Spend less, take a trip more … right?! If you like to make your holiday travel dollar stretch, then like us, you may discover yourself thinking about a vacation plan promotional deal. Know that these promotional vacation plan business are not at all equal.
After the let down of our current stay at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply got off the phone from attempting to reserve the remainder of our getaway plan with them (some time in Florida). Let’s simply say that will not be happening. We are just going to forget and eat the expense about it.
From here on out, we will be scheduling getaway bundles through BookVIP. If you click over to their website, you will see that it is complete of the most inexpensive trip packages to some of the most popular destinations.
Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was incredible. Perhaps the Dreams ruined us.
One fast note … We have only used BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Reasoning tells me that not every resort vacation package is going to provide a similar experience. It truly is all going to come down to the research you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
Investigating the residential or commercial properties provided on BookVIP can be a little a difficulty. They do not promote the real name of the resorts. Rather, they utilize phony names. But if you truly want to sleuth out the place you will be remaining a little bit of investigative deal with Google to match up the images will reveal the true identity of the property you are thinking about. We didn’t bother going that far. There was plenty of details on the BookVIP site to assist us feel comfortable 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 amenities. This is a huge contrast to the marketing getaway bundle sales calls I will talk about in the next area.
When you are ready to make your appointment with BookVIP, simply be gotten ready for a few extra resort fees and taxes. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive expense around $720 after everything was said and done. In our case, part of the additional charge was to cover tips for the resort personnel. After the experience we had, we discovered this to be well worth it.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Com Es Confiable
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the best. If this had been our very first experience, we most likely would not have participated in another advertising offer. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our first promotional resort stay, we began getting call using trip plans to numerous destinations. That is how we wound up with a trip package including our most recent Cancun all inclusive plus a couple short stays in Florida and in other places.
These travel sales calls are always a high-pressure situation unless you just hang up. Say no enough times and they will keep dropping the rate to where it really sounds like a good deal. If they capture your interest and you choose to buy, it is needed that you do so prior to the end of the call. There isn’t much time to look into the holiday homes they are offering. You may have a couple of seconds to quickly bring up some photos however that has to do with it. An image deserves a thousand words, however unworthy almost as much as having the ability to check out a few evaluations.
They drew us in with a stay in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the proximity to Belize) and some time in Florida (hi, 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 easy to in fact use the holiday time. There is a great deal of fine print that makes travel preparation extremely hard and potentially a lot more expensive. They do not reveal these information during the sales call.
IF YOU ACQUIRE A VACATION PLAN WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS, THIS IS WHAT YOU SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR …
You can just schedule your dates 45-90 days ahead of time. Okay, fair enough.
When you call to ask for your favored dates, they require you to fill out a long type needing all the details that they already have. You then need to wait about a week to see if your dates are even readily available. Unless your itinerary will just include your stay at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel extremely bothersome.
Preparation budget friendly flights, or readily available Airbnb stays in conjunction with your Premier Travel Resorts holiday package is really difficult. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to stay at after our stay at the resort was booked by the time Premier Travel Resorts returned to us.
Our plan included 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, using them on either end of a business trip we had planned was not allowed.
We utilized the Cancun portion of our trip plan, however we will not be utilizing 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 high-end homes that they desired to offer us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the men at the good home told us they called it.
The one dining establishment that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you neglect the air conditioner dripping into our food) was in fact a good experience. They changed up the menu every night, featuring foods from various parts of Mexico. And extremely willing to help us with our Spanish.
Twice the shock of the distinction in the kind of place we believed we would be remaining, we made the most of it. We satisfied some good people. Consumed some great food. Took some great strolls on the golf course. And got our rental vehicle a couple days early to go off and check out the location.
THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts require that you attend a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their reduced prices. No biggie. We seem like that is worth it.
Premier Travel Resorts, however, needs that you go to an advertising discussion throughout each stay. This is different from what we were told when they offered us the bundle.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
