    All-inclusive holidays are becoming more and more popular. Parents who work long hours want to go on holidays to relax and not have to worry about costs or venturing too far for entertainment. All-inclusive holidays do just that, providing what you want, when you want it! In fact many families go on all-inclusive holidays and don’t leave the hotel at all. Here’s why!

    It’s quicker, easier and cheaper to organise.

    From start to finish booking an-inclusive holiday couldn’t be easier. You don’t have to worry about booking flights, hotels and transfers separately. They are all included in the price and booked in one quick step. Even checked baggage is included so you don’t need to think about squashing clothes into one or two cases, as every passenger has their own checked baggage allowance. You also only have to pay a deposit when you book, so no need to pay for the full cost of your flights in advance. Falcon’s holiday deposits start from €75 per person (depending on your holiday destination) with final payment due 10 weeks prior to departure.

    Meals and drinks are included in the price of your stay.

    You know those familiar sounds  ‘I’m thirsty, can I have money for a drink or can I have an ice-cream?’ On hot summer days, this is inevitable. On an all-inclusive holiday however, not only do you not have to think about the cost, but in most places children can get drinks and snacks themselves. You don’t even have to leave your sunlounger! Meal times are painless too, you don’t have to decide where you want to eat, because you will be dining on site. Many hotels offer á la carte restaurants so you don’t always have to dine in the same restaurant every night.

    There is a wide choice of entertainment available

    While all hotels and resorts are different, most all-inclusive resorts offer an extensive entertainment program and kids clubs are available in almost all family resorts. Pool games and quizzes are common during the day but some properties offer musicians, even west end style shows at night time. Sports activities are plentiful with tennis courts, aqua aerobics and football being favourites in many resorts.  Falcon’s Splashworld resorts include unlimited access to a waterpark throughout your stay.

    Meet friends with similar interests

    When you book a family all-inclusive resort, you can be sure that you will meet like minded people there. Most people will be travelling with children so not only should your kids meet friends to play with, but inevitably you will meet parents to share a drink or meal with too.

    Luxury all-inclusive holidays are available too!

    All-inclusive family holidays can be luxurious too. Falcon offers a selection of five star all-inclusive resorts which cater for children as well as offering luxury for adults. Holiday Village resorts in Rhodes and Majorca and the Tabaiba Princess in Gran Canaria, are just some of their luxury all-inclusive family resorts available. TUI Magic Life offer drinks and snacks for 24 hours as well as sports and fitness programs such as spinning classes and watersports. Numerous dining options, afternoon tea and premium branded spirits are also common in luxury all-inclusive resorts.

    And don’t forget about long haul…

    All-inclusive resorts are not restricted to the traditional package holiday destinations such as Spain, Portugal or Greece. Falcon Holidays offer direct flights to Cancun from Dublin airport during the summer months, with plenty of family friendly all-inclusive resorts to choose from. The Grand Bahia Principe Coba has a kids waterpark on site and the Azul Beach Resort The Fives has nine restaurants to choose from and a teen club which offers DJ challenges and social media access on their iMacs.
