A holiday package or package tour is composed of transport and accommodation publicised and sold together by a seller known as a tour operator. Other services could be provided like a rental vehicle, activities or outings in the vacation. Package vacations are a kind of product bundling. Package vacations are arranged and sold by a tour operator or can be sold to a purchaser by a travel agent.
The 1st package tour to Europe was arranged by Thomas Cook in 1855, and by 1872 he was undertaking world wide tours. Horizon Vacation Group, pioneered the 1st mass package vacations abroad with charter flights between Gatwick and Corsica in 1950, and arranged the first package vacation to Palma in 1952, Lourdes in 1953, and the Costa Brava and Sardinia in 1954. By the late 1950s and 1960s, these cheap package vacations which combined flight, transfers and accommodation provided the 1st chance for the majority of people in the UK & Ireland to have cheap travel overseas.
One of the first charter airlines was Euravia, which began flights from Manchester airfield in 1961 and Luton airfield in 1962.
The trend for package vacation bookings saw a comeback in 2009, as buyers sought greater monetary security in the aftermath of several vacation and flight corporations going bankrupt, and as the concealed costs of ‘no-frills ‘ flights increased and not to mention the ash cloud.
