If you are looking to book a holiday aboard then you may have the choice as to whether to have all or some of your meals included within your stay or to go self-catering and buy your food separately. There are advantages and disadvantages to both and you may decide to alternate your board type each time you go away. Some people say that they get bored eating in the same place day in day out when going all inclusive, so they opt for self-catering. Before deciding, have a good look through the information for the resort. Find out how many restaurants are on site that are included in the all-inclusive price and what types of food they serve.
If you decide to go self-catering, do not forget to factor the cost of meals into your holiday budget as this can very quickly add up. Spend a bit of time before you go researching local restaurants and reading reviews. Social media sites and places like Trip Advisor are often good for finding out what people really think of a place. If it is a popular restaurant then you may even want to book a table in advance to secure your booking prior to going.
