Why choose a self catering holiday?


Self catering is all about choice and flexibility. It means you're not tied down to set meal times, and you can eat and drink when and where you like. It gives you the freedom to explore the area you're staying in and immerse yourself in the local culture.

That means you can enjoy fresh, authentic local cuisine at the restaurants you've read about online, or, if you're staying somewhere with your own kitchen and feeling a bit more adventurous, you can head to the local market or grocery store, pick up some supplies, and dream up your own exotic culinary creations.

Whatever your budget, self catering holidays offer the flexibility to live as luxuriously or inexpensively as you choose.

Unlike all-inclusive holidays or bed & breakfast, self catering holidays are a great option for families and larger groups, as the range of accommodation available is much wider. You and your friends or family can have an apartment or villa all to yourself, and take the time to enjoy everything your chosen destination has to offer.

What you need to know


If you plan to cook your own meals, remember to check what kitchen facilities are available and how well-equipped they are. If you plan to eat out, check how easy it will be get to local restaurants and cafes, and do some research before you set off to find the best places to eat.

For many people, the joy of travel is the chance to experience new things, and self-catering holidays allow you to do exactly that.
