We are bargain hunters. Invest less, take a trip more … right?!Bookvip Com Cancun… If you like to make your holiday travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might find yourself thinking about a getaway package marketing offer. You should be prepared. Know that these advertising trip plan companies are not at all equivalent.
After the pulled down of our current remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply left the phone from trying to book the remainder of our vacation bundle with them (a long time in Florida). Let’s just state that will not be taking place. We are just going to forget and eat the cost about it.
From here on out, we will be scheduling vacation packages through BookVIP. If you click over to their site, you will see that it is full of the most affordable getaway bundles to some of the most popular destinations.
Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was incredible. Perhaps the Dreams ruined us. This location was off-hook. It was everything we had wished for and then some.
One fast note … We have just utilized BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Logic informs me that not every resort getaway bundle is going to provide a similar experience. It actually is all going to come down to the research study you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
They don’t promote the actual name of the resorts. If you really desire to sleuth out the location you will be remaining a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the photos will reveal the real identity of the property you are considering. There was plenty of details on the BookVIP website to assist us feel comfy with making our reservation.
What we like about scheduling with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. Schedule when you have actually done your research and you are ready. You will understand what you are getting. If the dates you want to travel are offered, you understand ahead of time. There is time to compare the restaurants and features. This is a huge contrast to the marketing holiday bundle sales calls I will speak about in the next section.
When you are all set to make your reservation with BookVIP, just be prepared for a couple of extra resort costs and taxes. In our case, part of the extra charge was to cover tips for the resort staff.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Com Cancun
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the best. We extremely likely would not have taken part in another marketing offer if this had actually been our very first experience. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our very first marketing resort stay, we started getting call offering trip packages to numerous locations. That is how we ended up with a getaway plan including our newest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple short stays in Florida and somewhere else.
These travel sales calls are always a high-pressure circumstance unless you just hang up. Say no adequate times and they will keep dropping the rate to where it really seems like a bargain. If they capture your interest and you choose to acquire, it is needed that you do so before completion of the telephone call. There isn’t much time to look into the holiday homes they are using. You might have a few seconds to quickly pull up some images but that has to do with it. A picture is worth a thousand words, however unworthy almost as much as being able to check out a few reviews.
They drew us in with a stay in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the proximity to Belize) and a long time in Florida (hi, sailboat shopping!). We pulled the trigger and purchased a plan. Utilizing it, that is an entire various story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to in fact utilize the getaway time. There is a lot of fine print that makes travel preparation really tough and possibly a lot more costly. They don’t reveal these information during the sales call.
IF YOU ACQUIRE A GETAWAY PLAN WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS, THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only reserve your dates 45-90 days ahead of time. Okay, fair enough.
When you call to ask for your preferred dates, they need you to fill out a long kind requiring all the details that they currently have. You then need to wait about a week to see if your dates are even readily available. Unless your travel plans will only include your remain at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel very inconvenient.
Planning cost effective flights, or offered Airbnb stays in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts holiday plan is really tough. In our case, the Airbnb we wished to stay at after our remain at the resort was booked by the time Premier Travel Resorts got back to us.
Our bundle included a remain in Orlando and a remain 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 a business journey we had planned was not allowed.
We utilized the Cancun portion of our vacation bundle, 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 high-end homes that they wanted to offer us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the men at the nice residential or commercial property told us they called it.
Now, to be reasonable, Laguna Suites wasn’t all bad. The one restaurant that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you overlook the air conditioning system leaking into our food) was in fact a great experience. They altered the menu every night, including foods from different parts of Mexico. And the staff was incredible. Extremely friendly and accommodating. And very going to assist 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 picked up our rental automobile a couple days early to go off and check out the area.
THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts need that you participate in a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their discounted rates. No biggie. We seem like that deserves it.
Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, needs that you go to an advertising presentation throughout each stay. This is different from what we were told when they sold us the plan. When you are staying somewhere for only two nights is a substantial chunk of time, a two-hour sales pitch. They offered us four different stays, that indicates as much as 8 hours of reasonably high-pressure sales! No thanks.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY RANT
