Have you ever gone on a vacation in which everything was taken care of? A single payment covered air-fare, hotel amenities, meals and, perhaps, even ground transportation? When you think of all-inclusive vacations, what do you picture? Tropical resorts way out of your price range, right? Nope. Don’t be misled onto the wrong train of thought.

All-Inclusive Vacations

One of the greatest myths in all of travel is that all-inclusive vacations are for those who have lots of extra money. The truth of the matter is, all inclusive vacations, regardless of location, favor the individual or family looking to vacation on a budget. It’s true. If you want to do your own comparison, simply tabulate what it would cost to fly to a desired destination, then figure out room cost, estimate what you would spend on meals daily, and take into account your transportation costs.

Once you have your sum, do a quick online search for an all-inclusive vacation to the same destination. Oh yes, it’ll be cheaper. More than likely they will also boast nicer accommodations than you were able to find by sifting through all the available luxury condos, hotels, and cheap motels in the area. All-inclusive vacations are the way to travel when you’re looking for the best bang for your buck!

All-Inclusive Family Vacations

Let’s not leave the kiddos out of the all-inclusive vacation equation either. If Mickey Mouse is a-callin’, Walt Disneyland and Disney World Resorts offer multi-day vacations that include everything from park-hopper tickets, to accommodations to various meal plans, including park snacks. If you have dreamed of taking a cruise and don’t want to leave the kids at home, Walt Disney Cruise Lines offers the best of the best. They typically include alone time for parents in need of some R&R, while the kids are busy getting a Disney education. These packages can include airfare or can be purchased without.

All-Inclusive Tropical Destinations

Hawaii, Jamaica, Fiji, Cabo San Lucas, Cozumel, Cancun, U.S. Virgin Islands — the list goes on and on. You can find incredible all-inclusive packages to all of these dream-vacation destinations. If you’re looking for a vacation for two, you can find it. Vacation for four? That’s there too! Choose from all-inclusive amenities at four-star and five-star resorts. They will include airfare, two meals daily, and all the snacks and beverages you could possibly need.

Shopping for All-Inclusive Vacations

It’s never a bad idea to run the all-inclusive possibility by a travel agent. It’s especially helpful if you happen to be friends or family with a professional. Regardless, you can find phenomenal deals via websites like the Walt Disney site, or travel sites such as Priceline and Expedia. You can also shop directly from a particular resort in which you might hope to stay. If you have never shopped online for a vacation, there’s no better way to start than by perusing the kinds of deals you can find on all-inclusive packages.
