All-inclusive system in hotels is chosen by 60% of Russian travelers
As a survey, conducted by the tourist search service Aviasales, showed, about 40% of the Russians combine independently organized excursion tours with beach vacations at hotels with all-inclusive, another 20% spend all the days of holidays at hotels with all inclusive.
According to the service, tourists noted that the choice depends on the destination and budget. For example, some travelers buy a package tour to Cuba and Jamaica, because they believe that it is cheaper than flying their independently. Others prefer package tours to the Maldives and the Emirates. At the same time, such tourists alternate their vacations in all inclusive hotels with trips, which they organize themselves.
By the results of the Aviasales’ survey, 20% of the respondents spend their vacations only at all-inclusive hotels. The main goal of such travelers is “to eat, drink and spend time on the beach”, when everything is organized by tour operator - meeting at the airport, transfer and Russian-speaking staff at the hotel. Many people choose such a holiday also because they do not speak foreign languages.
