当计划只是没有’听起来对您来说很有趣,然后包罗万象的声音听起来很甜美。这意味着你去那里,一切都照顾好了,你却没有’不必担心任何事情。太糟糕了“all-inclusive” resorts are not created equal and without getting all the facts, 您 may end up spending more than 您 have and having a crummy vacation, knowing that 您 are going into debt to pay for all the extras that 您 thought were built-in to 您r price. Many 全包 resorts also cater to regular guest show don’想要包括所有东西,只想支付自己的房费,然后每天出去做其他事情。




So, who are 全包 resorts for?
·         太阳崇拜者和海滩流浪汉。 如果你 just like to lie on the beach all day, then 您’re set.
·         家庭。 娱乐,美食,海滩和儿童俱乐部都在步行距离之内,非常方便,但不必每隔五分钟就掏钱一次。
·         假期非计划者。 Do 您 hate to plan trips? Well, everything is taken care of in one bundle with 全包 vacations.
·         观光客。 如果你 aren’除了在海滩上进行活动以外,对在度假村外做太多事情真的很感兴趣,他们有很多让您免于徘徊于不道德行为的念头。
·         豪华度假者。 如果你’re used to having someone take care of everything and just sitting back and feeling like a VIP, 全包s have that feel. Splurge a bit and head to the spa for a treatment.
·         海洋爱好者。 您是否想通过浮潜,潜水,冲浪,布吉冲浪,皮划艇和游泳来度过一个美好的假期?
·         预算旅客。 许多度假村提供了可以提供的大折扣’请勿分别预订酒店和机票,包括比每天支付的费用更好的活动和餐饮。


谁是’t they for?
·         适中于观光客和城市探险者。 Once 您 get to 您r destination, are 您 dying to get out and SEE EVERYTHING THERE IS TO SEE? Chances are, an 全包 is not for 您. Most likely, 您 will be out and about during meal times and won’不能利用附带的就餐选择。
·         单行旅客。 Like most packages, 全包 rates are based on double occupancy. 如果你 pay for just 您, it’您可能会花费所发布价格的150%(在某些情况下还会更高),’根本不省钱。
·         那些需要做的事情。 像观光客和城市旅客一样,您可能没有钱’s worth out of an 全包 resort. 如果你 have to be out doing something during the day, the monotony of 看到ing the same resort all day every day likely will make 您 stir-crazy.
·         那些想充分利用旅行的人。 如果你去“see” the world, then resort vacationing is not really for 您. You will feel obligated to spend as much time as possible on-property when what 您 really want to be doing is discovering a new destination and 看到ing everything 那里 is to 看到. You’ll pay for meals out that were included had 您 stayed at the resort and spend money on things 您 really wanted to do and 看到.
·         美食家。 While many 全包 resorts offer several different dining venues, nothing beats hitting the pavement and finding local cafes and restaurants that serve authentically native foods. On a resort, 您 will have the options of dining at different locations on the property, but much of the cuisine will be appealing to everyone, meaning 您 won’无法获得真正的区域性用餐体验。
·         社会蝴蝶。 是的,您可以每天花时间与一个新的家庭或夫妇聊天,以了解他们的生活和城市’会回访,但真正的旅行社交蝴蝶喜欢在任何可能的地方与当地人交谈。您可能已经对德克萨斯州或墨尔本有所了解。您可以在家里与这些人交谈。不是他们不是’可以结交好人和终生的朋友,但是旅行时’了解您的目的地和生活中的人们的方式更加有趣 那里.
·         控制怪胎。 I’此类别中的m。我想知道有关假期的一切,并计划所有事情。如果你’同样,可能你不知道’不想把统治权交给别人“go with the flow”.


在预订假期之前,您应该问什么问题?
·         Are 所有 meals included? Food is the first thing I think of when going 全包. Are all 您r meals included or just some of them? This can make all the difference in the world when it comes to cost. If only lunch and dinner are included or 您 can only eat at designated times, then maybe 您 want to rethink making a reservation.
·         含酒精饮料吗? 也许你不知道’t drink, but if 您 do, then booze really adds up. Having to pay for it is going to be a sad day at the end of 您r trip when 您 看到 您r bar tab. 如果你 some relaxing margaritas and mojitos are on 您r itinerary, then make sure to ask about this.
·         美食呢? 多么失望 当你’大家都非常兴奋地尝试用花哨的白色桌布和菲力牛排去那个不同的餐厅,结果发现了它’您的帐单要额外付费吗?当您回到那条排队时,尽量不要对自助餐哭泣。
·         零食? 你能告诉我我是美食爱好者吗?它’出门回家时,我能穿上裤子,真是令人惊讶。大声笑!零食的费用会迅速增加。特别是当您有孩子时,他们经常说他们饿了,想吃点零食。一个完美的家庭假期将包括前往小吃店24/7。这样可以为您省钱,对吗?如果不是这样,则最好在旅行时携带带有零食的手提袋。
·         什么是活动“free”? 机动活动通常是您需要额外付费的东西。如果您只对冲浪,皮划艇和浮潜感兴趣,那么这可能是一个好处,但是如果您必须在列表中进行帆伞运动,水上摩托艇等活动,并且必须自掏腰包(并且可能比平时更多,因为那里’在附近没有其他地方出租此类物品可能会破坏交易。
·         孩子们可以免费玩耍吗? 虽然有很多度假村,其中包括最多两个孩子和两个大人,但他们不需要额外的钱就可以做自己想做的一切–除了那些可怕的税收–视儿童为额外客人的人数也很多。因此,虽然$ 65 /晚听起来不错,这也是价格 每人。 $ 130 /晚与$ 260 /晚(4人家庭)大不相同。
·         包括转让吗? 如果您的度假率不’t include airfare –通常情况下,最好还是将所有东西都放在一个包装中– how will 您 get from the airport to the property? Many 全包 resorts are far from the city center (in order to be private, though some will argue that it’s so 您 don’请尝试离开并在其他地方花钱),到达那里可能会有些棘手,而且价格昂贵。


Hopefully, this covers all the basics of an 全包 holiday and what to expect and not to expect. All-inclusive usually comes with a few (or a lot) of stipulations. Make sure 您r bottom line is really one 您 can live with and isn’t something 您 would have paid less for to do more at 您r destination had 您 planned it all 您rself. The one time I went 全包, I was not all that thrilled with my entertainment or dining choices. Great for a few nights. Not so great for 7 nights. I got bored and wanted to do stuff at my destination that was outside of my resort and eat food that was different than what was available 那里.


Tip for Southeasterners: 如果你 live close to Florida beaches and just need a quick (inexpensive) getaway, 那里 is a wide range of 全包s 那里 that could be perfect for 您r needs. They don’需要护照,’比其他许多海滩温暖。它’您可以在不离开国家的情况下最接近加勒比海和巴哈马的度假胜地。
Have 您 ever been on an 全包 holiday? Did 您 feel like 您 got 您r money’值得还是您无聊了一个多星期的眼泪?
