Holidaymakers can save money and emissions with green travel

Holidaymakers can save money and emissions with green travel
Low-carbon travel is appealing to people even during the recession because it offers them savings to their finances, as well as peace of mind.

That is according to website Go Green Travel Green, a travel website specialising in green holidays, which stated that low-carbon forms of transport are arguably even more important to people heading abroad since the financial downturn.

Elizabeth Sanberg, co-founder of the company, said: "[Holidaymakers] will save a lot of money by travelling green.

"For example, a traveller who takes a train or a bus instead of an aeroplane will save hundreds of dollars per trip as well as reducing their carbon footprint."

With the UK government indicating plans to build a high-speed train network as an alternative to short-haul flights, a similar sentiment was recently expressed by responsibletravel.com.

The website's spokesperson, Krissy Roe, suggested that eco-minded holidaymakers will not only find that they can save money but also that travelling from A to B can become a more enjoyable experience.

Last month, the government gave a boost to the UK's low-carbon transport network by revealing plans for £1.1 billion of electrification work.
