Price VS Value
Is it all about the bottom line? Maybe not!
I know that we are all on a budget of some sort. We must juggle between our wants and needs every day. When planning a vacation one of the first things most people think about is how much it’s going to cost them. Most of my clients, that request a land package, want an “all-inclusive” package. Generally speaking, an all-inclusive land package includes a flight, hotel, meals, beverages and taxes. However, this is not always “the bottom line”!
Keep in mind that a total package price does not mean this is what the trip will cost you. Some extra costs to keep in mind when planning your budget are:
On another note, when it comes to “all inclusive”, not all resorts and cruise lines are created equal. I recommend that when comparing prices, it’s best to look at all that is included. Price alone does not equal value. Every resort and cruise line offers different amenities so look closely at what “all inclusive” means and includes. Remember that all those extra amenities equate to an increased package price. You will need to determine if you see value in the extras or not.
