I can do anything they can do better

The past 2 days I’ve been researching long-term budget group travel with reputable companies. I’ve come to the conclusion that anything they are doing, I can do better and cheaper.  Now, I understand that they are in the tourism business to make a profit and I respect that…but what benefit do I, the prospective customer, get out of paying other people to take me on a trip that I could put together myself…especially when I could make the trip cheaper and cater exactly to my own wants.  I get it, you’re paying for the ease and convenience of a pre-fab trip and the experience of the company.  But I can do this! lol makes me want to start up my own ecotourism company even more. It’s an idea I’ve been kicking around for a while and the more I think about it, the more I want to do it.

  1. We have been traveling for years planning our own trips here and abroad, making our own arrangements. And we agree with you that we get the trip we want for the right price. There are exceptions though that should not be passed up – like the decision to go with an Iceland tour group for a multi-day hike, sleeping in huttes, and seeing the most phenomenal scenery ever. That was not something we could have ever done on our own.

  2. Hurrah, I’m all for doing it yourself trips, it always makes for a more interesting experience. xx
