Are there benefits to booking a vacation package, or will you save more money by booking everything individually?

Below are some of the pros and cons of booking a Los Cabos vacation package this summer to answer those exact questions:


Saves Time  

One undeniable pro of booking a vacation package is that it will save time due to less planning.   

Rather than having to go from site to site to book everything individually, you can put your dates in one place and see what’s available for everything at once.   

This can literally save you hours of planning time.

Less Planning = Less Stress 

Planning a vacation can be stressful because you’re trying to coincide everything together, and one mistake can make it all fall apart.   

By booking a vacation package, there is very little room for errors with dates and other parts of planning.   

This takes a lot of the stress away, so you can spend your time getting excited about your Los Cabos vacation.

One of the great things about booking a vacation package online is that it is usually fully customizable.   

You can choose to book just your flight and ground transportation if you already have a better option for booking your accommodations.   

Or if you have some air miles lying around that you want to use, you can just book your hotel and ground transportation and use your miles for your flight.   

Essentially, you can book a full or partial package.

May Pay More For A Package 

A package might be more expensive because your options are limited to what the company offers.    

For example, for a vacation package through Southwest Vacations that includes a 5-night stay at Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort – All-Inclusive, roundtrip direct flights from Denver, with roundtrip hotel transfer, the price for two people came out to $3,529.57.   

Booking everything separately would cost $3,410.90.   

So, booking separately isn’t much less but still less. Keep in mind however, this is just one example, and prices can vary wildly.

May Be Not Be Refundable 

One thing to consider when booking a vacation package is that it may not be refundable.   

Of course, this is true for anything you book, but when you’re booking everything together, you’ll lose out on everything if it is non-refundable.   

By booking separately, you may be able to get your money back on some parts of your trip if you have to cancel.

Might Not Earn Loyalty Points 

If you have certain loyalty programs that you are racking up points on, you might want to think twice about booking a package.   

Unless you’re booking it through that same company you are a member of the loyalty program for, you won’t be adding to those points.   

If you’re getting close to earning something special, you may want to skip the package. Ive never been an all inclusive type of vacation girly, but for a long weekend booked entirely on points, I’m in every time! This hotel was the perfect in between for people that wanna relax, have fun but not trting to re live college spring break #hyattzivacabo #hyattzivaloscabos #hotelreview #allinclusiveresort #traveltiktok #travelwithpoints #creditcardpoints #traveltips #travelhacking ♬ Lazy Sunday – BCD Studio

Final Thoughts 

How you book your Los Cabos Vacation really depends on the type of planner you are.   

Some travelers love planning every detail of their trip and looking for all the best deals, while this type of planning frustrates others (this is why travel agents are still in business).   

However you decide to plan your Los Cabos vacation, just make sure you get exactly what you want because you want the memories to be everything you hope for them to be.
