As a family, we try to make it a point to go on a vacation once a year. My wife and I usually take the time and plan out every part of our trip, from the car we rent to the places we will go and see, but last year we tried one of those all inclusive vacation deals and it really made things a lot simpler.
The first one we tried involved a major theme park. We were going to fly to our destination, spend about week visiting the park and other local attractions, and then fly back home. I had been really busy right up to about the time that we were set to leave, so I had not had the opportunity to make any sort of travel plans of my own.
When I realized that the trip was less than a month away, and I really had no idea what we would be doing or where we would be staying, I looked into some all inclusive vacation deals to see what I could find that would satisfy my wife and children and not break the bank at the same time.
I found some deals that were definitely costlier than if I would have put together a travel plan of my own, but would certainly not be devastating to my pocketbook. I chose one, made the purchase, and in a few weeks we were on our way.
One of the great things that I soon discovered about all inclusive vacation deals was that literally everything was taken care of, from the car rental, to the hotel, to the tickets to the park, and I mean everything else one could think of. I really did not have to do anything on my own except drive, and relax and enjoy our vacation.
A few years later, my wife and I were looking into all inclusive vacation deals and found one that was a cruise for our anniversary. It was really nice to be able to have a romantic get-away and not have to really do all of the preparation for it, and most important, my wife was very happy.
On this particular vacation, our meals were even provided for us, which I would eventually learn is pretty standard on cruises, but was a wonderful surprise at the time because we had never been on one.
All inclusive vacation deals definitely have their benefits and I would recommend it to anyone that takes regular vacations. It may cost a little more than what it would if you simply planned the trip yourself and looked for all of the best bargains, but it takes away a lot of the headaches and allows you to truly relax and enjoy yourself.
