Invest less, take a trip more … right?! If you like to make your vacation travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might discover yourself thinking about a getaway package advertising deal. Know that these marketing trip package companies are not at all equivalent.
After the let down of our current stay at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I just got off the phone from attempting to book the rest of our getaway plan with them (a long time in Florida). Let’s just state that will not be occurring. We are just going to consume the cost and forget about it.
From here on out, we will be scheduling vacation bundles through BookVIP. If you click over to their website, you will see that it is complete of the most inexpensive vacation packages to some of the most popular locations.
Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was fantastic. Perhaps the Dreams ruined us. This place was off-hook. It was everything we had hoped for and after that some.
One fast note … We have just used BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Logic informs me that not every resort vacation package is going to supply a comparable experience. It actually is all going to boil down to the research study you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
They do not promote the actual name of the resorts. If you truly want to sleuth out the location you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the photos will reveal the real identity of the residential or commercial property you are considering. There was plenty of info on the BookVIP website to help us feel comfortable with making our booking.
What we like about reserving with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. Schedule when you have done your research and you are ready. You will understand what you are getting. You understand ahead of time if the dates you wish to take a trip are offered. There is time to compare the restaurants and amenities. This is a big contrast to the promotional vacation package sales calls I will speak about in the next area.
When you are ready to make your appointment with BookVIP, just be gotten ready for a few extra resort fees and taxes. 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 surcharge was to cover pointers for the resort staff. After the experience we had, we discovered this to be well worth it.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Grand Sirenis Cancun Bookvip
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. If this had been our first experience, we highly likely would not have actually taken part in another marketing deal. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our first marketing resort stay, we began getting call using vacation plans to different destinations. That is how we ended up with a vacation plan including our most recent Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief remain in Florida and elsewhere.
These travel sales calls are constantly a high-pressure circumstance unless you just hang up. Say no enough times and they will keep dropping the price to where it actually sounds like a good deal. It is required that you do so prior to the end of the phone call if they catch your interest and you choose to buy. There isn’t much time to look into the holiday homes they are providing. You might have a few seconds to quickly bring up some photos but that has to do with it. An image is worth a thousand words, however not worth nearly as much as being able to read a couple of reviews.
They drew us in with a remain 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 bought a package. But using it, that is a whole various story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to really utilize the vacation time. There is a great deal of fine print that makes travel planning extremely tough and potentially a lot more expensive. They do not expose these information during the sales call.
IF YOU ACQUIRE A GETAWAY 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.
Nevertheless, when you call to request your preferred dates, they require you to complete a long form requiring all the information that they currently have. You then need 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 planning the rest of your travel very bothersome.
Planning cost effective flights, or offered Airbnb remains in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts holiday bundle is very tough. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to remain at after our remain at the resort was booked by the time Premier Travel Resorts got back to us.
Our plan included a remain in Orlando and a stay in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts needs that those stays be back to back or thirty days apart. So, in our case, utilizing them on either end of a business journey we had actually planned was not permitted.
We utilized the Cancun part of our trip bundle, however 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 high-end residential or commercial properties that they desired to offer us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the men at the good home told us they called it.
The one restaurant that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you overlook the air conditioner leaking into our food) was really a good experience. They changed up the menu every night, including foods from various parts of Mexico. And really willing to help us with our Spanish.
Twice the shock of the difference in the sort of location we thought we would be remaining, we made the most of it. We satisfied some nice people. Ate some terrific food. Took some nice walks on the golf course. And picked up our rental automobile a couple days early to go off and explore the area.
THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts need that you go to a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their affordable costs. No biggie. We seem like that deserves it.
Premier Travel Resorts, however, requires that you participate in an advertising discussion during each stay. When they sold us the bundle, this is different from what we were told. A two-hour sales pitch when you are staying somewhere for only 2 nights is a big piece of time. They sold us four various stays, that implies approximately 8 hours of reasonably high-pressure sales! No thanks.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY RANT
