When it comes to holiday vacations, an all-inclusive holiday package is a favourite among travel enthusiasts. If you are planning a holiday out of town for the first time, this should be something to check out. At first glance, it seems a bit complicated. But once you get the hang of it, you will realise why it is such a popular deal. To help you get started, here is a brief guide to help you out.
Bundle airfare and hotel
Find all-inclusive holiday deals that include airfare. This should be a bit more affordable and convenient. However, if you can’t find any or if the deal you want does not include airfare, you could still try to bundle your flight booking with your hotel. You may get hotel room discounts by doing so!
Book as a group
Sure, there will be family members and friends who wish to pay separately but convince them to book along with you as a group. Only one of you should discuss with the travel agent to avoid confusion. Make sure everyone’s full names, birth dates, and credit card info are on hand while speaking with the travel agent. Not only will this make it convenient for everyone, it would also be easier for the agent.
Specify the accommodations you want
When picking a hotel or resort for your holiday getaway, make sure to be very specific with the set up you want. Find an online booking website that offers personalised services to travellers. Say, you have kids travelling with you. Let the agent know that you want a resort that has many facilities and activities that kids will enjoy.
If you are travelling on a holiday, book early. If you do it too late, you could run out of good deals. Doing it early gives you a chance to choose the best package and get a good flight schedule.
Research before your trip
It helps to know where you are going and what activities are available for you to join when you get to your destination. If you have specific needs, for example if you have allergies or you are handicapped, check to see if the hotel would be able to accommodate to your needs. Make your online searches specific, like “hotel facilities for handicapped guests” or “Italian food that contain nuts” if you have a nut allergy.
Make dinner reservations
Most high-end resorts and hotels do not have buffet style meals so make sure to make a reservation before it gets fully booked. If they allow you to take the food to-go why not take your partner or your family on a picnic?
These are just some essential things you should know as a newbie traveller going on an all-inclusive vacation. Try and find family and friends who have vacationed all-inclusive before and ask them for any tips. Experience generates the best advice, after all!
