Holiday emission rates: from the road to your abode
A flight to a hotel in Turkey or an Airbnb in Ibiza? A train journey to southwest Cornwall or the Scottish Highlands? A campervan road trip through Europe or a motorhome staycation in the UK? Your choice of holiday is intrinsically linked to the amount of CO2 released into the atmosphere.
