Flight free travel company Byway partners with DMO Go North Wales to bring the slow travel trend to North Wales.
LONDON, August 2021– Getting to the UK’s top outdoor adventure spots used to mean cars, motorway queues and lots of carbon emissions, but slow travel company Byway is fixing that by partnering with Go North Wales to make public transport easier to navigate.
North Wales rivals New Zealand or South America for outdoor activities, so while travel advisory changes daily, it’s the perfect time to discover what more remote parts of the UK have to offer, with activities you’d expect to see on gap years abroad. Now, thanks to new slow travel itinerary tech at Byway, all of that is easily reachable without a car.
Byway offers hyper-personalised holidays that take travellers away from the crowds by train, bus and boat, built in just a few clicks. It is the world’s first platform for flight-free holidays and aims to mainstream the emerging trend of slow travel by making it easy to visit lesser known locations without needing a car.
“Slow travel is not just about avoiding flying, it’s about the joyful experience of travelling through, rather than flying over, connecting with the region and supporting local businesses on the way. By working with destination marketing organisations like Go North Wales, we are able to build a sustainable leisure travel network, making it easier for holidaymakers to explore the vibrant travel ecosystem away from tourism hotspots. This is just one of many future partnerships with DMOs we are planning as we expand our tech into new regions, continuously and ethically.” Cat Jones, founder and CEO of Byway.
“We have a vibrant jump-on, jump-off bus network that gives travellers access to some of the most remote parts of North Wales, but this can be daunting for people unfamiliar with the area. Byway’s tech makes it easy for anyone to enjoy our beautiful region without adding cars to the roads. Plus, tourists tend to fly into major UK hubs like London or Edinburgh, so we miss out on a lot of that tourism industry. Dispersing the income from tourism to more rural areas will really help local economies.” Jim Jones, CEO, Go North Wales
Byway holiday packages start from £198 per person for three nights based on two people sharing, including travel and accommodation. To book, visit the website.
