. . . things that might help to arrange your holiday
Cooking holidays are not like the mainstream package holidays that most people are used to. These are bespoke holidays tailored to the requirements of a select few and organised by individuals or small businesses motivated by their enjoyment of their way of life and a desire to share it with you for a brief period.
Being for few in numbers and having none of the buying power of the big multinational travel companies travel arrangements are rarely, if ever, included in a cooking holiday. The reason for this is twofold. Firstly, as I have said there is not the economy of scale to make it cost effective, and secondly, with low-cost flights booked via the Internet now firmly here to stay it is far more cost effective to book your own flights.
Booking your own flights means that you can arrange to fly from where is most convenient to you and by cutting out the middle man you benefit from low pricing.
The same logic applies if you wish to travel by car to a cooking holiday in France. It is cheaper and easier to make your own arrangements, whether it is the booking of a cross channel ferry, raveling through the Chunnel or flying to your destination and then hiring a car locally.
