4 reasons to organise vacation on your own

Greece ● 27 March 2018
 

Holiday packages were a trend the past decades. Without internet and online deals, it was really difficult to plan vacation without the aid of a travel agency. Now, the generation of millennials travels in a different way. They organise travelling through internet, find great offers and enjoy a freedom that plays a key role to happy holidays. Have you ever thought why organising vacation on your own, searching everything that the new destination has, is a must? Read here all the reasons and be a modern explorer of the world!

Of course, organised tours are necessary when visiting an unsafe country with a totally different culture than yours. However, Greece is a European, safe country with all the touristic facilities you many need. Thus, you don't need a guide and a strict schedule tour to wander around and discover the beaches, the villages, the historical monuments and the traditional taverns.

  


Flexibility

Holiday packages are cool when you want to stay in a hotel in the place you have visited or follow the group in an organised tour. If you are the type of traveller, who wants flexibility and freedom, it is better to organise your vacation by yourself, taking care of the details that define you. You can find super accommodation deals in rooms to let and hostels, and if you want to visit more Greek islands, the Greek Island Hopping ferry pass gives you the flexibility of travelling whenever you want between the islands at an unbeatable price!


Off-the-beaten-path destinations

Greece is full of famous islands. But what if you want to explore off-the-beaten-track places and see the authentic side of this popular country? If you want to speak with the locals on an untouched island and be in contact with nature in a remote village away from mass tourism? This kind of vacation you can't do with a holiday package, which shows you only the renowned corners of this amazing country with the great variety. With a holiday package, you go to Mykonos but not to the Caribbean of Greece, Koufonissi. To Rhodes, but not to the small island with the most beautiful port in the Aegean Sea, Symi. To Corfu, but not to the tiny islands with the emerald waters, Paxoi and Antipaxoi.


No extra costs

When you pay a holiday package, you can also find good deals. However, if you take a closer look at the details, you realise that you pay some extra things, such as booking fees, the payment of the travel agency or the guided tour. Thus, it is possible that you pay less if you want to search the deals you can find on the internet because you have no extra costs.


The feeling of real travelling

Last but not least, you can't understand the vibes of the place you have visited, if you don't wander around, if you don't speak to the locals, if you don't get lost and try to find your way out. The real, modern traveller is the person, who doesn't afraid to discover new things, go out of the his/ her comfort zone. This is the difference between a tourist and a traveller...
