Mayan Palace Collection Bookvip 2023

Spend less, take a trip more … right?! If you like to make your trip travel dollar stretch, then like us, you may find yourself thinking about a trip plan promotional deal. Know that these advertising getaway 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 left the phone from attempting to book the rest of our getaway plan with them (some time in Florida). Let’s simply state that will not be occurring. We are simply going to eat the expense and forget about it.

From here on out, we will be scheduling holiday plans through BookVIP. If you click over to their website, you will see that it is complete of the most inexpensive vacation bundles to some of the most popular locations.

Our very first 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 hoped for and then some.

One quick note … We have only used BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Reasoning tells me that not every resort trip bundle is going to provide a similar experience. It really is all going to boil down to the research study you put in.

They don’t promote the actual name of the resorts. If you really desire to sleuth out the place you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the images will reveal the real identity of the property you are thinking about. There was plenty of details on the BookVIP site to assist us feel comfy with making our reservation.

You know ahead of time if the dates you want to take a trip are available. There is time to compare the restaurants and facilities. This is a huge contrast to the marketing vacation plan sales calls I will talk about in the next section.

When you are ready to make your appointment with BookVIP, simply be prepared for a few extra resort fees and taxes. In our case, part of the extra charge was to cover suggestions for the resort personnel.

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

Are you on the calling lists? After our very first marketing resort stay, we started getting phone calls offering trip plans to numerous locations. That is how we wound up with a trip bundle including our latest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple short stays in Florida and elsewhere.

These travel sales calls are always a high-pressure scenario unless you just hang up. Say no enough times and they will keep dropping the rate to where it really sounds like an excellent offer. There isn’t much time to research the holiday residential or commercial properties they are providing.

They drew us in with a remain in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the distance to Belize) and a long time in Florida (hey there, sailboat shopping!). So 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 use the getaway time. There is a lot of small print that makes travel preparation really difficult and potentially a lot more pricey. They do not expose these information during the sales call.

THIS IS WHAT YOU OUGHT TO BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only reserve your dates 45-90 days ahead of time if YOU BUY A HOLIDAY PLAN WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS. Okay, fair enough.

When you call to ask for your favored dates, they need 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 travel plans will just consist of your stay at their resort, this makes planning the rest of your travel very troublesome.

Preparation affordable flights, or available Airbnb remains in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts getaway package 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 got back to us.

Our plan consisted of 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 service trip we had actually prepared was not enabled.

We used the Cancun portion of our getaway package, but we will not be using the rest of it.

THE BAIT AND SWITCH CANCUN ‘ALL INCLUSIVE’ THROUGH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS
The room was unclean, the toilet was cracked, the lights flickered, and that is just the beginning. You see, they put us up, not in among the luxury residential or commercial properties that they wanted to offer us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the men at the nice residential or commercial property told us they called it. For real.

Now, to be fair, Laguna Suites wasn’t all bad. The one restaurant that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you overlook the air conditioning system leaking into our food) was really a nice experience. They changed up the menu every night, featuring foods from various parts of Mexico. And the staff was incredible. Extremely friendly and accommodating. And extremely willing to assist us with our Spanish.

Twice the shock of the difference in the kind of location we believed we would be staying, we maximized it. We fulfilled some great individuals. Ate some great food. Took some great strolls on the golf course. And picked up our rental automobile a couple days early to go off and check out the location.

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

Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, needs that you participate in an advertising discussion during each stay. This is various from what we were told when they offered us the bundle.

OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY RANT
