Package HolidaysFirst off there are two types of package holidays.1. The Package Holiday2. The all inclusive PackageLets start with number one The Package Holiday, this can be divided into two types number one is self-catering, what this normal means is you pick your destination then book your flight and accommodation through a travel agent, the rest of your holiday is left up to you to arrange such as meals, entertainment and in some cases transfers from the airport to your accommodation.The big plus with this category of holiday is you have complete freedom to do absolutely what you want when you want, you are not tied down to a timetable and are free to pick and choose when and where you want to have your meals and what entertainment you want to see. If you have chosen accommodation with a swimming pool than if it’s a nice warm evening and you fancy a dip at midnight too cool off then you will be free to do so.
This type of holiday will basically cover for any kind of budget, and can work out excellent value for money, for example if you are booking accommodation that sleeps four and the price is £200 per week and you book this with another couple than you either have a weeks holiday for £100 or two weeks for £200.This category of holiday is one of the most common across the holiday market, from couples with young babies, family groups large and small to the more mature couples who just want to please themselves.The alternative type of The Package Holiday includes flight, accommodation, meals and transfer’s to your holiday accommodation and free entertainment the complete package. This category of holiday is popular with people that have children up to the age of 14 (once children reach 14 they will not want to be put into Corkys holiday club)trust me on this one. The big plus with this holiday especially with couples with young children is that the adults get to have some time by themselves as the hotel’s that run these type of holiday’s usually put on day and night entertainment for the kid’s as well as entertainment for adult’s at night, some even have baby sitting services.This category of holiday has an enormous market and the selection of companies offering this holiday is massive and you must do your home work before booking, remember once you reach your accommodation you will spend most if not all of your time in the hotel’s complex get it wrong and your in trouble.My advice is try to talk to someone who has been where your thinking of booking or go on the internet and search on the travel forums remember this is not only your hard earned money you will be spending but two weeks you wish to be relaxing with your family not having to complain and moan about your holiday, and come home more stressed then when you went.
The all inclusive PackageThis package is as above but normally includes drinks, ice- creams, and snacks. The two facts you want to do here is look at the small print, for instant’s drinks might just mean soft drinks, alcohol drinks might just include what is termed local drinks and some put in times at which the drinks are served so once again do your home work.
The additional thing is compare the cost between a normal package holiday and an all inclusive is the additional cost really worth it, will the drinks, ice-cream and snack’s make the extra cost viable.I hope you have found the above helpful happy holidays.
