Planet

Together with the The Travel Corporation (TTC), we are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our business and safeguarding the future of our planet. That's why we are taking steps to eliminate single-use plastics in our operations, reduce our footprint by offering e-documents to our guests (and planting a tree in their name if they select this option), and ensure that our modes of transportation are as efficient and eco-friendly as possible.

E-Documents

We use e-docs for a greener future: Your documents will be delivered electronically in PDF format 2-3 weeks prior to departure. Thanks to travelling paper free, you’re supporting our sustainability efforts to reduce our environmental impact wherever possible.

Reusable Water Bottles

Working toward our long-term goal of removing single-use plastics from our operations, we’re proud to provide Luxury Gold guests with elegant, reusable water bottles so you can stay hydrated the environmentally friendly way. We commit to providing potable drinking water for you along your tour in a sustainable way.

Why Go Coach?

Coach travel has been proven to reduce congestion and create less pollution per passenger kilometre than any other form of transport. Coach travel creates approximately 85% less CO2 per passenger kilometre than car and air travel, and nearly 40% less CO2 per passenger kilometre than rail travel.

The Luxury Gold coach fleet is among the most efficient in Europe, complying with EU emissions standards. Over the past two decades EU emissions standards have made it so that Euro Emissions 6 registered vehicles create up to 97% less particulate emissions and 95% less nitrogen oxide emissions than those vehicles meeting previous Euro Emissions standards.

Coach travel causes less pollution per passenger mile than any other transportation option.

Our Carbon Footprint

At Luxury Gold, we are conscious of our carbon footprint and have made a commitment to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030 or sooner. To achieve this, we are measuring the emissions associated with our owned offices and properties, as well as those associated with our business air travel, and waste and water use. We have in place a carbon management plan to drawdown our direct emissions before offsetting unavoidable emissions with high-quality, verified carbon offsets. We will drawdown our emissions through clean energy, low-emission transportation, conservation and through the support of emerging low-impact technologies.

Luxury Gold is in the process of measuring the carbon footprint of our tours with the goal of offsetting these tours in future years. Stay tuned for more!

CARBON OFFSETS

Luxury Gold has partnered with leading offset provider South Pole to offset our business, allowing us to offset what we cannot reduce. You too can purchase carbon offsets to cancel out the emissions produced by your travels. South Pole has 700+ high quality, and verifiable offset projects to choose from around the world.
