With so many options available it can be difficult deciding which one is suitable for you and the needs of the people you are travelling with. Here are some great tips to help you choose the right all inclusive package for you.

Go to an all inclusive destination

If you are going to go on an all inclusive holiday then you must make sure that it’s in the right place, there are some areas that are solely focused on all inclusive holidays. You need to check that your destination suits your needs, some locations have very little to do outside of the resort. Decide what you want to do, do you want to venture out a lot? Make sure that you are happy to spend all of your time at the resort if there are little other alternatives. Of course, the idea of this type of holiday is take advantage of the include aspect that you have paid for, but it is always nice to have the freedom to get away for a day or eat outside one night.

Book in advance

If you want to get the best deal possible for an all inclusive holiday then you should start looking six months to a year before you intend to travel. You will be able to find some fantastic last minute deals, but if you’re looking for peace of mind then book in advance. More often than not, the bigger resorts will offer good discounts to those that book their holiday early.

Travel during low season

If you are looking for the best deal available then you should travel to the resorts during the low season. A lot of resorts offer low rates when the weather is not as good or outside of holiday season. If you are going to travel during hurricane season then you should be fully aware of what to expect, you may end up having bad weather but you could also get lucky with some brilliant weather. Try to avoid christmas and new year’s time as well as the summer breaks if you don’t want to be spending a lot of money.

Do your homework


Get online and read reviews about resorts, this will give you an honest opinion of what to expect and what to avoid. You will also be able to look at photos from fellow travellers and not the photo shopped pro photos on the resort’s website. A good place to look is online forums, you can look back at all the discussions that people have had so that you can make an informed decision.
