Report: All-inclusive holidays are more expensive

Falling euro and competitiveness between bars push down prices

More than 50% of all-inclusive holidays bought at euro-country destinations from outside the euro are more expensive than accommodation and food bought separately, according to research published in the UK newspaper the Sunday Times. The report will come as a surprise to the increasing numbers of families and couples booking all-inclusive breaks because they think they are saving money.
In fact, the falling value of the euro combined with increased competitiveness from local bars and restaurants means that better value can be found outside all-inclusive resorts.
Many complaints have been made by vacationers angry to find additional charges at resorts for mineral water. Others are disappointed by the lack of recognisable drinks brands included in “all-inclusive” plans.
