Travel in a way that's kind to the planet
3 ways to make your travel greener
Sustainable travel simply means moving around in a way which is kinder to the planet. It’s becoming more and more popular and there are plenty of ways you can travel more sustainably:
These boots were made for walking
We’re lucky to live in places which have some amazing scenery, so take advantage of this and take more journeys on foot. It’s cheaper, keeps you fit and cuts down emissions.
On your bike
Check out the local cycle routes in your area and see when you could hop on two wheels instead of four. Many employers have a cycle to work scheme which offer discounts on bikes so see what’s available to you.
Catch the bus
If you’re going further afield check what public transport is available. Travelling on a bus produces lower emissions per person than a car.
Running an electric vehicle can be cheaper than a conventional motor as there are fewer parts to service and you save on the cost of fuel. Look into electric vehicle dealers in your area to save pennies and the planet.
Did you know that in Jersey new registered electric vehicles get free parking in all States of Jersey car parks until 31 December 2021?
In Guernsey electric vehicles don’t have to pay emissions duty.
In the Isle of Man you can get a cheaper tariff for your electric vehicle?
Holiday closer to home
Many tourists come to our islands for holidays each year but how many places have you visited on your own doorstep? By holidaying at home you can learn more about your local area and support local business. Plus less car rides and plane journeys means less emissions.
