I like to travel fairly independently, booking my own flights (usually through AirMiles) and accommodation. I like doing the research, and the challenge of getting good value for money and staying somewhere a little different, and I prefer smaller hotels, apartments or B&B's rather than the large impersonal hotels. I like to meet the local people, buy food in the markets, try out the language and at least feel like a bit of an explorer! It's easy to get a terrific holiday at a fraction of the price of a brochure holiday. I hate the package holiday thing - having to pay extra for every last thing on the flight and being herded onto a coach, waiting hours for the stragglers (who you then find have taken a taxi and not told anyone!) and then the tedium of the stops at every hotel along the way - and then the dreaded welcome meeting and overpriced trips! My idea of hell!
