It’s no secret air travel is not so good for the environment, and airlines are already doing their part to ensure they’re a little greener than they have been in the past, but one airline is also giving passengers a chance to take matters into their own hands by opting to fly with “climate-friendly” fuel.


German carrier Lufthansa incorporated the Compensaid program into its technology to allow travelers to reduce their carbon footprint by up to 80 percent. To purchase this sustainable aviation fuel, travelers can choose this option at checkout, but depending on the distance traveled, the price of the fuel can often meet or exceed the cost of the ticket.


Alternatively, travelers also can opt to donate money to reforestation efforts at varying costs.


Compensaid is the airline industry’s first web platform that allows travelers to calculate CO2 emissions, but other airlines are taking steps to become more green as well, including KLM’s “Fly Responsibly” program that nudges travelers to consider taking the train instead of a plane for shorter flights. United  pledged to cut emissions by half by the year 2050 by introducing more fuel-efficient planes to its fleets and growing its use of biofuels.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
