We all know that feeling when you finally decide you are going on that holiday to a country with a strong currency – and then suddenly someone says or does something and the Rand just plummets into a deep abyss. You then re-do your expenses calculations and realise that you will be adding a couple of thousand onto the holiday…and simply cannot afford it anymore.
That feeling sucks.
This year, for the first time ever, I booked a holiday that included flights, accommodation, food and all drinks. Then the Rand plummeted. It kind of felt like I took out an insurance policy against the Rand.
Yes, I still have to buy a bit of Forex (US dollars), but I still have 2 months. Anything can happen – right? If push comes to shove I can always go on less excursions, which means there will be no big credit card charges – but I probably won’t cut this part of the holiday either.
Reasons to book an inclusive holiday:
- You can budget before you even board the plane
- The Rand can free-fall and you will still be able to eat and drink
- There won’t be any dishes and you won’t need to hunt for food
- You don’t need to carry cash around at the resort
- You won’t have to book the components of your holiday separately
