What type of traveller are you? Do you like to hit the road and just “wing” it when you get to your destination? Or do you prefer to plan everything to the last detail, from hotels and guest houses you will stay in to the meals you will eat and attractions you will see?
While winging it has a certain amount of allure for the modern traveller, it can also end up being quite costly, especially if you travel during peak holiday seasons.

What are all-inclusive holiday packages?
All-inclusive holiday packages have become quite the trend in recent years. Avid globe trotters have discovered the many perks of all-inclusive deals, some of which include saving money, reducing travel stress, and being able to visit destinations that would otherwise be too expensive.
A holiday package takes all the guess-work out of planning a trip or how much to budget for your hoiday! The hardest thing you will have to do is let go of your daily stresses and commit to relaxing, unwinding and enjoying your time away.
It’s important to understand that not all all-inclusive holidays are the same. There’s no hard and fast rule about what “all inclusive” really means. Each travel agency or resort will have their own definition of all-inclusive deals with a range of amenities that are provided in addition to your accommodation. This usually includes food and drink, specified activities, entertainment and so on.
With the volatility of our SA Rand, when you book holiday packages from South Africa make sure that you ask exactly what is included and what the limitations are. For instance, drinks might be included but there may be a limit on a certain number of drinks per day.
