Statement on Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

 

This Statement on Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking 2015/16 is made in pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015

 

This outlines the steps that ITC Travel Group has taken, and is continuing to take, to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within our Group or supply chain.

 

Introduction

Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour and is recognised as a global issue. Modern Slavery is a criminal activity and a gross violation of fundamental human rights. We recognise that every area of our business has the potential to be impacted by this serious issue, and the Group has therefore implemented a policy for the prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery within its businesses and their supply chains.

 

Our Business

ITC Travel Group is a UK based travel business, established in 1974.

Villa Select is a specialist provider of private villa holidays to Europe and beyond.

Based in Alcester, they were brought into the ITC Travel Group in 2015; having since expanded their portfolio to offer an even greater selection of top destinations for holidays ‘en masse’.

Established for more than 35 years, Villa Select prides itself on a bespoke service for each client and the breadth of its villa portfolio.

We have 208 staff across the Group, and operate in the United Kingdom with an office in Barbados. We work with several suppliers, mainly hotel partners, Destination Management Companies and airlines.

 

Our Outlook

ITC Travel Group has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and to putting effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within our businesses or their supply chains. We recognise that we cannot unilaterally solve this problem, but we are committed to doing our part.
