If you look for one-stop shopping when planning a trip, vacation packages are the way to go. And the bonus is that you won't just save time, you'll save money, too. Tour companies, such as Pleasant Holidays and Classic Vacations reserve their air seats and hotel rooms in bulk, making their vacation packages hard to beat in cost. Travelers get to enjoy the savings while taking a private vacation that is often heaped with discounted amenities and value-added options.
