Is there a role for small fees to encourage ecoconscious travel habits?
Numerous fees aim to “nickel and dime” the traveller to generate additional income streams for airlines, resorts and hotels. However there could be an unintended benefit of several hotel service fees to encourage compliance with eco-beneficial practices. By charging for towels used, travellers are inclined to re-use them each day by hanging them up to dry on bathroom racks for the duration of their holiday. This reduces laundering and housekeeping costs. Charging for all but the first bottle of complimentary water encourages travellers to reuse the bottle to refill with fresh or boiled tap water suitable for drinking. The time is ripe that the eco-aware tourist be rewarded for their effort by not being charged these fees.
