You Travel on Holiday. You have to prepare your own food, but it's an affordable Holiday
Instead of going on holiday and staying at a hotel, where the 24-hour-a-day team of conscientious staff look after you, serving you with meals, cleaning up after you, and providing all the backup services, it is possible for you to arrange a self-catering holiday. You can look after yourself, and this saves a lot of money on the holiday.

Self-Catering holidays are often very much cheaper than hotels. There's a good reason for this: It's all the money saved versus having hotel staff, and the efficiency of the methods, (for example if you're self-catering you don't need to change the sheets every day, whereas in a hotel they do that!). Self-catering may not be as luxurious, but it represents a considerable holiday cost saving.
