Make Travel Matter

The Red Carnation Hotel Collection is a proud member of The Travel Corporation (TTC), founded by the Tollman family and serving over two million customers in over 70 countries each year.

Principal to TTC’s family of brands is support of the TreadRight Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation united by the Tollmans’ passion to make our travels around the globe count for something.

At Red Carnation, our sustainable initiatives are at the heart of everything we do, from installing solar panels and reusing waste water in our hotels to supporting local charities. We keep our own bees to produce honey, thus reducing food miles, and sustain a living wall of 10,000 herbaceous plants at The Rubens at the Palace. We are proud that all of our properties are restored with the greatest care to surrounding habitats and communities.

On an ever-wider scale, TreadRight has supported more than 50 sustainable tourism projects worldwide, leaving a positive impact on local people, wildlife and the planet. We look forward to continuing our work to make the world a better place.
