Our customers are entitled to reliable and customer-oriented services. To live up to our standards of quality and our customers various expectations, one of ebab's earliest main goals was optimising its quality of service.<br />From the start in 1996, a quality management system was integrated into the company.

Quality in our agency work

For us as service providers, quality management means analysing our working systems constantly, thus creating a continuous improvement process. It is extremely important to us that our customers' requirements are respected in this process.

Quality of our accommodation

ebab.de offers accommodations all over the world. The differences in individual countries styles and standards of home furnishing become particularly apparent here. This especially applies to our private accommodation.

These differences typical of the individual countries make comparing different properties quite difficult. Because of this, we have developed regional entry standards based on the following criteria: accommodation size, price, location and amenities. Hereby we want to ensure that all our accommodation provides good quality consistently. Furthermore, we believe in long-term relationships with our future hosts and enter into a detailed contract with each of them. In addition to this, we have different quality rankings depending on the accommodation's cost-effectiveness which is mostly assessed with quality control tests.
In the case of non-private accommodation, we also adhere to internationally accepted guidelines as well as to our own quality standards.

Guest-rankings from guests who have previously booked the accommodation in question provide you with further information on our accommodation's quality.
We are delighted to have so much good and very good quality accommodation on offer. Our guests confirm this regularly via our ranking system!

You can see immediately how our offers rank by looking at the three green bars in the accommodation description.

We believe that in the future, only corporate concepts equally respectful of social, ecological and economic aspects will be viable in the long run.

This is why we as a company feel we have a special responsibility towards our customers, the lesbian-gay community, society as a whole as well as towards our planet.

ebab consequently is committed to meeting its responsibilities as best possible in many different ways. In doing so, we want to contribute to a juster society and a more sustainable use of natural resources. Each and every one of our customers supports us in this endeavour with their confidence!

Sustainability

Here are some concrete details on what sustainable corporate management really means to ebab :

Renewable Energy


In 2007, we changed our company's energy sources to 100% renewable sources because we believe that a little sunshine makes life much easier!

Energy Efficiency


Using electronic devices is an indispensable part of our job. Here, we also remain true to our principle of protecting resources. Energy-efficient technologies play a very important role in this context, as do energy-saving lighting and avoiding leaving electronic devices in standby-mode.

Reducing our Carbon Footprint


As from the beginning of 2009, in order to neutralise CO2-emissions produced by business trips and company car use, we have become involved in climate protection projects. Those we support are UN-accredited CDM Gold Standard projects. Our guiding principle is: Avoid CO2-emissions, reduce the remaining emissions as much as possible and make up for what cannot be avoided!

Environment-friendly Office Supplies


Having as environment-friendly office supplies as possible is very important to us. This applies to furnishings as much as to consumable items. We value maximum recycling rates and refrain from using pollutant materials whenever possible. Furthermore, we attach great importance to our sources of supply and routes of transport.

Waste Avoidance


Among other things we strive to optimise our software in order to reduce the amount of paper we use. We also carry out most of our business correspondence via e-mail and contribute to waste avoidance in smaller ways, too, e.g. using misprints as scrap paper.

Recycling


Whenever possible, we recycle our waste as this protects resources effectively and consistently.
