We’ve addressed each of the most important aspects so far in your family holiday plan, but we need to address a HUGE money saver to you now – especially if you’re taking along children. Almost all resorts will offer you an all-inclusive package which can mean big bucks in the saving department!
These packages may just be while you’re at their hotel, or they could include airfare and transfers as well. You’ll have to do your research and find out what is best for you.
An all-inclusive package holiday at a resort will mean that all your meals, drinks, and gratuities are included in the price of your room. So you’ll have a place to stay, a place to eat, and a place to party if you so choose – all for one price! No need to worry about budgeting for dinner or a night out! It’s all included!
With these types of plans, however, you’ll need to get to your destination (if travel in not included) at your own expense for which we refer you to a previous article titled “Getting There”.
However, there are other all-inclusive plans that include airfare, transportation to and from the airport to the hotel (transfers), and then they throw in the meals, drinks, etc. with the price as well. This, we think, would be the best type of all-inclusive to book because then you don’t have to worry about budgeting for anything except for excursions, admission fees, and souvenirs.
All-inclusive holidays are a great way to save money. With an all-inclusive, you know up front what you’re paying for and there are no surprises. When you go someplace else, everything adds up.
There can be drawbacks, however. One of these is that they may only offer a flight out of Gatwick and you live in five minutes from Heathrow. You’ll have to get to Gatwick to catch your flight, but you will probably still realize some huge savings in the long run.
