Holiday package deals QLD- What’s included in a good QLD holiday package?
Whether you are looking for luxury packages in QLD or basic beach packages in QLD- there are a few minimum expectations you should have so as to ensure all the planning is done and there are no hidden costs or surprises. Always double-check the following-
Flights- when are they? You should ideally arrive and leave in the morning- maximising your holiday time and minimising time waiting around airports.
Accommodation- A good QLD holiday package should include a minimum of 3 star accommodation in a location close to all attractions.
Car Hire/ transfers- Are these included? Avoid expensive taxi fares or horrible bus rides by simply asking for airport transfers. With car hire- check the excess, size and quality of the vehicle being provided- its only a bargain if it’s reliable!
Meals- if you are staying in a hotel, breakfasts can be expensive extra’s- check they are included and find out if other meals are also included too- the more the better! When booking resort packages in QLD meals should be a basic inclusion as some resorts can be somewhat isolated (eg. island resorts) and the cost of basic meals and snacks can add up quickly.
Tours/ Attractions- A good value QLD holiday package will have tours or entry to attraction included. On the Gold Coast these may include the major theme parks or Currumbin sanctuary, while in Far north QLD you may opt in for a fishing tour, whale watching or a Great Barrier Reef tour.
