Organizing your flight inclusive Caribbean vacation
Some travellers like to travel in luxury and have it all organized
for them, while others prefer to do it all themselves. So, before you even plan your Caribbean vacation, there is
an important decision you have to make:
Do you organize your Caribbean vacation yourself? Or do you hand all
the work to a more experienced tour operator and get him to organize your vacation flights, too?
Well, the decision is yours to make. There are advantages and
disadvantages to each option. Here are pros and cons of organizing your Caribbean vacation yourself vs. letting an
experienced tour operator do it for you.
Flight Inclusive Caribbean Vacation
First, let’s find out what a flight
inclusive Caribbean vacation means.
A flight inclusive Caribbean vacation is a holiday booked direct with
a tour operator, with your vacation flights included. One obvious advantage of this option is that it is often
simpler. You can even do it by just picking up a brochure and choosing the flight you want.
Another advantage in choosing a flight inclusive Caribbean vacation
over independent travel is that it is generally cheaper. Caribbean specialist travel organizers are also good
(maybe even better than you) at putting together a tailor made "package" that suits your needs. This package, so to
speak, contains all the elements of your Caribbean vacation from hotels and flights to transfers and a local
representative. And most
are bargains, offered at special rates with plenty of features only for the price of one. The only trouble with
these Caribbean vacation travel packages is that they would have to be made early as they could easily get
What’s more, with a flight inclusive Caribbean vacation, there is
more security for you. Most tour operators make an undertaking where they make themselves legally bound to take
care of you from the moment of departure until your return home. Some are even bonded for your financial security.
And finally, in the event of a natural disaster, failure of an airline or a dispute with one of your holiday
providers, you will only have to deal with just one organization, which is based in one country. So everything is
being made so much simpler for you.
Going to the Caribbean Vacation On Your Own
On the other hand, there are certain
reasons why you would want to go on a Caribbean vacation on your own. Indeed, an independent Caribbean vacation
travel provides you with the freedom to choose your own trip and even change it as you please. And with the
Internet in full force, that freedom is given even more leeway.
It is easy for anyone to book their own Caribbean vacation, including
vacation flights. All you really need is a computer and an Internet connection to access any travel booking site.
Most importantly, some of the loveliest Caribbean hotels are too small to feature in brochures so you will have to
book them independently.
One thing is for sure, you have a far better chance of enjoying every
aspect of the islands by going on an independent Caribbean vacation.
In addition, you may want to use your Air Miles when you travel.
Flight inclusive Caribbean vacation travel packages often do not give credit for air miles so at a time when you
can actually make use of your miles, you can’t. Whereas, if you travel independently, there is no reason why you
can’t use your air miles.
