(WMC) – Memorial Day is getting closer and some say it's the kickoff to the summer travel season. WMC Action News 5's Andrew Douglas shares four big benefits of booking your travel needs as a package deal, according to AAA.

1. Pay one price for everything.

All inclusive vacation packages make budgeting for a vacation simple. A vacation package offers travelers one price for the most expensive needs like a hotel room, attraction tickets and transportation and in many cases, the package price includes taxes and fees.

2. It eliminates a logistical nightmare.

One of the top headaches for many travelers is logistics. Setting up the easiest itineraries can be difficult. How to get from one place to another? What to see? Where to get tickets? And finding the best places to stay can make a vacation more work than fun. With a package vacation, everything is set up and logistically aligned for you; all you have to do is show up and smile.

3. It can save you more money.

Vacation packages can save travelers hundreds of dollars because the hotel rooms, attraction tickets, and other items are often purchased in bulk at very low rates. This allows travel companies to offer consumers much lower prices than if they booked everything separately or on their own.

4. Packaged deals can get you added benefits and upgrades.

Many hotel and vacation packages come with extra amenities and upgrades you wouldn't get otherwise. Discounts on hotel rooms, late checkout times, free room upgrades when available and children eating for free are often included.
