All-inclusive vacations have become a popular choice for families as a

 

Packaged vacations offer the convenience of including air fare, airport transfers, activities, hotel, food and beverages for one price.  See Booking On-line.

Parents appreciate the variety of entertainment offered for various age groups and interests that can be enjoyed as a family, in groups with peers and individually.  Many resorts provide an opportunity to participate in numerous sports and run supervised children's activities that allow parents some relaxing time.   

Facilities and activities vary from Resort to Resort and we offer some tips for planning and enjoying your family's All-inclusive Vacation experience.

For more travel tips see PARENT TRAVEL TIPS

WHAT'S INCLUDED

Many people assume that when a packaged vacation is advertised as "All-inclusive" everything is included.  In actuality what is "included" varies from Resort to Resort.   

Some things to consider when planning an all-inclusive vacation include:

  • Get details of what is included - are departure taxes extra.  Is there a membership fee - Club Med requires a yearly annual membership fee.

  • Are all meals included.  Some packages are just for breakfast and dinner, while others include lunch.  Snacks may or may not be included as well - see dining tips

  • Are all beverages included.  Resorts may include all non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages all day long.  Other beverage options may include only non-alcoholic beverages, wine and beer only or included with dinner, cocktails and other beverages may be available at an extra charge - see money saving and dining tips.

  • Many resorts do not offer room service or charge extra for it.

  • Cribs and Cots may be extra.

  • Are all on-site activities included.  Beachfront resorts may only include non-motorized water activities.  Ski Resorts may/may not include other activities like tubing and skating on a limited or unlimited basis.

  • Is tipping extra.

  • Some sports may have a nominal charge for the use of equipment, like tennis rackets.

  • Ski resorts charge extra for rental equipment, but packages usually included unlimited lift ticket privileges.

  • Are advertised off-site activities included.  Are other excursions available at a charge.

  • Is a car rental included.

  • Is evening entertainment included or are optional evening activities offered and the cost involved. 

  • Children's programs are usually included, however some resorts charge for evening programs.

  • Ensure that Children's programs are age appropriate and available for your children.

  • Babysitting and nannies are usually an extra charge.

  • Spa services may not be included.

  • Restaurants may have special dinners available at an additional surcharge.

MONEY SAVING TIPS

There are many factors affecting the pricing of all-inclusive packages.   Here are some money-saving tips to consider:

  • Shop around, compare prices, location and what is included.  

  • Special Discounts are available through some on-line booking sites.  See On-line Booking for great links.

  • Check for "Kids Free" programs.  Some packages include Kids eat, stay and even fly free periods.

  • Children under 2 years of age are usually free in the same room and fly free if seated on adult's lap.  See Air Safety News about the recommendations for booking a seat and using a car seat on planes.  There may be a charge for participating in children's programming.

  • Schedule the vacation at non-peak times.  Christmas and School Breaks are traditional more expensive times to travel, as well as being busier.

  • Weekday departures may be less expensive.

  • If travelling as a single adult, look for packages that do not charge or have a reduced single supplement or go with a friend.

  • Packages that offer limited alcoholic beverages can be a great value for families, especially if teenagers are being charged full fare or if the adults are light drinkers.  

  • Avoiding gift shops is a great way to save money while on holiday.  Look for discount t-shirt shops for souvenirs instead of trinkets.

  • Find out what activities and excursions are extra and the cost - budget accordingly.  Golfing fees and equipment are usually not included.  Court fees for tennis and squash may be included but there may be a fee for using resort rackets.

  • Connecting rooms may be an extra charge.

  • Opt for standard accommodations.  Hopefully you won't be spending too much time in the room and luxury accommodations add considerably to the cost.

WHAT TO PACK

Depending on when and where you are going will affect your packing.   

For ski vacations go to Winter Holidays - Ski Vacations for packing tips.  If your destination is a beach or summer resort, these guidelines may make the job of packing and unpacking a little easier:

  • Try not to take too much.  Limit luggage to one  suitcase and one carry-on per person and with young children you can sometime double up if the suitcase is large enough. Visit Lands' End Luggage.

  • If diapers are necessary, find out if they are available at your destination.  Some resorts do carry diapers although the cost may be higher than normal.  

  • Most beach and summer resorts have towels available for guests to use.  This is a great space saver.

  • Limit shoes to three pairs - wear one pair and pack two. Suggested footwear - running shoes, beach sandals and one dress pair.  

  • Shorts and t-shirts are a must for kids.  Two bathing suits are a good idea. 

  • One or two evening outfits as well as one pair of pants will usually suffice for a beach vacation.

  • For more tips on what to pack see Air Travel Tips, Travel Games and First Aid Tips.

  • Also See Packing for a Winter/Ski Vacation and Packing for a Dude Ranch Vacation.

President's Tip:  I like to pack a week before a vacation if possible.  First I pile up everything I would like to take and then take one third away.  Two days before the vacation I remove another third.  I usually still end up taking too much but this method works well for our family.  - Maureen Hall

SAFETY TIPS

Click here to return to list Click here to return to specific tips list

ENJOYING YOUR VACATION

Well, your bags are packed and your family is ready to go.  Have a great holiday, relax and enjoy.  Remember getting there can be half the fun.

Participate in the Welcome or Manager's Party to learn more about the resort and its facilities.  This gives you an opportunity to plan your week and any off-site excursions your family may be interested in.

Keeping kids fed and well-rested goes a long way to keeping the whole family happy.   If you are travelling with young children a "family nap" during the hottest part of the day is a great idea.  Everyone will have a chance to rest and be refreshed for the evening ahead.

DINING

Buffets are a common dining experience when travelling to an all-inclusive resort.  A great variety of appetites can be satisfied with varied choices and ample supply of food.  For some variety we suggest:

  • Look for a resort that has more than one restaurant or themed nightly meals.  

  • Many resorts also offer "Adult Only" restaurants (additional charges may apply) for a romantic dinner for two.  Take advantage of "Kids' Night Out" entertainment programs or consider hiring a babysitter for an evening.

  • Budget for and enjoy an evening meal at a local or nearby resort restaurant for a change of pace.

  • See Tips for Eating Out and Dining with Children

CHILDREN'S PROGRAMS

Most family oriented All-inclusive resorts offer supervised and organized programs and activities for children.    If you plan on using these facilities while on vacation, ponder these tips:

  • See Kids Clubs Safety Tips

  • See Travelling with Teenagers

  • If your child or children are too young for supervised activities or uncomfortable in large group settings, consider hiring a resort nanny or babysitter for some quiet time or an evening out.

  • Look for age appropriate children's clubs and activities.  The majority of children's programs are designed for children 4 to 12 years of age.  A few resorts offer programs for children 2 and up.  Fewer still have facilities for children under two.  Selected Club Med Resorts have programs for infants 4 months and up.  Some Resorts also offer activities for teens.

  • Don't "Dump the Kids".  Plan for some family time  activities, especially at the beach or pool during the day and evenings.
