|When choosing your holiday hotels, careful planning and
aforethought can save you a lot of money on the total package for the
getaway by reducing costs on local ground transport and value priced
dining options. Some hotels will offer generous meal plans at a nominal
fee, thus keeping your hard earned money in your wallet where it belongs.
The all-inclusive holiday hotel plan makes for tremendous savings when traveling in a group or family situation. Most all-inclusive plans will cover the cost of meals with buffet dining and vouchers for the ala carte menu restaurants. In addition, beverages to include alcohol are provided and special meal tickets for children. If you are traveling without a full board option, be prepared to shell out a hefty sum for dinners, as they can be triple the cost per person of the breakfast buffet option. The cost of dining for a family of four can exceed the price of the hotel room, but with a little wise planning, you can get three hearty meals a day for little more than the room charge.
In addition to the savings on food, the all-inclusive holiday hotel provides a myriad of attractions and sporting activities. For hotel properties located on a beach, expect all your water sports to be included, with the exception of motorized equipment rentals such as a jet ski and power boat. Snorkeling, wind surfing, kayaking, kite surfing and wakeboarding are standard features at the all-inclusive hotel, making this type of accommodation the most well-rounded and thrifty.
Entertainment is also provided free of charge to include local folk music,
dancing, and live stage performances. For those traveling with children,
you will find child minding services and special activity camps for
children and teens.
