So, you’ve finally decided to take that dream vacation, you sit down in front of the computer to fiddle with the numbers: the airfare, hotel accommodations, the cost of food, entertainment, drinks, all while trying to please everyone in your group, and most importantly stay on budget. Of course, the ever-changing travel world doesn’t help make it any easier. But within the travel industry, a consistent and alluring option arises: the all-inclusive vacation. A couple of clicks later, you and your group are ready to go, with all but one worry, what to pack?

What to pack for an all-inclusive vacation

The ever-practical vacation packages have been in high demand and constantly evolving since their introduction as French Club Med resorts in 1950 by Gerard Blitz. The All-Inclusive idea has since become very popular in warmer climates such as Mexico and the Caribbean. The formula is simple: give the traveler peace of mind by helping to make the planning element as hassle-free as the vacation itself. The idea of presenting all costs upfront would ease any budget restraints and deliver a true sense of vacation bliss while never having to flinch when the check arrives. For this reason, inclusive vacations have been around for so long becoming the favorite of families, romantic couples, and most recently, millennial buddies looking for adventures.

What Exactly is an All-Inclusive Resort, and What Does it Offer?

The base formula of this concept is the same at most resorts; it includes the main essentials associated with any vacation (accommodation, meals, snacks, and drinks) presented with a set price per person, per day. Most hotels enhance their base package to include enticing add-ons, like water activities, off-property tours, alcoholic beverages, transportation, yoga, cooking classes, and even child care. With such an array of activities and exciting culinary options, there is no need to ever leave the resort. To fully lock in your peace of mind, don’t forget to confirm what your plan includes: tips? Premium alcohol? Activities? It is best to know before you book.

Why is an All-Inclusive Vacation a Good Idea?

Stress-Free Budget – One of the top reasons people book all-inclusive vacations is, of course, removing the stress of added expenses, those that tend to pile up while you sunbathe carefreely. Having all expenses paid for in advance makes total sense and will keep you on budget and in your zen mode.  

Easy to plan – Another great benefit of booking an all-inclusive vacation is it makes the planning so much smoother, with each member envisioning a vacation plan of their own, an all-inclusive resort removes any disagreements by offering something for everyone from food to entertainment. Keeping everyone in your group happy will give you that perfect balance of quality group time and relaxed alone time.

Attainable Luxury – A growing number of luxury resorts are now offering all-inclusive plans to choose from, making lavish vacations attainable experiences without breaking the bank.
