Tour operator VACATIONEXPRESS.com will expand its seasonal non-stop chartered flights from four U.S. cities to the island of Jamaica. Travelers can select resorts in Negril, Ocho Rios, Montego Bay, Runaway Bay and other areas.
“While the airfare-only option is offered on all routes, most travelers opt for vacation packages that include airfare and all-inclusive resort stay. When going ‘all-inclusive,’ you pay one price for your accommodations, all meals and drinks,” said Kevin Hernandez, vice president of sales and digital strategy. Unlike a cruise vacation where vacationers often end up with a large bill as they get off the ship, all-inclusive resorts include almost everything except for the little extras such as spa treatments and tours – and even those are included at some of the five star options. Budgeting has never been easier, whether you stay at a three, four or five star resort.
