Package tour is the sum total of a variety of services offered to the tourists in one price, which normally is less expensive than that of each individual item. Such tours largely include the services of accommodation, transport, food, guide and other ground and miscellaneous services. Transport and accommodation form a significant proportion of the cost and service of any organised package tour.
In short, package tours are very economical and covenient for tourists as they help them locate tourist spots, hotels and modes of conveyance with ease and at the apportune moment.
Package tours not only save time and money tourists but also help suppliers to ensure sale of their services thus balancing the demand and supply in the travel market. Tour operator being a consolidator or wholesaler assembles primary and miscellaneous services with his own price tag.
However, packages are designed for independent and group tours after comprehensive research and analysis before it is launched in the market.
