What is a Package Holiday?

The term 'Package Holiday' was first coined in the middle of the last century and is generally used to describe holidays where all the arrangements for booking and providing the travel, accommodation and any other associated elements of a holiday are made for the client by a company, known generally as the 'Tour Operator'. A Package holiday is ideal for those who are not familiar with making travel arrangements to or in their chosen destination or do not have the necessary experience, expertise or lingustics to do so.

Traditionally one of the major benefits of a Package Holiday is that because the package offered by the Tour Operator is pre-arranged and sold in bulk to large numbers of clients the price of this type of holiday has generally been cheaper than if someone booked all the arrangements privately or separately. With the advent of modern technology this has been changing as the internet enables suppliers of the travel services themselves and the public to deal with each other more easily and prices of flights and hotels sold directly to the public have come down.

Package Holidays remain a good way of taking holidays to destinations where language or terrain may make individual travel difficult or where specialist arrangements are made for holidaymakers such as provision of expert guides, special trains etc.

Another benefit of Package holidays is that those sold in EU member states are regulated by the Package Travel Regulations 1992 which can be viewed in full here. These ensure that specified levels of consumer protection must be provided to anyone booking a package holiday including the re-imbursement of monies paid by the consumer if a supplier goes into liquidation.
