This is the sixth in a series of reports to be produced by the Transport Visions Network. The Network is a novel venture to project the views of young professionals into the debate concerning the future of transport and its role in society. It is comprised of individuals who are aged 35 or under from universities, consultancies and public authorities both in the UK and overseas.

This report presents the Network's views on the future of long distance travel. It begins by considering the current and projected future context for long distance travel. It discusses present policy approaches before introducing the Network's own ideas and solutions which are presented under four headings: 1. Domestic Business Travel; 2. Domestic Leisure Travel; 3. International Business Travel; and 4. International Leisure Travel. Each section concludes with a vision for the future of long distance travel based on the integration of ideas and solutions developed in the section. The visions are presented in the form of a series of personal accounts from individuals in the future.
