Accommodation - We're Good To Go
Dorset’s hotels, campsites, self catering cottages and B&Bs are getting ready to welcome you.
Some accommodation businesses have achieved the ‘We’re Good to Go’, AA COVID-19 Confident or Safe, Clean & Legal™ certificates. These certificates show the business has worked hard to ensure that the safety of their guests and staff are a top priority by carefully putting in place the necessary procedures that have been provided by the government.
These businesses have gone the extra mile, and sometimes above and beyond what the guidelines state for their guests wellbeing and enjoyment of their holiday to Dorset.
This all goes to help ensure that you not only feel confident to visit Dorset but also that you will have a great time during your stay.
We're Good To Go
'We’re Good To Go' is the new official UK mark to signal that a tourism and hospitality business has worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and has processes in place to maintain cleanliness, aid social distancing and for training staff. They will also be alerted if guidelines change so you can be confident that the business is up to date and following the very latest guidance.

Businesses which welcome international visitors may also display the World Travel & Tourism Council’s Safe Travel stamp enabling travellers to recognise destinations around the world which have adopted global standardised protocols.
You can now search for businesses which have achieved this mark on the Good To Go website.
The AA COVID-19 Confident scheme
The AA has also launched a COVID-19 Confident assessment scheme which aims to support the hospitality industry and help to rebuild consumer confidence. The award indicates to customers that an establishment has put in place the necessary risk assessment and safety measures to re-open safely in line with the UK's respective government guidelines.
More information regarding the AA Covid-19 Confident scheme can be found on the Rated Trips website.

Quality in Tourism - Safe, Clean & Legal™
The Safe, Clean & Legal scheme™ from Quality in Tourism ensures that businesses have the correct documentation and checks in place, from fire safety to food safety, confirming that the accommodation meets or exceeds minimum standards.
The accreditation demonstrates the accommodation's commitment to standards, reassuring potential guests that they have appropriate standards and that they have been inspected by an independent third party.
The scheme has been running since 2018, but has been updated to reflect additional requirements and standards for travel in the post-COVID era.
