You’re a hero of holidays: you like to budget wisely, ditch the hassle and get the best value break. That’s why you’re here, looking at the brilliant all-inclusive holiday deals on TravelSupermarket.
All-inclusive holidays are a popular option for savvy spenders. Not only do they allow you to budget for the bulk of your holiday before you even board the plane, but, once you've factored in the cost of extras on a self-catering break - such as food, drink and entertainment - they can actually work out cheaper in many destinations. Last-minute all-inclusive holidays can be a particular bargain. So, get away for less in style on an all-inclusive break.
Never been on an all-inclusive holiday? Want to know what all of the fuss is about? Let’s go:
Price – The initial cost of all-inclusive holidays is usually higher than self-catering or hotel-only breaks. But once the cost of buying food and drink and forking out on entertainment has been factored into your holiday plans, all-inclusive resorts can actually represent excellent value for money. Use the search powers of TravelSupermarket to find a huge range of affordable all-inclusive getaways.
Budgeting – You pay in full up front, which means you can keep the costs down while you’re away. That second cocktail… that extra ice cream… that game of tennis (to work off the ice cream)… relax, it’s already taken care of. All you need to save for in the run up to your break is a little spending money for the airport, transport and souvenirs. This makes all-inclusive family holidays especially easy.
Ideal for families and groups – Get together and make new friends with ease on all-inclusive holidays. The kids can mix with new friends and you can all get together without worrying about an enormous bill. The chances are you'll meet groups of like-minded people too in friendly all-inclusive resorts.
There are all-inclusive holidays for everyone - Whether you are after a bargain-basement all-in holiday in Benidorm or a luxurious five-star spa break in the Maldives, there is an all-inclusive holiday to suit your budget and taste.
All-inclusive breaks are everywhere - You'll find all-inclusive holidays in top destinations worldwide, with family favourites Greece and Spain joining the more established hotspots of Egypt and Turkey in the last few years. And, in countries where the cost of living is high, they are sometimes the only practical and affordable option.
There's so much to do - Whether you enjoy taking part in organised games, watching entertainment in the evenings or getting involved in beach activities, you'll more than likely find that your hotel includes activities for you in the all-inclusive rate. Trying something new without worrying how much it will cost – that’s one way to Travel Super!
Cruises can be all-inclusive too - Many cruise holidays are all-inclusive apart from drinks, so if you fancy sailing away for your next trip without the worry of budgeting for all of the extras that soon add up, this could be the best option for you.
Plus, finding the perfect all-inclusive break at the right price is easy with TravelSupermarket!
Families, couples, groups, singles… all-inclusive holidays suit everyone. Find out if they are your cup of tea (tea included, naturally).
If you are the type of person who gets carried away with spending on meals, drinks and snacks while you are away, an all-inclusive holiday might suit you. Alternatively, you might prefer the convenience of budgeting for the bulk of your trip before you even board the plane. Either way, all-inclusive holidays are a great way for you to cap what you spend while you are on a break.
Families with children who are eager to try all sorts of different activities while they are on holiday will enjoy all-inclusive breaks, as there are often plenty of entertainment options included. Not only will the kids be happy mastering new skills, you won't have to worry about paying for it – or the soft drinks afterwards.
As most of your holiday costs will be paid before you go away, you won't have to worry about exchanging and carrying around lots of foreign currency either.

So why are all-inclusive holiday deals such a popular choice for savvy families? The answer is simple: you get a great choice of food and drink, lots of entertainment, and the little things that quickly add up - such as drinks and activities - are included in the price too.
All-inclusive family holidays are available in destinations all over the globe, from popular European resorts to long-haul destinations.
Turkey, Greece, Spain, the Spanish islands of the Canaries and the Balearics, and Portugal offer the widest choice of all-inclusive hotels and resorts. The Red Sea resorts in Egypt, plus Bulgaria, Malta, Cyprus and Morocco also offer a wide selection of breaks for those looking for something a little different.
For families dreaming of a long-haul getaway, an all-inclusive holiday in the Spanish Caribbean is a cost-effective way to travel, with Cuba and the Dominican Republic offering great family deals as well as the Mexican resorts of the Cancun area. The Cape Verde islands are also perfect for families looking for sun, sea and sand with a difference.
Goa and the Gambia both offer value-led deals for more adventurous families or you could consider splashing the cash and heading to Thailand. Alternatively, fly to the Maldives for a tropical island getaway.
Another all-inclusive holiday idea is a family-friendly cruise. With many catering for children of all ages, it's a great option for keeping control of food and drink costs. And children of all ages will be entertained with a huge range of activities on board to fill the time as well as new ports to visit each day.
How to get a great all-inclusive family holiday deal
1. Check what is included in your all-inclusive package so you can budget for any extra costs accordingly. Keep an eye out for items such as snacks and room service which may catch you out.
2. Do you have to pay for activities? Again, check what is included at your preferred resort before you book. Some activities can cost extra, such as motorised water sports. Children's clubs are usually complimentary, along with some babysitting services, but double check before you book if this is important to you.
3. Spa access is often included in your rate, though treatments usually cost extra. Be sure to budget for that soothing, ache-diminishing massage so you can avoid the headache of an unexpected bill.
4. Tablets, phones, laptops… the kids come with more tech than the adults these days. Make sure wi-fi is free of charge before your clan hooks up to the net.
