Information About Accommodation
There are two types of Accommodation within Travel &Tourism which are "Serviced" and "Non-Serviced". A "Serviced" accommodation is for example a hotel where you have everything done for you, like you have your food cooked by a chef and you have maids to clean your room and bar staff for your drinks so you have everything there for you. On the other hand if you was to stay in a "Non-Serviced" accommodation like staying in a static caravan on a caravan park such as Haven who are a very popular caravan
site especially for families with children. When going to a Haven site you would have to take your own facilities to ensure you have everything for your stay as nothing is made for you, as you are required to do everything for yourself. Hotels have now become one of the most popular stays when taking trips abroad. If you was to stay in a "Serviced" accommodation like a hotel it would be split in 3 sections, Full Board, Half Board and All Inclusive.
Full Board- Staying in a Full Board accommodation provides you with 3 meals a day with a drink with each normally non-alcoholic
and 1 snack when arriving, but you don’t have unlimited drinks you only get the drinks provided as well as the meals.
Half Board- When booking a Half Board holiday you will only get a Breakfast and a Tea time meal with again drink provided at each, there would normally be facilities in the resort where you could buy a drink if needed.
All inclusive- All Inclusive holiday provide you with all your meals and unlimited drinks throughout the day, they would normally have a chef which would provide your meals and snacks during the day and also at night.
