Alpine train journeys can be truly stunning! Alpine train journeys can be truly stunning!
Ever since we ran our first trips in 2007, we have been committed to keeping the world's most beautiful places pristine by minimising our environmental impact. As protecting our environment and reducing carbon emissions becomes an important part of our lives, there are steps we can take to reduce our carbon footprints while holiday planning. Travelling by public transport instead of by plane or car is an easy way in which we can make our travel greener.


  • Reasons to reconsider how we travel


    • To reduce harmful emissions and protect the environment we enjoy so much
    • Travel by public transport can be part of your holiday, see the scenery changing
    • Add a greater sense of adventure to your journey and meet new people
    • Buses, coaches, trains and ferries are usually more spacious than aeroplanes
    • The vast rail network across Europe means you can access almost anywhere by train
    • The Eurostar is a quick way to access Europe from the UK (2 hrs15 London – Paris)
    • More flexility to explores new cities or areas en route to your destination
    • Prepare with a language app while journeying, such as Duolingo or Babbel

Enjoying the scenery by train is a very relaxing way to travel to your holiday destination

How to plan your journey by public transport


  • For planning train travel we recommend using Rail Europe and Trainline to book your tickets and plan routes
  • Travelling by coach, large operators like Eurolines, Flixbus and Ouibus offer reliable and inexpensive options 
  • Busabout is a great option for adding travel before or after your holiday, with discounted excursions included
  • For car sharing we recommend sticking to large companies like Rome to Rio and BlaBlaCar
