our customers to take every opportunity to enjoy life-changing experiences. It is therefore only right that we do all we can to preserve the planet for future generations by reducing our environmental impact. At STA Travel, we are committed to making a positive impact upon the lives of people, communities and the environment around the world. STA Travel offers travel scholarships to university students to help subsidize travel costs in order to help students travel who wouldn't otherwise be able to.
|We work with credible partners to secure travel experiences that are not only authentic, but also responsible and sustainable as well as regularly assessing all of our operations to ensure that we can be proud of how we do our business. We are constantly assessing the ways in which we work and welcome any suggestions from our customers and suppliers alike.|

STA Travel has commenced a full audit of all tours that involve direct or indirect contact with animals, and to date has discontinued the sale of the Tiger Temple tour in Thailand, San Fermin Festival tours in Pamplona, and a lion research project in Zambia. We have also replaced all tours which include elephant riding with alternative activities.
Although there may be some legacy reference material to these products still available, these tours are no longer available for sale through STA Travel.
STA Travel is committed to delivering good practice in animal protection and welfare in our products, and we take our customers concerns seriously.
We have worked closely with all our suppliers to ensure the product we distribute aligns with our animal policy.
