There’s no doubts that if you’re looking to arrange a Algarve holiday then the easy, low-hassle and safe option is to book a package holiday with one of the leading package holiday tour operators.
A fair few of us have tried booking our own independent holiday to Algarve in the past and generally all works out well. There’s a lot more admin involved and the added worry that all parts of the holiday will fit together ok. I’ve known people who’ve had their flights delayed by a few hours only to find on arrival at Algarve airport that their pre-booked transfer had left without them or for those that had pre-booked car rental the car rental desk had closed for the night.
Of course, delays or hiccups are all the problems of the tour operator if you’ve booked a Algarve package holiday. You have little to worry about.
It’s always important to book with an ABTA bonded and well respected tour operator. The two UK leaders in the market are Thomson and Thomas Cook. Considering the vast size of their operations they have outstanding customer satisfaction reputations. They have really increased the quality of their service following the increased competition from low cost airlines.
If you want your Algarve holiday to be just that, a real holiday, then a package holiday is usually a safe option. You’ll always have the services of a rep in resort with the full might of the tour operator at their disposal.
The two largest package holiday operators from the UK are Thomson and Thomas Cook and they offer some fantastic Algarve holidays but there are plenty of smaller operators if you look around.Share
