Deal Strategy: Book an All-Inclusive Holiday Right After the Holidays

Often, snagging a major discount is as simple as avoiding peak travel times. Case in point: Try an all-inclusive resort just after (rather than during) the Christmas-New Year's period.

How much you can save by being flexible with when you vacation at a tropical all-inclusive resort? Here are three good examples:

The Hotel Riu Santa Fe in Los Cabos, Mexico, offers special all-inclusive rates of $101 per person per night from January 2 to 20. During the week before New Year's, meanwhile, the same resort charges a rack rate of over $250 per person nightly.

The all-inclusive rate at the Allegro Cozumel is available for $84 per person per night (or about half the rack rate during Christmas week) from January 1 to 28. Starting January 29, high season rates kick in, available from $95.

During Club Med's semi-annual sale, special one-week family vacations start as low as $699 per person (at the Club Med Columbus Isle, in the Bahamas) from January 7 to February 17. Rates begin around $100 more per person from February 18 to April 13.
