We have published a carbon score for all but our newest holidays. Here's a little background information...
What is a carbon score?
A holiday’s carbon score is the average amount of carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere by each person taking that holiday. Obviously how you travel to your chosen destination (plane, train etc) and whether you add extra nights will also have an impact.
How did we calculate it?
The score takes into account the likely energy consumption per night at each hotel, transfers (including luggage transfers), the number of included meals (and therefore likely food miles), and indeed anything else included in the holiday, such as car hire.
Why are we doing it?
One reason is to enable you to compare different holidays. Another key reason is to help us to reduce our carbon footprint – we’ve set ourselves the target of cutting it by 50% by 2030, and reaching net zero by 2050, but we can only do this if we know what it is in the first place.
