Carbon Offset Scheme

As a specialist tour operator with an on-going commitment to sustainable tourism we seek wherever we can to counter the effect our industry has upon the environment. 

Optin & Offset - Carbon Offset Program from The Gambia Experience

As a specialist tour operator with an on-going commitment to Sustainable tourism, we offer our customers the chance to offset some of the environmental damage aircraft emissions cause. We work with Dick Sisman, founder of the Tourism Industry Climate Change Service (TICOS) and former managing Director of Green Globe and Green Flag International, offering you the chance to help offset some of the environmental damage aircraft emissions cause. By opting into our Carbon Offset Scheme, your donation will be invested into our new Gambian community tree planting programme which not only offers carbon benefits but at the same time economically supports rural villages.

Although we are currently only collecting monies for projects in The Gambia, we are constantly researching potential projects in other destinations for future initiatives.

How it Works

When a booking is made for a holiday or flight, whether it is over the phone, on our website, through a travel agent or by invoice, there will be an option to carbon offset the flight for the additional cost of £5 per person for flights to The Gambia, Senegal or Cape Verde or £3 per person for flights to Corsica or Sardinia.

Further information on the scheme will be sent out with the invoices so unless bookings are within 8 weeks of travel, a decision doesn't have to be made straightaway. Paying the offset sum is optional so if a decision is made to opt out the amount is simply deducted from the invoice when payment is made; alternatively this can be done verbally with a sales representative.
 
Climate change is a worldwide problem and whilst we cannot solve it, we can all pull together to make a difference!!
