What Does All-Inclusive Mean
You may be thinking of taking a beach vacation this holiday season or over the winter. If you live in a northern climate like I do, you may be wishing to take a beach vacation – or vacations – this holiday season AND winter. If so, an all-inclusive vacation may be just what you’re looking for.
Even if you haven’t booked something yet, you can still find last minute all-inclusive vacations. Enter the search terms, “last minute all-inclusive vacations” and a multitude of responses come up.
Why take an all-inclusive vacation rather than arranging everything separately? To best explain that, I’ll define all-inclusive. At a minimum, an all-inclusive vacation includes the price of your lodging, food, soft drinks, taxes, and gratuities. But, there’s a lot more that can be included in an all-inclusive vacation package.
Things that may or may not be included in the price of an all-inclusive vacation include:
- Alcoholic beverages; sometimes premium, sometimes not
- Premium coffee
- Premium food
- Bottled water
- Activities; sometimes all activities available at the resort, sometimes only some
People like to book all-inclusive vacation packages because it’s usually easier for them to estimate the total cost of their vacation before they go. But, as you can see from the above list, it’s still important to carefully check what is and isn’t included because costs can add up quickly if the things you really want on your getaway aren’t included in the all-inclusive rate.
Best All-Inclusive Vacations
The best all-inclusive vacation is the one that best meets your needs. Are you traveling as a family? If so, look for resorts that specialize in all-inclusive family vacations. Are you on a tight budget? Then check out cheap all-inclusive vacations, all-inclusive vacation deals, or all-inclusive vacations with airfare.
Not every all-inclusive vacation package is for beach resorts. If you want a beach vacation, look for all-inclusive beach vacations, all-inclusive Caribbean vacations, or all-inclusive Mexican vacations.
Apple Vacations offers many all-inclusive vacations from a variety of cities to a variety of destinations including the Caribbean, Mexico, the Bahamas, Hawaii, Central and South America, and ski resorts worldwide.
To many joyful beach experiences!
