Advantages of package tours over self planned toursBY: Deena David | Category: Travel | Post Date: 2009-08-09
Tourism is a multi billion-dollar industry. Many countries are fully dependent on tourism for their existence. People are also keener on traveling and taking a break from their work. They like to travel more and visit new places. Every person wants to take a holiday at least once a year and break away from the work. Many corporates also give their employees paid holidays. This has led to an increase in the number of places being developed for the sake of tourism.
Package tours are those that are arranged by registered companies that plan and arrange a trip for the individual who wants to travel or take a holiday. There are many advantages of these package tours over self-planned tours. These advantages are listed below.
1. No planning: The package tour is ideal for a person who is very busy at work and has little time to plan for the trip and make reservations in various flights or hotels. The package tour operator plans the trip and does all the necessary reservations. This saves a lot of time for the individual taking the holiday. It is also very good for the people who are unable to plan the trips due to various reasons other than lack of time.
2. Assured reservations: It is easier for the package tour operator to get reservations in various hotels than it is for the individual to be able to get reservations. This is mainly because these package tour operators know where and when to reserve. They also have many more contacts than the individual. So it is easier for these people to have reservations in hotels and in various flights. This is also one of the most important advantages of the package tour over the individual visiting many places.
3. Comfort assured: With the reservations in flights and hotels being done by the package tour operator, there are no last minute hassles for the tourists. Everything works according to schedule. There is no undue delay in any way. This is because the package tour operators are more experienced and organized in all these aspects. The more organized they are, the more business they get. So they take very good care of their clients.
4. More travel for less: The package tour operators have a complete package that caters to different people. There may be domestic tour package or international tour package. The individual selects the type of tour, and there are many places that can be seen based on the package selected.
5. Comprehensive package: Adequate time is spent in each location and all the places that need to be seen are visited. No place is missed. If a family or individual goes on a tour, finding the important places to visit may take a lot of time. In a package tour, all the sites that need to be visited are pre selected and all the details arranged. This makes the package tour simpler.
These are the major advantages of a package tour over a self-planned tour. Many people are resorting to arranging a package tour for their families instead of planning the tour themselves.
