3 things to know about all-inclusive trips

SPONSORED

Are you considering an all-inclusive resort for your next vacation? It’s a popular way to travel as most everything, from activities to meals, is included. If you are in the midst of planning your trip, here are three tips things to keep in mind:

1. Tips might not be included

Travel experts recommend doing some research so you know if you should tip staff members. While many all-inclusive resorts account for tips in their overall prices, some do not. And some destinations don’t allow their resort employees to accept tips. Find out whether gratuity is already included by checking your booking information or calling the resort to ask about its policy.

2. Plan head for excursions

Looking to enhance your vacation experience with an off-site excursion? Again, do some advanced research. Some resorts include excursions in their all-inclusive packages, while others offer them as paid add-ons. Make sure you know beforehand what tours and experiences are available to explore the destination.

3. Know what you are looking for

Looking for a romantic atmosphere? You’ll likely want to opt for an adults-only resort, which often translates to a more relaxing getaway. Planning to bring the kids? Make sure to look for a family-friendly resort which includes activities, entertainment, kids’ clubs and teen hangouts to keep the younger generation occupied. Are you a foodie by nature? Make sure to assess the restaurant offerings. Many resorts offer guests a number of spots to choose from throughout the day.
