Holborn, London (PRWEB) April 19, 2007
British Airways' new service from Gatwick to Cornwall has caused a dispute between environmentalists and the airline industry as a result of the increase in global warming by carbon emissions from airplanes. Door2Tour is offering customers the chance to travel in one of the most environmentally friendly methods of transport, only emitting 0.01 tons of CO2 on the 260 mile journey to Cornwall when compared to the 0.1 ton of CO2 emitted by plane.
Booking a holiday with Door2Tour not only offers customers a worldwide choice of holidays but also gives them the peace of mind that they are travelling in one of the most environmentally friendly forms of transport. Recent studies have proven that modern touring coaches emit lower levels of ozone-damaging CO2 emissions per passenger kilometre travelled when compared to air travel, driving your own car or taking the train.
Dan Fox, General Manager of Door2Tour said: "With the recent environmental issues caused by travelling within the UK and abroad, we think it is extremely important for travellers to be aware of the impact their journey is having on the environment. Coaching is not only one of the most environmentally friendly methods of transport but also extremely comfortable and affordable. Customers booking through Door2Tour.com can choose from over 5,000 holiday tours departing from hundreds of regional UK departure points whilst also helping to reduce carbon emissions."
