One in three Britons will only book all-inclusive package holidays abroad

MoneySavingHeros conducted research into all-inclusive holidays as part of an ongoing study into what Brits look for when it comes to booking holidays abroad.

More than 2,300 Brits aged 18 or over were polled, all of whom have travelled abroad at least once in the past two years, revealing that one in three Britons will only book all-inclusive package holidays abroad.

It was found initially that the average Brit goes on holiday once every two years for between seven to 10 nights.

The study revealed that one in three (34%) only go abroad having booked an all-inclusive holiday, with the top reasons for doing so being ‘not having to save extra/spend more on food and drink’ (42%) and ‘everything is booked and covered through one travel agent or tour operator and I don’t have to worry’ (36%).

Booking an all-inclusive holiday was found to cost spending on average £967 per person, with those who book all aspects of their holiday separately found to save on average £197, spending £770 on average, per person.

Those who continue to book all-inclusive holidays were asked why they didn’t consider booking alternative options, or booking aspects of their holidays separately to save money. What’s more, of those who chose not to book an all-inclusive holiday, saving money was the top reason why for two-thirds (67%), while others cited ‘having a larger selection of hotels and destinations to book’ (15%) and ‘less likely to end up in a hotel with families and unruly children’ (8%).

George Charles, spokesperson for MoneySavingHeroes, commented on the findings: “There is absolutely nothing wrong with booking an allinclusive holiday; yes, it typically costs more than booking all aspects individually, but you save on time and you have the guarantee that you’re 100% covered if anything goes wrong.”
