While being pampered in an all-inclusive hotel has its appeal, many holidaymakers still prefer the flexibility offered by self catering villa and apartment holidays. If the idea of being self-sufficient appeals to you, at Co-operative Travel we have the widest selection of cheap self catering holidays to choose from.
Some destinations, for example Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt, and Cancun have made an industry out of all inclusive holidays in purpose-built hotels and self-contained resorts. Evidently, if your family holidays are being taken in an area where it’s hard to do day-to-day food shopping, then self catering isn’t really an option.
However, if you’re planning your holidays in an area like Spain or Greece, where eating out is cheap and there’s a plentiful supply of local shops and markets, then self catering will offer tremendous advantages over all-inclusive hotels.
While many low cost holidays are booked in hotels, they’re not always the bargain they appear. Even though your meals have been paid for, extras like between-meals snacks and drinks from the bar will soon add to the cost; it’s far cheaper to buy these things from the local shops. And what if the hotel food isn’t to your taste? You’re stuck – unless you eat out all the time, in which case why bother paying for full board?
Then there’s the sheer freedom that cheap self catering holidays offer. A large number of holidays will be in self-catering villas and apartments, in regions like the Mediterranean, Algarve and Canary Islands. All have a great local atmosphere and fantastic range of cheap restaurants and shops. Imagine mingling with the locals at a Corfu market, or feasting on the day’s catch at a harbour taverna in Portugal? If you find yourself lost in the local culture you can just lay back and enjoy the ambience, with no need to worry about missing meals.
At Co-operative Travel we understand that self catering isn’t for everyone, but it’s certainly an option worth considering when you book your next holiday.
