What Type Of Vacations Are There?

Written by

The type of vacation you want to take is as unique as you are. 


Easter IslandWhen looking at a land vacation, the first thing you should figure out is what kind of travel you want to do – adventure, relaxing, educational, or something specialized like a culinary tour?  Do you want to travel with a group or have a family vacation or reunion?  Would you like to have a guided tour with a set itinerary or do you want to choose day to day what you are going to do?

Once you decide where you want to go, you have to decide HOW you want to go.  A vacation “package” is a term that covers anything included with your vacation.  It could be simply your flights, hotel and rental car or transportation.  Some may include meals or tickets to theme parks, attractions or theater shows. There are all-inclusive options that will include all your meals and beverages.  A vacation package can be something that is prearranged by a tour company, or can be put together to make your own individual package.
