Bookings for all-inclusive holidays have risen by 50 per cent over four years.
The boom is thought to be a result of the post-crunch financial pressure on families.
All-inclusive deals give peace of mind as holidaymakers know how much their break will cost and can budget accordingly.
A third of package holidays are now all-inclusive, according to an analysis of seven million bookings over the past four years by The Co-operative Travel.
Many find cheap deals for what were once considered the luxury end of the market, with some all-in breaks working out as little as £372 a person for a week in Majorca.
Booking a budget airline flight and a cheap hotel separately online can seem cheaper but many holidaymakers then find they spend a lot more than anticipated when they are there.
Spending money varies but on a non-inclusive package the typical Brit can get through around £450 over a fortnight, said The Co-operative.
Most all-inclusive deals include all meals and free drinks.
Resorts with facilities such as water sports and spas will include those within the price of the package
The rise of the all-inclusive getaway shows no sign of slowing.
Co-operative director of retail distributions, Trevor Davis, said: 'The growth in all-inclusive holidays is remarkable and shows no sign of slowing.
'By next summer, just under half of all package holidays are likely to be all-inclusive if the current trend continues.'
'With holiday budgets still tight, it’s clear that more and more people are preferring a fixed cost option, meaning that they can relax during their break without counting the pennies.'
Meanwhile another study confirmed that up to 40 per cent of Brits spend more on holiday than they budgeted for.
The M&S research found one in ten holidaymakers go away without having any idea what food, drink and other items cost in their chosen destination.
