Spend less, travel more … right?! If you like to make your holiday travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might discover yourself considering a holiday bundle advertising offer. Know that these promotional getaway package business are not at all equivalent.
After the pulled down of our recent stay at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I just left the phone from trying to schedule the rest of our vacation package with them (some time in Florida). Let’s just say that will not be happening. We are simply going to forget and consume the cost about it.
From here on out, we will be scheduling getaway plans through BookVIP. If you click over to their website, you will see that it is full of the most affordable getaway bundles to some of the most popular destinations.
Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was fantastic. Perhaps the Dreams spoiled us.
One fast note … We have actually only used BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Logic informs me that not every resort vacation plan is going to supply a comparable experience. It actually is all going to come down to the research you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
Looking into the properties used on BookVIP can be a bit of a difficulty. They do not market the real name of the resorts. Rather, they utilize fake names. However if you truly wish to sleuth out the location you will be remaining a little bit of investigative deal with Google to match up the photos will reveal the true identity of the residential or commercial property you are considering. We didn’t trouble going that far. There was a lot of info on the BookVIP website to help us feel comfortable with making our reservation.
What we like about scheduling with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. When you have done your research and you are all set, book. You will know what you are getting. If the dates you desire to travel are readily available, you understand ahead of time. There is time to compare the amenities and dining establishments. This is a huge contrast to the marketing getaway bundle sales calls I will talk about in the next section.
When you are all set to make your reservation with BookVIP, just be prepared for a couple of extra resort fees and taxes. In our case, part of the additional charge was to cover ideas for the resort staff.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip.Com Scam
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. If this had been our very first experience, we highly likely would not have actually taken part in another marketing deal. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our first marketing resort stay, we started getting phone calls providing holiday plans to various locations. That is how we ended up with a vacation bundle including our newest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple short remain in Florida and somewhere else.
These travel sales calls are always a high-pressure circumstance unless you just hang up. Say no enough times and they will keep dropping the price to where it in fact seems like a good deal. If they catch your interest and you choose to purchase, it is needed that you do so before completion of the telephone call. There isn’t much time to research the holiday properties they are offering. You might have a few seconds to rapidly pull up some images but that has to do with it. A photo is worth a thousand words, however unworthy nearly as much as having the ability to read a few 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 shot and purchased a plan. Using it, that is a whole various story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to in fact use the holiday time. There is a lot of fine print that makes travel planning extremely hard and potentially a lot more expensive. They don’t reveal these details throughout the sales call.
THIS IS WHAT YOU SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only reserve schedule dates 45-90 days ahead of time if YOU PURCHASE A VACATION PLAN WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS. Okay, reasonable enough.
When you call to ask for your favored dates, they need you to fill out a long form needing all the details that they currently have. You then have to wait about a week to see if your dates are even offered. Unless your travel plans will just include your remain at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel very bothersome.
Planning affordable flights, or readily available Airbnb stays in conjunction with your Premier Travel Resorts vacation package is very challenging. In our case, the Airbnb we wished to stay at after our remain at the resort was scheduled by the time Premier Travel Resorts got back to us.
Our bundle consisted of a remain in Orlando and a stay in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts needs that those stays be back to back or 1 month apart. So, in our case, utilizing them on either end of an organization trip we had actually prepared was not enabled.
We used the Cancun part of our getaway plan, but we will not be using the rest of it.
THE BAIT AND SWITCH CANCUN ‘ALL INCLUSIVE’ THROUGH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS
The room was filthy, the toilet was chipped, the lights flickered, and that is simply the start. You see, they put us up, not in among the luxury residential or commercial properties that they wanted to offer us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the guys at the great property told us they called it. For real.
The one restaurant that was consisted of in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you overlook the air conditioner leaking into our food) was actually a nice experience. They changed up the menu every night, featuring foods from various parts of Mexico. And extremely prepared to help us with our Spanish.
As soon as over the shock of the distinction in the kind of location we believed we would be remaining, we made the many of it. And chose up our rental automobile 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 affordable costs. No biggie. We seem like that deserves it.
Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, requires that you go to a marketing discussion during each stay. This is various from what we were told when they sold us the package.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
