Tips for more sustainable mobility

The Trip

  • Plan your trip well and take into consideration different means of transportation (e. g., bus, train).
  • Avoid flights if possible, above all short-haul flights. If you fly, book nonstop flights.
  • Travel with little luggage. This also makes it easier to avoid taking a taxi after you arrive.
  • Compensate for CO2 emissions.
  • Print out your travel documents only if it is absolutely necessary.

  • Discover the surrounding area in the host country instead of driving far.
  • Take public transportation when you check out the host country.
  • If you travel throughout the country, stay in environmentally friendly accommodation and support sustainable tourism.
