operators as it is the most popular month to a book a holiday in the UK.

To help you make
better holiday plans for 2015 here are a few tips to follow to get that ideal

Choosing the Right Holiday Type

When you decide
to go on a holiday, deciding on the type of holiday is the first step to get
the ball rolling on your holiday plan. Some people know exactly what they want
from a holiday e.g. scuba diving, dive
, skiing, visiting the Egyptian pyramids, etc., whereas others
need a helping hand in the decision making. Some go for a relaxing beach
holiday compared to people who want an adventure holiday compared to people who
want a city break. There are a great number of tour operators specialised in
beach, cultural and adventurous holidays including scuba diving who will be
happy to provide you with a lowdown of holiday types to help you make the
decision that is right for you.

Holiday Budget

Once you have
decided on the type of holiday get a budget in mind and stick to it. Have a
maximum spend budget so you are able to look at a variety of options in your
price range, this will make it easier to make a choice. Be sure to let your
travel agent know what your budget is as this will save you from getting a
number of quotes and itineraries that do not fit your budget. Also ensure that
budget does not compromise your holiday experience and financial protection.
When deciding on a budget ensure you consider booking the holiday with an ATOL
protected company so that your holiday and money is 100% protected.

Choosing a Holiday Destination

Once you have
the type of holiday and budget in mind the next step is to find a destination.
Like I said earlier some people know exactly where they want to go, however
some people need to do a bit more research to get inspired. Researching
destinations online is a great way to find out a lot of information about a
place, alternatively popping into a travel agent and speak to an advisor. Most
travel agents have years of experience organising holidays around the world and some have had the pleasure of
visiting these destinations which means they can offer you first hand advise.
