Bookvip Reviews 2016 – Review 2022-3

We are bargain hunters. Invest less, travel more … right?!Bookvip Reviews 2016… If you like to make your getaway travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might find yourself thinking about a vacation bundle promotional deal. You must be prepared. Know that these advertising holiday bundle companies are not at all equal.

After the pulled down of our recent remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply left the phone from trying to schedule the rest of our trip bundle with them (a long time in Florida). Let’s just state that will not be happening. We are just going to forget and eat the expense about it.

From here on out, we will be scheduling trip plans through BookVIP. If you click over to their website, you will see that it is full of the most affordable getaway packages to some of the most popular destinations.

Our very first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was amazing. Possibly the Dreams spoiled us.

One quick note … We have actually only utilized BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Logic tells me that not every resort trip plan is going to offer a similar experience. It really is all going to boil down to the research you put in.

Looking into the residential or commercial properties used on BookVIP can be a bit of a challenge. They do not promote the real name of the resorts. Instead, they utilize phony names. If you really desire to sleuth out the location you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the pictures will reveal the real identity of the residential or commercial property you are thinking about. We didn’t bother going that far. There was lots of info on the BookVIP website to assist us feel comfortable with making our reservation.

What we love about booking with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. Reserve when you have done your research study and you are ready. You will understand what you are getting. If the dates you desire to take a trip are available, you understand ahead of time. There is time to compare the dining establishments and facilities. This is a big contrast to the advertising holiday package sales calls I will discuss in the next area.

Simply be prepared for a couple of additional resort charges and taxes when you are all set to make your appointment with BookVIP. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive cost around $720 after whatever was said and done. In our case, part of the added fee was to cover ideas for the resort staff. After the experience we had, we discovered this to be well worth it.

OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Reviews 2016
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. If this had actually been our very first experience, we likely would not have actually taken part in another promotional offer. It was that bad.

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

These travel sales calls are always a high-pressure situation unless you just hang up. State no sufficient times and they will keep dropping the cost to where it really sounds like a great offer. There isn’t much time to investigate the getaway residential or commercial properties they are providing.

They drew us in with a remain in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the proximity to Belize) and some time in Florida (hello, sailboat shopping!). We pulled the trigger and bought a plan. However utilizing it, that is a whole various story.

Premier Travel Resorts does not make it easy to really utilize the trip time. There is a great deal of fine print that makes travel preparation extremely difficult and possibly a lot more costly. They don’t expose these details throughout the sales call.

IF YOU PURCHASE A GETAWAY PLAN WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS, THIS IS WHAT YOU OUGHT TO BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only book your dates 45-90 days ahead of time. 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 already have. You then need to wait about a week to see if your dates are even available. Unless your travel plans will just include your remain at their resort, this makes planning the rest of your travel very inconvenient.

Planning budget friendly flights, or readily available Airbnb remains in conjunction with your Premier Travel Resorts vacation bundle is extremely challenging. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to stay at after our stay at the resort was booked 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 requires that those stays be back to back or one month apart. So, in our case, utilizing them on either end of a company trip we had prepared was not allowed.

We utilized the Cancun portion of our trip package, however we will not be using 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 high-end homes that they desired to offer us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the guys at the great home 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 air conditioning unit leaking 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 fantastic. Very friendly and accommodating. And extremely going to assist us with our Spanish.

Once over the shock of the difference in the sort of place we believed we would be staying, we made the most of it. We fulfilled some nice people. Consumed some terrific food. Took some great strolls on the golf course. And picked up our rental car a couple days early to go off and check out the location.

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

Premier Travel Resorts, however, requires that you attend a promotional presentation during each stay. This is various from what we were informed when they sold us the bundle.

OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
