As peak holiday season draws to a close, slow travel company Byway has seen more customers than ever before looking to secure a flight-free break for the shoulder seasons.

Having seen such a busy travel season this summer, those seeking a quieter break are booking later in the year. Byway’s off-season trips cater to trips for couples, families, groups or solo travellers.

Those looking for a sustainable way to hit the slopes might opt for a flight-free ski trip, while Sicily has sun-seekers chasing the last of the summer rays.

Byway offers customisable holidays that take holidaymakers away from the crowds by train, bus, bike and boat. As the world’s first flight-free holiday platform, Byway is making it easier than ever to explore the UK and Europe sustainably, with hassle-free holidays. Its mission is to bring slow travel into the mainstream.
