Many of us go away on holiday to relax and it is often something that we all look forward to. It can be that break away from day to day life of work and home routines, but many people enjoy different sorts of holidays and what one person may find relaxing another person may find boring. People have different views on what makes a great holiday, with some people wanting nothing more than to laze around a swimming pool or topping up their tan on a beach to others looking for something a little more exhilarating such as a skiing trip or hike up a mountain.

If you want to go on a relaxing holiday but also explore a little and do something exciting, then do some research on trips that run local to where you are staying. Your holiday rep will be able to advise you on some but if you know which ones you want to do before going, you can shop around for the best deal. Not only will you be able to find out useful information such as opening times, prices and things to do whilst there but also to see if you can get a better deal if you book in advance or are able to find a voucher code online.
