Guest Post: Perfect Package Getaways
Whatever type of holiday you're looking for, whether it's a romantic honeymoon, a budget beach break or an action-packed holiday on the pistes, the chances are you can get there with a package holiday. And if you're wondering why package holidays are so good, let us explain. For starters, it really does take the pressure off. Where most packages are concerned - for instance, when you book package holidays with Thomas Cook - you'll find that all of your travel essentials are included in the booking, which means you don't have to run around booking flights, hotels, trains or buses. With standard package breaks, your return flights and nightly accommodation is all included in the booking, along with a return resort transfer. That's the journey in-between your destination airport and the hotel, and is not to be underestimated! When you're laden with suitcases, holiday paraphernalia and children, the last thing you want to do is figure out the local public transport network or haggle for taxis in a foreign language. With a package break, that's all taken care of - and there's usually a cheerful representative to point you in the right direction too. On the subject of representatives, with large-scale tour operators there's usually a locally based representative who is on-hand to offer help and support throughout your stay. This is a vital resource, as they can help with anything from lost passports and hotel queries to day excursions and finding the best local seafood restaurant. What's more, with package tour operators there's a fantastic array of choice. Back to Thomas Cook, and you'll find a superb spectrum of holiday experiences from short breaks in Spain or Italy, to luxury cruises in the Caribbean. Whether you book all inclusive Thomas Cook holidays or opt for a simple, straightforward self-catering getaway, there's something to suit holidaymakers from all walks of life. It's just a matter of finding your favourite.
