Choosing the Right Tour for You

We are conscious that customers are faced with a bewildering number of suppliers and huge quantity of individual tours to choose from. Superficially, some seem almost identical, yet prices can vary considerably. So which tour and supplier is right for you?

    • As ever, start with location, or in this case the geographical area you wish to visit
    • Then identify a selection of suitable tours with the right itinerary

You should then have a selection of potentially very differently priced tours, so why is there such a difference in price? These are some of the things that cause that important price to vary so much on these seemingly similar tours:

    • Does the tour include a free pick-up from home to departure point?
    • Are there excursions included in the price?
    • Does the coach have fewer seats, allowing for more legroom, deeper reclining?
    • What standard are the hotels? What’s the meal basis? (full/half board, B&B)
    • Where are the hotels located? (More expensive tours generally have superior and centrally located hotels)

In summary you may find that when all things are considered, the price difference is not quite so great as it appears with these things factored in. Our Travel Specialists are here to help with exactly this type of query. They are fully trained by our suppliers, enabling them to help guide you to choose the right trip.
