With the ever growing awareness of our impact on the planet, many people are now looking into ways to reduce their carbon emissions or to offset their effects. In addition to alternative travel choices, we encourage our customers to offset the carbon emissions from their travel to help reduce environmental impact.
With the ever growing awareness of our impact on the planet, many people are now looking into ways to reduce their carbon emissions or to offset their effects. Many of our European destinations can be reached by a combination of Eurostar and high-speed rail links (with lower emissions than an equivalent flight) - and our sales team will be happy to provide you with a tailor-made quote for Eurostar/rail packages where this is possible. However you choose to travel you can easily calculate the carbon emissions for your journey and make a donation to offset their effects.
The World Land Trust is an international conservation charity, supported by Sir David Attenborough and Bill Oddie. Since its foundation in 1989 as the World Wide Land Conservation Trust, the World Land Trust has been working to preserve the world's most biologically important and threatened lands, and has helped purchase and protect over 375,000 acres of habitats rich in wildlife, in Belize, Costa Rica, the Philippines, South America and the UK. The land they help to save is owned by local organisations, protected as nature reserves for the benefit of both wildlife and people.
The restoration ecology projects run by the World Land Trust under their Carbon Balanced programme deliver much more than a measurable offset for CO2 emissions and you can help them to continue their work by offsetting the carbon emissions for your holiday.
