With around a third of package holidays from the UK being all inclusive holidays*, more and more families are enjoying the benefits.

It can be difficult to balance everyone’s interests on a family holiday, especially if your children are different ages.

Listed below are five of the main benefits of all inclusive holidays for families.

  • Easy to budget

Family trips abroad can be expensive if you don’t know what you’re letting yourself in for. All inclusive holidays let you budget for your break, safe in the knowledge your accommodation, food, drink and possibly activities and excursions are all included in the price.

An all inclusive holiday can prevent overspending and coming back from your trip with a huge credit card bill.

  • Hotel meals

All inclusive holidays are great for family meals. Rather than having to go round lots of different local restaurants to find something you all like, your accommodation will supply meals to suit the whole family.

In addition, if you have young children, you may find it more convenient to eat in the hotel rather than going into the local town and having to transport lots of things like changing bags and buggies.

  • Pre-planned activities

When you book a family holiday on an all inclusive basis, most will come with pre-planned activities for children. Things like kids clubs are great fun and can utilise the range of facilities on offer such as the pool and tennis courts.

If your kids are away for all or part of the day, all inclusive holidays mean they can stop for a drink or snack without having to carry their own money around.

  • Plan your holiday in advance

It’s not just children’s activities that are planned ahead. Your cheap package holiday may also include excursions to local attractions such as water parks and places of historical interest.

This could prevent family arguments on what to do on holiday. If you are going away on excursions, remember to budget for any food and drink you may need while you’re away from your resort or hotel.

All inclusive holidays sometimes have their restrictions, so make sure you ask about what is and isn’t included before you book.

  • Make new friends

All inclusive holidays mean that people tend to stay in and around their hotel or resort more than they perhaps normally would.

As a result, you and your kids will find it easier to make friends on your all inclusive holiday which will make your time away even more enjoyable.
