Explanation of Holiday Types available through Holidays4Travel
At Holidays4Travel Ltd because we are a member of the Travel Trust Association we are able to offer you different types of holiday. This relates to the way your holiday is booked and also the protection you are given on your holiday. Whereas other travel agents may not offer full protection of your holiday money, we are able to do so due to the setup we have in place with the TTA. For more info please read our page about Financial Protection
Package Holidays (third party)
A third party Package holiday is the traditional type of holiday you may be familiar with. The hotel and flights are pre-packaged by a third party travel supplier, usually a tour operator and we act as an agent on their behalf, selling you a ready-made holiday. These holidays are usually 7, 10 or 14 nights in duration and usually include transfers, in-flight meals etc.
Flight Inclusive Holiday / Tailor-made Holidays / Dynamic Package/ Hotel+Flight holiday
A dynamic package holiday, which may also be called tailor-made, hotel+flight or a flight inclusive holiday, is where we arrange two or more elements of a holiday to provide you with a holiday that includes flights and accommodation and sometimes other extras (such as car hire, transfers, tours). We act as an agent for these third party travel suppliers, who may be different for each element of the holiday. Therefore although you book through us, we may book your holiday through 3 or 4 different suppliers. Holidays are created like this to provide maximum value for money and more flexibility for the customer. Non-compulsory extras such as transfers, in-flight meals may not be included automatically so you have to make sure you select them when booking or ask our staff to book them for you.
Hotel Only / Accommodation Only
Sometimes customers prefer to book their flights directly with an airline and so choose just to book their holiday accommodation with us. Bear in mind if you do book your flights yourself that they may not be ATOL protected. By booking your accommodation with us you benefit from financial protection through our TTA membership and a huge choice of hotels, apartments and villas worldwide. ATOL protection does not apply when booking a hotel only although you do still benefit from any other forms of protection we have in place as part of our membership of the TTA.
Occasionally we may 'package' a holiday ourselves by contracting directly with a hotel and flight supplier. In this instance we are acting as your holiday provider, much like when we sell third party package holidays to you. We will make it clear to you on any documentation if this is the case.
