All-inclusive holidays 'offer best chance of budgeting'

All-inclusive holidays are as popular as they are because they allow a holidaymaker the greatest chance of budgeting for their break, according to the Association of British Travel Agents.
Frances Tuke, a spokeswoman for the firm, said that all-inclusive holidays have grown by an estimated 25 per cent in the last five years, despite not always providing a traveller with the cheapest holiday quote.
She added that a possible reason for this rise in the number of all-inclusive holidays being bought could be that "you know exactly what you are paying for and all your essentials are covered in the upfront price".
She also stated that going all-inclusive could be a cheap way of visiting a destination such as the Caribbean because of the benefits this type of holiday provides.
Although travellers should beware that travel insurance is not always factored into the price of an all-inclusive holiday.
An industry expert from moneysupermarket.com recently stated that British holidaymakers follow the "British attitude" of getting value for money when going on an all-inclusive holiday, thus not experiencing the surrounding area because everything they need is right on their doorstep.
