Get The Most Out Of Your All-Inclusive Stay With These Tips

By Shandley McMurray


Do your research before booking accommodation to ensure the resort meets your expectations for an ideal holiday. Scour online reviews and hotel websites beforehand.
Also, see if the package you're looking for covers all meals and activities. Some resorts sneak in hidden fees for things like premium liquor, certain restaurants, and activities.
The sooner you secure your all-inclusive resort, the better. Travel experts at Living With The Magic Vacations say, "Booking as early as possible secures the best prices."
Another cost-saving tip is to stay in the fall. Palm Beach Travel president Annie Davis says tourists "can see rates as low as 35% off" during September and early October.
Loyalty Program
Joining a resort's complimentary loyalty program can earn you several perks, such as discounted room rates, upgraded accommodations, and free spa treatments.
It's best to familiarize yourself with an area's weather ahead of a trip. You can reduce the risk of being caught in a major storm by traveling during a safer time of year.
You likely won't get into your resort room on arrival, so you'll have to occupy yourself until then. Pack your swimsuit in your carry-on so you can take a dip in the pool.
