We are bargain hunters. Invest less, travel more … right?!Bookvip Com Orlando… If you like to make your trip travel dollar stretch, then like us, you may find yourself considering a holiday package promotional offer. But you need to be prepared. Know that these advertising holiday plan companies are not equal.
After the pulled down of our current remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply left the phone from trying to schedule the remainder of our vacation bundle with them (a long time in Florida). Let’s simply say that will not be happening. We are simply going to consume the expense and forget about it.
From here on out, we will be scheduling holiday plans through BookVIP. Here’s why …
Undoubtedly, you have actually seen the Facebook sponsored posts. If you click over to their site, you will see that it has lots of the cheapest getaway bundles to some of the most popular destinations. They have some seriously luxurious looking stays all over the world at some insane good costs.
Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was remarkable. Perhaps the Dreams spoiled us. This place was off-hook. It was everything we had hoped for and after that some.
One fast note … We have only used BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Logic tells me that not every resort holiday package is going to provide a comparable experience. It really is all going to boil 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 bit of a difficulty. They don’t advertise the actual name of the resorts. Instead, they use fake names. But if you truly wish to sleuth out the place you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to compare the pictures will expose the true identity of the home you are considering. We didn’t bother going that far. There was a lot of information on the BookVIP website to help us feel comfortable with making our booking.
What we love about booking with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. When you have actually done your research study and you are prepared, book. You will know what you are getting. You know ahead of time if the dates you wish to travel are readily available. There is time to compare the dining establishments and facilities. This is a huge contrast to the advertising getaway bundle sales calls I will talk about in the next section.
When you are ready to make your booking with BookVIP, simply be prepared for a couple of extra resort costs and taxes. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive cost around $720 after whatever was said and done. In our case, part of the additional charge was to cover tips for the resort staff. After the experience we had, we discovered this to be well worth it.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Com Orlando
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 taken part in another promotional offer. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our first marketing resort stay, we started getting phone calls using getaway bundles to numerous destinations. That is how we ended up with a holiday bundle including our most recent Cancun all inclusive plus a couple short stays in Florida and elsewhere.
These travel sales calls are constantly a high-pressure scenario unless you simply hang up. Say no enough times and they will keep dropping the price to where it in fact seems like a good deal. It is needed that you do so prior to the end of the phone call if they capture your interest and you decide to buy. There isn’t much time to investigate the vacation homes they are providing. You may have a couple of seconds to quickly pull up some pictures but that has to do with it. A picture is worth a thousand words, however not worth nearly as much as having the ability to check out a couple of reviews.
They drew us in with a remain in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the proximity to Belize) and some time in Florida (hello, sailboat shopping!). So we pulled the trigger and bought a plan. Using it, that is a whole various story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to actually utilize the vacation time. There is a lot of small print that makes travel preparation really challenging and possibly a lot more expensive. They don’t reveal these details during the sales call.
THIS IS WHAT YOU MUST BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only reserve book dates 45-90 days ahead of time if YOU PURCHASE A GETAWAY BUNDLE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS. Okay, fair enough.
However, when you contact us to ask for your preferred dates, they require you to complete a long kind needing all the details 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 consist of your remain at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel really bothersome.
Preparation cost effective flights, or available Airbnb remains in conjunction with your Premier Travel Resorts trip package is very hard. In our case, the Airbnb we wished to stay at after our stay at the resort was scheduled by the time Premier Travel Resorts returned to us.
Our plan included a stay in Orlando and a stay in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts requires that those stays be back to back or 30 days apart. So, in our case, utilizing them on either end of a service trip we had actually planned was not permitted.
We utilized the Cancun part of our vacation package, however we won’t be using the rest of it.
THE BAIT AND SWITCH CANCUN ‘ALL INCLUSIVE’ THROUGH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS
The room was unclean, the toilet was broken, the lights flickered, which is simply the start. You see, they put us up, not in one of the luxury homes that they wished to offer us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the guys at the good property told us they called it. Genuine.
The one dining establishment that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you neglect the air conditioner dripping into our food) was actually a good experience. They changed up the menu every night, featuring foods from different parts of Mexico. And very willing to assist us with our Spanish.
Once over the shock of the distinction in the kind of place we believed we would be remaining, we maximized it. We satisfied some great individuals. Ate some excellent food. Took some good walks on the golf course. And got our rental car a couple days early to go off and check out the area.
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 feel like that is worth it.
Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, needs that you attend a promotional discussion during each stay. This is various from what we were told when they sold us the plan.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
