You may be wondering: what are all-inclusive timeshare plans? How does it work? Does it work out cheaper? Is it compulsory? I am going to explore all of these questions in this post.
There is no hard and fast rule about all-inclusive plans, as each timeshare operator will have its own program. The two main forms of plans are compulsory all-inclusive timeshare plans and optional. Compulsory occur when you purchase a timeshare at a resort that only offers all-inclusive packages, while optional all-inclusive timeshare plans occur when the resort offers both all-inclusive timeshare packages as well as room only plans (European Plan).
Before you purchase a timeshare at a resort that only offers all-inclusive packages, you should decide if all-inclusive vacations suit your needs. If you have any doubts, it is often better to choose a resort that offers optional all-inclusive timeshare plans, which gives you the freedom to decide between all-inclusive, cooking in your suite and dining out in the destination you are visiting.
How do optional all-inclusive timeshare plans work?
The most popular are optional. That is, you can choose to enjoy an all-inclusive timeshare plan for part or all of your stay, paying extra for the all-inclusive plan. Usually there is a minimum length of time that you need to have the all-inclusive timeshare plans, such as three days in a row. However, you should check with your timeshare provider, if you have any doubts.
All-inclusive timeshare plans are a great option, especially if you just want to sit back and relax and not worry about anything during your vacation. Many timeshare resorts and residence clubs will allow you to pay with club points or cash, which helps you budget your vacation more successfully.
How do compulsory all-inclusive timeshare plans work?
If you have bought a timeshare at a resort where the timeshare plans are compulsory, the cost of the all-inclusive plan is usually charged at the same time as your maintenance fees.
