Why I Love Direct Holidays For My Regular Vacation.


Sometimes travel agents make booking your own holiday sound harder than it really is.

Thats because they have a vested interest in keeping people coming to them.

They want to keep their profits up.

Lots of people are quite happy with the service they get from their travel agents and wouldn?t have it any other way.They don’t want the work involved planning and booking vacations.

But not everyone wants to book a standard package holiday.

And I?m one of them.

I?ve found that the Internet has revolutionized how I plan my vacations and short breaks.

Not only does it save me money but it also gives me tremendous freedom with my travel plans.

It is really very easy to plan your direct holidays.

When I first started I was a bit wary of booking things and scared that I might make some mistake that would cost me a lot of money.

A lot of people, when they first start, are scared to book accommodation and flights in case something goes wrong.

It?s the same old story the more you do it the easier it becomes.

Now there are very few places that I wouldn?t make my own arrangements for my family holiday breaks arrangements.

My experience is that by making all my own arrangements I increase the pleasure I get from my vacations, holidays and breaks. I also meet some wonderful people from different regions of the world.

Now, I fully design my own itinerary and enjoy a more informal and fun vacation experience.

The main thing to always remember when booking things online is to remain safe.

Never give your bank details away and only deal with site that are secure.

Use credit cards to pay not debit cards. You have protection using a credit card you don?t with debit.

Always get email receipts and firm confirmation of everything you have agreed to.

If you don?t feel happy about something, don?t do it. A few pounds saved isn?t worth losing sleep over.

Your planning and booking etc should be a joy not a chore.

Give yourself plenty of time. Don?t rush it.

First choose your dates because the more flexible your dates are the better deals you will be able to find.

Then have a broad look around at where you want to go. Find out what the broad-brush prices are for accommodation and trips etc, and when are the best times to go.

Once you?ve put together an itinerary begin to firm up your arrangements.

When booking flights find good flight search engines that will give lots of comparisons.

You can find a good selection at www.travelandshortbreaks.com/find-flights or similiar pages.

When booking accommodation check out the reviews before you book. You could use www.tripadvisor.com, which is one I use. I don?t always use them to book though because I look for price comparisons first at www.travelandshortbreaks.com/hotels.

When you know when and where you are going spend sometime visiting websites to get information on what to see and do.

From these searches you will be able to book sight seeing trips etc over the web.

Taxis, transfers, lounges, parking and insurance can all be done direct.

Building a direct vacation around your exact needs is not hard.

Give it a go!
