Invest less, travel more … right?! If you like to make your getaway travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might discover yourself thinking about a holiday bundle marketing offer. Know that these advertising vacation plan business are not at all equivalent.
After the let down of our current remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply left the phone from attempting to book the remainder of our trip bundle with them (a long 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 reserving 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 getaway bundles to a few of the most popular locations. They have some seriously luxurious looking stays all over the world at some crazy excellent costs.
Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was incredible. Perhaps the Dreams spoiled us. This location was off-hook. It was whatever we had actually hoped for and then some.
One fast note … We have just utilized BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Reasoning tells me that not every resort getaway plan is going to provide a comparable experience. It actually is all going to come down to the research you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
They don’t market the real 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 pictures will expose the real identity of the home you are thinking about. There was plenty of information on the BookVIP website to assist us feel comfy with making our reservation.
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 big contrast to the marketing vacation bundle sales calls I will talk about in the next section.
Just be prepared for a couple of extra resort fees and taxes when you are ready to make your appointment with BookVIP. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive expense around $720 after everything was stated and done. In our case, part of the added fee was to cover ideas for the resort staff. After the experience we had, we found this to be well worth it.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Has Anyone Ever Used Bookvip.Com
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. We extremely likely would not have actually participated in another promotional deal if this had actually been our very first experience. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our first marketing resort stay, we began getting call using vacation plans to numerous locations. That is how we wound up with a vacation bundle including our most recent Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief remain in Florida and in other places.
These travel sales calls are constantly a high-pressure scenario unless you simply hang up. State no enough times and they will keep dropping the cost to where it actually sounds like a good deal. There isn’t much time to look into the trip properties they are providing.
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 (hi, sailboat shopping!). So we shot and purchased a plan. Using it, that is a whole different story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it easy to actually utilize the trip time. There is a great deal of small print that makes travel planning extremely difficult and possibly a lot more expensive. They do not expose these details during the sales call.
IF YOU ACQUIRE A HOLIDAY PLAN WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS, THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO BE PREPARED FOR …
You can just book your dates 45-90 days ahead of time. Okay, fair enough.
When you call to ask for your favored dates, they require you to fill out a long kind needing 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 only include your stay at their resort, this makes planning the rest of your travel really bothersome.
Planning budget-friendly flights, or readily available Airbnb stays in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts holiday package is really difficult. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to remain at after our stay at the resort was booked by the time Premier Travel Resorts got back to us.
Our package included a stay in Orlando and a remain in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts needs that those stays be back to back or 30 days apart. In our case, using them on either end of a service journey we had planned was not allowed.
We utilized the Cancun portion of our holiday plan, however we will not be utilizing the rest of it.
THE BAIT AND SWITCH CANCUN ‘ALL INCLUSIVE’ THROUGH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS
The room was unclean, the toilet was broken, the lights flickered, and that is simply the start. You see, they put us up, not in among the high-end residential or commercial properties that they wished to offer us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the people at the great home informed us they called it. For real.
The one restaurant that was consisted of in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you overlook the air conditioner leaking into our food) was in fact a nice experience. They altered up the menu every night, featuring foods from different parts of Mexico. And extremely ready to assist us with our Spanish.
Once over the shock of the distinction in the kind of location we thought we would be remaining, we made the most of it. And chose 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 deserves it.
Premier Travel Resorts, however, needs that you attend a promotional discussion during each stay. This is different from what we were informed when they sold us the package.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
