We are deal hunters. Invest less, take a trip more … right?!Bookvip Westgate Orlando Reviews… If you like to make your vacation travel dollar stretch, then like us, you may find yourself considering a holiday bundle marketing deal. You need to be prepared. Know that these promotional vacation package companies are not at all equal.
After the let down of our recent stay at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply left the phone from attempting to schedule the remainder of our vacation plan with them (some time in Florida). Let’s just state 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 trip plans through BookVIP. Here’s why …
Certainly, you’ve seen the Facebook sponsored posts. If you click over to their site, you will see that it has lots of the cheapest trip packages to a few of the most popular locations. They have some seriously luxurious looking stays all over the world at some crazy great costs.
Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was fantastic. Maybe the Dreams ruined us. This place was off-hook. It was whatever we had hoped for and after that some.
One quick note … We have actually just used BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Reasoning tells me that not every resort trip package is going to supply a similar experience. It actually is all going to boil down to the research you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
They don’t market the actual name of the resorts. If you actually want to sleuth out the place you will be remaining a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the photos will expose the true identity of the home you are considering. There was plenty of info on the BookVIP site to help us feel comfy with making our appointment.
What we enjoy about booking with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. When you have actually done your research study and you are prepared, schedule. You will know what you are getting. You know ahead of time if the dates you wish to travel are offered. There is time to compare the features and restaurants. This is a huge contrast to the promotional trip bundle sales calls I will talk about in the next area.
Simply be prepared for a couple of additional resort costs and taxes when you are prepared to make your appointment with BookVIP. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive expense around $720 after whatever was said and done. In our case, part of the added fee was to cover suggestions for the resort personnel. After the experience we had, we found this to be well worth it.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Westgate Orlando Reviews
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the best. If this had actually been our very first experience, we most likely would not have actually participated in another advertising offer. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our first advertising resort stay, we started getting call using vacation bundles to numerous locations. That is how we ended up with a holiday bundle including our newest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief stays in Florida and elsewhere.
These travel sales calls are constantly a high-pressure circumstance unless you just hang up. Say no adequate times and they will keep dropping the rate to where it really sounds like a bargain. It is needed that you do so prior to the end of the phone call if they capture your interest and you choose to purchase. There isn’t much time to investigate the getaway properties they are providing. You may have a couple of seconds to rapidly pull up some photos but that is about it. A photo deserves a thousand words, but not worth nearly as much as having the ability to read a couple of reviews.
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 (hi, sailboat shopping!). We pulled the trigger and bought a package. However utilizing it, that is a whole various story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to in fact utilize the holiday time. There is a lot of small print that makes travel preparation really hard and potentially a lot more expensive. They don’t reveal these details during the sales call.
IF YOU PURCHASE A TRIP PLAN WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS, THIS IS WHAT YOU MUST BE PREPARED FOR …
You can just reserve your dates 45-90 days ahead of time. Okay, reasonable enough.
However, when you call to request your preferred dates, they need you to submit a long type requiring all the information that they currently have. You then need to wait about a week to see if your dates are even offered. Unless your travel plans will just consist of your remain at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel extremely troublesome.
Preparation affordable flights, or readily available Airbnb remains in conjunction with your Premier Travel Resorts holiday bundle is very challenging. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to remain at after our stay at the resort was scheduled by the time Premier Travel Resorts returned to us.
Our bundle consisted of a remain in Orlando and a stay in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts requires that those stays be back to back or one month apart. So, in our case, using them on either end of a company journey we had prepared was not enabled.
We utilized the Cancun portion of our vacation bundle, however we will not be using the rest of it.
THE BAIT AND SWITCH CANCUN ‘ALL INCLUSIVE’ THROUGH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS
The room was filthy, the toilet was cracked, the lights flickered, and that is just the start. You see, they put us up, not in one of the luxury homes that they wished to sell us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the men at the good property told us they called it. Genuine.
The one restaurant that was consisted of in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you overlook the air conditioner dripping into our food) was really a great experience. They changed up the menu every night, featuring foods from various parts of Mexico. And very willing to help us with our Spanish.
When over the shock of the difference in the kind of place we thought we would be staying, we made the many of it. And selected up our rental car 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 discounted prices. No biggie. We seem like that is worth it.
Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, requires that you attend a promotional presentation throughout each stay. When they offered us the plan, this is different from what we were informed. When you are remaining somewhere for only 2 nights is a big portion of time, a two-hour sales pitch. They offered us four different stays, that indicates as much as eight hours of reasonably high-pressure sales! No thanks.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY RANT
