Quality assurance management

Quality assurance management

The Pralognan-la-Vanoise Tourist office is committed to providing the highest quality service possible, and continuously works with local stakeholders and partners to improve the overall level of service and satisfaction.

We use Qualité Tourisme™ certification guidelines.
Created by the French Ministry of Tourism, Qualité Tourisme™ certification means that a Tourist Office implements a continuous improvement policy that targets quality of service. Thorough audits take place every 5 years. This national approach to quality brings together tourism providers of all types under the same big tent: hotels, apartment hotels, seasonal rental agencies, places to visit, and outdoor sports..

It ensures trust and guarantees a level of service quality provided by professionals to visitors.
