What are the Benefits of an All-Inclusive Vacation to Jamaica?

12If you are planning your vacation to Jamaica you need to create a budget for five main things: travel (including airport transfers), accommodation, meals, activities and souvenirs. The travel and accommodation should be easy to budget for as these will bet set out in the travel agents pricing, or the hotel’s website. Extras for airport transfers and optional features at the hotel however may require a credit card onto which an initially indeterminable amount will be charged later. Once you get to your destination, you will then need to local restaurants and activities that fall within your assigned budget, and probably end up using far more than you’d anticipated which will eat up the assigned non-essential souvenir shopping budget.

The best way around this is to choose an all-inclusive vacation. This will make your trip to Jamaica much more relaxed as all essential components of the holiday will be already paid for before you get there, so all you need financially is “pocket money” to spend on postcards and local craft souvenirs.

Before making your reservation however, make sure you check what is included in the all-inclusive price. Does this include transfers? What about gratuities? Are drinks included when you need them or only at meal-times? What about alcoholic beverages? Is equipment and tuition included for activities? Or is it just the activities themselves? Are there any hidden costs at the hotel or is it really all-inclusive so that if you turned up there with no money at all, you’d not have a problem? If there are a number of hotels offering all-inclusive deals in the area of Jamaica that you plan on visiting, see how they compare with each other for what they offer in return for what they charge before you make your reservation.

If you are budget minded, or if your vacation has to fall within a certain price bracket, then all-inclusive is a great way of taking the financial stress out of your holiday. Reserve it, pay for it, and then turn up and enjoy it without worrying about what’s being charged to your credit card!
