Bookit Vs Bookvip – Review 2022-3

We are deal hunters. Invest less, take a trip more … right?!Bookit Vs Bookvip… If you like to make your trip travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might find yourself considering a getaway bundle marketing deal. You should be prepared. Know that these promotional holiday plan business are not equivalent.

After the let down of our current remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I just left the phone from attempting to book the remainder of our holiday package with them (a long time in Florida). Let’s simply say that will not be taking place. We are just going to eat the cost and forget about it.

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

Certainly, you’ve seen the Facebook sponsored posts. You will see that it is complete of the most inexpensive getaway 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 prices.

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

One quick note … We have only used BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Logic informs me that not every resort getaway bundle is going to supply a comparable experience. It really is all going to boil down to the research you put in.

They don’t advertise the real name of the resorts. If you truly want to sleuth out the location you will be remaining a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the pictures will reveal the real identity of the home you are considering. There was plenty of info on the BookVIP website to help us feel comfortable with making our booking.

What we like about reserving with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. Reserve when you have actually done your research study and you are ready. You will understand what you are getting. You understand ahead of time if the dates you wish to travel are readily available. There is time to compare the amenities and dining establishments. This is a huge contrast to the marketing holiday plan sales calls I will talk about in the next section.

When you are all set to make your booking with BookVIP, just be prepared for a few additional resort fees and taxes. In our case, part of the extra charge was to cover suggestions for the resort staff.

OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookit Vs Bookvip
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. We extremely likely would not have gotten involved in another promotional offer if this had 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 offering getaway bundles to numerous locations. That is how we ended up with a trip 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 scenario unless you simply hang up. Say no sufficient times and they will keep dropping the price to where it in fact seems like a bargain. If they record your interest and you choose to acquire, it is required that you do so prior to completion of the call. There isn’t much time to look into the vacation homes they are offering. You may have a few seconds to rapidly pull up some images however that has to do with it. An image is worth a thousand words, however unworthy nearly as much as having the ability to check out a couple of evaluations.

They drew us in with a remain in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the distance to Belize) and some time in Florida (hey there, sailboat shopping!). So we pulled the trigger and purchased a bundle. However using it, that is an entire different story.

Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to actually use the vacation time. There is a great deal of small print that makes travel planning extremely difficult and potentially a lot more costly. They don’t expose these information during the sales call.

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

When you call to ask for your preferred dates, they need you to fill out a long type needing all the information that they currently have. You then need to wait about a week to see if your dates are even available. Unless your travel plans will just include your stay at their resort, this makes planning the rest of your travel very bothersome.

Planning budget friendly flights, or available Airbnb stays in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts trip plan is really challenging. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to remain at after our remain at the resort was booked by the time Premier Travel Resorts got back to us.

Our bundle consisted of a stay in Orlando and a stay 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 trip we had planned was not allowed.

We used the Cancun part of our trip bundle, but we won’t be utilizing the rest of it.

THE BAIT AND SWITCH CANCUN ‘ALL INCLUSIVE’ THROUGH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS
The space was filthy, the toilet was broken, the lights flickered, and that is simply the beginning. You see, they put us up, not in among the high-end properties that they wanted to offer us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the people at the nice property told us they called it. For real.

The one restaurant that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you neglect the air conditioner leaking into our food) was really a great experience. They changed up the menu every night, featuring foods from various parts of Mexico. And extremely ready to assist us with our Spanish.

Twice the shock of the difference in the sort of place we thought we would be remaining, we maximized it. We met some great people. Ate some excellent food. Took some good strolls on the golf course. And got our rental automobile a couple days early to go off and explore the area.

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

Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, needs that you participate in a promotional presentation throughout each stay. This is various from what we were told when they offered us the package.

OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
