The internet has made arranging our holidays a far easier prospect. We can now see photographs of where we want to stay and book our flights directly with the carrier. This might sound like a wonderful idea and it may be that the package or group travel tour is a thing of the past, but hold on a minute because they still have life in them yet.
1.It seems that we all believe that the further we travel the better our holiday will be. However, sometimes the best trips are not actually that far from our homes. You don’t need to fly to go on holiday and sometimes an organized coach trip can provide you with a wonderful experience in places that you might have wished you had discovered earlier.
2.Travelling alone can be a difficult and sometimes even scary experience. By travelling with an organized group travel tour you are far more likely to meet like-minded people and you might even form lasting friendships. Meal times and excursions are far easier to handle when you are in a crowd, so by booking a group travel tour you will not be left out.
3.When you book your travels on your own you have to organize every aspect of the tour separately. The flight, hotel and any transfers are all down to you along with many other factors. It is a realistic prospect that one of the factors may go horribly wrong. The flight might be delayed and the transfer may not wish to wait for you, or the hotel might be awful. With group travel (it’s interesting fact that the Danes use the term grupperejser) these things have been taken care of so there are fewer chances that problems will occur.
4.Many of the top tourist destinations around the world have a multitude of things to see and do. In fact it is often the case that you cannot fit everything into the time that is available to you. Choosing what to see and what to miss is a difficult prospect as everything always seems so good. With an organized group tour the best sights and experiences have already been researched so you can be sure that you will not miss any of the highlights.
5.When you visit sights on your travels it is sometimes difficult to know what you are actually seeing. Trying to organize a guide that speaks your language can be expensive and time consuming. By travelling as part of a group you will find that the tour company will already have qualified and well-spoken guides in place and as there are large numbers of you the cost is minimal.
6.It is widely believed that by booking a trip yourself and organizing all of the details that you will save money. Whilst in some cases this might be true in others it is not and in the long term group travel can be far cheaper. Budget airlines often use airports that are a long way from your final destination and, therefore, expensive on transfers and hotels offer large discounts for group booking which tour companies can pass on to their clients.
7.We must all agree that we simply do not get enough holiday time and our breaks never seem long enough. By booking with a group travel agency you are leaving all the organizing for them to arrange and saving yourself the hassle. This means that when you are on your vacation you have more time to enjoy it and you can get more from your time away.
