BookSmart24 is an environmentally conscious travel booking App for global markets.
Proprietary flight and travel booking engines analyze the environmental impact of each trip and prioritize the most carbon efficient option for easy selection. Duration and price are compared with the individual CO2 impact of each itinerary. Thus the best travel option between two points is offered, always prioritizing low CO2 impact schedules.
The BookSmart24 SmartChoice is the best option for any trip: Lowest Emissions, Competitive Price, Comfortable Travel Duration.
Travelers often have little or no information on the environmental impact of their booking choices and more sustainable alternatives.
Research by various industry players reveals that people are receptive to information about the environmental footprint of their travel. In addition, it has been found that travelers are willing to pay more for more sustainable travel. In this context, consumers around the world are demanding better information on the environmental impact of different travel options.
BookSmart24 takes an important step by enabling travelers to easily identify the most sustainable flight for any city pair and compare it with the price and trip length of alternative travel options.
Think about it for a moment:
One kilogram of CO2 has a volume of 509 liters. Or, to better illustrate, a normal balloon has a volume of about 2.5 liters, so one kilogram of CO2 could fill 204 balloons.
Some simple numbers on more sustainable travel options: Suppose we find a flight from London to Lisbon that emits 10% less CO2 than other flights: we would save 60 kg of CO2 per passenger (round trip), which is about 30,000 liters, or an amount of greenhouse gas emissions that could fill about 12,250 balloons.
And for a flight from London to New York, it would be even 10 times more….
BookSmart24 often offers travel options that save 30% or more in emissions.
Our algorithms process numerous parameters on the greenhouse gas emissions of the aircraft and route used and compare them with those of other available travel options. SmartChoice prioritizes the travel route with the lowest CO2 impact while ensuring that prices and travel duration remain within an average value that can be expected for the route in question.
It’s easy (and smart) to make a sustainable booking decision.
You enter the departure and destination locations, start the search and receive the SmartChoice in real time, i.e. the most sustainable travel route – worldwide. Below that, you’ll find the cheapest travel option, followed by the fastest travel option. This gives you full transparency and allows you to directly compare the prices of the cheapest and the most sustainable option – and you will be surprised: Often the price difference is minor.
So more sustainability doesn’t necessarily have to be more expensive.
