    Quality Resorts – not like the old days

    All inclusive vacations have improved so much over the years.  They offer a much more consistent level of service for a worry free vacation.  Luxury resorts will offer better rooms, better meals, international bar, better service, and beautiful grounds with less people densely packed in.

    Frequently asked Questions about All Inclusive Vacations

    Where is the cheapest place to vacation all inclusive?

    Cuba.  Especially Cayo Santa Maria, Cayo Coco, and Holguin.  The Cuban keys or “Cayos” offer affordable all inclusive value. Varadero offers more as a destination at slightly higher price.  Beyond Cuba, Puerto Plata and La Romana in the Dominican Republic are excellent value as is Puerto Vallarta in Mexico.

    Where are the best all inclusive vacations?

    The best quality all inclusive vacations are in 5 star resorts in the English Caribbean (Jamaica, Barbados, Antigua, etc) and Cancun and Mayan Riviera.  Chain hotels offer the most consistent quality but there many independently marketed resorts that are hidden gems – ask our agents who’ve actually visited these resorts.  Best is always defined by your needs and your budget.

    Do all inclusive vacations include airfare?

    Yes.  All packages include round trip airfare, in our case from Canada.  Some packaged flights are now adding baggage fees as extras, but currently Air Canada Vacations, Sunwing, and Transat offer 1 checked bag per person included in the package.  Only Westjet Vacations is charging extra for checked bags.  Seat selection fees are extra for all packages.

    Is there a cheapest day to book all inclusive vacations?

    Not really.  It’s a bit of a myth.  Revenue management is becoming increasingly automated, however there is a pattern of major price changes occurring on Monday afternoon or Tuesday – but this is all price changes – up and down.  There is no rule of thumb or pattern.

    Are all inclusive vacations worth it?

    Generally yes, provided you eat, drink, and sightsee like an average person.  Even if you don’t drink alcohol the value of the meals alone if you stay on the resort is usually worth it alone.  It’s like making a bulk deal with one restaurant for 21 meals a week.  If you eat a lot less, don’t drink alcohol, and spend a lot of time off the resort, it’s not for you.

    How do I get the best deal on all inclusive vacations?

    Speak to one our agents.  They will ask you many questions about what you’re looking for and what your best travel experience has been so far.  They will then recommend two or three choices that best maximize the quality for your budget.  Or, they can tell you what you’ll need to spend to meet your needs.  Spending too little and being disappointed is not the best deal.  Spending too much on features and locations that are not essential to your needs is a waste of money.

    What is the best time to book all inclusive vacations?

    If your want your needs satisfied, booking in advance offers the most choice and often some early booking promotional advantages.  Most price protection marketing schemes are full of loopholes and fine print.  Low season dates are priced to sell in advance but may drop a bit more at the last minute depending on demand.  School breaks sell out and should be booked further in advance.

    How much money should you take on an all inclusive vacation?

    Some cash in local currency is good for tips for exceptional (non-routine) service and special attention.  You can pre-book excursions and sightseeing and pay with credit card in advance or locally.  So it’s really tipping and small purchases (snacks, drinks) when outside the resort.  In short, not much!  That’s the whole idea.

    Can I add a person to my all inclusive room?

    Yes, provided it meets the occupancy and age requirements of the room category, and done in advance.  It is far more difficult to do at the resort.  This is called a change or deviation as the extra person may include the same or different flight, or no flight.  Some lead in room categories only accommodate two people, so sometimes a room upgrade is required adding more cost for the first two people.

    Do all-inclusive resorts charge per person?

    Yes, and no.  There is a component to the price which is room related – a certain fixed amount of revenue charged for the room itself regardless of how many people occupy it. It’s why a single price per person is higher than a double.  Then there is a per person component to account for meals, drinks and services, which is often different for adults and children.  Children don’t drink alcohol and eat less.  So it is not exactly a per person rate, or a fixed room rate.  It’s a bit of both.

    Is food free at all inclusive resorts?

    For the most part, it’s included in your price.  Many resorts now offer some premium restaurants with more cooked to order meals and individual service for a small premium.

    What drinks are included in an all inclusive vacation?

    Depending on the price and quality of the resort, the included drinks often have one regular and one light draft beer, basic red and white wine, standard spirits (rum, rye/bourbon, gin, vodka) and standard mixed cocktails (fruit juice, cream, basic liqueurs like Bailey’s etc).  Premium resorts will offer an international bar with name brands and perhaps a selection of bottled beer in addition to draft and perhaps a few choices of standard red and white wines.  In most cases wine by the bottle is extra, and there may be a supplement for premium scotches, cognacs etc (if available at all).  Soft drinks will be fountain in most cases.

    What should I pack or bring on an all inclusive vacation?

    It’s casual.  Shorts and tee shirts are often fine in the buffets.  Khakis, golf shirts, deck shoes are acceptable for most sit down/premium restaurants, but at some high end all inclusive resorts some long sleeved shirts for dinner are more appropriate.  Bathing suits alone are only acceptable at pool bars and poolside snack huts.  You don’t need much, but good sunscreen and hats are recommended.  Consider the electricity if curling irons and hair straighteners.  For computers, phones, CPAP machines, an adaptor (not a transformer) is fine for 220V.

    What currency should I have on an all inclusive vacation?

    Some US dollars are king for pretty much all all inclusive resorts other than in Cuba where you will need to purchase Cuban Convertible Pesos.   

    Why is tripcentral.ca the best site for all inclusive vacations?

    Our unique vacation grid allows you to compare dates and multiple destinations for all packages at a glance.  Our agents offer recommendations and advice to meet your needs and maximize your budget.  Booking with us gives you extra value service and someone in your corner if anything unexpected happens.

    Can I get or request an upgrade at my all inclusive resort?

    All inclusive resorts charge more for different room categories of different sizes, locations, views, or inclusions.  Your chances are almost zero that a simple request for a better room or location will be given at the resort because of your special occasion or circumstance.  Even repeat guests are seldom upgraded for free unless you have a personal connection to the hotel manager.  If you are counting on a room upgrade, you’re best to book it.  These resorts have several hundred or more rooms in many categories and even if you have a group, you are still a small fish often at an already discounted rate. 

    Is WiFi included at all inclusive resorts?

    More and more resorts are offering WiFi included and it changes by the year and month.  The quality of the connection varies – some offer it only in selected areas, some offer it resort wide but the quality is so poor it’s almost unusable, then is upgraded a few months later.  The “chain” resorts and higher end all inclusives tend to offer better WiFi for their guests – including some that are completely open and allow for free VoIP calls to North America.  It should be a factor in your decision but not the prime one, unless you absolutely need a quality connection to stay in touch at work.  Check with your wireless provider for a good roaming package – it can fill in those gaps if the WiFi is spotty.
