Beginning travelers, purchasing vouchers to resorts, are wondering what full board means. This is one of the five main forms of food in hotels. Experienced tourists do not always prefer full board, although at first glance this form is quite attractive. How cost-effective it is for specific travelers is worth figuring out. In general, in the hotel industry, a boarding house means a form of food that is included in the cost of living. Each type of food in resort hotels has an abbreviation. These are international designations that will be relevant in any country, wherever you go.
Meals in hotels
Firstly, you can opt out of meals, that is, use only the number (OB or RO). Secondly, you can only take breakfast (BB), which is usually a buffet with hot and cold dishes (meals vary greatly from country to country). Thirdly, half board, which can be from breakfast and lunchor from breakfast and dinner (HB). Fourthly, meals are full board, that is, you take three meals a day (FB). And finally, "all inclusive" (AI), that is, you take three meals a day, snacks (lunch, afternoon tea, barbecue, etc.) and drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) in unlimited quantities.
Full board main meals
This service includes three meals a day: breakfast, lunch and dinner. At breakfast, vacationers get hot coffee or tea, and in some hotels they also get juice. But at lunch and dinner, drinks are charged separately. There is an extended full board option when non-alcoholic drinks are included in the diet, but these are rare cases. More often there are jugs of water on the tables, the rest must be paid extra. Full board with 4 meals a day is possible. All these details must be checked with the tour operator who sells you a ticket. In addition, it is worth knowing that, as a rule, food and drinks are not supposed to be brought into hotels, so that vacationers can purchase them in local establishments. Of course, you will not be searched, therefore, you simply should not advertise your actions.
Hotel Service Forms
Service in various hotels involves two forms: buffet and waiter service. It is impossible to choose them, since this is the accepted service procedure in a particular hotel. The most common buffet, especially in the resorts of Turkey and Egypt. Vacationersserve themselves. Dishes are on one large table on large plates and trays. Everyone comes up and puts on himself as much as he wants. Drinks can be served either on site or at the bar. The second option is more typical for European hotels. In this case, visitors are served by a waiter, but according to the established menu. But it is worth noting that there are always several positions, that is, there is a choice.
When to choose full board
This form of food should be chosen if you want to spend your vacation passively, but are not interested in hotel drinks, that is, you want to walk around local restaurants and bars on your own or do not drink alcohol. Three meals a day frees you from spending money on food. If you plan to go on excursions, as well as independently travel around the area, it is better to choose only breakfast or half board. And during trips and hikes, you will independently choose an institution where you would like to try this or that dish of one of the cuisines of the world. Full board will be relevant if you are planning a beach holiday near the hotel without excursions.
