Bookvip Panama City Beach – Review 2022-3

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

After the pulled down of our recent remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply got off the phone from attempting to schedule the rest of our holiday plan with them (some time in Florida). Let’s simply state that will not be taking place. We are simply going to eat the expense and forget about it.

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

Certainly, you have actually seen the Facebook sponsored posts. You will see that it is complete of the most inexpensive getaway plans to some of the most popular destinations if you click over to their website. They have some seriously glamorous looking stays all over the world at some insane great rates.

Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was fantastic. Possibly the Dreams spoiled us. This place was off-hook. It was everything we had expected and after that some.

One fast note … We have actually just utilized BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Logic informs me that not every resort holiday package is going to provide a similar experience. It really is all going to come down to the research you put in.

They don’t market the real name of the resorts. If you actually desire to sleuth out the place you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the images will reveal the true identity of the residential or commercial property you are considering. There was plenty of details on the BookVIP site to assist us feel comfy with making our appointment.

What we like about reserving 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, reserve. You will understand what you are getting. You know ahead of time if the dates you want to travel are available. There is time to compare the amenities and restaurants. This is a huge contrast to the advertising trip package sales calls I will talk about in the next area.

When you are prepared to make your reservation with BookVIP, simply be prepared for a few additional resort charges and taxes. In our case, part of the extra charge was to cover ideas for the resort staff.

OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Panama City Beach
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. We very likely would not have actually gotten involved in another advertising offer if this had actually been our very first experience. It was that bad.

Are you on the calling lists? After our very first advertising resort stay, we began getting phone calls using getaway bundles to numerous destinations. That is how we ended up with a trip plan including our newest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple short stays in Florida and in other places.

These travel sales calls are always a high-pressure scenario unless you simply hang up. Say no adequate times and they will keep dropping the rate to where it really seems like a bargain. It is required that you do so before the end of the phone call if they catch your interest and you decide to buy. There isn’t much time to look into the trip properties they are providing. You may have a couple of seconds to rapidly pull up some photos but that has to do with it. An image is worth a thousand words, however unworthy almost as much as having the ability to read a couple of evaluations.

They drew us in with a stay in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the proximity to Belize) and a long time in Florida (hello, sailboat shopping!). So we pulled the trigger and purchased a bundle. Utilizing it, that is a whole different story.

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

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

When you call to ask for your favored dates, they require you to fill out a long kind requiring all the info that they currently have. You then have to wait about a week to see if your dates are even readily available. Unless your travel plans will only include your stay at their resort, this makes planning the rest of your travel extremely inconvenient.

Planning economical flights, or readily available Airbnb remains in conjunction with your Premier Travel Resorts vacation package is extremely hard. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to remain at after our stay at the resort was scheduled by the time Premier Travel Resorts returned to us.

Our bundle included a remain in Orlando and a stay in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts needs that those stays be back to back or one month apart. In our case, using them on either end of a business trip we had planned was not permitted.

We used the Cancun part of our holiday bundle, however we won’t 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, which is just the start. You see, they put us up, not in one of the high-end residential or commercial properties that they wished to sell us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the people at the good residential or commercial property told us they called it. Genuine.

Now, to be reasonable, Laguna Suites wasn’t all bad. The one dining establishment that was consisted of in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you ignore the air conditioning system dripping into our food) was in fact a nice experience. They altered the menu every night, featuring foods from different parts of Mexico. And the staff was remarkable. Very friendly and accommodating. And very happy to assist us with our Spanish.

Twice the shock of the difference in the kind of location we believed we would be staying, we made the most of it. We met some great individuals. Ate some terrific food. Took some great strolls on the golf course. And picked up our rental cars and truck a couple days early to go off and explore the area.

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

Premier Travel Resorts, however, requires that you go to a marketing discussion during each stay. This is different from what we were informed when they sold us the package. A two-hour sales pitch when you are staying somewhere for only two nights is a huge portion of time. They offered us 4 different stays, that suggests as much as 8 hours of moderately high-pressure sales! No thanks.

OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
