All-inclusive for value and peace of mind!
All-inclusive holidays are great for families and couples no matter what their budget. The packages include your flights, transfers to and from your hotel, your accommodation, breakfasts, lunches, evening meals, drinks and ice creams.
If you want to spend the day on the beach, simply order a packed lunch to take with you, so that you don’t have to return to your hotel half way through the day or spend extra money on eating out.
All-inclusive hotels have outdoor swimming pools, sun beds, nightly entertainment and other facilities that you can use at no extra cost, so you don’t even have to leave the hotel.
Bookings for all-inclusive holidays have risen by 50 per cent over four years, with the boom as a result of post-crunch financial pressure. A third of package holidays are now all-inclusive, according to an analysis of seven million bookings over the past four years by The Co-operative Travel. Many find cheap deals for what were once considered the luxury end of the market, with some all-in breaks working out as little as £342 a person for a week in Tenerife.
Booking a budget airline flight and a cheap hotel separately online can seem cheaper but many holidaymakers then find they spend a lot more than anticipated when they are there. Spending money varies but on a non-inclusive package the typical Brit can get through around £450 over a fortnight, said The Co-operative.
Most all-inclusive deals include all meals and free drinks. Resorts with facilities such as water sports and spas will include those within the price of the package. The rise of the all-inclusive getaway shows no sign of slowing.
Those on non-inclusive holidays can spend an average of £450 in a fortnight, paying for things such as meals, drinks and activities Co-operative director of retail distributions, Trevor Davis, said: 'The growth in all-inclusive holidays is remarkable and shows no sign of slowing. 'By next summer, just under half of all package holidays are likely to be all-inclusive if the current trend continues. 'With holiday budgets still tight, it’s clear that more and more people are preferring a fixed cost option, meaning that they can relax during their break without counting the pennies.'
