Although Scotland is not a very large country, it’s impossible to plan to see too many destinations on your vacation. Therefore, you should prioritize and ask questions such as “What do I want to see now?”, “What can wait until the next trip?” A good idea to book a tour which will take you to the most destinations on your list.
Airfare to Scotland
The first thing you need to think about when you plan a vacation in Scotland is the plane ticket. If you are already in Europe, you’ll be able to find a low-cost flight into one of Scotland’s large airports (Edinburgh, Glasgow or Aberdeen). If you fly from overseas, you’ll most likely come to Scotland by way of a direct flight from London, followed by a low-cost flight.

Vacation packages are an excellent way to save money if you are willing to save some independence. They offer a cost-effective alternative to independent traveling. If you don’t want to worry about booking a flight, then a place to stay, then rent a car and figure out an itinerary, vacation packages will do all that for you and save some money (and time) in the process.
