Just for the sheer simplicity of it all, an all inclusive vacation can be a wonderful choice, especially when you are planning a romantic trip.
Which of the following scenarios sound better for your romantic vacation?
You plan a trip to an exotic destination with your significant other. You step off the plane and immediately find you have to pay twice as much for a taxi as you were expecting. You arrive at your hotel and sit down for a drink at the bar. You gaze lovingly into your partner’s eyes, take a deep breath and RELAX…you’re on vacation. And then the check comes and you realize just how much drinks are going to cost, and the food, and your entertainment and excursions. So you spend the rest of your romantic trip wondering how long it will take you to pay off the credit cards after your “relaxing” vacation.
Or you can choose an all inclusive vacation. On this romantic getaway, you know in advance exactly what the costs will be. In fact, you’ve known for a couple of months, and you’ve already got the entire budget worked out. There are no surprises when the bill comes, because, in fact, the bill never comes! It was already taken care of.
Knowing exactly how much you’ll spend on your romantic vacation is the biggest advantage of an all inclusive vacation, according to many travellers.
Since most all inclusive hotels are at ocean-front resorts, it is also nice to know that you can spend the day at the beach or on a jet ski without worrying about where to keep your money or credit cards. Do you want a tropical drink or a poolside snack? It’s usually available at an all inclusive resort without a need to sign your check or figure a tip.
