Bring a reusable water bottle

Forget buying a plastic bottle of water at the street corner when exploring your next new city. Bring your own reusable (foldable) water bottle instead. Many cities offer free and clean drinking water in museums and other tourist hotspots. And don’t forget you can always fill up your bottle at the public toilet sink.

Choose a ‘green’ rental car

Some of the biggest car rental companies out there have a selection of ‘green’ cars in their fleet. Hertz, Avis and Europcar all have their own special selection of ‘green’ vehicles. Pick one of these cars for your next road trip. The rent of these cars can be a bit higher than normal cars, but don’t forget the amount of money you will pay for gas along the way. At the end of your trip your choice for a green car can save you a lot of money.
