Invest less, travel more … right?! If you like to make your getaway travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might discover yourself thinking about a trip bundle marketing offer. Know that these advertising trip package business are not at all equal.
After the let down of our current stay at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I just left the phone from attempting to reserve the remainder of our holiday bundle with them (a long time in Florida). Let’s just state that will not be occurring. We are just going to forget and consume the cost about it.
From here on out, we will be booking holiday packages through BookVIP. Here’s why …
Surely, you have actually seen the Facebook sponsored posts. If you click over to their site, you will see that it is full of the most affordable holiday packages to a few of the most popular locations. They have some seriously glamorous looking stays all over the world at some crazy good rates.
Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was incredible. 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 actually just used BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Reasoning tells me that not every resort holiday bundle is going to provide a comparable experience. It truly is all going to come down to the research study you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
They do not promote the real name of the resorts. If you truly want to sleuth out the place you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the pictures will reveal the true identity of the property you are considering. There was plenty of information on the BookVIP website to help us feel comfy with making our appointment.
What we love about booking with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. When you have actually done your research study and you are all set, reserve. You will understand what you are getting. If the dates you want to travel are available, you know ahead of time. There is time to compare the dining establishments and facilities. This is a big contrast to the advertising getaway bundle sales calls I will speak about in the next area.
When you are ready to make your reservation with BookVIP, just be prepared for a couple of additional resort fees and taxes. In our case, part of the additional charge was to cover suggestions for the resort personnel.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Http Bookvip.Com Hotel_Details Grand-cancun-palm-beach Id 45&Pid 118&Arrivedate
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the best. If this had actually been our very first experience, we highly likely would not have taken part in another advertising deal. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our first marketing resort stay, we began getting phone calls using trip bundles to different locations. That is how we ended up with a getaway package including our latest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple short remain in Florida and elsewhere.
These travel sales calls are constantly a high-pressure scenario 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 needed that you do so before the end of the phone call if they catch your interest and you choose to acquire. There isn’t much time to look into the getaway homes they are providing. You may have a couple of seconds to quickly pull up some photos however that has to do with it. A picture is worth a thousand words, but unworthy nearly as much as having the ability to read a couple of reviews.
They drew us in with a remain in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the distance to Belize) and some time in Florida (hey there, sailboat shopping!). So we pulled the trigger and bought a bundle. But utilizing it, that is an entire various story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it easy to really use the trip time. There is a lot of fine print that makes travel planning extremely tough and possibly a lot more pricey. They do not reveal these information throughout the sales call.
THIS IS WHAT YOU SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only reserve schedule dates 45-90 days ahead of time if YOU ACQUIRE A GETAWAY PLAN WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS. Okay, reasonable enough.
When you call to ask for your preferred dates, they require you to fill out a long kind needing all the details that they currently have. You then need to wait about a week to see if your dates are even available. Unless your travel plans will just consist of your remain at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel extremely bothersome.
Planning budget-friendly flights, or readily available Airbnb remains in conjunction with your Premier Travel Resorts trip plan is very hard. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to remain 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 needs that those stays be back to back or one month apart. In our case, utilizing them on either end of a company trip we had planned was not enabled.
We used the Cancun portion of our holiday bundle, but 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 sell us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the people at the great property told us they called it.
Now, to be reasonable, Laguna Suites wasn’t all bad. The one dining establishment that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you ignore the a/c unit dripping into our food) was in fact a nice experience. They changed up the menu every night, including foods from various parts of Mexico. And the staff was fantastic. Really friendly and accommodating. And extremely ready to help us with our Spanish.
Once over the shock of the distinction in the sort of place we thought we would be staying, we made the most of it. We met some nice individuals. Consumed some terrific food. Took some great walks on the golf course. 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 need that you attend a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their discounted prices. No biggie. We feel like that is worth it.
Premier Travel Resorts, however, needs that you attend a promotional presentation during each stay. This is different from what we were informed when they offered us the plan.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
