Oh hello, and welcome back.
Coming up on Europe'sepic lower CO₂ emission challenge.
Team Alpha come upagainst cattle congestion.
Mooove! While Omega get under the skinof Budapest.
-Where are we?-I don't know.
And two unexpected hitchhikerscrash the party on the road to Istanbul.
This is The Great Travel Hack.
-Hello!-Hi! Welcome to the mountains.
-Nice of you to join us.
-Yes, finally! I fancied an Alpine trip.
That's why I'm out of Mission Control.
They send their best.
They can't be here.
They don't like natural light.
OK, simmer down, because hilarious as I am, this is a very serious moment.
You have one week to get to Istanbul, the gateway to Asia, and you've got to do itin the cleanest way possible.
So for the final time, roulette wheels out, please.
-Give it a lucky spin, please.
-Give them a spin! -What have you got?-We got Two! -That's the Range!-You don't know what it is yet.
You can see it.
-We got Four!-Four! -To your vehicles.
-Here we go.
Three, two, one.
This is so cool.
OK, yes, you all look very coolin your cars, but you've got to actually get in them.
So follow your pins, good luck, be safe, and I will see you in Istanbul.
-Miss you already! I've got to get back to Mission Control.
Which I think is that way.
There isn't many better carsto take these roads on than a Porsche.
-Are you enjoying it?-Loving it.
The scenery, the drive, everything.
We're up in the mountains again, Jamie.
I am in love with it.
It is like driving in a holiday.
I just got in.
This is the sun, the beachand the mountains, all in one.
That's how beautiful this car is.
We’re driving, totally hybrid.
-When you brake, it's charging itself.
I love that.
To have this luxury, as well as beinga hybrid and a cleaner car.
Bonus, innit? And you know, it's not slow either.
There seems to beno other cars on the road.
Well, that is an issue.
Look at the cows.
'Scuse me, mister cow! Mooove! Can we get past, please? -I got a message.
-Go for it.
From Mission Control.
“Welcome to Hungary.
Can you repeat that? I blanked out for a second there.
-Country number seven?-Seven.
No boosts have been wonby Team Alpha.
That's got to change in Hungary.
I think they feel a bit defeated, now.
-Yeah, but still.
We have to be focused.
-No more losing.
-Oh, I got a message.
It's a video.
Hello, Travel Hackers.
I'm sorry to interruptyour lower-CO₂ road trip of a lifetime, but it's time for a challenge.
I want you to show us somethingthat's never been seen before.
Film an epic 360-degree video of something or somewherealong your route, but be original, be unexpected.
or be defeated.
-Nice challenge, actually.
-OK! That's a cool challenge.
A general tour of the city is too obvious.
Maybe just something extremely original.
What's cool in Hungary? They've got loads of landmarks.
We can go on the Danube.
-But it has been done before.
What looks good if you go inside? What about things like an art gallery, or.
Can we go under the Danube? -Or am I too enthusiastic?-No, maybe.
We all know how we sortthese problems out, Sammy.
We give Mission Control a call.
Jamie and I were thinking about maybegoing underground if that's a possibility.
Now you're talking.
That's our kind of challenge.
We're on it.
-Thank you!-Thank you! Mission Control, we are lookingfor a cool, epic, and unique building, and we also need a very cool, clever, lower CO₂ emissionselectric vehicle, please.
A vehicle you can drive inside a building? Interesting.
Let's see what we can find.
-Thanks, Mission Control.
-Bye! We'll get back to you soon.
-From? Mission Control.
“We discovered some tunnelsbeneath Budapest and we've found the perfect EV for them, head to this location.
” -I think we're on the right track.
-We could be on the right track.
-Look at that little thing!-There we go! -Look at what.
-There we go! This is amazing.
Wow! Futuristic little car.
-It's so tiny.
-Isn't it? This is interesting.
It looks very exciting.
A suitcase that's a bike!What's next, an oven that's a surfboard? If inside is anything like the outside, we're on to a winner! We're on to a winner! This is impressive.
Sam, I don't want to give you a big head, but I think this is probablyyour best idea yet.
Right, you get on with the technology'cos I haven't got a clue.
-I'm going to get comfy.
You sure about this? -I hope.
-Go for it.
Get in there, go.
If this 360 of the museumdoesn't win us a boost, I don't know what will.
No messing about, this time.
We’re going to win it.
This is a cool place for a 360.
I love it.
Very highbrow, eh? See the water coming from the ceiling? -Are you kidding me?-I told you! Who would think of goinginto a black tunnel for a 360? I feel like we're ruining the noise.
I'll tell you what's going to happen.
We are winning that boost.
-OK, I think we got it now.
