With the leaves changing and temperatures dropping, you don’t have to stop thinking about your next warm-weather vacation. A long list of loyalty program promotions from hotels could have you racking up points and other perks to enjoy on your next trip. From your favorite hotels in global hubs like London and Sydney to new hotels elsewhere that are opening this fall, vacation mode should be permanently switched on thanks to the benefits that come with hotel loyalty programs and affiliated credit cards.

Vacations can also stem from travel-related contests and sweepstakes, some of which can have you living your bucket list travel or sports fan dream. No matter where you plan to go this fall, these are some of the biggest fall promotions worth registering for in the coming weeks.

Choose your fall bonus with IHG One Rewards

This fall promotion from IHG One Rewards gives members the chance to choose the promotion that works best for their travel plans. They can register for 2,000 bonus points after every two nights or 10,000 bonus points after every four nights. Once chosen, the offer cannot be adjusted, and that’s how they will earn points on qualifying stays between Oct. 13, 2022 and Dec. 31, 2022. Be sure to register before you check in for your first stay. To maximize the promotion, it depends how many nights you plan to stay with IHG this fall.

The 10 Best All-Inclusive Resorts

Are you ready to splurge on the vacation of your dreams? For many individuals, couples, and families, an all-inclusive resort is the best way to budget for vacation while enjoying all the amenities you want. Leave your wallet in your suitcase because you (probably) won’t need it at one of these top all-inclusive resorts.

When you’re choosing an all-inclusive resort, you’ll notice that some are marketed to be family-friendly, while others are adults-only. Within the adults-only category, you’ll find “couples-only” resorts, where you’ll find honeymooners galore as well as other couples looking to connect with each other in an intimate setting with no kids around; adults-only, where anyone over the age of either 18 or 21 (depending on the resort’s policy) is allowed, and “lifestyle” resorts, where single adults and couples are there to enjoy each other’s company.

Whether you want an adult-only or all-ages resort, you’ll find a different vibe in every resort. Some feature lively after-hours clubs, some place an emphasis on athletics and activities, and some provide a tranquil seaside getaway where you can relax and leave the nine-to-five grind behind.

For this round-up, we’ve polled everyday vacationers and travel experts alike, along with reading tons of reviews, to find the best resorts of all types in virtually every part of the world.

When you choose your resort, you’ll want to verify if airport transfers are included or if you’ll need to pay extra for transportation to the resort. Also be sure to find out exactly what is included in the resort’s definition of “all-inclusive.” (More on that later!)

Matthew Kondrup, CTA, President and CEO of Matty K Travel Group, says, “It’s very important to read the fine print and consult a travel adviser to find the proper resort. There is no ‘one-size-fits-all.’”
