A survey recently carried out by ABTA, the travel association, shows that more and more Britons are opting for an all-inclusive holiday deal, with 48 percent choosing a package holiday in 2012 compared to just 37 percent in 2010.
Travellers are also changing when they book their holidays, with a reported 34 percent booking earlier to make the most of cheap deals and better choice and 26 percent waiting longer to book, in order to capitalise on cheap last minute offers.
According to the Telegraph, ABTA claims that possible reasons for these increases in package holidays could be the higher demand for secure accommodation and financial protection - both of which can be attained when booking through an agency.
Moreover, planning your own holiday from scratch is time consuming and can often work out more expensive than a package deal - which is not an attractive prospect in these difficult financial times.
However, as reported in All inclusive holidays, soon to be a thing of the past, the prices of all-in deals may seem tempting at first, but on closer inspection, it is clear that you don't get much value for money due to the low quality of the services and products.
