Extracts from this document...


M1/ Unit 9 Holiday Planning Considering Length when traveling by Train, Car or Plane during When it comes to the duration of your trip, air travel can be the most efficient. Then again, this depends on where you are going. It is much easier to travel by car if your destination is a nearby state. Trains may be the slowest duration of them all. However, cars have stop lights and other rules to follow on the road. But, trains do not have these restrictions, which make it a better choice in many circumstances. When traveling by car, you have to abide by speed limitations and deal with traffic jams. This can have a significant effect on the duration of your trip.

It is possible to tilt a seat back and rest your head but then you will have to worry about falling over onto another passenger once you fall asleep. That can be awkward situation. Trains have larger seats and are structured so that it is possible to rest while traveling. When it comes to traveling by car, you will only be able to sleep if someone else is willing to drive for a portion of the trip. Another alternative would be to park your car at a rest stop to take a short break. When it comes to comfort, trains make the top of this list. Cars come in next while airplanes are last.
