Spend less, travel more … right?! If you like to make your trip travel dollar stretch, then like us, you may discover yourself thinking about a getaway package promotional deal. Know that these promotional trip bundle companies are not at all equal.
After the pulled down of our current remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I just got off the phone from attempting to schedule the rest of our holiday package with them (a long time in Florida). Let’s just say that will not be taking place. We are simply going to forget and consume the expense about it.
From here on out, we will be reserving vacation packages through BookVIP. Here’s why …
Certainly, you’ve seen the Facebook sponsored posts. You will see that it is complete of the most affordable vacation bundles 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 good prices.
Our very first all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was fantastic. Possibly 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 tells me that not every resort getaway bundle is going to offer a comparable experience. It truly is all going to come down to the research study you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
Researching the residential or commercial properties offered on BookVIP can be a little an obstacle. They don’t advertise the actual name of the resorts. Instead, they use fake names. If you truly desire to sleuth out the place you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the photos will reveal the true identity of the property you are thinking about. We didn’t trouble going that far. There was plenty of information on the BookVIP site to help us feel comfy with making our reservation.
You understand ahead of time if the dates you desire to take a trip are readily available. There is time to compare the amenities and dining establishments. This is a huge contrast to the promotional getaway bundle sales calls I will talk about in the next area.
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 additional charge was to cover pointers for the resort personnel.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip.Com Hoteles En Santa Cruz Cal
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. If this had been our first experience, we very likely would not have participated in another promotional deal. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our first promotional resort stay, we started getting telephone call providing holiday packages to different locations. That is how we ended up with a holiday plan including our most recent Cancun all inclusive plus a couple short stays in Florida and somewhere else.
These travel sales calls are constantly a high-pressure circumstance unless you simply hang up. State no sufficient times and they will keep dropping the price to where it in fact sounds like a great offer. There isn’t much time to research the trip residential or commercial properties they are using.
They drew us in with a remain in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the distance to Belize) and a long time in Florida (hello, sailboat shopping!). So we pulled the trigger and purchased a bundle. Using it, that is a whole various story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it easy to really utilize the getaway time. There is a great deal of fine print that makes travel preparation extremely challenging and potentially a lot more costly. They don’t expose these information throughout the sales call.
THIS IS WHAT YOU OUGHT TO BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only just schedule dates 45-90 days ahead of time if YOU PURCHASE A TRIP PLAN WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS. Okay, fair enough.
When you call to ask for your favored dates, they require you to fill out a long form needing all the information that they already have. You then need to wait about a week to see if your dates are even offered. Unless your travel plans will just include your stay at their resort, this makes planning the rest of your travel very inconvenient.
Preparation affordable flights, or offered Airbnb stays in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts holiday package is really hard. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to stay at after our remain at the resort was scheduled by the time Premier Travel Resorts returned to us.
Our package consisted of a stay in Orlando and a remain in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts requires that those stays be back to back or one month apart. So, in our case, using them on either end of an organization trip we had prepared was not allowed.
We utilized the Cancun part of our vacation plan, 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 residential or commercial properties that they wanted to offer us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the men at the good property informed us they called it.
Now, to be reasonable, Laguna Suites wasn’t all bad. The one dining establishment that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you overlook the a/c unit dripping into our food) was actually a good experience. They altered the menu every night, including foods from different parts of Mexico. And the personnel was remarkable. Extremely friendly and accommodating. And really ready to help us with our Spanish.
As soon as over the shock of the distinction in the kind of location we believed we would be remaining, we made the many of it. And selected up our rental vehicle a couple days early to go off and explore 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 affordable costs. No biggie. We seem like that deserves it.
Premier Travel Resorts, however, requires that you go to a marketing discussion during each stay. When they offered us the package, this is various from what we were informed. When you are staying somewhere for just two nights is a huge chunk of time, a two-hour sales pitch. They sold 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
