1. It’s Easy to Stay on Budget
Calculating how much a family vacation will cost can be difficult. Upfront costs, including flights, hotel stays and transportation to and from the airport, are typically straightforward. But once you’ve arrived, it’s easy to spend more than expected on dining and entertainment. With an all-inclusive beach vacation, however, almost everything is an upfront cost, making it easier to keep your spending to what you set aside for the trip.
2. Even Tips are Typically Included
With cruises and guided land tours you know what you’re spending upfront on the bulk of your trip. But tips, which might not seem like a lot, can add up over the course of your trip, and usually are not included on cruises or guided tours. At most all-inclusive beach vacation resorts, however, tips are included in your daily price. No cash necessary unless you’re looking for an off-resort experience, and no added fees at the end of the week.
3. You Can Indulge Without the Guilt
Dessert tonight? An extra frozen drink by the pool tomorrow? During an all-inclusive beach vacation at a resort, all of your meals and drinks are part of the package, so you can say yes to both without worrying about being overindulgent (as far as your wallet is concerned, that is).