-Yeah, we did.
-OK, upload it, guys.
-Let's upload this video.
Yes, Sammy! Tour complete.
-Right, shall we upload?-Yeah, let's upload it.
That was quick.
“Get back on the road and Greg will review your videosand tell you who has won.
” -We did it, Jamie!-We definitely did it.
I feel confident.
Sammy, I'm feeling goodabout this challenge.
-Are you?-We might have done it.
I know we're doing thisto give people more awareness in how to travel cleaner, more efficiently, but we're also doing this to win.
-I got a message.
-Give us a “W” please.
I watched your 360 videosand, wow, they're both really cool.
” “Team Omega, your 360 was a great idea.
” Here's the “W”.
” “I think you need to be there in personto enjoy the uniqueness of the tunnels.
Team Alpha, you just clinched it.
” -Yes! Finally!-Finally! Doesn't matter what he thinks, he judged it and it wasn't good enough.
I don't like him as a judge.
I want a second opinion.
“This time, you're going to receivean emotional boost to keep you going on your long journey.
” An emotional boost? -Oh, sweet Lord.
-Oh, my God! -Hey, bubbers!-Hi, puppies! We've won the entire competitionwith this.
Let's just let them go to Istanbul.
We can stay here.
-Come on!-Quickly! Let's do a Boomerangand send it to Team Omega.
-Oh, my God!-What? It's Team Alpha.
They're cuddling puppies.
-Puppies?-Their boost is petting puppies.
Go to the hotel.
Maybe they're still there.
We can cuddle them as well.
I love to cuddle puppies, to pet them.
Puppies are good for everyone.
What a lovely day, my friend.
-Feeling good? -I don't know.
-I got a message.
“It's test-your-knowledge time.
We want to seehow much you have learned, so get readyfor an unexpected hitchhiker.
The team withthe most correct answers wins.
” -Who is it?-Who's our hitchhiker? Who is joining us? Good morning, guys! Perry! Oh, my God.
Manon! How are you? So nice to see you.
-I haven't been away from you.
-Is it emotional?-It is emotional.
I feel like I've lost my right arm.
If you're wondering what that dinging is, I think you've left the boot open.
Why are you our hitchhiker? I've got to ask you some questions.
-Bring it on.
Let's do this.
Question number one: What are the CO₂ emissionsof an electric vehicle? -Zero.
What are the emissionsin a hydrogen vehicle? -Water.
Question number two: Approximately how many castlesare there in Germany? 20, 000.
-20, 000-We'll go with 20, 000.
OK, this one is more difficult.
Where do tulips come from? Not the Netherlands.
-I say Turkey.
-Turkey? -I say Austria.
-You don't know it.
Turkey! Turkey! Next question.
How many types of breadare baked in Germany? -Over 300?-Over 300.
Where was the first everpostcard souvenir sent from? -Austria?-Austria? -Austria.
What is a hybrid vehicle? It's a vehicle that runs electricbut also runs on petrol.
What does P.
stand for? Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle? Those were the questions.
Thanks for having me.
Good luck, and go Team Omega! Thank you, love.
All right, guys, I hope you absolutely smash it.
Of course, Team Alpha all the way.
Peace out, Jordan.
-See you!-Peace! Oh, my God, that was amazing, Jamie.
I want to cry now.
It's given us that extra boost, hopefully.
-Come on, Team Alpha!-To get the win! Come on! We have a text message.
“Bine ati venit in Romania!” -Romania!-Romania! We did it.
I think we're still aheadin the competition, right? -Kind of.
We're still up.
-We're a good team.
Beauty and the brains.
So I'm both, right? Yeah, I'm just the driver.
You're just the driver! I'm taken abackthat we're having this opportunity to come to some countries that youwould never even think of visiting.
-This has been wicked.
-Because you're driving a Porsche! Now we're in Romania, have you noticedthere is less service stations? And even more so, like, electricity points? And hydrogen points.
It's a good idea we've got a hybrid.
So where are we off to now, then, Sammy? I'm not sure which way to gobecause the signal keeps dropping.
Oh, Jamie, I lost reception.
-Of all places.
-My pin is not working any more.
We can't be the only ones.
-Are you talking about Team Omega?-Yeah.
Can I ask you something? To Brasov, is it that way? Yeah? -That way? Thank you so much.
Enjoy your day.
We're either going the right wayor the wrong way.
Worst case, we get Romanian snacksand it's a long drive back! We are in the middle of nowhere.
In the middle of.
Sir? -Thank you so much.
Maybe we're going to see some snow.
That would be nice.
-What's this? What just happened here? Oh.
It's a roadblock.
Oh, no! What are they going to do? I feel a binge-watch coming on.
