P5 Unit 8 Long Haul Travel Destinations

P5 Plan a multi centre long haul tour to meet a given UK visitor profile, showing sources used

A country or tourist area should be chosen for P5 and I would suggest that you pick South East Asia as there is so much to see and do.

You have been given a very fun brief in the assignment.  Your multi centre tour needs to contain at least four centres.  A centre is a main stop within the itinerary.

The tour should be presented as an itinerary and should include transport arrangements to and from the UK and between the four centres.

It should also include details of accommodation used en route and at each centre any car hire, excursions or trips that are pre-booked as well as any attractions that you include and any events that are available to the visitors at that time of year at each centre.

This tour needs to be unique and constructed personally by you.

It should not be copied in part from any existing tour or available today in a brochure or online.

Evidence of research

This challenge expects you to provide a list of evidence (sources) of your research which should be included with this work as a separate bibliography to support this achievement . The bibliography should be referenced in the learners work.  Any research used must be edited into your own words

The Customer Brief

This can be found in the assignment and includes the visitor profile, budget, motivation for the trip, visitor type and restrictions.  Although we don't need a detailed costing you will need to consider the cost when choosing the accommodation or transport and when creating.

M3 Independently plan a detailed multi centre tour, clearly justifying selections for the specified visitor profile

To achieve M3 you need to justify the choices that you have made for all aspects of the planned tour and referring back to the visitor profile.  This could be done verbally or in written format but verbally would require a recording and a witness statement


.Plan of action


  1. Go East! to somewhere that 21-28 days will be interesting and exciting
  2. Sort flights first - can you get to these places?
  3. Then add hotels to meet needs of the couple
  4. Now add activities, time out, sightseeing, day trips, rest days
  5. Ensure the itinerary is in day by day order
  6. Job done!
