All Inclusive Holidays

What is an all-inclusive holiday?

An All-Inclusive Holiday is a type of stay which includes all of your meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) within the price of the holiday as well as selected drinks with your food. The All-Inclusive Holiday is tied in very closely with the rise of the package holiday throughout the second half of the last century.

Spain, Greece and Turkey were amongst the first destinations to completely adopt the first set of all-inclusive packages and they remain as some of the hottest all-inclusive destinations today. These types of holidays are now the most popular type of board accounting for over 50% of holidays booked.

Generally speaking, alcoholic drinks and other activities won’t be included within a standard all-inclusive deal. However, there are some destinations that offer “Ultra All-Inclusive” options which tend to include all meals, snacks, beverages (including alcoholic drinks) and often activities that are hosted by the hotel. On the other hand, “All-Inclusive Lite” resorts usually offer a little less than regular All-Inclusive.

Why should you book an all-inclusive holiday?

All-inclusive holidays are the perfect option when you want to completely kick back and relax and have everything taken care of for you. It is for those who want to put their feet up for the whole holiday and not have to worry about finding somewhere to eat. It is for those who always want to be in view of the swimming pool and who prefer spending most of the holiday sipping cocktails on sun loungers.

Europe has always been the best hotspot for these types of holidays, especially places like the Balearic and Canary Islands on top of the countries already mentioned. There are, however, now great all-inclusive deals to be found all over the world. Mexico is just one example of a popular all-inclusive destination that is a bit further afield.

Save money with an all-inclusive holiday

Despite the upfront cost being more expensive, many travellers find that they end up saving money when they book an all-inclusive holiday. This is because once it is paid, there are few expenses to think about when you are actually out there. This means that it is much easier to budget and there is less paying for expensive meals in tourist hotspot areas that you weren’t ready for.
