Travel Advocacy Group - TAG Approved

LGBTQ+ Welcoming Hotels Worldwide

IGLTA welcomes TAG Approved® members

TAG, the Travel Advocacy Group, is a collection of LGBTQ+ welcoming accommodations that have completed a qualification process based on their employment policies, services and support for the LGBTQ+ community.

TAG Approved® was created in 1998 by IGLTA member Community Marketing & Insights, which has proudly provided our industry with research and training since 1992. The program will now evolve into a new chapter within our global association, while maintaining its commitment to providing accommodations with better ways to serve LGBTQ+ travelers.
