Air Tax rise gives even more incentive to try overland travel

On Monday, air taxes are to rise by up to 55%, potentially adding over one hundred pounds to the cost of a trip. The rises, detailed here, are being contested by the airline industry.

The good news is, that there is a good alternative to combat these taxes; try travelling overland. International rail travel isn't affected in the same way by this tax increase, meaning that some trips could become cheaper than alternative flights.

So if you were planning on taking a trip by plane, search Grounded Travel for a flightless alternative. You never know - you may catch the overland travel bug!
