Bookvip Gatlinburg Reviews 2023

We are bargain hunters. Invest less, take a trip more … right?!Bookvip Gatlinburg Reviews… If you like to make your vacation travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might find yourself thinking about a holiday package promotional offer. You must be prepared. Know that these promotional vacation bundle business are not equivalent.

After the pulled down of our current remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply got off the phone from attempting to book the rest of our vacation bundle with them (a long time in Florida). Let’s simply say that will not be taking place. We are just going to consume the cost and forget about it.

From here on out, we will be scheduling vacation plans through BookVIP. Here’s why …

Undoubtedly, you’ve seen the Facebook sponsored posts. If you click over to their site, you will see that it has lots of the most affordable trip bundles to a few of the most popular locations. They have some seriously glamorous looking stays all over the world at some insane good costs.

Our very first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was incredible. Possibly the Dreams spoiled us.

One quick note … We have just utilized BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Reasoning tells me that not every resort getaway bundle is going to supply a comparable experience. It truly is all going to come down to the research you put in.

They don’t promote the actual name of the resorts. If you truly want to sleuth out the location you will be remaining a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the images will expose the true identity of the home you are thinking about. There was plenty of information on the BookVIP website to help us feel comfortable with making our booking.

What we love about booking with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. Schedule when you have done your research study and you are ready. You will understand what you are getting. If the dates you desire to travel are available, you know ahead of time. There is time to compare the restaurants and facilities. This is a big contrast to the promotional vacation bundle sales calls I will discuss in the next area.

When you are ready to make your booking with BookVIP, simply be prepared for a couple of extra resort charges and taxes. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive cost around $720 after everything was said and done. In our case, part of the added fee was to cover suggestions for the resort personnel. After the experience we had, we found this to be well worth it.

OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Gatlinburg Reviews
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the best. We extremely likely would not have actually taken part in another marketing deal if this had been our first experience. It was that bad.

Are you on the calling lists? After our first promotional resort stay, we began getting telephone call offering holiday bundles to various destinations. That is how we wound up with a getaway package 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. Say no adequate times and they will keep dropping the rate to where it really seems like a bargain. If they record your interest and you choose to acquire, it is needed that you do so prior to completion of the telephone call. There isn’t much time to look into the holiday properties they are providing. You might have a couple of seconds to quickly pull up some pictures however that has to do with it. A picture deserves a thousand words, however unworthy nearly as much as having the ability to read a couple of evaluations.

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!). So we pulled the trigger and bought a bundle. However using it, that is an entire different story.

Premier Travel Resorts does not make it easy to actually utilize the vacation time. There is a great deal of small print that makes travel planning extremely challenging and possibly a lot more expensive. They do not expose these details throughout the sales call.

IF YOU PURCHASE A HOLIDAY BUNDLE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS, THIS IS WHAT YOU MUST BE PREPARED FOR …
You can just reserve your dates 45-90 days ahead of time. Okay, reasonable enough.

When you call to ask for your preferred dates, they need you to fill out a long type requiring all the info that they already have. You then need to wait about a week to see if your dates are even readily available. Unless your itinerary will only include your remain at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel very inconvenient.

Preparation budget friendly flights, or available Airbnb stays in conjunction with your Premier Travel Resorts getaway package is very hard. In our case, the Airbnb we wished to remain at after our remain at the resort was scheduled by the time Premier Travel Resorts got back to us.

Our bundle included a remain in Orlando and a remain in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts requires that those stays be back to back or 1 month apart. In our case, using them on either end of an organization journey we had actually prepared was not enabled.

We used the Cancun portion of our getaway package, but we will not be utilizing the rest of it.

THE BAIT AND SWITCH CANCUN ‘ALL INCLUSIVE’ THROUGH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS
The room was filthy, the toilet was cracked, the lights flickered, which is just the beginning. You see, they put us up, not in one of the high-end homes that they wished to sell us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the people at the great residential or commercial property informed us they called it. For real.

Now, to be fair, Laguna Suites wasn’t all bad. The one dining establishment that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you overlook the ac system leaking into our food) was really a great experience. They altered the menu every night, including foods from different parts of Mexico. And the staff was fantastic. Extremely friendly and accommodating. And very ready to assist us with our Spanish.

When over the shock of the difference in the kind of location we thought we would be remaining, we made the most of it. And chose up our rental automobile 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 reduced prices. No biggie. We feel like that is worth it.

Premier Travel Resorts, however, requires that you attend an advertising presentation during each stay. This is various from what we were told when they offered us the plan.

OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY RANT
