Bookvip Villa Del Palmar 2023

Spend less, travel more … right?! If you like to make your trip travel dollar stretch, then like us, you may find yourself considering a holiday bundle marketing offer. Know that these promotional vacation 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 left the phone from trying to reserve the rest of our trip bundle with them (some time in Florida). Let’s just say that will not be happening. We are just going to forget and consume the cost about it.

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

Certainly, you have actually seen the Facebook sponsored posts. If you click over to their site, you will see that it has lots of the least expensive getaway bundles to a few of the most popular destinations. They have some seriously elegant looking stays all over the world at some insane great costs.

Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was incredible. Perhaps the Dreams ruined us.

One fast note … We have just used BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Reasoning tells me that not every resort holiday plan is going to offer a similar experience. It truly is all going to boil down to the research you put in.

Investigating the properties provided on BookVIP can be a little bit of a challenge. They don’t market the actual name of the resorts. Instead, they use phony names. If you really desire to sleuth out the location you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the photos will expose the true identity of the property you are thinking about. We didn’t trouble going that far. There was lots of details on the BookVIP website to help us feel comfortable with making our appointment.

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

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

OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Villa Del Palmar
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the best. If this had been our first experience, we most likely would not have participated in another marketing deal. It was that bad.

Are you on the calling lists? After our very first promotional resort stay, we began getting telephone call using trip packages to different destinations. That is how we ended up with a getaway plan including our latest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple short remain in Florida and somewhere else.

These travel sales calls are always a high-pressure situation unless you just hang up. State no adequate times and they will keep dropping the cost to where it actually sounds like a good offer. There isn’t much time to look into the trip homes they are offering.

They drew us in with a remain in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the proximity to Belize) and a long time in Florida (hello, sailboat shopping!). So we pulled the trigger and bought a package. However utilizing it, that is an entire various story.

Premier Travel Resorts does not make it easy to in fact utilize the holiday time. There is a great deal of small print that makes travel planning really hard and potentially a lot more pricey. They don’t reveal these details during the sales call.

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

However, when you call to ask for your preferred dates, they need you to submit a long type requiring all the information that they currently have. You then have to wait about a week to see if your dates are even available. Unless your travel plans will only consist of your remain at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel really troublesome.

Planning economical flights, or offered Airbnb stays in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts getaway bundle is extremely challenging. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to remain at after our remain at the resort was reserved by the time Premier Travel Resorts returned to us.

Our package included a remain in Orlando and a stay in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts needs that those stays be back to back or one month apart. In our case, utilizing them on either end of a business journey we had actually prepared was not permitted.

We used the Cancun portion of our vacation plan, but we will not 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 high-end properties that they wanted to sell us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the men at the good residential or commercial property told us they called it.

The one restaurant that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you overlook the air conditioner dripping into our food) was in fact a good experience. They altered up the menu every night, including foods from various parts of Mexico. And really prepared to assist us with our Spanish.

When over the shock of the distinction in the kind of location we thought we would be staying, we made the many of it. And selected up our rental vehicle a couple days early to go off and explore the area.

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

Premier Travel Resorts, however, requires that you participate in an advertising discussion throughout each stay. This is different from what we were informed when they offered us the bundle.

OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
