Online Travel Services Offer Carbon Offsets with Trip Purchase (updated)

Read the full post at Green Car Congress.

Online travel services Travelocity and Expedia both have begun allowing customers to purchase carbon offsets when they buy travel. Airline travel currently accounts for about 13% of U.S.-transportation-based emissions of carbon dioxide.

Travelocity is working in conjunction with the Go Zero program of The Conservation Fund, and offers carbon offsets to anyone buying a vacation package (flight + hotel + rental car). Expedia is working with TerraPass (earlier post) and offers the offsets to anyone purchase a plane ticket.
