The private car is the most commonly used means of transport by Luxembourgers during their travels. Indeed, today, the private car is used in one trip out of two (52%), the plane in 37% of trips, and trains and buses only in 10%.
To fully enjoy the summer holidays it is necessary to organize the trip at the right time. No matter if you plan a journey by car or plane, there are always many things to think about before departure.
In preparation for the summer holidays, we interviewed Cédric Haas, Communication and Marketing Manager of the Automobile Club du Luxembourg – ACL.
Cédric, can you tell us about the ACL and the travel services offered?
Created in 1932, ACL is one of the biggest associations in Luxembourg with over 180.000 members. You can enjoy many services including advantages and discounts with our EXCLUSIVE PARTNERS in Luxembourg and Europe!
