Tour operators make use of bulk bookings from hotels, and are able to get good deals for food, sight seeing tours, transportation and any other services.

Tours offered: Tours usually comprise a group of people traveling together to the chosen destination on a pre-planned itinerary. Accommodation and transportation of any form, sightseeing and meals are usually covered in the package itself. A guide or a qualified tour administrator will accompany the group. Often there is a choice for individuals to travel by themselves and choose the required services for themselves as per their budget.

Type of accommodation: The accommodation offered in the holiday package must be the kind you have decided. For e.g. if it is a holiday package to a beach, the traveler can choose from ocean facing or inland facing rooms.

Flight details: The cost of air travel and the point from where the package begins and terminates has to be clear. The traveler has to be advised on the baggage allowance too.

Local transportation: Details on the mode of travel at the tour destination and transportation that is part of the package has to be given to the traveler.

Services: Check for all the services that will be provided at the tour destination from sight seeing guides to local host to drivers to porterage has to be clearly mentioned by the package tour operator.

Insurance: Ask for trip cancellation insurance and tour protection insurance from your package tour operator.

The latter makes certain you get your money back in case the tour operator goes bankrupt.
