All-inclusive Packages Popular Among Hungarians
"People want budget security, which is especially important in these times. They want to know what the vacation will ultimately cost, and with an all-inclusive booking, all incidental costs are already included in the price at the hotel," says Gottfried Math, managing director of TUI Austria, in relation to the popularity of all-inclusive bookings.
"Currently, 70% of summer bookings from Hungary include an all-inclusive package," notes Tamás Taskár, TUI sales manager Hungary.
The all-inclusive deals are especially in high demand in countries like Turkey and Egypt.
"I am all the more pleased that in the summer we are offering up to 14 weekly departures from Budapest to Antalya with TUI and now also two weekly departures to Izmir as well as to Hurghada," says Taskár.
The three most-booked hotels for TUI's Hungarian guests in summer 2023 are on the Turkish Riviera: the four-star TUI Magic Life Jacaranda club, followed by the five-star Rixos Premium Tekirova and Delphin Be Grand Resort Lara - all on an all-inclusive basis.
