Holidaymakers looking for inclusive deals

More and more people are looking into all-inclusive holidays to make sure that they know exactly how much they will be spending while away.
That is according to holiday insurance comparison site Travelsupermarket.com, which added that all-inclusive holidays protect people from the uncertainty of fluctuating foreign exchange rates.
Kayte Williams, holidays channel manager at the firm, explained that the popularity of all-inclusive has risen this year because it "helps people plan".
"They know essentially what the cost of the holiday is upfront, and they can then take a holiday and know what money they need," she added.
Although holiday insurance is often offered as part of package deals, travellers should be aware that they are not obliged to buy their policy from a travel company, and can instead choose to shop with an insurance specialist.
Recently, a report by TUI Travel indicated that 87 per cent of people still expect to travel overseas this summer, the same number as last year, with a staggering 94 per cent of those considering a package deal.
