We are bargain hunters. Spend less, take a trip more … right?!Adult Only Riviera Beach Resort From Bookvip Reviw… If you like to make your getaway travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might find yourself thinking about a getaway package marketing offer. But you must be prepared. Know that these promotional trip bundle companies are not equivalent.
After the pulled down of our current remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply left the phone from attempting to schedule the remainder of our vacation package with them (some time in Florida). Let’s simply state that will not be happening. We are simply going to consume the expense and forget about it.
From here on out, we will be booking holiday plans through BookVIP. Here’s why …
Surely, you have actually seen the Facebook sponsored posts. You will see that it is full of the most affordable trip plans to some of the most popular destinations if you click over to their site. They have some seriously glamorous looking stays all over the world at some crazy excellent prices.
Our very first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was fantastic. Maybe the Dreams ruined us.
One quick note … We have actually only utilized BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Reasoning tells me that not every resort trip plan is going to offer a similar experience. It truly is all going to come down to the research study you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
They don’t market the real name of the resorts. If you truly want to sleuth out the place you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the pictures will reveal the true identity of the property you are considering. There was plenty of information on the BookVIP site to assist us feel comfortable with making our reservation.
You understand ahead of time if the dates you desire to take a trip are offered. There is time to compare the facilities and dining establishments. This is a big contrast to the promotional vacation bundle sales calls I will talk about in the next area.
Just be prepared for a few additional resort fees and taxes when you are all set to make your reservation with BookVIP. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive cost around $720 after everything was said and done. In our case, part of the surcharge was to cover ideas for the resort personnel. After the experience we had, we discovered this to be well worth it.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Adult Only Riviera Beach Resort From Bookvip Reviw
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the best. If this had actually been our very first experience, we highly likely would not have actually participated in another advertising deal. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our very first advertising resort stay, we started getting phone calls providing holiday bundles to numerous locations. That is how we wound up with a vacation bundle including our latest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple short remain in Florida and elsewhere.
These travel sales calls are always a high-pressure scenario unless you simply hang up. Say no sufficient times and they will keep dropping the price to where it in fact sounds like a bargain. It is required that you do so before the end of the phone call if they capture your interest and you decide to purchase. There isn’t much time to look into the holiday homes they are offering. You may have a few seconds to quickly bring up some photos however that is about it. A picture deserves a thousand words, but unworthy almost as much as having the ability to read a few reviews.
They drew us in with a stay in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the distance to Belize) and a long time in Florida (hey there, sailboat shopping!). We pulled the trigger and purchased a bundle. However utilizing it, that is an entire various story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to really use the trip time. There is a lot of fine print that makes travel planning extremely hard and potentially a lot more pricey. They do not reveal these information throughout the sales call.
IF YOU PURCHASE A GETAWAY BUNDLE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS, THIS IS WHAT YOU OUGHT TO BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only schedule your dates 45-90 days ahead of time. Okay, reasonable enough.
When you call to ask for your favored dates, they need you to fill out a long kind needing all the details that they currently have. You then need to wait about a week to see if your dates are even offered. Unless your itinerary will only consist of your remain at their resort, this makes planning the rest of your travel really inconvenient.
Planning budget-friendly flights, or readily available Airbnb stays in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts trip bundle is extremely challenging. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to stay at after our stay at the resort was reserved by the time Premier Travel Resorts returned to us.
Our package included a remain in Orlando and a stay in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts needs that those stays be back to back or one month apart. So, in our case, utilizing them on either end of a service trip we had planned was not enabled.
We utilized the Cancun portion of our holiday plan, but we will not be utilizing the rest of it.
THE BAIT AND SWITCH CANCUN ‘ALL INCLUSIVE’ THROUGH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS
You see, they put us up, not in one of the luxury properties that they wanted to offer us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the guys at the good residential or commercial property told us they called it.
The one dining establishment that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you overlook the air conditioner leaking into our food) was actually a good experience. They changed up the menu every night, including foods from various parts of Mexico. And very willing to help us with our Spanish.
When over the shock of the distinction in the kind of location we thought we would be staying, we made the most of it. And selected up our rental vehicle a couple days early to go off and check out the area.
THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts require that you go to a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their affordable prices. No biggie. We feel like that is worth it.
Premier Travel Resorts, however, requires that you attend an advertising presentation throughout each stay. This is various from what we were told when they sold us the package.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY RANT
