Bookvip Coronavirus – Review 2022-3

Invest less, travel more … right?! If you like to make your trip travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might find yourself considering a holiday plan promotional offer. Know that these advertising vacation bundle business are not at all equal.

After the pulled down of our current remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I just left the phone from trying to reserve the remainder of our vacation plan with them (some time in Florida). Let’s simply say that will not be taking place. We are just going to consume the cost and forget about it.

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

Surely, you’ve seen the Facebook sponsored posts. If you click over to their website, you will see that it has plenty of the least expensive trip packages to a few of the most popular destinations. They have some seriously glamorous looking stays all over the world at some insane excellent prices.

Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was fantastic. Possibly the Dreams ruined us.

One fast note … We have actually just used BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Reasoning informs me that not every resort vacation plan is going to supply a comparable experience. It truly is all going to boil down to the research you put in.

They don’t advertise the actual name of the resorts. If you actually want 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 info on the BookVIP site to assist us feel comfortable with making our reservation.

You understand ahead of time if the dates you want to travel are readily available. There is time to compare the restaurants and features. This is a huge contrast to the promotional vacation bundle sales calls I will talk about in the next area.

Simply be prepared for a couple of additional resort costs and taxes when you are prepared to make your appointment with BookVIP. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive expense around $720 after everything was stated and done. In our case, part of the service charge was to cover tips for the resort personnel. After the experience we had, we found this to be well worth it.

OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Coronavirus
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the best. If this had been our first experience, we highly likely would not have actually participated in another marketing offer. It was that bad.

Are you on the calling lists? After our very first advertising resort stay, we began getting telephone call providing vacation plans to different destinations. That is how we ended up with a vacation plan including our latest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief remain in Florida and elsewhere.

These travel sales calls are constantly a high-pressure situation unless you just hang up. Say no adequate times and they will keep dropping the cost to where it in fact sounds like an excellent deal. There isn’t much time to research the vacation properties they are offering.

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 (hi, sailboat shopping!). So we pulled the trigger and purchased a bundle. Utilizing it, that is an entire different story.

Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to really use the trip time. There is a lot of fine print that makes travel preparation extremely hard and potentially a lot more costly. They don’t reveal these information during the sales call.

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

However, when you call to ask for your preferred dates, they need you to complete a long kind requiring all the information that they already have. You then have to wait about a week to see if your dates are even available. Unless your itinerary will just include your stay at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel very inconvenient.

Preparation budget friendly flights, or available Airbnb stays in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts holiday package is extremely hard. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to remain at after our stay at the resort was reserved by the time Premier Travel Resorts got back to us.

Our package consisted of a stay in Orlando and a stay 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 company trip we had prepared was not allowed.

We used the Cancun portion of our vacation package, 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 homes that they wanted to offer us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the people at the nice residential or commercial property told us they called it.

Now, to be fair, Laguna Suites wasn’t all bad. The one restaurant that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you neglect the air conditioner dripping into our food) was really a good experience. They changed up the menu every night, including foods from various parts of Mexico. And the personnel was amazing. Really friendly and accommodating. And really willing to assist us with our Spanish.

Twice the shock of the distinction in the type of place we believed we would be remaining, we took advantage of it. We fulfilled some good individuals. Ate some excellent food. Took some good walks on the golf course. And picked up our rental vehicle a couple days early to go off and check out the area.

THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts need that you participate in a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their reduced rates. No biggie. We seem like that is worth it.

Premier Travel Resorts, however, requires that you attend a marketing discussion throughout each stay. When they offered us the plan, this is various from what we were informed. When you are remaining somewhere for just two nights is a huge portion of time, a two-hour sales pitch. They offered us 4 various stays, that implies as much as eight hours of moderately high-pressure sales! No thanks.

OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY RANT
