There is no doubt that coach tours and escorted touring holidays are very popular these days. If you have never considered a coach touring holiday, here are some pointers to help you decide that an escorted coach tour is right for you.
A major benefit, of course, is the cost. It is really hard to beat the price of an arranged tour. Every operator providing coach trips are able to negotiate volume deals with hoteliers, because they provide regular, year-round business for hotels. So you can travel at almost wholesale rates, and certainly better rates than via the internet.
Many people are fed up of trying to book their own tailor-made tours via the web, looking for the best hotel deals. They find that coach trips are priced clearly, with no hidden extras, with clear daily itineraries and detailed meal plans. It's so much easier to use the web to download the brochure, with everything laid out and ready to absorb!
And then there is the convenience of knowing that you need cash only for the occasional meal. Even on coach holidays to Europe and further afield, we all like a bit of free time to explore so it's good to have some meals away from the group sometimes.
Of course a major factor is that you do not miss the important aspects of your chosen destination. Coach tour managers have the knowledge and experience to include all the great places of interest, and then some more! And of course you don't have to worry about additional cash and hassle for entrance fees as usually everything is pre-paid.
And finally - friendships! On a tour, you are likely to be travelling with like-minded folk. Your holiday in enjoyed in the company of your fellow ravellers.You can expect many lasting friendships to develop from an escorted touring holiday.
