At Charitable Travel, we believe travel can be a force for good. This is why we sacrifice around half of our commission on every sale so that you can book amazing holidays at prices you’ll love, whilst supporting the great causes you care about. But it doesn’t stop there. We’re also passionate about helping you make responsible and sustainable choices with your travel plans. We do this by doing all the leg work for you, comparing flight options to find the lowest emission options, choosing eco-friendly accredited hotels, promoting sustainable excursions and responsible practises, and more.
Travelling by train from London to Paris emits just 6.3% of the amount of carbon emitted by the same journey by plane. We know that travelling by train, whilst being the more sustainable option, isn’t always the most efficient. That’s why we’re offering you the choice of flying one way on selected city breaks. Enjoy a leisurely rail trip to some fantastic European cities (and make the journey part of the holiday), before flying home.
How does this city break compare?
– Travel time by train is 19 hours in total (1 change) and the return flight home 2.5 hours
– Emissions: Flying 1148km produces on average 0.19 of C02 emissions per passenger versus 0.007 tonnes for the same distance by train

For many, the most beautiful city in the world, Venice has an eternal and poignant charm and is today among the world capitals of contemporary art. Timeless and magical, the soul of Venice is made up of 118 islands united together by more than 400 bridges, separated by canals that act as waterways, forever bustling with gondolas and boats in a never-ending back-and-forth. It only takes a little while to escape the most crowded paths and find yourself in quiet, almost deserted alleys and small squares. And then, of course, there are some of the most beautiful and famous museums and monuments in the world, as well as legendary international events such as the Biennale, the Film Festival, the Carnival. Venice is the ideal setting for anything from a sunrise or sunset over the lagoon to a candlelit dinner, from a stroll to a quick drink enjoyed in a typical Venetian bacaro. There is one certainty in Venice: your memories will be unforgettable.
