Online Holiday Packages are a collection of travel services that are bundled together into one product and sold by a tour operator. Often these holidays are pre-arranged, but bespoke packages may be available on request – allowing travellers to select their own flights, accommodation and activities. Some examples of online Holiday Packages are bed and breakfast and half board trips, or a multi-centre tour that includes a number of excursions and sightseeing opportunities.
These online Holiday Packages are often a more convenient and cost-effective way of booking a trip abroad as all the essential elements are arranged for you. The main advantages are that they offer you a price guarantee and the peace of mind in knowing everything is booked through one travel company who will be responsible for ensuring that all aspects of your trip run smoothly.
In addition, if something unforeseen happens that is outside the control of the organiser, for example an adverse weather situation or a serious security problem at your destination, you will be protected by EU rules covering package travel and linked travel arrangements (LTAs). These include pre-contractual information, liability for the proper performance of the included travel services and, where transport is included in your package, repatriation in case of necessary emergency situations.
There are a wide range of online Holiday Packages to choose from, many of which are ABTA Members and offer great value for money. If you are unsure of what is right for you, we recommend talking to a travel expert as they will be able to provide you with an array of options.
