Bookvip Com Westgate Orlando – Review 2022-3

Spend less, travel more … right?! If you like to make your vacation travel dollar stretch, then like us, you may find yourself considering a trip package advertising deal. Know that these promotional vacation plan companies are not at all equal.

After the let down of our recent remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I just got off the phone from trying to book the remainder of our getaway bundle with them (some time in Florida). Let’s just state that will not be taking place. We are simply going to forget and eat the expense about it.

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

Undoubtedly, you’ve seen the Facebook sponsored posts. If you click over to their website, you will see that it is full of the cheapest holiday plans to a few of the most popular locations. They have some seriously glamorous looking stays all over the world at some insane good rates.

Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was remarkable. Perhaps the Dreams ruined us. This location was off-hook. It was whatever we had hoped for and then some.

One quick note … We have just used BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Logic tells me that not every resort trip plan is going to supply a similar experience. It truly is all going to come down to the research you put in.

They do not market the real name of the resorts. If you truly want to sleuth out the location you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the pictures will reveal the true identity of the property you are considering. There was plenty of information on the BookVIP site to help us feel comfortable with making our booking.

You understand ahead of time if the dates you desire to take a trip are offered. There is time to compare the dining establishments and features. This is a big contrast to the promotional getaway bundle sales calls I will talk about in the next area.

When you are ready to make your booking with BookVIP, simply be gotten ready for a couple of additional resort fees and taxes. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive cost around $720 after whatever was stated and done. In our case, part of the added fee was to cover pointers 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 Westgate Orlando
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the best. We really likely would not have participated in another promotional offer if this had been our first experience. It was that bad.

Are you on the calling lists? After our first marketing resort stay, we began getting telephone call offering holiday plans to different destinations. That is how we wound up with a vacation plan including our most recent Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief stays in Florida and somewhere else.

These travel sales calls are always a high-pressure situation unless you just hang up. Say no adequate times and they will keep dropping the price to where it really sounds like a bargain. It is required that you do so before the end of the phone call if they record your interest and you decide to purchase. There isn’t much time to investigate the trip residential or commercial properties they are using. You may have a few seconds to quickly pull up some images however that has to do with it. A picture deserves a thousand words, however unworthy nearly 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 distance to Belize) and some time in Florida (hey there, sailboat shopping!). So we pulled the trigger and purchased a bundle. Using it, that is an entire different story.

Premier Travel Resorts does not make it easy to actually utilize the trip time. There is a lot of fine print that makes travel planning very tough and potentially a lot more pricey. They don’t reveal these information during the sales call.

THIS IS WHAT YOU MUST BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only just your dates 45-90 days ahead of time if YOU PURCHASE A TRIP PACKAGE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS. Okay, fair enough.

Nevertheless, when you call to request your preferred dates, they need you to fill out a long type requiring all the details that they currently have. You then need to wait about a week to see if your dates are even offered. Unless your itinerary will just include your stay at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel really inconvenient.

Planning economical flights, or offered Airbnb stays in conjunction with your Premier Travel Resorts holiday plan is really hard. In our case, the Airbnb we wished to stay at after our remain at the resort was booked by the time Premier Travel Resorts got back to us.

Our package 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. In our case, utilizing them on either end of a service trip we had planned was not enabled.

We used the Cancun part of our getaway plan, but 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 luxury residential or commercial properties that they wanted to offer us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the men at the good property informed us they called it.

Now, to be fair, Laguna Suites wasn’t all bad. The one dining establishment that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you ignore the ac system leaking into our food) was in fact a nice experience. They altered the menu every night, featuring foods from various parts of Mexico. And the staff was incredible. Very friendly and accommodating. And very ready to assist us with our Spanish.

Once over the shock of the difference in the type of location we believed we would be staying, we took advantage of it. We met some nice people. Ate some great food. Took some great strolls on the golf course. And got our rental vehicle a couple days early to go off and explore the location.

THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts require that you participate in a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their discounted prices. No biggie. We feel like that deserves it.

Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, requires that you go to a promotional presentation throughout each stay. When they offered us the package, this is various from what we were told. A two-hour sales pitch when you are staying somewhere for just 2 nights is a big chunk of time. They sold us four different stays, that indicates up to eight hours of moderately high-pressure sales! No thanks.

OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
