The all-inclusive resort, where throngs of tourists convene to enjoy all the food, drink and sunshine they can handle. As wonderful as it sounds, there are a few things you should know before rushing to book that really cheap vacation package. To help you understand all-inclusive resorts, here are 6 things you should know about them.
6. All-Inclusive Doesn’t Always Include Everything
Back in the day when Club Med first introduced all-inclusive, they truly meant that everything was included, but as more resorts and even cruise ships got on board it became less “all” inclusive. Nowadays a lot of resorts charge extra for many amenities including top-shelf liquors, airport transfers, motorized water activities, and spa treatments. It seems that the more premium the perk, the more likely you will pay extra for it. Things such as off-site excursions can run up a large tab and don’t be surprised when you are asked to pay for things you once assumed were included. The good news, most everywhere includes all food and drinks, accommodations and normal amenities meaning you can still pay one price, as long as you stay within those parameters.
