Spend less, take a trip more … right?! If you like to make your trip travel dollar stretch, then like us, you may find yourself thinking about a holiday package promotional deal. Know that these marketing vacation package business are not at all equivalent.
After the let down of our current remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply got off the phone from trying to schedule the rest of our vacation package with them (some time in Florida). Let’s simply say that will not be taking place. We are just going to forget and eat the expense about it.
From here on out, we will be scheduling holiday bundles through BookVIP. Here’s why …
Definitely, you have actually seen the Facebook sponsored posts. You will see that it is complete of the least expensive trip packages to some of the most popular destinations if you click over to their site. They have some seriously elegant looking stays all over the world at some crazy good rates.
Our very first all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was remarkable. Perhaps the Dreams ruined us. This location was off-hook. It was everything we had actually wished for and then some.
One quick note … We have just utilized BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Logic tells me that not every resort holiday package is going to supply a comparable experience. It actually is all going to boil down to the research you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
They do not advertise the actual name of the resorts. If you truly 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 home you are considering. There was plenty of information on the BookVIP website to assist us feel comfortable with making our appointment.
What we enjoy about reserving with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. When you have done your research and you are all set, book. You will know what you are getting. If the dates you desire to take a trip are offered, you know ahead of time. There is time to compare the facilities and dining establishments. This is a big contrast to the promotional vacation bundle sales calls I will talk about in the next section.
When you are all set to make your reservation with BookVIP, simply be prepared for a few extra resort costs and taxes. In our case, part of the extra charge was to cover suggestions for the resort personnel.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Other Companies Like Bookvip.Com
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. We very likely would not have taken part in another advertising offer if this had been our very first experience. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our first advertising resort stay, we started getting phone calls providing trip plans to numerous locations. That is how we wound up with a getaway package including our latest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple short remain in Florida and in other places.
These travel sales calls are always a high-pressure situation unless you simply hang up. Say no enough times and they will keep dropping the rate to where it in fact sounds like a bargain. If they capture your interest and you decide to buy, it is needed that you do so before completion of the telephone call. There isn’t much time to look into the vacation residential or commercial properties they are using. You might have a few seconds to quickly pull up some images but that has to do with it. A picture is worth a thousand words, but unworthy almost as much as being able to check out a few evaluations.
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 (hi, sailboat shopping!). We pulled the trigger and bought a package. However using it, that is an entire different story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to really utilize the trip time. There is a lot of small print that makes travel planning extremely hard and potentially a lot more expensive. They do not expose these information during the sales call.
THIS IS WHAT YOU MUST BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only reserve schedule dates 45-90 days ahead of time if YOU PURCHASE A HOLIDAY PLAN WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS. Okay, fair enough.
When you call to ask for your preferred dates, they require you to fill out a long form needing all the information that they already have. You then have to wait about a week to see if your dates are even offered. Unless your travel plans will just consist of your remain at their resort, this makes planning the rest of your travel very inconvenient.
Planning budget-friendly flights, or offered Airbnb remains in conjunction with your Premier Travel Resorts getaway bundle is really difficult. In our case, the Airbnb we wished to stay at after our stay at the resort was booked by the time Premier Travel Resorts got back to us.
Our package consisted of a remain in Orlando and a remain in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts requires that those stays be back to back or thirty days apart. So, in our case, utilizing them on either end of a service trip we had planned was not enabled.
We used the Cancun portion of our getaway bundle, but we will not be utilizing the rest of it.
THE BAIT AND SWITCH CANCUN ‘ALL INCLUSIVE’ THROUGH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS
The space was filthy, the toilet was chipped, the lights flickered, which is simply the beginning. You see, they put us up, not in among the high-end residential or commercial properties that they wished to offer us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the people at the great property told us they called it. For real.
The one dining establishment that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you neglect the air conditioner dripping into our food) was actually a great experience. They altered up the menu every night, including foods from various parts of Mexico. And extremely ready to help us with our Spanish.
Twice the shock of the difference in the type of location we believed we would be staying, we made the most of it. We fulfilled some great people. Ate some great food. Took some great walks 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 affordable costs. No biggie. We feel like that deserves it.
Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, needs that you participate in a marketing discussion throughout each stay. This is various from what we were told when they sold us the package.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
