USEFUL INFORMATION ON COACH TRAVEL

 

Coach Travel is the greenest form of travel and the most environmentally friendly way to go on a short-haul holiday.

 

Research in 2007 by the Institute for Energy & Environmental Research in Heidelberg for RDA, the International Coach Tourism Federation, showed that coach travel uses six times less energy than planes, six times less energy than cars and two times less energy than trains.

 

Coaches are also seven times safer per mile than a car while a gallon of fuel will pro-rata take two people traveling by coach six times further than by car. Gone are the days when an old bus took people to the seaside for a day trip, today passengers travel in ultra modern, air-conditioned coaches with all mod-cons, costing as much as 350,000.00 Euro.
