What you miss in Package tours?
Packaged Tours have become a thing of past. The tour that comes with timings and limits of each and everything and nothing left for you to do and discover on your own can never be exciting and thrilling as the one you make on your own. Guaranteed that you will have to do some research on the place you are visiting, conveyances and stays, but you can spend the rest of the evening on a spot you find appealing without having to worry about the bus timings or being left. You can explore the place in the way YOU think is the best; stay at places YOU think are the best; eat at a joint YOU find good; interact with people YOU find funny and good and spend your time the way YOU feel is worthy.
Believe it or not, the Package Tours are just like a drill. You wake up to leave by a specified time and eat at a place the agent chooses for you. You are allowed to spend a fixed amount of time at every tourist attraction and after the time is lapsed, you have to leave no matter what. You cannot explore the land on your foot and have to stay at a hotel your agent gets commission. In fact, if you think about it, you can save a lot of money and end up enjoying way more if you plan your trip on your own instead of opting for any travel agent. The sense of independence and exploring the unknown land on your own in your own way is constantly missing in the Package Tours.
Further, when it comes to the cost of the whole tour, the package tours cost more than the self-planned ones. The agent earns commissions in every booking and organizing. Be it the activities or the hired conveyances, or food joints, and every other thing that comes in the ‘Package’; the agent will surely get his or her commission. Apart from the agent, the people involved in the whole chain will be having their commission. The food served in the packaged tours as Tiffin is generally of poor quality and you get very few options. While travelling on your own doesn’t come with added commissions, you can eat as per your taste and wish and stay at the kind of accommodation you like.
This is what HeyHolidays specializes in. With property listings for Bed-n-Breakfasts over the whole world (30 countries and 70+ cities in India), HeyHolidays has reduced the total cost of travelling by a good figure.

If you are travelling in a group, it is better to go on your own as you are not afraid of getting lost in a new place or left alone in any problem. Travelling with a group gets even better with HeyHolidays as you get to stay in a single place such as a villa or a cottage for your whole trip and thus you are able to enjoy your trip to the maximum possible extent.
