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 bundle advertising offer. Know that these marketing trip package business are not at all equivalent.
After the pulled down of our recent stay at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I just got off the phone from trying to book the remainder of our holiday package with them (some time in Florida). Let’s just state that will not be happening. We are simply going to eat the cost and forget about it.
From here on out, we will be scheduling getaway packages through BookVIP. If you click over to their site, you will see that it is complete of the most inexpensive vacation packages to some of the most popular destinations.
Our very first all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was remarkable. Possibly the Dreams spoiled us. This place was off-hook. It was everything we had actually expected and after that some.
One quick note … We have only utilized BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Reasoning tells me that not every resort holiday package is going to offer a similar experience. It truly is all going to boil down to the research study you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
Looking into the homes offered on BookVIP can be a bit of a challenge. They do not promote the actual name of the resorts. Rather, they use fake names. But if you truly want to sleuth out the place you will be staying a little bit of investigative work on Google to match up the pictures will expose the true identity of the residential or commercial property you are thinking about. We didn’t trouble going that far. There was a lot of information on the BookVIP site to help us feel comfortable with making our booking.
What we like about booking with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. Schedule when you have done your research study and you are ready. You will know what you are getting. If the dates you desire to take a trip are readily available, you know ahead of time. There is time to compare the amenities and restaurants. This is a big contrast to the marketing holiday plan sales calls I will speak about in the next area.
When you are prepared to make your booking with BookVIP, simply be prepared for a few additional resort charges and taxes. In our case, part of the additional charge was to cover suggestions for the resort staff.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Vip50
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. We really likely would not have actually taken part in another advertising offer if this had been our very first experience. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our very first advertising resort stay, we started getting phone calls offering getaway packages to numerous destinations. That is how we ended up with a vacation bundle including our latest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief stays in Florida and elsewhere.
These travel sales calls are always a high-pressure scenario unless you just hang up. Say no adequate times and they will keep dropping the price to where it really seems like a good deal. It is needed that you do so prior to the end of the phone call if they capture your interest and you choose to acquire. There isn’t much time to look into the holiday properties they are offering. You may have a few seconds to rapidly bring up some photos however that has to do with it. A picture deserves a thousand words, however unworthy almost as much as being able to read a couple of evaluations.
They drew us in with a remain in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the proximity to Belize) and some time in Florida (hey there, sailboat shopping!). We pulled the trigger and purchased a plan. Using it, that is a whole different story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it easy to actually utilize the vacation time. There is a lot of small print that makes travel planning very challenging and potentially a lot more pricey. They don’t expose these information throughout the sales call.
IF YOU PURCHASE A GETAWAY PACKAGE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS, THIS IS WHAT YOU OUGHT TO BE PREPARED FOR …
You can just schedule your dates 45-90 days ahead of time. Okay, reasonable enough.
Nevertheless, when you call to request for your preferred dates, they need you to complete a long type requiring all the information that they already have. You then need to wait about a week to see if your dates are even available. Unless your itinerary will just include your stay at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel very troublesome.
Planning cost effective flights, or available Airbnb stays in conjunction with your Premier Travel Resorts holiday plan is really difficult. In our case, the Airbnb we wished to stay at after our stay at the resort was reserved by the time Premier Travel Resorts returned to us.
Our bundle included a stay in Orlando and a stay in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts requires that those stays be back to back or 1 month apart. So, in our case, utilizing them on either end of a company trip we had actually planned was not allowed.
We used the Cancun part of our vacation package, however 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 chipped, the lights flickered, which is simply the start. You see, they put us up, not in one of the high-end homes that they wished to sell us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the guys at the good property informed us they called it. For real.
The one restaurant that was consisted of 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 various parts of Mexico. And really ready to assist us with our Spanish.
Twice the shock of the distinction in the kind of location we believed we would be remaining, we maximized it. We satisfied some great people. Consumed some fantastic food. Took some nice walks on the golf course. And picked up our rental cars and truck a couple days early to go off and check out the area.
THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts need that you attend a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their affordable rates. No biggie. We feel like that is worth it.
Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, needs that you go to a promotional discussion throughout each stay. When they offered us the plan, this is different from what we were informed. A two-hour sales pitch when you are remaining someplace for only two nights is a huge piece of time. They sold us 4 different stays, that means approximately eight hours of reasonably high-pressure sales! No thanks.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY RANT
