Bookvip Ripoff – Review 2022-3

We are deal hunters. Invest less, take a trip more … right?!Bookvip Ripoff… If you like to make your vacation travel dollar stretch, then like us, you may find yourself considering a trip bundle promotional offer. You should be prepared. Know that these promotional trip bundle companies are not 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 book the rest of our holiday package with them (some time in Florida). Let’s simply say that will not be occurring. We are simply going to forget and consume the expense about it.

From here on out, we will be booking vacation bundles through BookVIP. If you click over to their site, you will see that it is complete of the cheapest getaway bundles to some of the most popular locations.

Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was remarkable. Maybe the Dreams spoiled us. This location was off-hook. It was everything we had actually hoped for and after that some.

One quick note … We have only utilized BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Logic informs me that not every resort vacation package is going to supply a comparable experience. It really is all going to boil down to the research study you put in.

Looking into the homes used on BookVIP can be a little bit of a challenge. They don’t advertise the real name of the resorts. Instead, they utilize phony names. However if you really wish to sleuth out the location you will be remaining a bit of investigative deal with Google to match up the pictures will expose the true identity of the property you are thinking about. We didn’t trouble going that far. There was a lot of information on the BookVIP website to help us feel comfy with making our booking.

What we love about scheduling with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. When you have done your research and you are all set, schedule. You will understand what you are getting. You know ahead of time if the dates you wish to travel are readily available. There is time to compare the facilities and restaurants. This is a big contrast to the promotional getaway 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 ready to make your reservation with BookVIP. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive expense around $720 after whatever was stated and done. In our case, part of the surcharge was to cover tips for the resort staff. After the experience we had, we found this to be well worth it.

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

Are you on the calling lists? After our first marketing resort stay, we began getting call offering vacation plans to various destinations. That is how we wound up with a getaway bundle including our newest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief remain in Florida and elsewhere.

These travel sales calls are always a high-pressure circumstance unless you just hang up. State no adequate times and they will keep dropping the price to where it in fact sounds like a great deal. There isn’t much time to look into the getaway properties they are providing.

They drew us in with a stay in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the proximity to Belize) and some time in Florida (hi, sailboat shopping!). So we pulled the trigger and purchased a package. However utilizing it, that is an entire various story.

Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to in fact utilize the trip time. There is a great deal of fine print that makes travel planning really hard and potentially a lot more costly. They do not expose these details during the sales call.

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

When you call to ask for your preferred dates, they require you to fill out a long form requiring all the info that they already have. You then have to wait about a week to see if your dates are even readily available. Unless your itinerary will just include your stay at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel very inconvenient.

Planning budget friendly flights, or available Airbnb remains in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts vacation plan is extremely difficult. 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 plan included a stay in Orlando and a remain in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts needs that those stays be back to back or 1 month apart. So, in our case, utilizing them on either end of an organization trip we had prepared was not allowed.

We utilized the Cancun part of our holiday plan, however we won’t 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, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the guys at the good home told us they called it.

Now, to be reasonable, Laguna Suites wasn’t all bad. The one restaurant that was consisted of in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you overlook the ac system dripping into our food) was actually a great experience. They changed up the menu every night, featuring foods from different parts of Mexico. And the staff was remarkable. Really friendly and accommodating. And extremely going to help us with our Spanish.

Once over the shock of the distinction in the kind of place we thought we would be staying, we made the many of it. And picked up our rental automobile a couple days early to go off and check out the location.

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

Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, needs that you participate in an advertising discussion throughout each stay. When they offered us the bundle, this is different from what we were informed. When you are remaining someplace for just 2 nights is a huge portion of time, a two-hour sales pitch. They offered us 4 various stays, that means as much as 8 hours of moderately high-pressure sales! No thanks.

OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
