Question

Is CO2 compensation for flights or other means of transport already included in the sales prices of all travel products?

Dutch version: Is CO2 compensatie voor vluchten of andere vormen van vervoer standaard bij de prijs van alle reisproducten inbegrepen?

German version: Ist die Kompensation von Treibhausgasemissionen zur An- und Abreise zum Urlaubsort in den Preisen der Reiseangebote inbegriffen?

References

Some travel organizations already include CO2 compensation with every travel product that they offer. Therefore compensation is NOT chosen voluntarily by the customer. For more background information, see Tour Operators and Travel Agencies Climate Change Question 7.
