We are bargain hunters. Spend less, travel more … right?!Bookvip.Cp… If you like to make your getaway travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might find yourself considering a holiday plan promotional deal. You ought to be prepared. Know that these promotional holiday bundle companies are not equivalent.
After the pulled down of our recent remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply got off the phone from trying to reserve the rest of our vacation plan with them (a long time in Florida). Let’s just state that will not be happening. We are simply going to consume the cost and forget about it.
From here on out, we will be reserving holiday plans through BookVIP. If you click over to their site, you will see that it is complete of the most inexpensive vacation packages to some of the most popular locations.
Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was fantastic. Perhaps the Dreams spoiled us. This location was off-hook. It was whatever we had expected and after that some.
One quick note … We have just utilized BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Logic informs me that not every resort getaway plan is going to provide a comparable experience. It truly is all going to come down to the research you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
Looking into the properties offered on BookVIP can be a little bit of a difficulty. They don’t advertise the real name of the resorts. Rather, they utilize fake names. If you actually desire to sleuth out the place you will be remaining 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. We didn’t bother going that far. There was plenty of details on the BookVIP website to assist us feel comfortable with making our reservation.
You understand ahead of time if the dates you want to take a trip are offered. There is time to compare the facilities and dining establishments. This is a huge contrast to the advertising vacation package sales calls I will talk about in the next area.
When you are ready to make your appointment with BookVIP, simply be prepared for a few extra resort charges and taxes. In our case, part of the extra charge was to cover pointers for the resort staff.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip.Cp
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. If this had been our very first experience, we most likely would not have actually taken part in another promotional offer. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our very first advertising resort stay, we began getting phone calls providing vacation bundles to numerous destinations. That is how we wound up with a vacation package including our most recent Cancun all inclusive plus a couple short stays in Florida and somewhere else.
These travel sales calls are always a high-pressure situation unless you just hang up. State no adequate times and they will keep dropping the cost to where it in fact sounds like an excellent offer. There isn’t much time to research the holiday residential or commercial properties they are offering.
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!). So we shot and bought a package. But using it, that is an entire different story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it easy to actually use the getaway time. There is a lot of fine print that makes travel planning very difficult and potentially a lot more pricey. They don’t expose these details throughout the sales call.
IF YOU BUY A TRIP BUNDLE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS, THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO BE PREPARED FOR …
You can just book your dates 45-90 days ahead of time. Okay, fair enough.
When you call to ask for your favored dates, they require you to fill out a long kind needing all the information that they currently have. You then need to wait about a week to see if your dates are even readily available. Unless your travel plans will just include your remain at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel very troublesome.
Preparation cost effective flights, or available Airbnb stays in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts getaway package is very tough. In our case, the Airbnb we wished to remain at after our stay at the resort was reserved by the time Premier Travel Resorts returned to us.
Our package consisted of a stay 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, utilizing them on either end of an organization journey we had actually prepared was not allowed.
We utilized the Cancun portion of our trip plan, 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 high-end residential or commercial properties that they desired to offer us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the men at the great property informed us they called it.
The one restaurant that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you overlook the air conditioner dripping into our food) was actually a nice experience. They changed up the menu every night, featuring foods from various parts of Mexico. And extremely willing to assist us with our Spanish.
Once over the shock of the difference in the kind of location we thought we would be remaining, we made the most of it. And picked up our rental car a couple days early to go off and explore the area.
THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts need that you attend 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 attend a marketing presentation during each stay. This is different from what we were informed when they sold us the package. A two-hour sales pitch when you are staying somewhere for just two nights is a big portion of time. They offered us 4 various stays, that suggests up to 8 hours of reasonably high-pressure sales! No thanks.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
