1) You want to relax
The first thing you need to ask yourself when considering whether to go all inclusive is: what type of holiday do I want? If your idea of heaven is unwinding by the pool with a cocktail in your hand then all inclusive is a great option; it also means you won’t have to stray far when you get hungry, as your hotel’s restaurants will be included in your package.
2) Location, location, location
Another factor when considering whether to go all inclusive is location. If you’re travelling to an affordable area – for example, Bali – where food and drink is cheaply priced, then opting for bed and breakfast might be more cost effective than going all inclusive. However, if you’re staying in a hotel that boasts plenty of on-site facilities, such as restaurants, watersports and a kids club, then all inclusive will prove very cost effective.
3) Value for money
The most common reason why people go all inclusive is the value for money; with food, drinks and snacks all included, it can be a great way of making your holiday more affordable, especially if you’re travelling as a family. And if you’re the type who loves a good cocktail, you’ll be able to relax knowing that everything has been paid for up front – including that mojito.
4) Family fun
As we mentioned, all inclusive is a great option for families. Kids will be able to enjoy as many ice creams as they like, not to mention making the most of the facilities your hotel has to offer, whether that’s a waterpark or dedicated kids club.
5) No hidden extras
When you opt for an all inclusive holiday, you’ll find it much easier to stick to a budget. By paying for everything up front, you won’t have to worry about counting pennies or what the bill will be at the end of your stay; you can just sit back and relax.
6) Try new things
Going all inclusive allows you to make full use of your hotel, and try things you might otherwise not have, such as an exotic type of cuisine, tennis or even scuba diving. Plus, if you’re travelling with kids, they’ll be able to experience new and exciting things, all without the risk of you wasting money.
7) Affordable luxury
After experiencing an all inclusive holiday, many people fall in love with the level of luxury it provides. Often, all inclusive customers receive an extra level of service, with many hotels offering poolside service, allowing you to sit back and relax as you drinks are delivered to you.
