Traveling with the family or a large group this summer can be costly. With rising gas prices and inflation, buying a plane ticket for more than four people can cost an arm and a leg. That's why it's best to look into all-inclusive hotels this summer.
If you're unfamiliar with the all-inclusive concept, it's a flat rate you pay at a hotel, and you get things like food and beverages all included in your stay.
Many all-inclusive hotels have almost theme-park-level amenities, so you'll get most of your buck when there.
Occasional downsides of all-inclusives include heavy partying, which can get overwhelming if you're not part of the post-college crowd.
That's why it is important to select the right all-inclusive this summer. It varies on what kind of traveler you are, but getting the right one can make for a great vacation.
Europe is becoming one of the most visited destinations this season, and more all-inclusive are popping up. Take advantage of these offerings, but please remember to check out the rest of the country you're visiting. People in all-inclusives often get stuck at the hotel and miss out on fun adventures.
These are the top seven destinations in Europe that offer all-inclusive resorts:
