Insight Cares

Our Commitment

As a leading global travel company, Insight Vacations has the opportunity to positively impact the destinations in which we operate. We believe that it is our responsibility to ensure that the world’s natural habitats, cultural heritage sites and communities we interact with remain healthy and vibrant, and grow with us.

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 Insight Vacations 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.

Join Our Journey - Elimination of Single Use Plastics

In a bid to ensure we #MakeTravelMatter and tread as lightly as possible in the places we visit, Insight Vacations has committed to eliminating all non-essential Single Use Plastics from all its operations by 2022. In 2019 we’ve taken the step to stop the sale of single-use plastic bottles on our coaches. We estimate this will eliminate about 5 tons of plastic waste in the next five years. We hope you’ll join us on this important journey and bring a reusable water bottle on your trip. Your Travel Director will be happy to direct you to potable water along your itinerary.

Carbon Offsetting

As part of our continuing sustainability journey, we feel it’s increasingly important to provide our guests and our team with the necessary tools and information to allow them to make responsible travel choices whenever possible. With this in mind, we are now happy to provide you with opportunities to carbon offset your travel experience.

If you’re looking to offset your carbon footprint for an upcoming or previous travel experience, our not-for-profit TreadRight has identified for us three leading carbon offset programs - Conservation International Carbon Fund, myclimate, The Nature Conservancy, and Rainforest Concern – Forest Credits - that provide travellers with a number of ways in which to offset your travel experiences and a variety of carbon offset projects to choose from.
