Transcript of All Inclusive Vacations - over 3 decades of research... more than half a century concept...

All inclusive hotels
Can we define A.I?
A.I. Research
Some Statistics
half a century +++
not a recent debate

Some thoughts
* Plenty of research
* Research can be biased
* No real holistic research
* Market growth slowing down
* Change will not be consumer led
* Early attempts towards best
practise approach.
* Opportunity to synergise with
academic researchers.
* AITO sponsored research.
Qualitative Examples
* Mintel 2009: 32% increase from 2004
* 2009 UK = 1 in 4
* 2011 UK = 1 in 3
* See mintel 2014
* Extended Stay?
* Half board?
* Full board?
* Alcohol?
defining A.I.
by Market Segment?
by Country?
ultra? Mega? premium? ViP? etc
Demand for all-inclusive resorts will continue as consumers chase value and try to predict and control their spending. Long-haul wedding/honeymoons should continue to grow, offering a value alternative to increasingly expensive UK weddings. Latin America led market recovery in 2010 and is expected to expand strongly in the future, led by Mexico, but also emerging tourism markets such as Costa Rica and Brazil.
Mintel 2011 - Long Haul Holidays.
... 2010 has seen package holidays outperform independent trips largely thanks to all-inclusive package growth. Half of those who took a package holiday in the past 12 months prefer the all-inclusive format. Support for all-inclusives peaks amongst under-35s and C2s.

“Tunisia was 100% all-inclusive, and Antalya in Turkey tended to be all-inclusive. Customers who have moved back to the western Mediterranean have been looking for similar. For the UK market, we’ve increased our all-inclusive product by about 20% across Spain and Greece.” Chris Mottershead, Thomas Cook UK (oct 2016, travelweekly.co.uk)
