Turkey trip

  1. 1. Trip To Turkey Trip planner: Aditi MBA IB (2B)
  2. 2. Trip for whom: I have planned this “Trip to Turkey” – an ancient country for my family. This is a beautiful holiday destination. My family includes my father-in-law, mother- in-law; they both are around 60 and I and my husband are around 30 and a small child who is of 3 years. We all like visiting new places. So I have planned the whole trip considering my families tastes, their likings and their ages. Even small things are taken care of like • The timings of flights of departure n arrival on both sides • The cities and various spots chosen to be visited as per the taste of family. • The mode of transportation. I have chosen the bus package, which will pick us from the airport and will drop us back to airport after taking us the tour of Turkey. The bus we have selected is an air conditioned bus, with all the modern facilities, n it’s a sleeper bus so if we are travelling in the night so everyone should feel comfortable. • Hotels which I have selected are 2 star, 3 star with all the modern facilities and the and good restaurants. • The other restaurants for lunch n dinner are taken care also. • So from the whole planning I tried to meet the economies of scale by considering the money factor as well as quality factor also.
