Travel Agency or Tour Operator?

When it comes to booking your next holiday will you be heading down to your local Travel agency or booking via a Tour Operator?

Well they both book holidays so you might think the difference between these two entities is irrelevant, but if you are looking for a unique travel experience to a destination that you have never visited before, then you might want to reconsider.

Travel Agencies generally sell package tours that they have put together themselves or purchased from a Tour Operator to sell as a complete holiday. Convenient and sometimes cheaper than the alternatives, packaged holidays can be great, but they do have certain limitations and you might be in for a long old bus ride from the airport to your hotel if you are sharing a coach with the Travel Agencies other passengers.

Tour Operators on the other hand are able to create bespoke holidays that cater for your every need.  With multiple-destination holidays and a range of hotel categories to choose from, you are in charge of your holiday with a Tour Operator, and you can therefore tailor make it to meet your exact requirements.

Take our honeymoon trip for example, put together at the request of wonderful young couple from Ireland, it combines a 9 night stay in South Africa visiting the highlights of Cape Town, the Garden Route and a Malaria free Safari in the Eastern Cape, with 5 nights relaxation in neighbouring Mauritius.

A honeymoon holiday that dreams are made of, this stunning trip was tailor-made to suit the travellers, and as a result, they had the time of their lives!

Holidays create precious memories that we get to enjoy for many years after the trip is over, so why not build your perfect holiday the help of a Tour Operator and treat yourself to a holiday of a lifetime.
