Planning a vacation can be hard, especially when considering options for locations and lodging. It’s often tempting to go with the more cost-effective options so that you get the most bang for your buck. But when it comes to vacations geared towards rest and relaxation, it might be better to choose an option that may be a little pricier if everything is included for you. Instead of finding travel arrangements, lodging, food, activities and more separately, all-inclusive deals often bundle these together making your booking process a one stop shop. Read on to learn some of the reasons why you should consider going all-inclusive next time you travel.

Less Stress

When booking an all-inclusive vacation package, you save yourself from a lot of the stress that comes with doing the initial planning of the trip. Popular booking sites often offer a filter when browsing that will match you with all-inclusive packages for destinations and time frames of your choosing. These sites will help you match your airline tickets, transportation to the resort, and lodging. As a standard, resorts or hotels that offer all-inclusive options are geared towards this type of experience and are experts on accomplishing the planning for you.

We really do mean ALL inclusive

Aside from removing some of the stresses of booking an all-inclusive vacation, there is a lot that these resorts offer. Some of the amenities that are included at all-inclusive resorts include all meals and drinks, activities (although for certain activities there may be a small added fee), day camps for children, pool parties, fitness classes or fitness centers, possible shopping opportunities, nightly turndown service for your room and more. If you’re looking to feel luxurious while catching up on some much-needed rest and relaxation, this is a great option for you.


Although it may seem like you're paying more than you usually would for your getaway, choosing to go all-inclusive may actually help you save a few dollars. The grand total price that you see on your receipt when booking this way can look a little scary. But, if you take a moment to think about how your money will actually be spent, it may put you at ease. With all-inclusive vacations you essentially pay one lump sum for the cost of your trip. On the other hand, when you book each portion of your trip on your own and add up the costs it may come out to a similar amount. If you also take into consideration the included food and sometimes alcohol, plus the transportation costs you save by not needing to leave the resort, it is possible that the trip will cost less.


When you go all-inclusive, there’s really no need to leave the resort. You have everything you need within walking distance from the pool to the beach to your dinner reservation. These resorts are often closed in with designated entrances and exits. This adds a wonderful layer of protection and safety to the guests staying at the resort. Without the opportunity for people to wander in and out of the property you will be able to feel safe while you stay.

Making friends

It will be easy for you to get to know the staff and other guests when you go all-inclusive. Since the properties are usually closed in you will be seeing the same people at breakfast, the pool, and maybe even dinner. This is great if you love to socialize while on vacation. There may be people from different states or even different countries for you to get to know. you may even find yourself booking activities and dinner reservations for your family and the family you met at the pool on your first day!

There’s an option for everyone

Even within the all-inclusive vacation type there are many options. You can choose from the most luxury of options to a romantic getaway where no children are allowed, to a family-oriented option where the activities offered are geared towards your kids. Choosing one may be difficult, but the rest of the planning won’t be!

No matter what your reason is for choosing an all-inclusive vacation, we’re sure you'll enjoy it and find it quite relaxing. Any time you travel, consider purchasing travel protection. To learn more, visit our website today, or talk to your travel advisor. Happy travels!
