TravelSupermarket travel expert Emma Coulthurst said: “An all-inclusive holiday really helps with budgeting and pretty much allows you to know the total cost of your holiday up front as your meals and some drinks are included.
“The only spending money you really need is for souvenirs and any additional drinks which you want.
“With prices starting from as little as £170 per person for seven nights this summer, it means you may also be able to afford to eat outside the hotel as well sometimes.”
She added: “Always do your research to find out what is included in the holiday so that you know that it is the right package for you and find out as much as you can about the hotel so that you know that it suits your needs.”
