What Is Or Isn't Included In All Inclusive Vacations?

Oct 19, 2007
When you go online or to a travel agency and they talk about "all inclusive vacations", they don't mean you experience everything a human being can possibly experience during your trip. It also does not mean that every single expense in your vacation is covered. But all of the major expenses in a vacation are covered.

What Is Included

Usually in all inclusive vacation packages, your plane ride, lodging, entertainment and most of your meals are included. The nitty-gritty details vary from travel agency, travel booking website or luxury hotel. The most common all inclusive vacation package are for cruises. There, even tips and beverages are included in your price tag. It's not as if you can do a lot of comparison shopping once the boat casts off.

Another common all inclusive vacation package is that of the beach-side hotel. This often includes tips, some beverages and car rental, as well as the plane ticket and lodging. The hotel will often hold entertainment or activities for their guests at no additional charge, should you choose to commingle with other loud, sweaty drinking human beings. You also have the option of staying in the luxurious comfy room you don't have to clean.

Check To See What isn't Included

There is no such thing as a stupid question when it comes to finding out what isn't included in your all inclusive vacation package. They won't buy your luggage, for example. On a more serious note, see if there is a shuttle service from the airport to your hotel, or do you have to pay for cabs to get around town? You should bring some cash with you, exchanged already where applicable, in case of medical emergencies.

You might also see if there are any special deals depending on your traveling situation. There are all inclusive vacation packages tailored for families, single adults or golf players. All inclusive vacations can last from three days to three weeks, so be sure to find out how long the vacation is for and how late you can book without incurring a penalty.

Before paying for any all inclusive vacation package, be sure you know if and what the refund policy is. See how late you can cancel and still get your money back. Some places will make you pay a penalty if you have to cancel less than a week before your planned trip.

So, go ahead and check out all inclusive vacation packages; and keep your brain on hold during your vacation.
