Invest less, take a trip more … right?! If you like to make your vacation travel dollar stretch, then like us, you may discover yourself considering a holiday package marketing offer. Know that these promotional holiday plan business are not at all equivalent.
After the pulled down of our recent remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I just left the phone from trying to book the remainder of our vacation plan with them (a long time in Florida). Let’s just say that will not be occurring. We are simply going to consume the cost and forget about it.
From here on out, we will be reserving trip packages through BookVIP. If you click over to their website, you will see that it is full of the least expensive trip plans to some of the most popular destinations.
Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was remarkable. Possibly the Dreams ruined us. This place was off-hook. It was whatever we had expected and after that some.
One fast note … We have only used BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Reasoning informs me that not every resort trip bundle is going to offer a comparable experience. It actually is all going to boil down to the research study you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
They don’t advertise the real name of the resorts. If you really desire to sleuth out the place you will be remaining a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the photos will expose the true identity of the residential or commercial property you are considering. There was plenty of details on the BookVIP site to help 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 take a trip are available, you know 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 area.
When you are ready to make your reservation with BookVIP, just be gotten ready for a few extra resort costs and taxes. 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 surcharge 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 Mexico
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the best. We extremely likely would not have participated in another advertising offer if this had been our very first experience. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our very first marketing resort stay, we began getting telephone call using getaway plans to various destinations. That is how we ended up with a vacation plan including our most recent Cancun all inclusive plus a couple short remain in Florida and elsewhere.
These travel sales calls are constantly a high-pressure situation unless you just hang up. Say no enough times and they will keep dropping the rate to where it really sounds like a good deal. There isn’t much time to investigate the vacation properties they are providing.
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 (hi, sailboat shopping!). So we shot and bought a bundle. Using it, that is an entire different story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it easy to in fact use the getaway time. There is a lot of fine print that makes travel preparation very challenging and potentially a lot more pricey. They don’t expose these information throughout the sales call.
THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only just book dates 45-90 days ahead of time if YOU BUY A TRIP BUNDLE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS. Okay, reasonable enough.
When you call to ask for your favored dates, they need you to fill out a long form needing all the info 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 include your remain at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel really troublesome.
Planning economical flights, or offered Airbnb remains in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts getaway package is very challenging. In our case, the Airbnb we wished to remain at after our stay at the resort was reserved by the time Premier Travel Resorts got back to us.
Our package included a stay in Orlando and a stay in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts requires that those stays be back to back or thirty days apart. So, in our case, using them on either end of a business journey we had planned was not allowed.
We used the Cancun portion of our vacation package, however 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 properties that they desired to offer us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the guys at the good property told us they called it.
The one restaurant that was consisted of in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you neglect the air conditioner dripping into our food) was actually a great experience. They altered up the menu every night, including foods from various parts of Mexico. And extremely ready to help us with our Spanish.
Once over the shock of the distinction in the type of place we thought we would be staying, we took advantage of it. We fulfilled some good individuals. Ate some fantastic food. Took some nice walks on the golf course. And got our rental vehicle a couple days early to go off and explore the area.
THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts require that you attend a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their discounted rates. No biggie. We seem like that is worth it.
Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, requires that you attend an advertising discussion during each stay. When they offered us the package, this is different from what we were informed. When you are staying somewhere for only 2 nights is a huge portion of time, a two-hour sales pitch. They offered us four various stays, that indicates approximately 8 hours of moderately high-pressure sales! No thanks.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
