Expert offers "sensible" steps for low carbon travel

Expert offers
Travellers can take a number of "sensible" steps to reduce their carbon footprint while enjoying their holiday, according to the founder of a low carbon awareness advice firm.

John Buckley of Carbon Footprint stated that when travelling to a destination such as France, taking the train has a lower environmental impact than flying.

He added that once travellers arrive at their final destination, there are a number of other measures they can take to reduce their environmental impact - such as cycling, exploring by using the public transit system and making sure the air conditioning is turned down in hotel rooms during the daytime.

"If you do have to hire a car, don't go for the biggest gas-guzzler. Be sensible and go for one that is likely to have lower carbon emissions," Mr Buckley suggested.

"Use the same common sense that you'd use if you were at home - when you're not in the room, turn the television off," he added.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18559161-ADNFCR
