An increasing number of tourists are opting for all-inclusive holidays in a bid to save money, according to TUI Travel
An increasing number of tourists are opting for all-inclusive holidays in a bid to save cash, according to new figures released by TUI Travel.
The international leisure travel group, which owns Thomson and First Choice, said that 46% of its sales so far this year were accounted for by tourists choosing packages that include meals.
Last year they accounted for 44% of the group's sales.
It is believed that holidaymakers can achieve better value on packages that include meals.
Tourists should also make sure they have taken out a good
travel insurance policy before jetting off.
Although Britons booked 2% fewer summer holidays since May, the group said the performance was "particularly pleasing" due to the poor consumer sentiment.
The growing demand for all-inclusive deals led to a 4% rise in the average selling price.
TUI posted a 13% rise in its overall sales to £3.8 billion during the quarter ended June 30, while its underlying profits stood at £88 million, up 57%.
In 2010, the figures were lower as the Icelandic ash cloud crisis had led to the disruption of flights, affecting people's travel plans.
