An all-inclusive vacation is a dream for many travelers. Paying for everything upfront means you don’t have to think about how much things cost when you arrive at your destination. Your hotel, flight, food, drinks, and even things like airport transfers can be lumped into a vacation package that can save you money.
In this post, we’ll show you 10 websites that offer all-inclusive vacation packages and deals to help you find the best price for your next vacation. So, sit back, relax, and come with us as we explore ways you can get a great deal on your next all-inclusive vacation.
CheapCaribbean.com is a popular site for finding inexpensive vacations. The great thing about this site is that you can filter your results to only show all-inclusive resorts.
To do this, first, enter your destination and travel dates. Then you’ll see your search results. There are lots of filtering options — just scroll down a bit to Experience, and you’ll be able to select only all-inclusive options.
After selecting a resort, you’ll be able to add extras like airport transfers or insurance during the checkout process. If you want to book a flight along with your hotel stay, be sure to select Hotel + Flight before you start your search.
Hot Tip: When booking an all-inclusive resort, be sure to correctly enter the number of guests traveling since prices are quoted per person.
CheapTickets is another website that allows you to narrow your search to include only all-inclusive resorts. After clicking on the all-inclusive filtering option on the left, you can sort your search results by things like price or distance using the sorting options at the top of the page.
One of the nice things about this site is that it has a map feature that allows you to search for hotels by location. This can be helpful if you want a resort close to specific tourist attractions or landmarks.
You may notice that CheapTickets is powered by Expedia, so you might think that both sites offer the same deals. In reality, each site can show different search results and different prices, so it’s a good idea to check both to see which one offers the best deal.
Hot Tip: You may find Hyatt Ziva or Hyatt Zilara properties in your search results for an all-inclusive vacation package. These properties can be booked using World of Hyatt points so keep them in mind if you have World of Hyatt or Chase Ultimate Rewards points burning a hole in your pocket. If you’re planning to pay cash but have Hyatt elite status or are trying to earn Hyatt elite status, you’ll want to book directly since you can’t use or earn elite status when booking through a third party.
3. Apple Vacations
If you’ve been searching for a vacation package, chances are you’ve run across Apple Vacations. This company is a leader in providing deals on tropical vacations. The site allows you to easily focus on only all-inclusive resorts by selecting All-Inclusive in the Experiences section of the filtering options.
One of the things that makes Apple Vacations a bit different is the ability to add extras during the booking process. You can add the usual suspects like airport transportation and insurance, but Apple Vacations also offers the ability to book things like spa treatments, a rental car, and sightseeing tours.
Hot Tip: Southwest Airlines flies to many popular vacation spots (including international destinations) but won’t be included on any third-party website. If you want to check Southwest’s prices, you’ll have to do a separate search on the airline’s website.
4. All Inclusive Outlet
All Inclusive Outlet specializes in — you guessed it — all-inclusive vacation packages. However, you can also use it to book cruises.
If you have some flexibility or aren’t sure where you want to go, check out the Hot Deals tab, where you can find deals listed by destination, interest, or special sales. Most packages offered on this site are for destinations in the Caribbean and Mexico. However, you’ll also find a few options for the U.S., Central America, and South America.
One of the unique things about All Inclusive Outlet is that it offers the ability to purchase Cancel for Any Reason insurance. Known as CFAR coverage, it allows you to cancel for reasons that may not be covered by other insurance plans, like COVID-19.
Hot Tip: CFAR insurance is available to purchase as a separate policy, meaning you can get it without having to book your all-inclusive vacation package through a specific website. For more information, you can check out our complete guide to travel insurance to bring you up to speed on what you may or may not need.
Expedia is a popular online travel agency for searching for flights and hotels, but you can also use it to search for all-inclusive vacation packages. After specifying your departure and destination cities and travel dates, look for the all-inclusive filtering option on the left side of your screen.
One of the nice things about Expedia is that it offers the ability to easily see only properties that have generous refund policies. Just be sure to check your specific hotel’s policy before booking since “fully refundable” can have different meanings at different locations.
Another nice thing about using Expedia is the One Key program. You’ll be able to earn and use points (called OneKeyCash) on eligible trips and gain access to special member pricing. Using a travel agency’s rewards program is a great way to earn rewards when you’re not participating in a hotel chain’s loyalty program.
Hot Tip: If you’re a fan of Hyatt and also love all-inclusive resorts, you’ll be thrilled to know that Hyatt has acquired Apple Leisure Group and its AMR Collection which includes luxury all-inclusive resort brands like Secrets, Dreams, Breathless, Zoëtry, Alua, and Sunscape. You can now earn and use World of Hyatt points at most of these resorts.
