More and more travellers are opting for cheap all inclusive holidays.

Cheap all inclusive holidays are back in fashion with a passion. As the days of striking out on your own with just a boarding card and cabin baggage in hand begin to fade, the all inclusive holiday deal is proving just too tempting! Packages now make up a huge 36 per cent of summer bookings, an increase of 31 per cent on 2010.

Knowing that you’ve paid for your break in full is not the only advantage. It’s safer to book a reputable package holiday than a do-it-yourself itinerary online, as the holiday company is obliged to look after you if you’re grounded at Gatwick, or your hotel is not up to standard.

Prices can also be amazingly cheap. Easy Jet flight prices for August are through the roof, but Thomson (www.thomson.co.uk) has over 30,000 holiday deals on offer with departures in the next four weeks. The cheapest deal we found is a seven-night stay in the Georgia Apartment complex in Afandou, Rhodes, with return flights from Gatwick departing on the 14th of September, from just £205 per person. That’s a pretty amazing price for August and saves you £154.

Easy Jet (www.holidays.easyjet.com) also started offering package holidays this year. 7 nights in Nerja on the Costa del Sol in mid September, with flights from Gatwick start at around £150 per person. And if you’re thinking ahead to next summer, First Choice (www.firstchoice.co.uk), is making all its holidays all-inclusive from 2012.

As of next summer, everything from flights to food and drinks will be included in your break. Families can save around £500 by choosing an all-inclusive stay and that’s an offer we can hardly refuse! First Choice is now offering April 2012 deals including seven nights in the Algarve from £264 and four nights in Cyprus from £323, which is a good price for an Easter break.

So check out Thomson, Easy Jet, Thomas Cook (www.thomascook.com), First Choice and their smaller rivals for cheap all inclusive holidays and save your hard-earned cash for a little local retail therapy!
