Spend less, take a trip more … right?! If you like to make your holiday travel dollar stretch, then like us, you may find yourself considering a holiday package marketing offer. Know that these marketing getaway bundle companies are not at all equivalent.

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 schedule the remainder of our getaway plan with them (some time in Florida). Let’s just say that will not be taking place. We are just going to consume the cost and forget about it.

From here on out, we will be reserving getaway packages through BookVIP. Here’s why …

Surely, you have actually seen the Facebook sponsored posts. You will see that it is complete of the least expensive trip plans to some of the most popular locations if you click over to their website. They have some seriously glamorous looking stays all over the world at some insane excellent rates.

Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was amazing. Perhaps the Dreams spoiled us.

One quick note … We have only utilized BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Reasoning informs me that not every resort getaway package is going to supply a comparable experience. It truly is all going to boil down to the research study you put in.

They don’t market the actual name of the resorts. If you truly desire to sleuth out the location you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the images will expose the true identity of the home you are thinking about. There was plenty of info on the BookVIP website to help us feel comfortable with making our reservation.

You understand ahead of time if the dates you desire to travel are available. There is time to compare the features and dining establishments. This is a big contrast to the promotional trip plan sales calls I will talk about in the next section.

When you are prepared to make your booking with BookVIP, just be prepared for a couple of extra resort charges and taxes. In our case, part of the extra charge was to cover pointers for the resort personnel.

OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Occidental Costa Cancun Bookvip.Com
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. We really likely would not have taken part 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 promotional resort stay, we began getting phone calls providing getaway bundles to different locations. That is how we wound up with a getaway package including our latest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief remain in Florida and somewhere else.

These travel sales calls are always a high-pressure situation unless you just hang up. Say no sufficient times and they will keep dropping the cost to where it really sounds like a bargain. It is required that you do so before the end of the phone call if they capture your interest and you choose to buy. There isn’t much time to investigate the vacation residential or commercial properties they are providing. You might have a couple of seconds to quickly pull up some images but that has to do with it. A picture deserves a thousand words, however not worth almost as much as being able to read a few reviews.

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 (hi, sailboat shopping!). So we shot and purchased a plan. Utilizing it, that is an entire different story.

Premier Travel Resorts does not make it easy to actually use the getaway time. There is a great deal of small print that makes travel preparation very difficult and possibly a lot more pricey. They do not expose these information during the sales call.

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

However, when you contact us to ask for your preferred dates, they require you to fill out a long type requiring all the details that they already have. You then need to wait about a week to see if your dates are even available. Unless your travel plans will just consist of your remain at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel very bothersome.

Planning inexpensive flights, or offered Airbnb stays in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts trip plan is very hard. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to remain at after our stay at the resort was reserved by the time Premier Travel Resorts returned 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 one month apart. So, in our case, utilizing them on either end of a company journey we had actually planned was not allowed.

We used the Cancun portion of our trip package, however we will not 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 homes that they wanted to offer us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the men at the nice home told us they called it.

Now, to be fair, Laguna Suites wasn’t all bad. The one dining establishment that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you ignore the air conditioner leaking into our food) was actually a good experience. They changed up the menu every night, featuring foods from different parts of Mexico. And the personnel was fantastic. Really friendly and accommodating. And very happy to help us with our Spanish.

Twice the shock of the distinction in the type of location we thought we would be staying, we took advantage of it. We met some good people. Ate some fantastic food. Took some great walks on the golf course. And got our rental cars and truck a couple days early to go off and check out the location.

THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts need that you go to a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their discounted prices. No biggie. We feel like that is worth it.

Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, needs that you attend a marketing presentation throughout each stay. This is different from what we were told when they offered us the bundle.

OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
