First Choice holidays will make all its holidays "all inclusive" from 2012, claiming it will save money. Is cost the most important consideration when booking a holiday?
From next summer it will become the UK's first mainstream holiday company specialising in all-inclusive holidays.
Flights, in-resort transfers, hotel accommodation, three meals a day and unlimited local drinks will all be included in the price.
The move bucks the trend of the past decade's popularity of building your own holiday.
Have you been on an all-inclusive holiday? What are the pros and the cons? Have you saved money by going on an all-inclusive break? Do you prefer them to other types of holidays? Do they 'dampen the appetite to explore' or encourage to try new things? What are the implications for local businesses?
