From my own experience I know that it is a lot cheaper to rent an apartment directly from the owner in some nice holiday resort and then travel by plane to a chosen location rather than purchasing a trip that includes everything. Doing everything separately gives you also more freedom while making right choice when it comes to your accommodation, types of meals and flight details.
Whenever you fly by plane to your chosen destination you will need a transfer from the airport to a place where you are going to stay. If you have ever thought about French Alps, then you may require airport transfer to your final destination.
Even if you are not planning to visit French Alps, you might actually change your mind and holiday plans if you look at some pictures of the area. The photos displayed on the Web show really magnificent views that one can admire while being a tourist in that particular region. Go and see it for yourself.
