All-Inclusive Holidays - June 2014

Analysts broadly concur that all-inclusive holidays hark back to the British holiday camps established in the 1930s. Today, all-inclusive holidays are a global phenomenon, with Club Med widely credited as the pioneer of these in the 1950s. Definitions and products are varied, however, a typical all-inclusive holiday comprises air travel, transfers, full-board meals, snacks and a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

The global economic downturn of 2007/08 has witnessed a resurgence in the demand for all-inclusive holidays, with a growing number of travellers seeking the security of knowing the full cost of and paying for their holiday before it begins. This heightened demand has seen a growing number of hotels and resorts introduce all-inclusive room rates.
