The all-inclusive holiday has been revived as travellers try to keep to a tight budget. Going all-inclusive has become hugely popular due to the recession, as holiday makers keep the holiday spending to a minimum.
Now First Choice, one of the UK’s largest travel operators, has announced it will be embracing this trend and making all of its holidays all-inclusive from 2012. This leaves travellers to pay for their holiday and need little in the way of spending money when actually abroad. Everything from flights, to food and drink – including alcoholic beverages – are included
Johan Lundgren, the UK and Ireland managing director of First Choice’s parent company Tui said: ‘All-inclusive is becoming the holiday of choice for many British consumers, offering them great value for money, yet there is no mainstream holiday company currently offering a completely all-inclusive portfolio’.
He continued: ‘People can leave their wallets at home and relax – they won’t have to worry about spending money when they’re abroad’.
Promising to continue to offer highly competitive prices, First Choice have said families can expect to save around £500 by going all-inclusive rather than just bed and breakfast.
Growth in the all-inclusive market has been huge, rising 32 per cent in the last five years, which has lead to this change.
All-inclusive deals currently being offered on the First Choice website for travel in April include seven nights in the Algarve from £264 and four nights in Cyprus from £323.
