There is more and more talk about Internet Fatigue among holidaymakers. Consumers can only cope with six or seven web pages before reaching their “tolerance levels”. There is never a box online that says “are you sure that’s a good idea?” and mistakes can so easily be made on the web. The trend is a move back to package holidays and a desire to speak to a real person. As the selling price for seats on no-frills carriers has risen, due to high oil prices, the competitive advantage of DIY travel is eroding. If you are looking at prices for the summer and are alarmed at the cost, get in touch and you may be surprised at the alternatives we at Charitable Travel can offer.
However, if you are reading my Luxury Page, you are probably used to travelling in style. Or maybe you’d like to get used to it?! So, how do you decide where to go this year? Perhaps you’ve been watching the TV travel ads over Christmas and thinking that nothing is inspiring you? Do you have the feeling that you’d like to do something different? I’d like to suggest a few alternatives to the tried and tested, switching the familiar for the not-so-familiar.
For example, have you been to Barbados, Antigua and St Lucia? Try one of the other islands such as Nevis, St Kitts, Domenica, Grenada and Jamaica. If you’ve been to Dubai and are wondering if its neighbours are as good, let me reassure you that they are, although all are different in their own right. Try Oman, Ras al Khaimah, Ajman, Fujairah.
Have you been to the Canaries more times than you can count? Switch to Cape Verde or Morocco. Have you been on safari to Kenya or Zambia? Try Tanzania, Botswana, and Uganda. Have you been to India and loved it? Try Sri Lanka, Kerala, and Goa.
Wherever you have already been, there is an alternative. The world is your oyster, as they say. For inspiration, you need look no further. I am never lost for ideas and suggestions, whether you are looking for a beach holiday, an adventure, a wedding abroad, a spa break, or a ski holiday. So, don’t waste your time trying to find that needle in a haystack. I have years of experience in the travel industry and can pull the proverbial rabbit out of the hat, saving you time and stress. Of course, all Lizzi’s holiday ideas are luxurious, stylish and best of all, by booking your luxury holiday through Charitable Travel you can donate 5% of your total holiday to charity, free of charge!
