Yes, you read that right; this is actually a travel company
suggesting we might all travel less. Let us explain. For starters,
we're not advocating giving up travel. If you're on this website,
that idea is likely every bit as anathema to you as it is to us.
Seeing the wider world and marvelling at other cultures and
landscapes is quite simply one of the reasons for being alive.
Rather, the 'Travel Less' part can mean flying less but staying
longer (such as on a sabbatical); or flying less and
taking more train or
road trips. We're eminently
relaxed about either of these options, and when you do actually
fly, you can do so safe in the knowledge that we off-set 100% of the carbon emissions.
How to Travel Better
And on the subject of better, the challenge to 'Travel Better'
is one we relish. In fact, helping our clients do just that has
been our mission every day since we launched back in 2003. Again,
in terms of interpretation, 'better' can mean a number of things.
Better might mean only jumping on a plane to go and do the
bucket list trips of your dreams; or being a better traveller
by practicing 'Philantourism'
Back' when away. Better can also refer to the process of travel
itself; availing yourself of Original
Travel's additional services such as fast track and lounge
access at the airport (which has never been more important) or
challenging our clued-up Concierges
to show you a side to a destination only a local would know.
Whichever way you want to interpret the phrase, we're here to help
you navigate the new travel landscape, and travel better.