6. American Airlines Vacations
If you’re in the market for adding to your AA AAdvantage miles, you might be wondering if you can earn miles by booking an all-inclusive vacation package through American Airlines Vacations. The answer is yes. To limit your search to all-inclusive resorts, select All-inclusive resort under the Property Types filter.
You’ll earn a minimum of 1,000 American miles with any package booked through AA Vacations, but keep an eye out for special deals that come with up to 30,000 bonus miles. You’ll also earn Loyalty Points towards elite status with your purchase.
If you already have some American Airlines miles and you’d like to save cash on your vacation, you can book an all-inclusive vacation with miles! You’ll only get 1 cent per point in value and since we value American Airlines miles at 1.4 cents each, it’s not a great deal. However, if you have miles to spare and would rather have an all-inclusive vacation instead of flights, this could be a way to make that happen.
Hot Tip: You can either earn AAdvantage miles when booking a hotel or vacation package through American Airlines Vacations or you can use them to pay for your trip. For more information, check out our guide to booking travel through American Airlines Vacations.
While you might think of Kayak as a great website to use for flight searches, it can also find hotels, car rentals, cruises, and vacation packages. This easy-to-use site is a metasearch engine. That means it can search for travel on other sites so you can easily see where the good deals are. Then, you’ll be transferred to a separate site to book.
To narrow your search to all-inclusive resorts only, select All-inclusive under Board in the filtering options after specifying your travel details.
You’ll see that each search result lists a separate website where that particular deal can be found. If there are multiple websites offering a similar deal, you’ll be able to see them all by clicking the See all dropdown arrow under View Deal.
8. Funjet Vacations
Funjet Vacations specializes in vacation packages, especially all-inclusive resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean.
You can search for all-inclusive resorts by clicking on the All-Inclusive tab on the home page and entering your travel information. The search results show lots of information, including Tripadvisor ratings and any extra bonuses available, like free COVID-19 testing or free accommodations for kids.
During the checkout process, you can add extras to your booking, including trip insurance, airport transfer, rental car, and sightseeing tours.
Keep an eye out for Funjet’s Insider Perks program, which offers things like free airport transfers, VIP excursions, and room upgrades when you book select hotels.
Hotels.com is a great way to book independent hotels since it participates in a loyalty program called One Key. It’s a nice way to earn and use points (called OneKeyCash) when you’re not booking through a large loyalty program like World of Hyatt or Marriott Bonvoy.
The filtering option to select only all-inclusive resorts is a little harder to find on Hotels.com than other sites, but it’s there. Just scroll down on your search results page until you see Accommodation type in the filtering options on the left. You can then select all-inclusive from that list.
Be sure to create a free account and log in to do your hotel searches so you can see the “secret prices” that can save you money. We found lots of options that were $7 to $53 cheaper per night after logging in.
Hotels.com’s loyalty program is called OneKey, the same program used by Expedia and Vrbo.
One of the nice things about Orbitz is that in addition to filtering by property type (like all-inclusive), you can filter by cancellation policy so you can quickly see hotels that offer free cancellation.
While Orbitz is fairly similar to many other online travel agencies, one of its benefits is the Orbitz Rewards program. You’ll earn Orbucks on flights, hotels, and vacation packages booked through the platform. Then you can use your Orbucks toward future hotel reservations. This is a great way to participate in a loyalty program when you don’t have loyalty to a specific brand’s program.
All-Inclusive Vacation Package Price Comparisons
Now that we’ve gone over some of the best websites for all-inclusive vacation package deals, let’s do a price comparison to see how these sites stack up against each other.
We priced out a 7-night stay for 2 adults at Riu Palace Las Americas, a popular all-inclusive resort in Cancún, Mexico. We checked prices for just the hotel as well as a hotel and flight package. Here are the results:
SCROLL FOR MORE
|Website||Hotel Cost||Hotel and Flight Cost|
|All Inclusive Outlet||$2,531.26||$3,044.40|
|American Airlines Vacations||N/A||$3,904.61|
|Hotel’s own website||$2,596.16||N/A|
Prices were for 2 people in a Junior Suite, the least expensive room available.
In this example, CheapTickets and Orbitz tied for the best price for a hotel and flight while Kayak offered the best price for the hotel only, beating out even the hotel’s website.
Going on an all-inclusive vacation is a dream for many travelers. The ease of paying for everything upfront is very appealing to those looking for ultimate relaxation. However, some all-inclusive resorts can be expensive, so it’s a good idea to look for package deals to help you save money.
There are lots of websites out there to help you do just that. While there isn’t 1 site that always offers the lowest price, with just a small bit of research, you can find a great deal. We hope these website suggestions help you find a fantastic all-inclusive vacation package that’s perfect for your next trip!
