Meal Plan

Hotel/Resort – Meal Plan

EP (European plan):- The European Plan, abbreviated as EP in hotel price listings, indicates that the quoted rate is strictly only for lodging/accommodation and does not include any kind of meals. Any food provided by the hotel on the demand of you is billed separately and paid on checkout. Taxes and tips are usually additional as well and paid separately as well. The European Plan (EP) is not limited to Europe hotels. Hotel, resort, and many Properties all over the world offer it.

Room Only: – This is the same as the EP plan. Indicates that the quoted rate is strictly for lodging/accommodation and does not include any kind of meals.

Room with Breakfast: – Breakfast is the first meal of a Day. One can pick from the buffet by own self-choices of bread, coffee, and tea. You can also enjoy your breakfast with some fruit juice. Breakfast is complimentary with hotels.

CP (Continental plan):- The Continental Plan, which is abbreviated as CP in hotel listings, means that the quoted rate includes breakfast on the premises for every guest who occupies a room overnight with CP plan. Normally this breakfast meal takes place in the hotel’s restaurant or in a dedicated breakfast room with a few tables and chairs with pre-decided hotel Menu Buffet. Typically a continental breakfast is set out buffet-style—meaning you have to get up, select what you want to eat, serve yourselves, and bring your food back to your table. At some place, you’ll also have to collect and arrange your own plates, cutlery, glasses, and napkins. There is no set limit on how much you can eat, until you satisfied your stomach, as long as you leave enough for the other guests. A continental plan breakfast array is usually only available during a span of several hours in the morning.

MAP (Modified American plan):- The Modified American Plan, sometimes abbreviated as MAP in hotel listings, means that the quoted rate includes two major meals a day, including breakfast and either lunch or dinner. In the Modified American plan, these meals are provided on site, and they usually are furnished in the hotel dining room.

Half Board: – provision of bed, breakfast, and one main meal at a hotel or staying property. If you stay at a hotel and have a half board, your breakfast and evening meal are included in the price of your stay at the hotel, but not your lunch. Half Board basis means that your accommodation, breakfast and one other meal – usually dinner – is included. Drinks are not part of the price you pay but you usually won’t be denied a glass of orange juice or coffee at breakfast if you opt for this package.

AP (American plan):- The American Plan, sometimes abbreviated as AP in hotels listings, means that the one night rate quoted by a hotel or resort includes three major meals a day, i.e. breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In the American plan, the meals are provided by the establishment’s kitchen and served on site, typically in the dining room or in a buffet. Some hotels offer guests the option of being on the American plans or paying à la Carte for the food consumed in their facility.

Full Board: – provision of accommodation and all meals at a hotel or staying property. Full Board means that breakfast, lunch and evening meals are included in the price but any drinks or snacks will cost you extra. That said Full Board still usually includes a basic range of drinks, like tea, juice, and coffee.

All Meals (Breakfast + Lunch + Dinner): – American plan (AP) – Includes three meals per day at the stay in a hotel, i.e. breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Travelers choosing a hotel in a remote location where there are not many restaurants — or none at all — need to stay at a hotel that offers an American plan. Meals plans typically do not include wine or cocktails.

All Inclusive: – A holiday in which all or most meals, drinks, and activities are included in the overall indicating price. All-Inclusive includes accommodations (and usually the hotel taxes), tips, meals, drinks (including alcoholic drinks), along with a variety of activities and nightly entertainment.
