Electric car self drive holiday in Croatia
Description of Electric car self drive holiday in Croatia
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetA huge benefit of this trip is the chance to travel using a fully electric vehicle, making use of the increasing network of charging points across the country.
We have chosen to include places to stay where public transport is more than adequate for sightseeing so that the car is not used with towns or national parks; the use of such a variety of transport enables you to interact more fully with the locals, to practice your language and to minimise your carbon footprint somewhat. By including the opportunity to visit the National Parks on this holiday you choose to contribute to the excellent record of conservation in recent years through the entrance fees.
As a company we employ responsible policies such as recycling paper, ink cartridges, glass and cardboard; we minimise the use of electricity and conducting the vast majority of our correspondence and promotion via the internet and email, minimizing the amount of paper used for our activities. We also compost waste in our company garden.
PeopleThe majority of accommodation on this holiday is in family run, small hotels. The food in these hotels is primarily sourced locally and a large number of dishes on the menus are home made. We encourage you to engage local guides in places where their expertise and local knowledge will enhance your experience and understanding of the historical context and on the environmental impact of your visit. In many places you will see the evidence for and read about the impact of the war; the cost of rebuilding and repairing the historic buildings, some of which are protected by UNESCO has been enormous and every contribution made by visitors will help.
As well as supporting the local community and economy directly our holidays also encourage support indirectly. The latter because through more interaction with local people and engaging local tourist service providers engenders greater understanding and respect which almost always leads to larger and more careful spending by visitors.
