CV Villas has teamed up with Byway, the first 100% flight-free travel platform, to provide conscious travellers with the option to book pre-built itineraries in Europe.

Travellers can visit destinations in Europe such as Sicily, Portugal, Tuscany, Puglia, Corfu, Amalfi Coast, Umbria, French Riviera and Morocco via train, ferry, and bus.

Customers can now combine scenic rail journeys with the perfect villa for their next holiday, skipping traffic jams, passport control line and discovering the joy of travelling through the rolling hills of European destinations.

Pete Brudenell, Managing Director, CV Villas, says: “We understand that travellers are now factoring in their carbon footprint when travelling on holiday and this new partnership with Byway allows us to offer a solution to conscious travellers.

“Travelling by train is one of the most environmentally friendly modes of transport and by choosing to travel by train, you are going a long way to reducing your carbon footprint.”

Paul Conroy, Head of Partnerships, Byway, says: “Our customers are often looking to book a villa as part of their trip, so we’re delighted that we are now able to point them straight to CV Villas.

“Not only is travelling across land much better for the planet, Byway’s multi-stop trips enrich any holiday, allowing travellers to experience more places and make the most of the journey itself.”

To book a holiday with CV Villas and Byway, travellers can book their chosen villa first by visiting the CV Villas website or contacting a Villa Specialist, before being introduced to Byway who will organise the flight-free journey, using trains, buses, and ferries.
