WHAT IS THE TOUR?
Without question, one of the most significant segments of the global, leisure-travel market is that of tours. Major tourism associations believe that the package tour produc twill continue to be highly popular with the traveling public. Social trends predict that a large portion of the growth of tour products will be in “partly packaged” holidays, customized holidays and dynamic packaging, while interest in traditional all-inclusive tour packages may drop.
A tour package can be defined as any form of travel from place to place, with multiple features that can be packaged and sold as single units.
Travel professionals identify two basic types of tours: pre-packaged tours and custom-designed tours. Pre-packaged tours can be further divided into three sub types: independent, hosted and escorted. Advance to the next topic to learn about the types of tour packages.
