Best Western Opera Liege

Best Western Opera Liege Become the First Zero Single-Use Plastic Hotel

Customer protection guarantee

Best Western Opera Liege is the first hotel to replace all their single-use plastic. Opera Liege have been working with “Racing For The Ocean” to help with this transformation. Opera Liege has moved from a single-use plastic consumer to a zero-waste ambassador. The transformation is set to be complete by the end of February 2020.

Every year the hotel was utilizing more than 24,000 plastic bottles, 55,000 cosmetic packages and 16,000 plastic bags. Best Western Opera Liege have replaced single-use plastics with bamboo products and amenities. All single-use plastic products are being removed from all 50 rooms and suites.


The transformation started off small with changes to the keycards and the materials used for laundry bags, slippers and bin bags. Wooden keycards are the new alternative for access to the rooms. Most products and amenities for guests are now made from bamboo. Biodegradable coffee capsules (made from paper) are compatible with the Nespresso machines that feature in every room.

Best Western Opera Liege have also created sustainable bathroom products that contribute to their transformation. Instead of having three bottles containing shampoo, conditioner and body wash, they have created a soap like bar three-in-one containing all three substances. Guests can also make use of a lozenge like toothpaste with bamboo toothbrush.

Additionally the hotel offers glass bottles that you may refill from the numerous water fountains. Their breakfast and bar services will no longer offer or serve products with any plastic packaging.

France has set a target for 2040 to phase out all single-use plastics.

What Our Clients Say

Saving our customers time and money

Working within the entertainment sector to provide the ultimate in flexibility and service as well a proactive approach towards account management. In 2016 a trans-Atlantic artist management firm approached Your Travel Corporate to construct a travel plan for its UK and USA offices with an annual spend of £750,000.

Prior to working with Your Travel Corporate, the firm had contracted the services of another national travel agent. During the 12 months spent working with this agency, there were significant challenges in service delivery which led to multiple issues, lack of proactive account management and limited delivery of policy compliance.

After a problematic year, the firm took the decision to move away from their substandard agent and seek to engage a new agent – they chose Your Travel Corporate for several reasons;

–       The ability to work with a dedicated account manager and director, ensuring a positive relationship and understand of needs was built from the outset.

–       Our ability to understand and implement client objectives pro-actively.

–       Our personal and bespoke approach to client service.

 Results;

With our unique understanding of travel management and the importance of getting it right first time, we could map out a plan to move the firms travel management to Your Travel Corporate, with adequate and well thought out milestones, ensuring that our account management team worked effectively with the firms PA, EA and account team enabling the delivery of a full operational service within 3 months. A third quarter report shows a 19% saving on travel spend and we’re pleased to say that we’ve had extremely positive feedback from our client!
