European Impressions (24 destinations)Read moreNotes "Contiki has launched a brand new initiative that tackles the carbon emission issues of coach travel. Although coach travel means that there can sometimes be up to 20 cars less worth of carbon dioxide, which is great, any contributions damaging the environment need to be addressed. Their new fleet of Euro 6 coaches fuse luxury and sustaibability with the use of Adblue- an aqueous urea solution that clings to emission particles converting them into a harmless mix of nitrogen and water. Additionally, Contiki uses bio-bags for all recyclables to ensure an environmentally friendly disposal."
