Bookvip Bait And Switch 2023

We are deal hunters. Invest less, travel more … right?!Bookvip Bait And Switch… If you like to make your getaway travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might find yourself thinking about a trip package promotional deal. You need to be prepared. Know that these marketing vacation package companies are not at all equal.

After the let down of our current stay at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply left the phone from trying to reserve the remainder of our trip package with them (a long time in Florida). Let’s just state that will not be occurring. We are just going to consume the cost and forget about it.

From here on out, we will be scheduling trip bundles through BookVIP. Here’s why …

Surely, you’ve seen the Facebook sponsored posts. If you click over to their site, you will see that it is full of the least expensive getaway bundles to a few of the most popular destinations. They have some seriously elegant looking stays all over the world at some insane excellent costs.

Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was fantastic. Maybe the Dreams spoiled us.

One quick note … We have just used BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Reasoning tells me that not every resort getaway package is going to supply a similar experience. It truly is all going to come down to the research study you put in.

They don’t advertise the actual 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 images will reveal the real identity of the property you are considering. There was plenty of information on the BookVIP site to help us feel comfortable with making our reservation.

You understand ahead of time if the dates you desire to travel are offered. There is time to compare the features and restaurants. This is a huge contrast to the promotional getaway package sales calls I will talk about in the next section.

Just be prepared for a couple of extra resort costs and taxes when you are all set to make your appointment with BookVIP. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive expense around $720 after everything was said and done. In our case, part of the service charge was to cover tips for the resort staff. After the experience we had, we discovered this to be well worth it.

OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Bait And Switch
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. We really likely would not have gotten involved in another advertising deal if this had actually been our very first experience. It was that bad.

Are you on the calling lists? After our first marketing resort stay, we started getting telephone call offering getaway bundles to numerous destinations. That is how we ended up with a getaway package including our latest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple short remain in Florida and elsewhere.

These travel sales calls are constantly a high-pressure scenario unless you just hang up. Say no adequate times and they will keep dropping the price to where it actually seems like a bargain. If they capture your interest and you choose to buy, it is needed that you do so prior to completion of the telephone call. There isn’t much time to look into the vacation homes they are providing. You might have a couple of seconds to rapidly bring up some pictures but that has to do with it. A photo deserves a thousand words, however unworthy almost as much as being able to check out a couple of evaluations.

They drew us in with a stay in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the proximity to Belize) and some time in Florida (hello, sailboat shopping!). We pulled the trigger and bought a plan. Utilizing it, that is a whole different story.

Premier Travel Resorts does not make it easy to actually utilize the trip time. There is a lot of fine print that makes travel planning extremely difficult and possibly a lot more expensive. They don’t reveal these details during the sales call.

IF YOU ACQUIRE A HOLIDAY BUNDLE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS, THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO BE PREPARED FOR …
You can just reserve your dates 45-90 days ahead of time. Okay, fair enough.

Nevertheless, when you call to request your favored dates, they need you to complete a long kind requiring all the details that they already have. You then have to wait about a week to see if your dates are even readily available. Unless your itinerary will only consist of your stay at their resort, this makes planning the rest of your travel extremely troublesome.

Preparation budget-friendly flights, or readily available Airbnb remains in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts vacation plan is extremely challenging. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to remain at after our stay at the resort was reserved by the time Premier Travel Resorts got back to us.

Our bundle consisted of a remain in Orlando and a stay in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts needs that those stays be back to back or 30 days apart. So, in our case, utilizing them on either end of an organization journey we had actually planned was not permitted.

We used the Cancun part of our holiday package, but we won’t 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 residential or commercial properties that they wanted to sell us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the people at the nice residential or commercial property told us they called it.

Now, to be fair, Laguna Suites wasn’t all bad. The one dining establishment that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you overlook the air conditioning unit leaking into our food) was really a great experience. They changed up the menu every night, including foods from different parts of Mexico. And the staff was amazing. Really friendly and accommodating. And very willing to assist us with our Spanish.

Twice the shock of the distinction in the type of place we thought we would be staying, we took advantage of it. We fulfilled some nice individuals. Ate some excellent food. Took some nice strolls on the golf course. And got our rental car a couple days early to go off and explore the area.

THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts require that you participate in a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their discounted costs. No biggie. We feel like that deserves it.

Premier Travel Resorts, however, requires that you participate in a marketing presentation during each stay. This is various from what we were told when they offered us the plan.

OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
