Spend less, travel more … right?! If you like to make your trip travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might discover yourself thinking about a trip plan marketing offer. Know that these advertising vacation bundle business are not at all equal.
After the let down of our current stay at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply got off the phone from trying to schedule the rest of our holiday package with them (some time in Florida). Let’s just say that will not be occurring. We are simply going to eat the expense and forget about it.
From here on out, we will be reserving getaway packages through BookVIP. Here’s why …
Undoubtedly, you have actually seen the Facebook sponsored posts. If you click over to their site, you will see that it has plenty of the least expensive holiday plans to a few of the most popular locations. They have some seriously glamorous looking stays all over the world at some crazy good rates.
Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was remarkable. Maybe the Dreams ruined us. This place was off-hook. It was everything we had actually hoped for and then some.
One quick note … We have actually just used BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Logic informs me that not every resort holiday bundle is going to offer a comparable experience. It really is all going to boil down to the research study you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
Researching the properties offered on BookVIP can be a bit of a challenge. They do not advertise the real name of the resorts. Rather, they utilize phony 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 bother going that far. There was a lot of info on the BookVIP website to help us feel comfortable with making our booking.
What we love about reserving with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. Book when you have actually done your research study and you are ready. You will understand what you are getting. If the dates you desire to travel are offered, you know ahead of time. There is time to compare the restaurants and amenities. This is a big contrast to the promotional vacation plan sales calls I will talk about in the next section.
When you are prepared to make your appointment with BookVIP, just be prepared for a few additional resort charges and taxes. In our case, part of the extra charge was to cover ideas for the resort personnel.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Com Reservations
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. We really likely would not have actually participated in another marketing 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 started getting call offering trip plans to different locations. That is how we wound up with a trip package including our latest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief remain in Florida and elsewhere.
These travel sales calls are always a high-pressure situation unless you just hang up. State no enough times and they will keep dropping the price to where it really sounds like a great deal. There isn’t much time to research the trip homes they are using.
They drew us in with a stay in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the distance to Belize) and some time in Florida (hey there, sailboat shopping!). We pulled the trigger and bought a bundle. Utilizing it, that is an entire different story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to really utilize the vacation time. There is a lot of small print that makes travel preparation really hard and possibly a lot more costly. They do not reveal these information during the sales call.
IF YOU PURCHASE A VACATION BUNDLE 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, reasonable enough.
However, when you call to request for your favored dates, they require you to complete a long type requiring all the details that they already have. You then need to wait about a week to see if your dates are even readily available. Unless your travel plans will only consist of your remain at their resort, this makes planning the rest of your travel extremely troublesome.
Planning inexpensive flights, or available Airbnb remains in conjunction with your Premier Travel Resorts trip plan is extremely hard. 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 consisted of a stay in Orlando and a stay in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts needs that those stays be back to back or thirty days apart. So, in our case, using them on either end of a company journey we had prepared was not permitted.
We utilized the Cancun part of our trip package, but we will not 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 properties that they wanted to offer us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the men at the nice home informed us they called it.
The one restaurant that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you neglect the air conditioner dripping into our food) was really a nice experience. They altered up the menu every night, featuring foods from different parts of Mexico. And very willing to assist us with our Spanish.
Twice the shock of the difference in the sort of place we believed we would be remaining, we maximized it. We met some great individuals. Consumed some terrific food. Took some good walks on the golf course. And got our rental car a couple days early to go off and check out the location.
THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts need that you attend a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their discounted prices. No biggie. We feel like that deserves it.
Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, needs that you attend a promotional discussion throughout each stay. This is various from what we were told when they sold us the plan. When you are remaining somewhere for only two nights is a substantial piece of time, a two-hour sales pitch. They sold us four various stays, that implies as much as eight hours of moderately high-pressure sales! No thanks.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
