We are bargain hunters. Spend less, take a trip more … right?!Bookvip Cabo San Lucas Reviews… If you like to make your getaway travel dollar stretch, then like us, you may find yourself considering a holiday plan promotional offer. You need to be prepared. Know that these advertising holiday bundle companies are not at all equivalent.
After the pulled down of our current stay at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I just left the phone from attempting to book the remainder of our getaway plan with them (a long time in Florida). Let’s simply say that will not be occurring. We are just going to consume the cost and forget about it.
From here on out, we will be scheduling trip packages through BookVIP. Here’s why …
Undoubtedly, you’ve seen the Facebook sponsored posts. If you click over to their site, you will see that it is full of the cheapest trip packages to some of the most popular locations. They have some seriously luxurious looking stays all over the world at some crazy good prices.
Our very first all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was fantastic. Perhaps the Dreams spoiled us. This location was off-hook. It was whatever we had actually hoped for and then some.
One fast note … We have actually only used BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Reasoning informs me that not every resort getaway plan is going to supply 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 do not market the real name of the resorts. If you really desire to sleuth out the place you will be remaining a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the pictures will expose the real identity of the residential or commercial property you are considering. There was plenty of information on the BookVIP website to assist us feel comfy with making our reservation.
What we enjoy about scheduling 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 know what you are getting. If the dates you desire to travel are offered, you understand ahead of time. There is time to compare the facilities and dining establishments. This is a big contrast to the marketing getaway plan sales calls I will talk about in the next area.
When you are ready to make your reservation with BookVIP, simply be prepared for a few additional resort charges and taxes. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive cost around $720 after everything was stated and done. In our case, part of the added fee was to cover ideas for the resort staff. After the experience we had, we found this to be well worth it.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Cabo San Lucas Reviews
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. If this had actually been our first experience, we highly likely would not have actually taken part in another advertising offer. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our very first promotional resort stay, we started getting call offering getaway plans to different locations. That is how we ended up with a trip bundle including our newest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief stays in Florida and somewhere else.
These travel sales calls are constantly a high-pressure situation unless you simply hang up. Say no sufficient times and they will keep dropping the rate to where it actually sounds like a good deal. It is required that you do so prior to the end of the phone call if they catch your interest and you decide to acquire. There isn’t much time to look into the holiday residential or commercial properties they are offering. You might have a couple of seconds to rapidly bring up some photos but that is about it. A picture deserves a thousand words, but not worth nearly as much as having the ability to read a few reviews.
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 purchased a package. However utilizing it, that is an entire various story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to actually use the holiday time. There is a great deal of fine print that makes travel preparation really challenging and potentially a lot more costly. They don’t reveal these information throughout the sales call.
IF YOU ACQUIRE A TRIP BUNDLE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS, THIS IS WHAT YOU SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only schedule your dates 45-90 days ahead of time. Okay, reasonable enough.
Nevertheless, when you call to request your favored dates, they require you to complete a long kind needing all the details that they currently have. You then have to wait about a week to see if your dates are even readily available. Unless your travel plans will just include your remain at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel really bothersome.
Planning affordable flights, or offered Airbnb remains in conjunction with your Premier Travel Resorts holiday bundle is really challenging. In our case, the Airbnb we wished to stay at after our stay at the resort was reserved by the time Premier Travel Resorts returned to us.
Our plan consisted of a stay in Orlando and a remain in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts requires that those stays be back to back or one month apart. So, in our case, utilizing them on either end of a service trip we had actually prepared was not permitted.
We used the Cancun part of our holiday bundle, 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 desired to sell us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the guys at the nice home informed us they called it.
The one dining establishment that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you ignore the air conditioner leaking into our food) was actually a nice experience. They altered up the menu every night, including foods from different parts of Mexico. And really willing to assist us with our Spanish.
Once over the shock of the distinction in the kind of place we thought we would be staying, we made the many of it. And picked up our rental vehicle a couple days early to go off and explore the area.
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 seem like that is worth it.
Premier Travel Resorts, however, requires that you participate in a marketing presentation throughout each stay. This is various from what we were informed when they offered us the plan.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
