People talk about “package holidays” when jetting off on-holiday to popular places like Spain and Greece December Global Holidays. But what actually makes up a package holiday? We’ll discuss the various components which make up the package.

When you go on holiday to a holiday resort overseas, it’s not just the holiday accommodation you have to pay for, other elements are included in the price you pay. One of the most expensive elements is the flight to your destination. When flying “short hall” (ie. Somewhere within about 5 hours of flying time) you are likely to have a “chartered flight”. A chartered flight means your holiday company wither own, or have hired the plane, so all the occupants are likely to be holiday-makers like you.

The next piece of the holiday jigsaw is the “transfer”. Once you have flown into your destination, you need to get to the holiday accommodation. This is the “transfer”. With a package holiday the transfer will be included as part of the holiday; and will be either a taxi, or more likely, a bus, which will drop off various holiday parties at there destination. The transfer will also pick you up at the end of your holiday, and drop you off back at the airport.

You will also get a “rep” (representative) of your holiday company. You may never need to contact the rep, but it’s handy to know that there is someone you can call if you have any problems.

Lastly, you get the accommodation where you will staying for your holiday. With a package holiday you get piece of mind that everything is sorted out for you, so you can concentrate on the important business of enjoying yourself.

When deciding whether you should book a package holiday, or find and book the accommodation separately, make sure you include all parts of the holiday into the price. You might well find the accommodation works out cheaper if purchased separately, but make sure you know the price of the flights, and transfer too.
