A magnificent combination of historic sites, seaside resorts and unmistakable scenery makes Turkey a must-visit destination for more and more tourists each year. Fortuitously located at the juncture of Asia, Europe and the Middle East, and bordered by the Mediterranean, Aegean and Black seas, Turkey boasts a dynamic mix of cultural influences and unique range of natural landscapes, both in great need of protection.
In keeping with that, Unlimited Holidays, a young tour operator based in Kalkan, in the southern Mediterranean region of Turkey, has signed on as a local partner of the Green Path Transfers global network of local eco-friendly airport transfer partners and ground transportation operators. This business decision has placed Unlimited Holidays at the forefront of efforts to commit to greener, more environmentally responsible transport options.
Just one area of activity amongst many others, the transfer services operated by Unlimited Holidays run between the Dalaman and Antalya airports and destinations in Kalkan, Kaş and Fethiye.
Preserving Environmental Resources
For Unlimited Holidays, which launched its operations in 2010, the partnership with Green Path Transfers builds on a commitment to preserve the natural environment and the communities in which it operates.
Since his start more than a decade ago as a professional tour guide in Antalya, Kalkan and Kaş, Mehmet Yildiz, founder and manager of Unlimited Holidays, has always been thinking about responsible travel initiatives in Turkey. According to Yildiz, his interests and the company’s participation in the green transfers industry stem from his commitment to preserving his country’s environment in a balanced fashion that takes into account the economic gains from tourism.
“Every small and big company has to take care of the environment,” he said. “We have studied this business and l am earning my living in this business, but if it’s so developed and so polluted, who will come to this kind of country in future? I want to attract more people who care for nature and the locals around. It’s not only for us, it’s for the animals, trees, etc. That’s why we are a partner in Green Path Transfers.”
In its turn, “Green Path Transfers looks forward to our future success in Turkey through our partnership with Unlimited Holidays,” commented Adrian Cordiner, the company’s CEO.
Delivering Sustainable Solutions
As an official Green Path Transfers partner, Unlimited Holidays has vowed to reduce its carbon emissions (http://www.greenpathtransfers.com/goinggreen). The company’s current vehicle fleet consists of three-passenger diesel-powered cars and 14-passenger vans run on ‘euro-diesel’ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultra-low-sulfur_diesel), a type of low-sulphur fuel that produces lower emissions than regular diesel fuel.
Further to this, the company intends to switch from diesel fuels to low-emission liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) for its vehicles. Later on, the company even intends to build an entire fleet of low- and zero-emission cars. “I can promise to use the lowest carbon emissions vehicles for the cars l’ll buy in the future,” Yildiz said.At the moment, one of the main constraints to going green is the high taxes associated with hybrid vehicles in Turkey. Yildiz is nevertheless confident that with the new government’s stated intention to support hybrid-vehicle use, things will change. “They’ll reduce taxes on hybrid cars,” he said, “but l think it will take at least five more years for companies to start using zero-carbon emissions vehicles.”
Unlimited Holidays’ deep respect for the local environment is reflected in more than just the company’s stance on green transport. Yildiz and his team also use non-toxic, chemical-free cleaning agents and commute to work on mopeds or electrical bicycles.
Exploring Local Sights
In addition to airport transfers, Unlimited Holidays provides travellers with a range of services, including guided sightseeing, adventure and luxury tours; hotel and villa reservations; and car hires. The regional focus is Kalkan, Kaş and Fethiye, including attractions like the sunken city of Kekova, Fethiye Market and even a lazy but luxurious day at sea via private yacht.
For ecotourists and travellers in search of their next adventure, Yildiz has a list of must-see sights in Turkey. Among his top picks are Kalkan, listed as one of the most romantic European escapes by the British newspaper The Independent; Kaş, a diving resort and site of the oldest known shipwreck in the world (http://www.thetravelword.com/2010/02/26/kas-turkey-the-best-scuba-diving-in-the-mediterranean/); Patara Beach, a long, beautiful beach and a protected habitat for the Caretta turtles who lay their eggs there; and last but not least, the Taurus Mountains, home to the tallest natural-grown cedar forests in the world.

Discount travel insurance provides benefits to people traveling in Australia and around the world because it offers a cost reduction while still providing insurance on what counts most for people traveling.
The benefits to using travel insurance are very important when planning a holiday; policies provide a range of cover from insurance on traveler checks, foreign currency, medical expenses and accommodation to the standard lost luggage. Discount travel insurance policies allow people traveling to have a worry free time holidaying in countries all over the world and domestically in Australia. The benefits of discount travel insurance differ to full priced insurance but if policies are understood and cover everything someone thinks they will need then the price discount outweighs the extra benefits that may be available under full travel insurance.
Discount travel insurance is suitable for people going on a budget holiday as it meets the cost requirements of a cheap holiday. The key to discount travel insurance is to understand what the policy covers and what the policy does not cover. Once this is clearly understood people can make the best decision on low cost travel insurance making sure they are covered for what they believe they will most likely need the insurance for. When holidays are planned well you can also receive travel insurance discounts by bundling travel insurance with many other aspects of the trip plan. Discount travel insurance is also suitable when traveling in developed first world countries and when not undertaking potentially dangerous activities. If you are not undertaking a risky adventure you will be unlikely to need the extended benefits of full travel insurance cover – rather basic cover should be adequate for you.
Discount travel insurance can also be tailored for adventurous holidays if required: for example if skiing overseas it would be smarter to have high hospital cover just in case an accident was to happen. By sacrificing something like theft insurance for a higher level of medical cover you can counter the cost and avoid higher premiums. Discount travel insurance can also be beneficial for cheap short single trip holidays like weekend interstate holidays or travelling to other countries which are not far away, the discount will reflect the length of a holiday and the accessibility to Australia from the country in which you are traveling. If you are traveling for example in Fiji and your origin is Australia and you fall sick, it is a less expensive exercise for the insurance company to return you to Australia quickly and thereby avoid large medical bills overseas. The travel insurance company can then reflect this saving back to the insurance holder in a lower premium. The primary benefit with discount travel insurance is to provide low cost insurance while still covering a traveler’s primary needs. This said, as noted previously, one can always tailor a discount travel insurance to cover additional anticipated risks particularly if traveling in dangerous areas or undertaking high risk activities such as skiing. Get online and enjoy the savings on premiums with discount travel insurance.
