We are deal hunters. Spend less, travel more … right?!Bookvip Puerto Vallarta Tripadvisor… If you like to make your holiday travel dollar stretch, then like us, you may find yourself thinking about a trip bundle marketing deal. However you should be prepared. Know that these promotional holiday bundle business are not equivalent.
After the let down of our current stay at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply left the phone from trying to schedule the remainder of our holiday package with them (some time in Florida). Let’s just state that will not be occurring. We are just going to forget and eat the cost about it.
From here on out, we will be booking trip packages through BookVIP. Here’s why …
Surely, you have actually seen the Facebook sponsored posts. You will see that it is full of the cheapest getaway plans to some of the most popular locations if you click over to their website. They have some seriously elegant looking stays all over the world at some insane good prices.
Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was incredible. Possibly the Dreams spoiled us.
One fast note … We have just used BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Logic informs me that not every resort holiday plan is going to offer a similar experience. It actually is all going to come down to the research study you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
They do not advertise the real name of the resorts. If you truly 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 details 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. Schedule when you have actually done your research study and you are ready. You will understand what you are getting. You know ahead of time if the dates you wish to take a trip are available. There is time to compare the facilities and dining establishments. This is a big contrast to the promotional vacation package sales calls I will talk about in the next section.
When you are all set to make your appointment with BookVIP, just be prepared for a few additional resort charges 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 Puerto Vallarta Tripadvisor
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. We extremely likely would not have gotten involved in another promotional deal if this had been our first experience. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our first marketing resort stay, we started getting telephone call using vacation plans to different locations. That is how we wound up with a getaway bundle including our latest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple short stays in Florida and in other places.
These travel sales calls are constantly a high-pressure circumstance unless you simply hang up. Say no enough times and they will keep dropping the price to where it really seems like a good deal. It is required that you do so prior to the end of the phone call if they capture your interest and you choose to purchase. There isn’t much time to look into the vacation homes they are providing. You might have a couple of seconds to quickly pull up some images but that is about it. A picture is worth a thousand words, however unworthy nearly as much as having the ability to read a couple of reviews.
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 (hey there, sailboat shopping!). So we shot and purchased a bundle. Using it, that is a whole different story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it easy to in fact use the getaway time. There is a great deal of small print that makes travel preparation really tough and potentially a lot more expensive. They don’t expose these details during the sales call.
IF YOU PURCHASE A VACATION BUNDLE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS, THIS IS WHAT YOU OUGHT TO BE PREPARED FOR …
You can just reserve your dates 45-90 days ahead of time. Okay, reasonable enough.
However, when you call to request your favored dates, they need you to complete a long type requiring all the details that they already 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 stay at their resort, this makes planning the rest of your travel really inconvenient.
Planning budget-friendly flights, or readily available Airbnb remains in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts vacation package is extremely tough. In our case, the Airbnb we wished to stay at after our stay at the resort was booked by the time Premier Travel Resorts got back 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 thirty days apart. So, in our case, using them on either end of a company trip we had prepared was not allowed.
We used the Cancun part of our trip package, but we will not be using the rest of it.
THE BAIT AND SWITCH CANCUN ‘ALL INCLUSIVE’ THROUGH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS
The space was dirty, the toilet was cracked, the lights flickered, which is just the start. You see, they put us up, not in among the high-end homes that they wanted to sell us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the men at the good property informed us they called it. Genuine.
Now, to be reasonable, Laguna Suites wasn’t all bad. The one restaurant that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you neglect the a/c unit leaking into our food) was really a great experience. They altered the menu every night, including foods from various parts of Mexico. And the staff was incredible. Really friendly and accommodating. And really ready to assist us with our Spanish.
Once over the shock of the difference in the kind of place we believed we would be remaining, we maximized it. We fulfilled some great people. Consumed some terrific food. Took some nice walks on the golf course. And picked up 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 attend a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their affordable rates. No biggie. We seem like that deserves it.
Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, requires that you participate in a marketing discussion throughout each stay. This is various from what we were informed when they offered us the plan.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
