Invest less, travel more … right?! If you like to make your vacation travel dollar stretch, then like us, you may discover yourself thinking about a vacation package advertising deal. Know that these promotional getaway bundle business are not at all equal.
After the pulled down of our recent stay at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I just got off the phone from trying to book the remainder of our holiday package with them (some time in Florida). Let’s simply say that will not be taking place. We are just going to eat the cost and forget about it.
From here on out, we will be booking trip bundles through BookVIP. If you click over to their website, you will see that it is complete of the least expensive getaway packages to some of the most popular destinations.
Our very first all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was incredible. Maybe the Dreams ruined us. This location was off-hook. It was whatever we had wished for and after that some.
One fast note … We have only utilized BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Reasoning informs me that not every resort vacation bundle is going to offer a comparable experience. It truly is all going to boil down to the research you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
They do not promote the actual name of the resorts. If you actually want to sleuth out the place you will be remaining a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the images will reveal the true identity of the property you are considering. There was plenty of info on the BookVIP website to help us feel comfy with making our appointment.
You understand ahead of time if the dates you want to travel are readily available. There is time to compare the restaurants and facilities. This is a big contrast to the promotional vacation bundle sales calls I will talk about in the next area.
Simply 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 whatever was stated and done. In our case, part of the added fee was to cover suggestions for the resort personnel. After the experience we had, we discovered this to be well worth it.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Com Reviews Yelp
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the best. We really likely would not have actually participated in another advertising offer if this had actually been our very first experience. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our first promotional resort stay, we began getting telephone call providing holiday packages to various locations. That is how we wound up with a getaway bundle including our newest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief remain in Florida and somewhere else.
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 cost to where it in fact seems like a good deal. If they record your interest and you choose to purchase, it is needed that you do so before completion of the telephone call. There isn’t much time to look into the holiday residential or commercial properties they are providing. You might have a few seconds to quickly pull up some images however that is about it. An image deserves a thousand words, however not worth nearly as much as having the ability to check out a couple of 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 (hello, sailboat shopping!). We pulled the trigger and purchased a bundle. But utilizing it, that is an entire various story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to actually use the trip time. There is a great deal of fine print that makes travel planning extremely challenging and potentially a lot more expensive. They do not reveal these details during the sales call.
IF YOU BUY A VACATION PACKAGE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS, THIS IS WHAT YOU MUST BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only reserve your dates 45-90 days ahead of time. Okay, reasonable enough.
Nevertheless, when you contact us to request for your favored dates, they require you to submit a long type requiring 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 travel plans will just consist of your remain at their resort, this makes planning the rest of your travel very bothersome.
Preparation cost effective flights, or readily available Airbnb remains in conjunction with your Premier Travel Resorts holiday package is really hard. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to remain at after our remain at the resort was booked by the time Premier Travel Resorts returned to us.
Our bundle included a remain in Orlando and a stay in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts requires that those stays be back to back or one month apart. In our case, using them on either end of a service journey we had planned was not allowed.
We used the Cancun portion of our holiday bundle, however 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 wanted to sell us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the people at the nice home told us they called it.
The one dining establishment that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you neglect the air conditioner dripping into our food) was really a nice experience. They changed up the menu every night, featuring foods from different parts of Mexico. And very willing to assist us with our Spanish.
Once over the shock of the difference in the kind of place we thought we would be staying, we took advantage of it. We satisfied some nice individuals. Ate some terrific food. Took some nice walks on the golf course. And picked up our rental car a couple days early to go off and check out the location.
THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts require that you go to a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their affordable prices. No biggie. We seem like that is worth it.
Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, needs that you participate in an advertising discussion during each stay. When they sold us the plan, this is various from what we were told. A two-hour sales pitch when you are staying somewhere for just 2 nights is a big chunk of time. They offered us 4 different stays, that suggests as much as eight hours of reasonably high-pressure sales! No thanks.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY RANT
