Invest less, travel more … right?! If you like to make your trip travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might find yourself considering a holiday plan marketing offer. Know that these promotional trip package business are not at all equivalent.
After the let down of our recent remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I just left the phone from trying to schedule the rest of our getaway package with them (some time in Florida). Let’s simply say that will not be occurring. We are simply going to consume the expense and forget about it.
From here on out, we will be booking getaway packages through BookVIP. Here’s why …
Undoubtedly, you have actually seen the Facebook sponsored posts. You will see that it is complete of the cheapest holiday 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 insane great prices.
Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was fantastic. Maybe the Dreams spoiled us.
One fast note … We have only used BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Logic informs me that not every resort trip plan is going to offer 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 market the actual name of the resorts. If you really want to sleuth out the location you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the pictures will expose the true identity of the residential or commercial property you are thinking about. There was plenty of details on the BookVIP site to assist us feel comfortable with making our appointment.
You understand ahead of time if the dates you desire to take a trip are readily available. There is time to compare the dining establishments and features. This is a big contrast to the marketing getaway package sales calls I will talk about in the next area.
Just be prepared for a few extra resort costs and taxes when you are ready to make your booking 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 pointers for the resort staff. After the experience we had, we discovered this to be well worth it.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip.Com Discounts
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the best. We really likely would not have gotten involved in another promotional deal if this had actually been our very first experience. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our very first advertising resort stay, we started getting call providing holiday plans to numerous destinations. That is how we wound up with a holiday bundle including our latest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief stays in Florida and elsewhere.
These travel sales calls are always a high-pressure circumstance unless you simply hang up. Say no enough times and they will keep dropping the rate to where it actually sounds like a good deal. It is needed 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 vacation homes they are using. You may have a few seconds to rapidly pull up some photos however that is about it. A photo is worth a thousand words, but unworthy nearly 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 proximity to Belize) and some time in Florida (hey there, sailboat shopping!). We pulled the trigger and purchased a plan. Using it, that is a whole various story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to in fact use the getaway time. There is a great deal of fine print that makes travel planning really tough and possibly a lot more costly. They don’t expose these details during the sales call.
THIS IS WHAT YOU MUST BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only reserve your dates 45-90 days ahead of time if YOU PURCHASE A HOLIDAY PACKAGE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS. Okay, reasonable enough.
Nevertheless, when you call to request your favored dates, they require you to complete a long type requiring all the information that they currently have. You then have to wait about a week to see if your dates are even offered. Unless your travel plans will just consist of your stay at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel very troublesome.
Preparation budget-friendly flights, or available Airbnb stays in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts vacation plan is extremely challenging. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to remain at after our remain at the resort was booked by the time Premier Travel Resorts got back to us.
Our plan consisted of a stay in Orlando and a remain in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts needs that those stays be back to back or 1 month apart. In our case, using them on either end of a business journey we had actually planned was not enabled.
We used the Cancun portion of our trip package, but we will not be using 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 desired to sell us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the people at the good property told us they called it.
The one dining establishment that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you ignore the air conditioner dripping into our food) was actually a great experience. They altered up the menu every night, featuring foods from various parts of Mexico. And extremely ready to help us with our Spanish.
Once over the shock of the difference in the kind of place we believed we would be remaining, we made the most of it. We met some nice individuals. Ate some excellent food. Took some good walks on the golf course. And got our rental cars and truck a couple days early to go off and check out the area.
THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts need that you attend a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their discounted rates. No biggie. We feel like that is worth it.
Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, requires that you attend a marketing discussion throughout each stay. This is different from what we were told when they sold us the bundle.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
