Getting the best possible deal
The difference between a holiday supermarket and a small tour operator is exactly the same as the difference between a corner shop and a huge out-of-town superstore; one specialises in a limited amount of product lines while the other offers an enormous range that covers virtually every possible requirement.
Being totally independent from the large tour operators, a holiday supermarket such as Directline Holidays, is able to rapidly compare the prices of flights, insurance, car hire, hotels, excursions and even airport parking in search of the most competitive holiday package, and to offer completely impartial and well-informed advice to thousands of holidaymakers.
The personal touch is all
The best holiday supermarkets combine a vast, well-managed data base with the latest technology, allowing constant updating of information to ensure the lowest prices. The convenience and speed of technology is extremely important, but the final worth of a holiday supermarket comes down to the experience and knowledge of their staff, and their ability to assist customers towards the best possible choice. The experienced, professional and friendly team at Directline Holidays began putting into practice the holiday supermarket concept long before the term came into common use.
Having been in the holiday business for almost two decades, Directline Holidays has built excellent relationships with every kind of specialist in the holiday industry, from the biggest tour operators to the tiniest of specialist travel agents, dealing with everything from the cheapest apartment in the Algarve to the finest all-inclusive luxury hotel in the Maldives. We offer specialist holidays ranging from golf in Florida and diving in Egypt through to whale watching in Mexico and walking in Cyprus. Our sophisticated search technology constantly updates information and special offers; destination descriptions, reviews, things to do and weather pages offer some of the most comprehensive holiday-supermarket-style information on the web.
