Blog: Is your vacation really a relaxing vacation without the chores?


Happy Memorial Day Weekend! It is hard to believe that summer is right around the corner. The kids will be out of school in two weeks and it will be time for summer vacations. Have you planned your summer vacation yet? Will you be relaxing on a beach in the Caribbean or will you be hauling ten tons of beach gear to the crowded beaches of Ocean City?

I know I would prefer to be relaxing in the Caribbean with nothing to worry about. Now would you believe that it is actually possible to go on an all-inclusive vacation for LESS money than a week at the local beach? That’s right! People are paying more money to be in traffic for hours, sit on crowded beaches and continue all of the chores that you do at home such as cooking, cleaning etc. Not the ideal vacation.

One of our travel agency’s preferred suppliers, Apple Vacations, has compiled an itemized list of all the expenses and chores at the local beach versus the cost of an all-inclusive vacation minus all of the chores of the local beach. The results will surprise you.

On average a week at the local beach could easily cost a family of four up to $6700.00. This includes a 3 bedroom beach block rental, all meals, snacks, drinks, entertainment and activities. Not to mention all of the chores that comes along with the rental. Now compare that to a vacation at an all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean with an average cost of $3396.00. And yes, this includes everything that was taken in account for with the local beach vacation and more. The all-inclusive vacation package includes your round trip airfare, transfers to and from the resort, accommodations at a beachfront resort, all meals, snacks, drinks, tips, kids programs and entertainment- all for one affordable price and for less than you would pay for a week at Ocean City!

No cooking, no cleaning, no walking many blocks to the beach or having to worry about entertainment options for the kids. You can just relax! Now that sounds like the vacation that we all deserve. Check out the itemized list of vacation costs and start planning your relaxing beach vacation. You deserve rest and relaxation on your vacation. Want more information?
