In these times of money worries, the all-inclusive hotel is the perfect solution to
spending money worries. Your food is included, soft drinks are included, and
many alcoholic drinks are included. What else do you need to worry about?!
If you have kids, an all-inclusive holiday is the perfect antidote to those endless
requests for soft drinks, and your little darlings can have as many helpings of
pudding as you allow, all without worrying about the cost.
Obviously, the price of your holiday will be slightly higher at booking, but there
are some serious bargains to be had on this kind of holiday. I found a real bargain
during the October half term holiday recently, which would be ideal for those
with kids. The cost of eating out during holidays can be high, not to mention the
time spent walking around trying to find somewhere that suits everyone, but
with the all-inclusive option, this is already taken care of. Of course, nothing is
stopping you from heading out for a couple of nights to a nearby restaurant if
you fancy a change, but the choice is entirely yours.
All-inclusive eradicates the worry of where to eat, so to continue in that vein why
not start the whole holiday with the same mind-set? Airport hotels are the
perfect solution to travel day stress, especially when you’re faced with the reality
of having to get up at 2am in order to get to the airport on time for check-in. I’m a big fan of the Sofitel at Gatwick Airport, it’s such an amazing start to a holiday, I can’t speak highly enough!
Staying overnight at the airport means you’re where you need to be already, and
all you need to do is chill-out and wait. Maybe you fancy a few cocktails in the
hotel bar, a nice meal in the restaurant, room service maybe, or just a film and
an early night; whatever your choice, it’s all available at a fantastic price. I’ve
stayed at a few of the Luton Airport hotels from Holiday Extras, and really enjoyed the relaxation
element, and the peace of mind in knowing I didn’t have to go too far to check
in. The price was also a definite plus!
Once you arrive at your all-inclusive hotel, you’ll probably find the facilities are
more than your average self-catering hotel or apartment, as they tend to expect
you to stay within the four walls. However, I’d recommend not staying there all
the time, and simply use it as a base for eating, sleeping, a few drinks and
maybe a day or two around the pool. The danger with an all-inclusive holiday is
that you become ensconced within the hotel and never get out and explore your
destination! Make sure you experience the best of both worlds, and you’ll gain
much more out of your time, and save money too.
When your holiday is all in from the start, it’s a sure fire winner.
