Is all inclusive actually cheaper than self-catering?

When you are looking to book a holiday abroad you will probably assume that self-catering is the cheapest way to go. The upfront cost of a self-catering holiday is often quite a bit less than all-inclusive holiday but there are other costs you need to factor in.

Even if it is relatively cheap to eat out, you may find that drinks are a little expensive. Often a couple will need around £100 a day for two of them for meals and drinks. This means for a week’s holiday self-catering, you will need to take in excess of £800 with you for spending money.

All-inclusive holidays include all you meals, most drinks and often snacks too. Even if you decide to eat out a few times a week and go to a bar one of twice you may still find that it is cheaper to go all-inclusive than if you had chosen to go self-catering.

Often when going all-inclusive, you will find you get other perks too such as free pool towels and mini bar in your room. If you do not have much spending money you can still have an amazing time and ensure that you are feed well and can have a few drinks.
