Bookvip Panama City Beach 2023

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

After the let down of our current remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I just left the phone from trying to book the remainder of our getaway package with them (some time in Florida). Let’s simply say that will not be happening. We are just going to consume the expense and forget about it.

From here on out, we will be reserving getaway bundles through BookVIP. Here’s why …

Undoubtedly, you’ve seen the Facebook sponsored posts. If you click over to their website, you will see that it has plenty of the least expensive getaway packages to some of the most popular locations. They have some seriously elegant looking stays all over the world at some insane good rates.

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

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

Researching the residential or commercial properties provided on BookVIP can be a bit of a challenge. They don’t market the actual name of the resorts. Instead, they utilize phony names. If you truly desire to sleuth out the location you will be remaining a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the pictures will expose the real identity of the home you are considering. We didn’t trouble going that far. There was a lot of information on the BookVIP website to assist us feel comfortable with making our appointment.

You understand ahead of time if the dates you desire to travel are available. There is time to compare the facilities and restaurants. This is a huge contrast to the marketing getaway bundle sales calls I will talk about in the next section.

When you are prepared to make your appointment with BookVIP, just be prepared for a couple of additional resort charges and taxes. In our case, part of the additional charge was to cover tips for the resort personnel.

OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Panama City Beach
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. We really likely would not have participated in another marketing deal if this had been our first experience. It was that bad.

Are you on the calling lists? After our first advertising resort stay, we began getting phone calls providing vacation plans to various locations. That is how we wound up with a holiday plan 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 circumstance unless you just hang up. Say no adequate times and they will keep dropping the cost to where it in fact sounds like a bargain. It is needed that you do so before the end of the phone call if they catch your interest and you decide to purchase. There isn’t much time to investigate the vacation properties they are using. You may have a few seconds to rapidly pull up some images but that has to do with it. A picture deserves a thousand words, however unworthy almost as much as having the ability to check out a few reviews.

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!). We pulled the trigger and bought a package. However using it, that is an entire various story.

Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to really use the trip time. There is a lot of fine print that makes travel preparation very challenging and potentially a lot more expensive. They do not reveal these details during the sales call.

THIS IS WHAT YOU SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only reserve schedule dates 45-90 days ahead of time if YOU ACQUIRE A GETAWAY PLAN WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS. Okay, fair enough.

When you call to ask for your favored dates, they require you to fill out a long form needing all the details that they already have. You then need to wait about a week to see if your dates are even offered. Unless your itinerary will just include your stay at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel extremely inconvenient.

Preparation inexpensive flights, or offered Airbnb remains in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts getaway plan is very difficult. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to remain at after our remain at the resort was scheduled by the time Premier Travel Resorts got back to us.

Our plan included 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 planned was not enabled.

We utilized the Cancun part of our holiday plan, but we will not be using the rest of it.

THE BAIT AND SWITCH CANCUN ‘ALL INCLUSIVE’ THROUGH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS
The room was dirty, the toilet was broken, the lights flickered, and that is simply the start. You see, they put us up, not in one of the high-end homes that they wanted to sell us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the men at the nice residential or commercial property told us they called it. Genuine.

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

Once over the shock of the distinction in the sort of location we thought we would be remaining, we maximized it. We met some nice people. Consumed some fantastic food. Took some good walks on the golf course. And got our rental automobile a couple days early to go off and check out the location.

THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts require that you participate in a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their discounted rates. No biggie. We seem like that deserves it.

Premier Travel Resorts, however, requires that you participate in a promotional discussion during each stay. This is various from what we were informed when they sold us the plan.

OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
