9 years ago

Millions of people over the world go on holiday every year,
all with different requirements for their perfect holiday. From city breaks to
beach holidays tourists travel to various destinations around the world to have
a new experience, whether it is to gain knowledge of a culture, explore
historic sites to sitting on beach soaking up the warm sun! January is a busy
month for travel agencies and tour 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 holiday:
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 Philippines,
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 specialized 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
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 organizing holidays around
the world and some have had the pleasure of visiting these destinations which
means they can offer you first hand advise.
Booking your holiday
There are a variety of ways to book a holiday and these include phone, on the
internet or going into a retail shop. My advice to you would be to look around
for the best options in terms of price, experience, service and financial
protection. There are a number of independent travel agents and tour operators
that offer great value holidays with a personalized service which you will not
receive from large companies! Once you have found your perfect holiday for the
perfect price go ahead, ensure the company you are booking with is ATOL
protected and if so confirm the booking. This is when the stress of booking a
holiday is over and you can start looking forward to that dream holiday! Dive Holidays
