Travel Tips for Families On the Go

Top 10 Eco Travel Tips 

By Irene Lane


The statistics are promising! According to TripAdvisor's 2011 Travel Trends survey, 47 % of vacation planners take eco-friendly factors, such as their own carbon footprint or green hotel policies into consideration when deciding on a vacation destination or activity, and 20 % are expected to be more environmentally conscious in their travel choices overall.


1. Look for legitimate eco-certification labels: As you search through a tourism provider's website, look for its responsible tourism policies.


2. Use public transportation: Hybrid car rentals are wonderful if they are available, but try taking a train or boat to your destination instead.


3. Search green accommodation sites: The Rainforest Alliance as well as It's a Green Green World sites list beautiful, eco-friendly accommodations that fit all budgets and that have been verified as responsible eco-lodgings.
