By choosing an all-inclusive holiday, you won’t blow your hard earned money on lunching and dining at expensive restaurants. Instead, you can use this on much more fun adventurous activities such as going to water parks, jet skiing, sky diving & more.

Know your Jargon

Chances are if you are looking for an all-inclusive holiday, you will come across the jargon that is used very frequently; half board and full board.

A half board stay will provide you with accommodation, breakfast and one main meal for the day.  A full board stay will include your accommodation and all meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner).

Choose the underdogs; they’re usually a lot cheaper

If you choose an underdog travel booking site, you’ll have more chances of finding the cheapest deal. Websites like alpharooms.com lists a range of all-inclusive cheap travel deals.  You can opt to pay for your holiday bit by bit in instalments. Your final bill will be due a few weeks before you fly out for your holiday.
