The €142m All-Inclusive Problem

THE new prime minister of Greece has declared war on the country’s all-inclusive resorts – a move which will reinvigorate the will of those who want them banned in Tenerife.

All-you-can-eat buffets and unlimited drinks by the pool are under threat, even though that particular tourism sector brings in £1.5billion a year for the Greek economy.

And with so many all-inclusive hotels here on the Island also popular with the British, could Greece PM Alexis Tsipras have sparked the first hint of a revolution throughout Europe’s tourist industry?

The Canarian Weekly estimates that over 140 million euros is being lost to the Tenerife economy through all-inclusive packages which drive people out of local bars, restaurants and businesses.
