Top 5 Ways to Save on Your Next All Inclusive Holiday

Holidays often only come around once or twice a year, so you want to make the most of them. Choosing an all-inclusive holiday can be one of the best ways to do this. The reason for this is that you get food, drink, and often activities, included in the price.

This means that you do not have to worry as much about what you will spend while you are away. However, you need to decide whether going all inclusive is the right decision for you.

Why choose all inclusive?

Obviously you want to make best use of your holiday budget. Choosing an all-inclusive break can help you to do this. You can get access to the food and drink that you need while you are away, as well as accommodation and flights.

You may also find that extra services are included in the all-inclusive price, such as poolside service, laundry and room service. This means that you can completely relax and enjoy the break. This is a big advantage of paying for an all-inclusive holiday.

If you can see the benefits of an all-inclusive break, you need to make it as affordable as possible.

How to save money on an all-inclusive holiday

It's possible to get an all-inclusive holiday at a great price, if you plan ahead and do your research. Here are some tips to help.

Make sure that the location is suited to all-inclusive

It's important to realise that not every location is best suited to going all-inclusive. For instance, if you are thinking of travelling to the Caribbean, it's often a lot more affordable to stay in an all-inclusive resort than to try and cater for yourself.

However, if you are travelling to Europe, you may be able to eat out quite affordably. You need to balance this against the other benefits that you may get from an all inclusive option, such as additional services.

Book at the right time

If you can, it's a good idea not to travel during school holidays. However, this can be an issue if you are travelling with children. If you are able to travel outside of the school holidays, September is a good month to choose, for affordability.

However, if you are restricted to travelling at peak times, it's a good idea to book well in advance or leave booking until as late as possible. This is because lower prices tend to be available for holidays booked early. Costs are also often reduced for last minute holidays when providers are looking to fill empty spaces.

Use comparison sites

Using comparison sites such as TravelSupermarket, Ice Lolly and Holiday Pirates gives you the opportunity to compare prices for different all-inclusive holidays, from various providers. This helps you to get the best value for money.

Do not accept the first offer

If you have some details of prices for all-inclusive holidays, from the comparison sites, you can use these when haggling with providers. Doing this can help you reduce the costs of an all-inclusive holiday, if you are willing to take the time to haggle with different companies, to get the best deal.

Know what is included in the price

Not every all-inclusive break includes the same items. For instance, the cost may or may not include airport transfers. You need to check what is included in the cost of an all-inclusive holiday, in order to see if you are getting value for money.

One big potential cost that you need to consider is drinks. If you only have access to local beers and wines as part of the all-inclusive deal, you may end up spending a lot on other drinks while you are away.

It's not just cost that you need to consider when you are looking for an all-inclusive break, you also need to find your ideal destination.

Popular all-inclusive destinations from the USA

Greece is a friendly and welcoming country. It's the perfect place to relax and enjoy great weather and warm waters.

  • Maldives

The Maldives is a paradise for many UK holidaymakers. It's also the ideal place to choose an all-inclusive break as catering for yourself can be expensive. Many all-inclusive breaks include activities such as watersports, diving and fishing.

An all-inclusive holiday can be the ideal solution to finding an affordable break. However, you should plan ahead, and be prepared to do some research, if you want to get the best value for your money.
