Spend less, take a trip more … right?! If you like to make your trip travel dollar stretch, then like us, you may find yourself thinking about a trip package promotional offer. Know that these advertising vacation bundle companies are not at all equal.
After the let down of our recent stay at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply got off the phone from attempting to schedule the remainder of our trip plan with them (some time in Florida). Let’s simply state that will not be happening. We are just going to consume the cost and forget about it.
From here on out, we will be scheduling getaway packages through BookVIP. Here’s why …
Surely, you have actually seen the Facebook sponsored posts. You will see that it is complete of the most affordable holiday packages to some of the most popular destinations if you click over to their site. They have some seriously luxurious looking stays all over the world at some insane excellent costs.
Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was amazing. Perhaps the Dreams ruined us. This place was off-hook. It was whatever we had actually expected and then 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 getaway package 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?
They don’t advertise the real name of the resorts. If you actually want to sleuth out the location you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the images will reveal the real identity of the property you are considering. There was plenty of details on the BookVIP website to help us feel comfortable with making our appointment.
You know ahead of time if the dates you want to take a trip are readily available. There is time to compare the restaurants and amenities. This is a big contrast to the marketing holiday bundle 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 couple of additional resort fees and taxes. In our case, part of the extra charge was to cover suggestions for the resort staff.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Las Vegas Reviews
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. If this had been our first experience, we highly likely would not have actually taken part in another marketing deal. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our first promotional resort stay, we began getting phone calls providing getaway packages to various destinations. That is how we ended up with a vacation package including our latest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple short remain in Florida and somewhere else.
These travel sales calls are constantly a high-pressure situation unless you just hang up. Say no adequate times and they will keep dropping the rate to where it really seems like a good deal. If they catch 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 research the holiday homes they are offering. You may have a few seconds to quickly bring up some images however that is about it. A photo is worth a thousand words, but not worth nearly as much as being able to check out a few 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 (hi, sailboat shopping!). So we pulled the trigger and bought a package. Using it, that is a whole different story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to really utilize the vacation time. There is a great deal of small print that makes travel planning very hard and possibly a lot more costly. They don’t reveal these information throughout the sales call.
THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only reserve schedule dates 45-90 days ahead of time if YOU PURCHASE A HOLIDAY BUNDLE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS. Okay, reasonable enough.
However, when you call to request your preferred dates, they require you to complete a long form needing all the details that they currently have. You then need to wait about a week to see if your dates are even available. Unless your itinerary will only include your stay at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel very troublesome.
Preparation budget friendly flights, or offered Airbnb remains in conjunction with your Premier Travel Resorts vacation plan is extremely difficult. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to stay at after our remain at the resort was booked by the time Premier Travel Resorts got back to us.
Our package consisted of a remain 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 planned was not allowed.
We utilized the Cancun part of our getaway plan, however we won’t be using the rest of it.
THE BAIT AND SWITCH CANCUN ‘ALL INCLUSIVE’ THROUGH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS
The space was unclean, the toilet was cracked, the lights flickered, which is just the start. You see, they put us up, not in one of the high-end residential or commercial properties that they wanted to offer us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the men at the great home informed us they called it. For real.
The one restaurant that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you neglect the air conditioner leaking into our food) was in fact a good experience. They changed up the menu every night, featuring foods from various parts of Mexico. And very willing to assist us with our Spanish.
Twice the shock of the difference in the type of place we thought we would be staying, we maximized it. We satisfied some good people. Consumed some excellent food. Took some good strolls on the golf course. And picked up our rental car a couple days early to go off and explore 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 discounted costs. No biggie. We seem like that deserves it.
Premier Travel Resorts, however, needs that you go to a marketing discussion throughout each stay. This is various from what we were informed when they offered us the bundle.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
