Bookvip Reservations 2023

Spend less, take a trip more … right?! If you like to make your vacation travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might find yourself considering a vacation package marketing deal. Know that these advertising vacation plan business are not at all equivalent.

After the pulled down of our recent remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I just left the phone from trying to schedule the rest of our vacation package with them (some time in Florida). Let’s simply state that will not be taking place. We are simply going to forget and consume the cost about it.

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

Undoubtedly, you’ve seen the Facebook sponsored posts. You will see that it is full of the cheapest getaway plans to some of the most popular locations if you click over to their website. They have some seriously elegant looking stays all over the world at some crazy excellent rates.

Our very first all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was incredible. Possibly the Dreams spoiled us. This place was off-hook. It was everything we had hoped for and after that some.

One quick note … We have just used BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Reasoning tells me that not every resort vacation package is going to offer a similar experience. It really is all going to boil down to the research you put in.

Researching the properties used on BookVIP can be a little bit of a difficulty. They don’t market the actual name of the resorts. Rather, they use fake names. However if you actually wish to sleuth out the location you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the pictures will expose the true identity of the property you are thinking about. We didn’t trouble going that far. There was plenty of info on the BookVIP website to help us feel comfortable with making our appointment.

What we enjoy about reserving with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. When you have actually done your research and you are all set, book. You will understand what you are getting. If the dates you want to travel are available, you understand ahead of time. There is time to compare the features and dining establishments. This is a big contrast to the marketing vacation bundle sales calls I will speak about in the next area.

Just be prepared for a few additional resort charges and taxes when you are prepared to make your appointment with BookVIP. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive cost around $720 after everything was stated and done. In our case, part of the service charge was to cover ideas for the resort personnel. After the experience we had, we discovered this to be well worth it.

OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Reservations
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 very likely would not have actually participated in another advertising offer. It was that bad.

Are you on the calling lists? After our first marketing resort stay, we began getting call using vacation bundles to different destinations. That is how we wound up with a holiday bundle including our newest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief stays in Florida and in other places.

These travel sales calls are constantly a high-pressure scenario unless you just hang up. State no sufficient times and they will keep dropping the rate to where it in fact sounds like a great offer. There isn’t much time to research the trip homes they are using.

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

Premier Travel Resorts does not make it easy to actually utilize the holiday time. There is a great deal of small print that makes travel preparation very challenging and potentially a lot more costly. They do not reveal these details during the sales call.

THIS IS WHAT YOU MUST BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only just book dates 45-90 days ahead of time if YOU BUY A VACATION PLAN WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS. Okay, fair enough.

Nevertheless, when you call to request for your favored dates, they require you to fill out a long form requiring all the information that they already have. You then have to wait about a week to see if your dates are even offered. Unless your travel plans will just include your remain at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel very inconvenient.

Preparation affordable flights, or available Airbnb stays in conjunction with your Premier Travel Resorts holiday plan is extremely tough. In our case, the Airbnb we wished to remain at after our stay at the resort was booked by the time Premier Travel Resorts returned to us.

Our plan included a stay 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 service journey we had planned was not enabled.

We utilized the Cancun portion of our trip bundle, however we will not be utilizing 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 high-end homes that they wanted to sell us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the people at the nice home informed us they called it.

Now, to be fair, Laguna Suites wasn’t all bad. The one restaurant that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you overlook the air conditioning system leaking into our food) was in fact a good experience. They altered the menu every night, featuring foods from various parts of Mexico. And the personnel was fantastic. Very friendly and accommodating. And very going to assist us with our Spanish.

As soon as over the shock of the difference in the kind of location we believed we would be remaining, we made the many of it. And picked up our rental cars and truck a couple days early to go off and explore the location.

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

Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, needs that you attend a marketing discussion during each stay. This is different from what we were told when they offered us the plan. When you are staying someplace for just 2 nights is a huge piece of time, a two-hour sales pitch. They sold us 4 different stays, that suggests approximately 8 hours of reasonably high-pressure sales! No thanks.

OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY RANT
