The first person who thought of an early form of "package tour," was Thomas Cook in 1841. However, he actually made it happen in the year of 1855, and by 1872, he was launching around-the-globe package tours. In the late 1950s and 1960s, the already cheap package tours that combine hotel room, transfers, and airplane ticket made it possible for most people around the world to afford to travel overseas. As time was passing and the package tours were the preferred option by many, in 2005, a big number of customers started avoiding them. The regular consumers started travelling with budget airplanes and as well started making reservations for hotel rooms of their own choice. The downfall in the package tour market led to the merger of the entire tour operator market that is now being dominated by a couple of big tour operators. The returning of package tours happened in 2009, as the consumers started looking for better security of their funds, and as the hidden costs of "no-frills" airplane tickets started increasing.

Package tours are arranged by registered travel companies, who plan and arrange a travel for a person, who wants to make a trip or to go on holiday. Package tours have many advantages. You can look at some of them below.

If you are a very busy person, a package tour (Do you know that the Danish term is Pakkerejser?) would be a great option for you. The reason for this is that you do not have to search for additional time in your busy schedule, so that you actually plan your trip or holiday. The package tour operator that you choose will do it all for you. That includes making reservations for hotels and booking the appropriate airplane ticket – does not really sound like much, but it is definitely worth it.

It is so much easier for the package tour operator to actually make hotel reservations for you, instead of you making it for yourself, just because they have way more contacts than you do, and they know when and where to call. This is one of the most important advantages.

You would not have to deal with last-minute frustration of undue and delays, if you have it all done by your package tour company. They take very good care of their customers, which means if they succeed in assuring your comfort, next time you decide to take package tour trip, you will probably choose them over a company you have never heard of.

Package tours are developed in a way, so that the customers paying for them have the chance of seeing many more landmarks, again all because they want you to be completely satisfied with the service they provide. An appropriate amount of time is spent in every destination that you are travelling through. Finding the prominences yourself might cost you much time you might not actually have. In a package tour, all the sites that are interesting to be seen are chosen in advance and there are no details left for you to figure out.

Package tours are great for families too. Keep in mind that package tours are saving your time to plan and arrange details. Find out more travel tips at this blog. If you want to read more great travel tips, take a look at this website.
