The travel industry developed all-inclusive vacations and continues to innovate what is included. The reason why is that planning a vacation can be lot of work and difficult to coordinate. Flights, connections, hotel accommodations, meal planning (and research) and sightseeing tours, etc. add up to a lot of time invested to do a good job.
All inclusive vacation packages take care of all that for travellers.
To take an all-inclusive trip first you choose your best travel time, then your favourite destination and the services you want. Your travel agent will help you find the trip that meets your needs; you read over the information, pay for the package, sign the contract and enjoy your vacation.
All-inclusive vacation packages usually save money, as accommodations, meals, drinks and activities are typically included.
These are the four basic kinds of all-inclusive vacations: cruises, tours, resort vacations and specialty packages (like singles vacations, group vacations, family trips, etc.). All these packages have different things included.
• Cruise packages can include the cruise fee, an entertainment budget and transport back and forth, but won’t include seaport trips, or entry fees for port attractions.
• Touring packages usually include lodging, admission fees to attractions on the tour, a meal budget and travel/tour.
• Resort packages include transportation, lodging, some sports, selected spa services or other services and meals.
• Specialty packages are targeted to specific groups like couples, families or singles of either sex. These packages usually include all standard expenses.
When you are first checking these vacation packages, it can seem that they are more expensive. When you add up the cost of paying for a vacation, including each item you are going to spend on, you get a very different picture. They are often less expensive.
Your travel expert will be able to provide you with a useful comparison of prices. If you are paying in advance for everything, your all inclusive price can be discounted even further.
