Everyone needs a vacation sometimes, but booking them can be so stressful. Are there added fees? What happens if the weather doesn’t cooperate? How are you going to get to and from the airport? Do I need to exchange currency? All-Inclusive resorts take away a lot of the stress associated with booking a vacation.
5 Reasons you Should Book an All-Inclusive Vacation:
Most all-inclusive packages include unlimited food and drinks. You can have all the margaritas, mimosas and little fruity drinks without having to worry about keeping an eye on the tab. When I stayed at Sandals Ochi in Jamaica last year, my mini bar was stocked with mixers and Red Stripe, while the room came with three handles of alcohol: gin, rum and vodka. Even if you’re not a heavy drinker, it’s nice to have access to as much Diet Coke as you require to survive.
2. No Need to Uber
Transportation can be one of the most frustrating part of traveling. Can you trust the cabbie? What happens if you get lost? If you stay at an all-inclusive resort, transportation is usually included. In most countries, there will be a shuttle waiting when you arrive. Jamaica even has lounges where visitors can grab a drink and snack and recover before hitting the van.
All-inclusive resorts usually have high security to enter their complexes. Not to mention, their activities and excursions happen every day, so you don’t have to worry about losing your deposit on some fly-by-night scuba instructor or sketchy boat captain.
4. Turn Key Vacation
Have you ever been on a vacation where you’re trying to figure out what to do and by the time you decide you’ve wasted half the day? All-inclusive resorts let you plan your activities before you arrive. Everything can be scheduled and accounted for before you even arrive. This way you don’t waste time planning and get to experience all of your vacation.
5. You Know Exactly How Much to Budget
Vacations can be tough on the budget. When you’re paying for everything separately you can easily miscalculate what you’ll need. With all-inclusive packages, you know how much you’re going to spend going in. You don’t have to add that unexpected cab ride or that one night you decided to order a bottle of wine. Don’t surprises that cause you more worry when you’re trying to get a tan.
