Spend less, travel more … right?! If you like to make your trip travel dollar stretch, then like us, you may discover yourself considering a getaway bundle marketing deal. Know that these marketing trip plan business are not at all equivalent.
After the pulled down of our recent remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I just got off the phone from trying to book the remainder of our holiday plan with them (a long time in Florida). Let’s simply say that will not be happening. We are simply going to eat the expense and forget about it.
From here on out, we will be scheduling getaway plans through BookVIP. Here’s why …
Undoubtedly, you’ve seen the Facebook sponsored posts. You will see that it is full of the least expensive trip plans to some of the most popular locations if you click over to their site. 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 remarkable. Maybe the Dreams ruined us.
One quick note … We have just utilized BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Logic tells me that not every resort holiday plan is going to supply 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 don’t advertise the real name of the resorts. If you actually want to sleuth out the place you will be remaining a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the images will expose the true identity of the residential or commercial property you are thinking about. There was plenty of info on the BookVIP website to assist us feel comfortable with making our booking.
What we enjoy about scheduling with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. When you have actually done your research and you are all set, schedule. You will know 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 features. This is a huge contrast to the promotional holiday bundle sales calls I will talk about in the next area.
Simply be prepared for a couple of extra resort charges and taxes when you are prepared to make your booking with BookVIP. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive expense around $720 after everything was said and done. In our case, part of the added fee 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 Last Minute Riviera Maya Todo Incluido 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 likely would not have taken part in another promotional deal. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our very first advertising resort stay, we began getting phone calls offering holiday bundles to different destinations. That is how we ended up with a getaway bundle 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 situation unless you simply hang up. Say no adequate times and they will keep dropping the rate to where it really sounds like a good offer. There isn’t much time to investigate the vacation homes they are providing.
They drew us in with a stay in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the distance to Belize) and some time in Florida (hi, sailboat shopping!). We pulled the trigger and bought a bundle. Using it, that is an entire various story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to in fact use the holiday time. There is a great deal of fine print that makes travel preparation very challenging and potentially a lot more costly. They do not reveal these information during the sales call.
IF YOU PURCHASE A VACATION PACKAGE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS, THIS IS WHAT YOU OUGHT TO BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only schedule your dates 45-90 days ahead of time. Okay, reasonable enough.
When you call to ask for your preferred dates, they require you to fill out a long kind needing all the information that they currently have. You then have to wait about a week to see if your dates are even available. Unless your itinerary will only consist of your remain at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel very bothersome.
Preparation affordable flights, or available Airbnb stays in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts trip bundle is extremely challenging. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to stay at after our stay at the resort was scheduled by the time Premier Travel Resorts returned to us.
Our package consisted of a stay in Orlando and a remain in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts needs that those stays be back to back or 30 days apart. So, in our case, utilizing them on either end of a business journey we had actually prepared was not enabled.
We used the Cancun portion of our vacation plan, however we won’t 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 sell us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the men at the great residential or commercial property informed us they called it.
The one dining establishment that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you ignore the air conditioner leaking into our food) was really a nice experience. They altered up the menu every night, featuring foods from different parts of Mexico. And really willing to assist us with our Spanish.
Once over the shock of the difference in the type of place we believed we would be staying, we made the most of it. We satisfied some good people. Ate some great food. Took some good strolls on the golf course. And got our rental vehicle a couple days early to go off and explore 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 seem like that is worth it.
Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, needs that you attend an advertising discussion during each stay. This is various from what we were told when they offered us the plan.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
