All covered and care-free

All inclusive


With an all inclusive holiday all your meals, selected drinks and often activities and entertainment are all are included in the cost of your holiday. So, when you arrive there’s no need to worry about currency or credit cards.

All inclusive offerings have evolved over recent years to please even the most discerning palates with a la carte dining and branded alcoholic drinks often included, alongside main restaurant buffet-style selections.

All inclusive holidays for everyone

Solo Travellers

All inclusive holidays tend to be land based, however, we'd also recommend cruising as an option for solo travellers who want the security of knowing that there's no surprises to their bill at the end of the holiday.


Whilst we like to get out and about and sample local food, drink and culture, there are some destinations where all inclusive would be our first choice, not least a destination such as the Maldives.


A popular choice for so many family holidays. There's no need to say 'no' to the old and young alike when you have all your food and drink catered for. Take the worry out of budgeting and plump for all inclusive.


A benefit of all inclusive for group travel is that nobody has to worry about 'their share'! It's a highly cost effective way of enjoying travelling together without the difficult conversation of who owes what.

“With teenagers and children, all inclusive hotels cannot be bettered, Barbados does this so well. The youngsters can get drinks, ice cream and meals to their heart’s content. There are no nasty extras bills at the end of your stay.”
