Bookvip Gulf Shores 2023

Invest less, take a trip more … right?! If you like to make your holiday travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might discover yourself thinking about a getaway package promotional offer. Know that these advertising trip plan business are not at all equal.

After the let down of our current remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply got off the phone from attempting to schedule the rest of our trip package with them (some time in Florida). Let’s just say that will not be occurring. We are just going to forget and consume the cost about it.

From here on out, we will be scheduling trip bundles through BookVIP. If you click over to their website, you will see that it is complete of the cheapest vacation plans to some of the most popular destinations.

Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was amazing. Possibly the Dreams spoiled us. This location was off-hook. It was everything we had hoped for and then some.

One quick note … We have just utilized BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Reasoning tells me that not every resort holiday bundle is going to offer a comparable experience. It actually is all going to boil down to the research study you put in.

Investigating the properties offered on BookVIP can be a little bit of an obstacle. They do not promote the actual name of the resorts. Instead, they use fake names. But if you truly want to sleuth out the location you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the images will expose the true identity of the residential or commercial property you are thinking about. We didn’t trouble going that far. There was lots of information on the BookVIP website to assist us feel comfy with making our booking.

You understand ahead of time if the dates you desire to take a trip are offered. There is time to compare the dining establishments and features. This is a big contrast to the advertising vacation plan sales calls I will talk about in the next area.

When you are ready to make your reservation with BookVIP, just be gotten ready for a few extra resort fees and taxes. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive expense around $720 after whatever was said and done. In our case, part of the added fee was to cover tips for the resort personnel. After the experience we had, we discovered this to be well worth it.

OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Gulf Shores
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. We very likely would not have gotten involved in another advertising offer if this had actually been our first experience. It was that bad.

Are you on the calling lists? After our very first marketing resort stay, we began getting call offering vacation bundles to numerous locations. That is how we wound up with a vacation package including our latest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief remain in Florida and in other places.

These travel sales calls are always a high-pressure situation unless you simply hang up. Say no adequate times and they will keep dropping the price to where it actually sounds like a good deal. If they capture your interest and you choose to acquire, it is needed that you do so before completion of the phone call. There isn’t much time to look into the getaway homes they are offering. You may have a few seconds to quickly bring up some pictures but that has to do with it. A photo deserves a thousand words, however not worth nearly as much as having the ability to check out a few evaluations.

They drew us in with a remain in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the distance to Belize) and a long time in Florida (hey there, sailboat shopping!). So we pulled the trigger and purchased a package. However using it, that is a whole various story.

Premier Travel Resorts does not make it easy to actually use the holiday time. There is a great deal of small print that makes travel preparation very tough and possibly a lot more expensive. They don’t reveal these information during the sales call.

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

Nevertheless, when you contact us to request your favored dates, they require you to submit a long type requiring all the info that they already have. You then have 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 troublesome.

Planning inexpensive flights, or offered Airbnb stays in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts holiday package is really tough. In our case, the Airbnb we wished to stay at after our remain at the resort was booked by the time Premier Travel Resorts returned to us.

Our bundle consisted of a remain in Orlando and a remain in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts needs that those stays be back to back or one month apart. So, in our case, using them on either end of a business journey we had actually prepared was not allowed.

We used the Cancun part of our trip plan, but we will not be utilizing the rest of it.

THE BAIT AND SWITCH CANCUN ‘ALL INCLUSIVE’ THROUGH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS
The room was unclean, the toilet was cracked, the lights flickered, and that is simply the beginning. You see, they put us up, not in among the high-end properties that they wished to sell us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the men at the nice residential or commercial property told us they called it. For real.

The one restaurant that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you ignore 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 ready to help us with our Spanish.

Twice the shock of the difference in the type of place we thought we would be remaining, we maximized it. We met some great people. Ate some excellent food. Took some great strolls on the golf course. And got our rental cars and truck a couple days early to go off and check out the location.

THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts need that you participate in a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their affordable rates. No biggie. We feel like that is worth it.

Premier Travel Resorts, however, requires that you participate in a marketing presentation during each stay. When they sold us the package, this is various from what we were informed. When you are staying someplace for just 2 nights is a huge piece of time, a two-hour sales pitch. They offered us 4 different stays, that suggests as much as 8 hours of moderately high-pressure sales! No thanks.

OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
