What is a package holiday?
Not everybody realises that package holidays don’t have to be cut and paste breaks to sunny resorts. They can actually be anything you want them to be!
To qualify as a package holiday, at least two elements (whether that’s travel, accommodation, excursions, or something else) have to be arranged by the same company.
A package holiday provides value to holidaymakers with protection through the Package Travel Regulations, as well as extra convenience and cost-effectiveness that you won’t find elsewhere.
To create the perfect package holiday, you can work with specialist travel providers that can put together a holiday for you – whether it does turn out to be a sunny getaway, skiing trip, city break, even travelling around the world!
Save your money, and protect what you do spend
Working with a travel company that can create your package holiday can lead to some discounts, due to the nature of the type of holiday. They will work closely with specific providers and because you’re booking multiple parts of your holiday through them, you might be able to reap the rewards more than if you were shopping around yourself.
In terms of protection, your finances are better protected with a package holiday. Because of the regulations involved in package holidays, as well as things like ATOL protection, you can feel safe and secure in the knowledge that you can focus on enjoying your time away.
Let someone else do the heavy lifting
Organising a holiday can be stressful – and sometimes that takes away from the whole point of resting, relaxing, and recuperating. When you book a package holiday, however, you might not need to worry about that. You simply need to let your provider know what you want to do and they’ll be able to sort the rest.
This makes planning a bit easier, and it also means you have fewer providers to deal with. That translates into less hassle if something goes wrong and you need to cancel, and you don’t have to keep up with countless confirmation emails. It’s the little things that matter.
More ways to protect your holiday
Package holidays do a great job of packaging things up and making it easier to focus on having a good time when you’re on holiday.
Something to help create that extra layer of peace of mind is travel insurance. A combination of travel insurance and a package holiday is a great way to inspire confidence when you’re ready to get back out there into the world.
