What do you prefer when booking your holiday? Self-catering vs an all-inclusive holiday? Are you a traveller who likes to have the option to cook your food? Or do you like arriving at your destination, putting your feet up and having everything taken care of?

Do your homework
Research and do a detailed cost estimate; there will always be things you don’t think about regarding self-catering. There is a misconception that a self-catering holiday is less demanding on the pocket. Still, often you will end up spending more.
Let us explore what to consider when deciding on the type of holiday you are looking for with some helpful tips and recommendations.
Commonly the most expensive item of any holiday. Direct flights are always a win as stopovers can be exhausting and mean your cutting short on your holiday days. Always remember to check when booking flights, whether direct or not.
Currently, there are no international flights to Inhambane, and the only flights to Inhambane are domestic flights within Mozambique. It is not easy to source flights without the assistance of a travel agent & when looking for a cost-effective flight; a stopover is inventible.
Charter flights are often provided through resorts and hotels, meaning you will always fly direct.
Depending on where you are travelling in Mozambique, the transfers to your hotel or resort are not something you can plan upon arrival. Pre-arranged transfers are imperative unless travelling in your vehicle. Remember to ensure you have read up on all the requirements for entering Mozambique at the border.
Finding the perfect place to stay is vital in any holiday planning. What do we look for when finding accommodation?
- Location of accommodation
- Available accommodation
- Room size and set up
- Room amenities, e.g. fridge
- Hotel activities, e.g. water sports
- Hotel facilities, e.g. restaurant
Self-catering accommodation will often not have a restaurant or bar available onsite, and rooms will have limited amenities. Determine what facilities they have onsite such as refrigeration, cutlery & seating, to enjoy your meals.
Packing for a self-catering holiday is remembering everything from toilet paper to the kitchen sink.
Food & alcohol
Indulging and trying new and local cuisine is a must on any holiday. Sipping cocktails and socializing is also something that is always enjoyed. Stocking up on food items or alcohol can be time consuming & costly when you are new to a foreign country.
If you opt for a self-catering holiday, you will need a bigger vehicle to travel on the roads, specifically in Mozambique and be knowledgeable about the area.
A crucial consideration is the alcohol restrictions when entering Mozambique. Confiscations can be expected if the standard rules are not met and alcohol is costly within the area.
Advantages of an inclusive package holiday
A package holiday with a per-person cost can be seen as exuberant but once broken down; you can see the value for money is excellent. Vista Do Mar is the ideal Mozambiquan resort offering fantastic packages for families, groups and couples.
