2)Does 'independent holidays' mean "holidays during which others don't affect me"? Arguments about a drift away from package tours and towards independent holidays may be somewhat simplistic. 1)What does "a drift" mean? I think drift means "travel from place to place without a plan" Arguments about turning your attention from package tours to independent holidays may be somewhat simplistic. 2)Does 'independent holidays' mean "holidays during which others don't affect me"?

1. It does, but not in this context. Here it means a slow trend, or a gradual movement. It refers to a suggestion that more people these days are taking independent holidays as opposed to package tours. 2. I think you can probably guess from the context, can't you? If people are choosing to take independent holidays rather than package tours, then independent holidays must contrast with package tours. Think about what a package tour is, then think about what the opposite must be.
