Brits 'stay on site' on all-inclusive holidays

Many travelling Brits stick to the "British attitude" of getting value for money when going on an all-inclusive holiday, according to an industry expert.
Bob Atkinson, a travel expert for moneysupermarket.com believes that all-inclusive holidaymakers fail to leave the confines of the room they are staying in because there is no need for them to do so.
"If you have got all your food you do not need to go out and get food, if you have got a bar you do not need to go out and have drinks," he added.
"You have got a deal; you do not need to spend anymore money."
Illnesses and injury can occur on holiday within the room, so all-inclusive travellers are still encouraged to take out travel insurance to cover themselves in case a problem arises.
Research reported last month from Halifax found that all-inclusive breaks account for 33 per cent of holidays.
