Planning a Holiday

More and more people take holidays abroad every year, and a recent survey has shown that they would rather cut back spending on food and clothing during the year than spend less on holidays. Choosing the holiday is not always easy but in this day and age there is a wide range of choice, you should be able to find something to suit your taste, and pocket.

Some people like planning their holiday independently, while others prefer to book a package. It depends on where you're going, how much money you have, and whether you're traveling alone, or with friends or family.

The obvious advantage of a package holiday is that it's simple to organize. You book the holiday through a travel agent, and transport, insurance and accommodation are all arranged for you. All you have to do is pay the bill. If you take an independent holiday, on the other hand, you can spend a lot of time and a small fortune checking complicated timetables, chasing cheap flights, and trying to make hotel bookings in a language you can't even speak. What is more, package holidays are often incredibly cheap. For the price of a suit, you can have a fortnight in a foreign resort, including accommodation, meals, and air travel. A similar independent holiday, however, can work out much more expensive.

Yet the advantages of planning your holiday yourself are considerable. You are free to choose exactly where and when you want to go, how you want to travel, and how long you want to stay. You can avoid the large resorts, whereas holiday-makers on package tours are often trapped among crowds of other tourists. You can eat the food of the region at reasonable prices in local restaurants, while they are served with "international" dishes and chips with everything. Besides, although package holidays are usually extremely good value for money, they are not always cheaper. If you're willing to take a little trouble, you may be able to save money by fixing up a foreign holiday yourself.

All things considered, what kind of holidays would you choose?

Step 1. Statements: true or false

  1. Most holiday makers choose not to economize oh their holidays.

  2. Everybody knows which holiday is ideal for him/her.

  3. Both independent and package holidays are simple to organize.

  4. Independent holidays are always cheaper than package tours.

  5. Package tours give holiday-makers less freedom of choice.

STEP 2. Fill in the table with advantages of package and independent holidays. The first one is done for you.
