All-inclusive breaks 'increasingly popular'

Brits are increasingly buying annual travel insurance and taking holidays which are all-inclusive as it helps them to keep track of how much a break could cost them, it has been suggested.

According to findings from Thomson and First Choice, people are focusing more on the value for money they can get from a holiday due to the current climate.

A spokesperson from the travel group said that, over the past five years, the popularity of all-inclusive holidays has risen by 30 per cent which they said "reflects the rising number of consumers who demand to know the cost of their holiday up front and budget accordingly".

Budget-conscious Brits could find it wise to invest in a travel insurance policy, as not having cover could see them forced to spend their carefully-controlled cash on medical treatment should they fall ill.

Figures published by PricewaterhouseCoopers showed that half of the people it polled admitted to taking much more time to plan a holiday than before the recession.
