Pros and cons of pre-packaged holidays: Is it better to book or build my own?

Pros

  • Pre-packaged holidays are incredibly easy to find. Gone are the days of visiting a travel agent to book your holiday. Now, all it takes is a simple Internet search and you’ll have millions of travel deals at your fingertips.
  • Travel agents reap huge discounts from booking in bulk and these savings are usually passed on to you, the customer.
  • The majority of holiday packages can be booked with added extras such as car rentals and day trips, so you can create a personally tailored holiday package to suit you.

Cons

  • With everything arranged for you, from your transfers to your daily activities, pre-packaged holidays can start to feel a bit rushed as you move from A to B.
  • Packaged holidays can be very inflexible, which means it can be nigh on impossible to make any last-minute changes without incurring charges.
  • With many of the meals and activities based around your accommodation, you’ll have little opportunity to interact with locals or try the local delicacies when you’re on a packaged holiday.
