Booking a Holiday with a Travel Agent


Posted by Bethany | Posted in Holidays | Posted on 26-09-2018

In the age of the internet, fewer people are choosing to book holidays with travel agents. This is usually to do with money, as people can book their own flights and accommodation and make their holiday cheaper. If you want quality, ease of experience and a holiday that is tailored to you, then working with a travel agent is still a great idea.

There are many travel agents who represent one specific brand, so choose them if you enjoy holidays from one particular travel company. Others look at all the deals available and will give you a good overview of all the holidays you can select.

If you need some inspiration, look on the travel agent’s website and read some travel blogs. This will give you a good idea of the kinds of destinations you can visit, as well as the types of accommodation you might like to stay in.

Swimming in the sun sounds like the ideal holiday for lots of people, right? If you are one of those people, then there are plenty of opportunities for you to book a beautiful hotel or villa that has a stunning swimming pool in many beautiful parts of the world – and ones that get good weather as well!

You should make sure you book in advance, as places like this will get booked up fast, especially if they offer you genuinely good value for money. It’s a good idea to book up to a year in advance, as you will then be able to secure the best deals for your holiday. If you choose a package, then you will get your flights included in the price, which can be a much cheaper way of purchasing a holiday. It also takes away the stress of waiting until you have booked flights to choose your accommodation.


Booking a Villa for your Holiday

A villa might sound like quite the luxurious accommodation choice. And it is, compared to many other choices, such as hotels with shared bathrooms or hostels with shared bedrooms. You might be surprised to know though, villa holidays can be more affordable than you think.

Of course, it will all depend on the holiday itself and the options you select for it. If you choose a more luxurious villa, it will inevitably be more expensive. By booking in advance and considering booking a package, you can often get some good deals and much lower prices.

Villas tend to be bigger, so it’s the perfect opportunity to share with friends and family. Invite some people along and enjoy your trip together, sunbathing and relaxing by the swimming pool. Many villas will come with BBQs and good outdoor areas – you will barely need to leave to go out anywhere else during your holiday!

Travelling abroad is all the more fun if you don’t have to drag lots of luggage around with you. If you can, it’s much better to pack light for your trip. This doesn’t always come naturally to people though, and you might need to put some thought into the items that are essential and those that you can do without. Here are some top tips:

  • Do washing while you are away. This means you can take fewer clothes with you.
  • Take smaller bottles. Decant your liquids into small bottles that will be lighter and won’t take up as much room.
  • Wear your heaviest shoes on the plane. If you take shoes like trainers or walking boots, wear them to save space.
  • Roll your clothes. This stops them creasing but takes up less space in your suitcase.
  • Be ruthless. A lot of what you might like to take really isn’t essential. Don’t take it – you will be fine without it.
