I might be showing my age here… but it seems only five minutes ago that our annual holiday consisted of a trip to the local high street travel agents, where we would spend hours examining the well-fingered brochures in search of our dream holiday in the sun.
Thankfully, the way we plan and book our holidays has improved dramatically over the past 10 years, and thanks to the wonderful invention of the World Wide Web, we are now able to sit at home and surf the internet for holidays destination ideas, hotel reviews, and flight price comparisons, before having our online tour operator wrap up all our ideas into a tailor-made travel package.
Tailor made travel is arguably one of the world’s fastest growing travel trends, and any reputable online tour operator or travel agent with an ATOL licence (issued by the Civil Aviation Authority), can help you dynamically package the holiday of your dreams.
The benefits of a tailor-made holiday are almost endless; you can include multi-destination flight tickets, as many stopovers as you need, a variety of different hotel accommodations, car hire, escorted tours, and just about any other travel related aspect you can think of. Best of all, with a tailor-made holiday you can make the most out of your travel budget and holiday time, and see and do only those things you really want to.
Multi-destination flights are now standard with any online tour operator, and as a result, stopovers and multi-destination holidays are easy to arrange and much cheaper than in previous years. An example would be our upcoming South Pacific Cruise in October. We fly from London to Hawaii, and then from Sydney to London, and all for the same price as a standard return ticket would cost to either of these destinations.
Tailor made travel puts you in charge, and no matter how complicated or difficult your itinerary may seem, with a little bit of help from the professionals, you could soon be heading on the holiday of YOUR dreams (and not the travel agents)!
