There are many ways to travel these days, but one of the most popular ways to travel can be traced back to the mid-19th century, when the first ever package holiday was organised, with a bespoke train trip between the cities of Leicester and Loughborough in England. Since then, package holidays have been increasingly in demand by the public, and with the summer months just around the corner, many people are looking to book package holidays 2014 for their families.

Once they arrived at their destination, they were then free to completely relax and unwind at their resort, or take part in some further organised excursions and tours that had been organised by the travel company.
This undoubtedly made the travel experience much less stressful for the consumer, and as package holidays grew in popularity, a number of other travel companies began offering them, which then lead to more routes and more destinations being opened up to travelers during the year. Because of this, and all the choice offered to travellers, different types of package holidays began to emerge, from affordable weeks in the sun in Spain, to adventure holidays in Africa, and more upmarket type of package holiday began to emerge.
