And is it really worth vacation by yourself?

The original version of this page in Russian is located here. We are apologize for any possible inaccurate and incorrect translation of certain phrases and expressions below.

Despite the fact that the site is "Our planet" is designed primarily for independent travel, we decided in this article to address the question of whether or not to go on holiday alone. To be clear, just note that it is about short-term tourist trips to resorts, particularly popular for recreation, not long journeys through many places and countries, after which you go home and say, "Well, finally, now I can relax!". Suggest you think seriously, is it worth it to change travel on the ticket, an independent organization, unless you intend to travel to a distant country from end to end and visit melitopolya non-tourist places. Is it really more profitable? In fact, everything in this question is not so clear.

By the way, in the Internet you can often meet the view that if you organise your holiday abroad or in Russia independently, i.e. to buy tickets, arrange visa, book hotel, take out insurance – it can be very hard to save. Especially often such statements occur on sites that sell various paid video courses and advice for tourists. The authors of these courses promise to teach you how to travel around the world alone for mere pennies, while still trying to convince that it is possible to earn on such trips. Apparently, the authors of these courses has a secret. I assume that this secret – how to fool everyone, including buyers courses. Anyway, I suggest you take a sober look at the organization of independent travel before you plunge into the wonderful world of independent travel:

The first question - Finance

Let's start with the basics – the cost of tickets and hotels.

To you someone told or you have read that you can instead of purchasing the vacation package (tour) buy ticket, book hotel and as a result, nothing to pay the tour operator? So, supposedly, it will be cheaper. Have you ever tried it?

For starters, try to really compare the cost of tickets for regular flights and the cost of permits. The reality is that in most cases, the cost of air travel on scheduled flights is higher than the cost of permits. Sometimes you can find Charter flights are cheaper than tickets, but this is, firstly, if you're lucky; and secondly, the date and time you will not be able to find such as you need have to adapt to what is.


But the cost of tickets will have to add the cost of the hotel. Only in rare cases when this approach fails, at least something to save.

Don't forget to add the cost of insurance. Though not a lot, $ 20 per person, but still.

Well, now don't forget that you also need to somehow get to your resort from the airport. A batch of tourists will be put together in a bus or van and take you free and you will have to take a taxi or local transport. Again costs.

The second question – security

While in a foreign country without a permit for everything that happens to you, you are responsible for yourself and completely left to themselves. Even insurance you don't help you, because, actually, in practice, to obtain from insurance companies at least some assistance while abroad is very difficult. What here to speak about all kinds of conflict situations and misunderstandings.

Of course, it should not be assumed that the resident will be led by the hand from the hotel to the beach, but, nevertheless, the tour operator is responsible and cares about the tourists in the best of their ability. It carries real legal and financial responsibility for your person. If something happens, at least there will be someone to call and ask for help.

However, keep in mind that standard travel insurance included in tour packages that covers almost nothing, and achieve a payoff very difficult. Therefore, it makes sense to arrange additional insurance with the option of driving a moped/motorcycle or sports. To compare the cost of travel insurance options from different insurance companies and place it online are these trusted sites:

The third question – saving time

If you are interested in not only lying on the beach, and I want to see something interesting, the tour operators offer a lot of tours. Sometimes beach tours are supplemented by excursions. All pre-planned, tested and ready for consumption. And you don't need to bother and spend time at home in preparation for a trip on the study routes, sights, ways to get to them.

So why, you ask, the site is "Our planet" devoted to independent travel and who wants to do that? But the fact that if you once take a self drive, hardly you will want to go back on tour. Freedom and a slight feeling of "pioneering", which gives independent travel is a real passion that will constantly excite you before each trip. So, if you want the rest of my life "to sit on the needle" in anticipation of waiting for a new travel, then independent travel is for you.
