All-inclusive Holidays - UK - April 2009

The number of all-inclusive holidays abroad has grown by an estimated 32% over the past five years, with the clear acceleration seen during 2007/08 expected to continue through 2009 as the segment increases its market share while the overall travel market is slowing down.

Consumers are switching from self-catering and half-board to all-inclusive and full-board formats and tour operators are remixing their supply portfolios to meet changing demand. Budgetary control and perceived value for money are the critical drivers, but all-inclusive holidays are also benefiting from a more conservative travel mindset than has been apparent during the years of economic boom.

This report provides an overview of the market for all-inclusive holidays abroad, investigating the core market factors, strengths and weaknesses, consumer dynamics, and likely future trends.
