Can I hear you veterans' opinions for which kind of deal you would shop for and why?
Would the availability of one or the other kind of deal be a deal-breaker?
I'm pondering a first-ever trip to the Maldives, that would involve some diving. Maybe I'm not looking in the right places, but some places, like the Hilton property for example, do not appear to have all-inclusive-packages.
I should mention as an aside that I'm also interested in earning/redeeming airline and/or hotel points. How much of a conflict of interest is that for a given pursuit?Edited: 23 April 2013, 17:24
