Spend less, travel more … right?! If you like to make your vacation travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might find yourself thinking about a getaway plan advertising deal. Know that these advertising trip bundle companies are not at all equivalent.
After the let down of our recent remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply got off the phone from trying to book the remainder of our getaway package with them (a long time in Florida). Let’s simply state that will not be happening. We are simply going to consume the expense and forget about it.
From here on out, we will be scheduling holiday bundles through BookVIP. If you click over to their site, you will see that it is complete of the most affordable getaway packages to some of the most popular locations.
Our very first all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was incredible. Perhaps the Dreams ruined us. This place was off-hook. It was whatever we had actually wished for and then some.
One quick note … We have just used BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Reasoning tells me that not every resort getaway package is going to offer a comparable experience. It actually is all going to come down to the research study you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
Looking into the residential or commercial properties offered on BookVIP can be a little bit of an obstacle. They don’t advertise the actual name of the resorts. Rather, they use fake names. But if you actually want to sleuth out the location you will be staying a little investigative deal with Google to compare 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 help us feel comfy with making our booking.
What we enjoy about scheduling with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. When you have actually done your research study and you are all set, book. You will know what you are getting. If the dates you desire to travel are offered, you know ahead of time. There is time to compare the dining establishments and amenities. This is a big contrast to the advertising holiday package sales calls I will talk about in the next area.
When you are ready to make your reservation with BookVIP, simply be gotten ready for a few additional resort costs and taxes. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive expense around $720 after everything was stated and done. In our case, part of the surcharge was to cover suggestions for the resort staff. After the experience we had, we found this to be well worth it.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip North Myrtle Beach
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. If this had actually been our very first experience, we likely would not have participated in another promotional offer. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our very first promotional resort stay, we started getting call using holiday packages to various locations. That is how we ended up with a trip bundle including our latest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief remain in Florida and elsewhere.
These travel sales calls are constantly a high-pressure situation unless you simply hang up. State no adequate times and they will keep dropping the cost to where it in fact sounds like a good deal. There isn’t much time to investigate the trip homes they are providing.
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 (hi, sailboat shopping!). So we pulled the trigger and purchased a package. But utilizing it, that is a whole different story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to actually utilize the vacation time. There is a great deal of fine print that makes travel preparation extremely challenging and potentially a lot more pricey. They don’t expose these information throughout the sales call.
THIS IS WHAT YOU SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only reserve book dates 45-90 days ahead of time if YOU BUY A GETAWAY PACKAGE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS. Okay, reasonable enough.
However, when you contact us to ask for your favored dates, they require you to submit 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 offered. Unless your itinerary will only include your remain at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel very bothersome.
Preparation inexpensive flights, or offered Airbnb stays in conjunction with your Premier Travel Resorts holiday package is extremely challenging. In our case, the Airbnb we wished to stay at after our remain at the resort was reserved by the time Premier Travel Resorts got back to us.
Our plan included a remain in Orlando and a stay in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts needs that those stays be back to back or 1 month apart. In our case, utilizing them on either end of a business trip we had prepared was not allowed.
We utilized the Cancun part of our holiday bundle, however we won’t 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 homes that they desired to offer us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the people at the nice property 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 great experience. They changed up the menu every night, including foods from different parts of Mexico. And extremely willing to assist us with our Spanish.
As soon as over the shock of the distinction in the kind of place we thought we would be staying, we made the most of it. And selected 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 discounted rates. No biggie. We feel like that is worth it.
Premier Travel Resorts, however, requires that you participate in a marketing discussion throughout each stay. This is different from what we were informed when they sold us the package. A two-hour sales pitch when you are remaining someplace for just two nights is a huge portion of time. They sold us 4 different stays, that indicates as much as eight hours of moderately high-pressure sales! No thanks.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY RANT
