When you consider the carbon footprint of a typical UK family holiday in a Motorhome against that of a trip to Spain, it’s easy to see why a Motorhome holiday becomes attractive for minimising the impact your holiday may have on the environment. A return flight to Spain for a family of 5 will generate around 1.3 tonnes of CO2 emissions compared to 0.3 tonnes for a 1000 mile round trip in one of our Motorhomes.

At Open Road Scotland all our vehicles are equipped with Euro V and Euro VI compliant diesel engines to maximise fuel efficiency and minimise emissions. These meet all the latest EC regulations on energy efficiency and fuel emissions. In our vehicles we also supply eco-friendly cleaning products where possible and we encourage our customers to recycle all food and drinks packaging and bottles where possible. Many campsites also now offer recycling services which makes it easier for holidaymakers to do their bit for the environment while on holiday.
There are no hard and fast rules to follow on your Motorhome holiday but a few general things to bear in mind should be pointed out.
