Invest less, take a trip more … right?! If you like to make your holiday travel dollar stretch, then like us, you may find yourself thinking about a vacation plan promotional offer. Know that these marketing trip bundle business are not at all equal.
After the pulled down of our current remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply left the phone from attempting to book the rest of our getaway package with them (some time in Florida). Let’s just state that will not be taking place. We are simply going to eat the expense and forget about it.
From here on out, we will be booking getaway plans through BookVIP. Here’s why …
Certainly, you have actually seen the Facebook sponsored posts. You will see that it is complete of the most inexpensive trip packages to some of the most popular destinations if you click over to their site. They have some seriously luxurious looking stays all over the world at some insane excellent rates.
Our very first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was amazing. Possibly the Dreams spoiled us.
One fast note … We have actually only utilized BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Reasoning tells me that not every resort getaway bundle is going to offer a similar experience. It really is all going to boil down to the research you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
Looking into the residential or commercial properties offered on BookVIP can be a little bit of a difficulty. They don’t market the real name of the resorts. Rather, they use phony names. If you truly want to sleuth out the location you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the photos will reveal the true identity of the property you are thinking about. We didn’t trouble going that far. There was a lot of info on the BookVIP website to assist us feel comfortable with making our appointment.
You know ahead of time if the dates you desire to take a trip are readily available. There is time to compare the features and dining establishments. This is a big contrast to the advertising vacation package sales calls I will talk about in the next section.
When you are ready to make your booking with BookVIP, just be gotten ready for a few additional resort costs and taxes. 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 additional charge was to cover tips for the resort personnel. After the experience we had, we found this to be well worth it.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Is Bookvip A Timeshare Company
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 taken part in another advertising deal. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our very first advertising resort stay, we started getting call providing getaway plans to various locations. That is how we wound up with a holiday bundle including our most recent Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief remain in Florida and in other places.
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 sounds like an excellent offer. There isn’t much time to investigate the getaway 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 some time in Florida (hey there, sailboat shopping!). So we shot and purchased a bundle. Using it, that is a whole various story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to in fact utilize the vacation time. There is a lot of small print that makes travel preparation extremely difficult and possibly a lot more pricey. They don’t expose these details during the sales call.
THIS IS WHAT YOU SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only just schedule dates 45-90 days ahead of time if YOU PURCHASE A VACATION PLAN WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS. Okay, reasonable enough.
When you call to ask for your preferred dates, they require you to fill out a long kind needing all the details that they currently have. You then need to wait about a week to see if your dates are even readily available. Unless your itinerary will only consist of your stay at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel extremely troublesome.
Preparation cost effective 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 consisted of a remain in Orlando and a remain in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts requires that those stays be back to back or 1 month apart. So, in our case, using them on either end of a service trip we had actually planned was not permitted.
We used the Cancun part of our getaway plan, but we won’t 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 luxury residential or commercial properties that they wanted 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.
Now, to be reasonable, Laguna Suites wasn’t all bad. The one restaurant that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you ignore the a/c dripping into our food) was really a great experience. They altered the menu every night, featuring foods from different parts of Mexico. And the personnel was fantastic. Extremely friendly and accommodating. And extremely ready to assist us with our Spanish.
As soon as 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 cars and truck a couple days early to go off and explore the location.
THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts need that you participate in a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their affordable prices. No biggie. We feel like that is worth it.
Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, requires that you go to a marketing presentation throughout each stay. This is different from what we were informed when they sold us the package.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
