Spend less, take a trip more … right?! If you like to make your vacation travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might discover yourself considering a trip plan advertising offer. Know that these promotional vacation plan business are not at all equivalent.
After the let down of our current stay at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply left the phone from attempting to schedule the rest of our vacation plan with them (a long time in Florida). Let’s simply 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 vacation plans through BookVIP. Here’s why …
Surely, you have actually seen the Facebook sponsored posts. You will see that it is full of the most affordable getaway packages to some of the most popular locations if you click over to their website. They have some seriously elegant looking stays all over the world at some insane excellent rates.
Our very first all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was amazing. Maybe the Dreams ruined us. This place was off-hook. It was whatever we had actually wished for and then some.
One quick note … We have actually just used BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Logic informs me that not every resort trip plan is going to provide a comparable experience. It truly is all going to boil down to the research you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
They don’t promote the actual name of the resorts. If you actually desire to sleuth out the place you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the photos will reveal the real identity of the residential or commercial property you are considering. There was plenty of info on the BookVIP site to assist us feel comfy with making our booking.
You know ahead of time if the dates you want to travel are readily available. There is time to compare the restaurants and facilities. This is a huge contrast to the promotional holiday package sales calls I will talk about in the next area.
When you are ready to make your appointment with BookVIP, just be gotten ready for a couple of additional resort costs and taxes. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive cost around $720 after whatever was stated and done. In our case, part of the surcharge was to cover pointers for the resort staff. After the experience we had, we discovered this to be well worth it.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Nowsarphire Riviera En Cancun Bookvip.Com
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. If this had been our first experience, we very likely would not have actually taken part in another promotional deal. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our first promotional resort stay, we started getting phone calls providing vacation packages to numerous destinations. 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 somewhere else.
These travel sales calls are constantly a high-pressure scenario unless you just hang up. State no adequate times and they will keep dropping the cost to where it actually sounds like an excellent deal. There isn’t much time to research the vacation homes 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 (hello, sailboat shopping!). We pulled the trigger and bought a bundle. However utilizing it, that is a whole different story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to actually use the getaway time. There is a lot of fine print that makes travel preparation extremely difficult and potentially a lot more expensive. They don’t reveal these details throughout the sales call.
THIS IS WHAT YOU SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only just your dates 45-90 days ahead of time if YOU PURCHASE A GETAWAY BUNDLE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS. Okay, fair enough.
When you call to ask for your preferred dates, they require you to fill out a long kind requiring all the details that they currently have. You then have to wait about a week to see if your dates are even available. Unless your itinerary will just consist of your stay at their resort, this makes planning the rest of your travel very inconvenient.
Planning inexpensive flights, or available Airbnb remains in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts vacation package is very difficult. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to stay at after our stay at the resort was scheduled by the time Premier Travel Resorts got back to us.
Our bundle consisted of a stay in Orlando and a remain in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts needs that those stays be back to back or 1 month apart. In our case, utilizing them on either end of a business trip we had actually planned was not allowed.
We utilized the Cancun portion of our trip bundle, however we won’t be using 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 properties that they wanted to sell us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the men at the good home told us they called it.
Now, to be fair, Laguna Suites wasn’t all bad. The one dining establishment that was consisted of in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you overlook the a/c unit leaking into our food) was in fact a nice experience. They changed up the menu every night, featuring foods from different parts of Mexico. And the staff was amazing. Extremely friendly and accommodating. And very going to help us with our Spanish.
When over the shock of the difference in the kind of location we thought we would be remaining, we made the most of it. And selected up our rental automobile a couple days early to go off and explore the location.
THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts need that you attend a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their affordable costs. No biggie. We seem like that is worth it.
Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, requires that you participate in a marketing discussion throughout each stay. This is different from what we were informed when they offered us the bundle.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY RANT
