The Benefits of Bundling

We all know about the bundling options available for cable TV, Internet and phone service, but did you know there are similar ways to save money when it comes to traveling?

Package deals and all-inclusive options give frugal travelers the opportunity to get more bang for their buck.  When selecting an all-inclusive travel deal you pay one price up front to cover a range of travel expenses, including airfare, hotel accommodations, ground transportation, plus meals and beverages.

In other cases, you may opt to stay at an all-inclusive resort.  These properties are attractive to budget conscious travelers who are looking to pay a reasonable price for a slew of amenities, such as room, meals, snacks, beverages, taxes, fees, tips, as well as on-site programs and entertainment.

When selecting an all-inclusive vacation deal be sure to read the fine print.  Not all packages feature comprehensive coverage at the lowest price.  Often, you have to pay more if you want luxurious offerings.

In addition all-inclusive deals can be tailored for certain travelers.  For example, if you are looking to take an affordable weekend getaway without the kids, consider staying at an all-inclusive resort designed for couples only, such as Rendezvous St. Lucia.  Honeymooners have a slew of romantic all-inclusive resorts to choose from, including Secrets Resorts, Grand Lido Resorts, El Dorado Royale and Aventura Palace, all of which only accept guests age 18 and older.

For those traveling with family members of all ages, all-inclusive travel deals to major metropolitan areas are very popular.  For instance, a family-friendly deal in New York City could include hotel accommodations, meals, beverages, tickets to Broadway shows and other activities, such as a cruise on the Hudson River or tours of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.  Likewise, if you are traveling to Las Vegas on a budget, consider booking an all-inclusive deal which includes airfare, hotel accommodations, tickets to nightly shows, meals and beverages.
