    Question travelling

    There are generally two ways of travelling. One is travelling all by oneself, the other is travelling with a travelling agency. What I am not sure is that how to express the two ways in the most accurate and correct way, like in the following circumstance:

    I would like to travel by entering my name with a travelling agency instead of all by myself, as I don't know much about the place and don't want to be lost.

    Please correct me of every error I made in the above sentence. Thanks a lot!

    "Independent traveller" is a common phrase when you travel alone and make all your own travel arrangements. If the travel agent organises everything for you - flights, accommodation, tours, etc - then that is often called a "package(d) holiday" in the UK.
