Spend less, take a trip more … right?! If you like to make your getaway travel dollar stretch, then like us, you may find yourself thinking about a vacation bundle marketing deal. Know that these promotional vacation bundle business are not at all equal.
After the pulled down of our current remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I just got off the phone from attempting to schedule the rest of our getaway bundle with them (some time in Florida). Let’s simply say that will not be occurring. We are simply going to consume the cost and forget about it.
From here on out, we will be reserving trip plans through BookVIP. If you click over to their website, you will see that it is complete of the cheapest getaway bundles to some of the most popular destinations.
Our very first all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was incredible. Perhaps the Dreams spoiled us. This place was off-hook. It was whatever we had actually wished for and after that some.
One fast note … We have actually only utilized BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Reasoning informs me that not every resort trip plan is going to offer a comparable experience. It really is all going to come down to the research you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
Looking into the homes offered on BookVIP can be a little a difficulty. They do not advertise the actual name of the resorts. Instead, they utilize phony names. But if you truly wish to sleuth out the location you will be remaining a bit of investigative work on Google to compare the images will expose the true identity of the property you are considering. We didn’t bother going that far. There was lots of info on the BookVIP website to assist us feel comfy with making our appointment.
What we enjoy 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. If the dates you desire to travel are available, you know ahead of time. There is time to compare the dining establishments and features. This is a huge contrast to the marketing getaway plan sales calls I will talk about in the next section.
When you are ready to make your reservation with BookVIP, simply be gotten ready for a few extra resort charges and taxes. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive cost around $720 after whatever was stated and done. In our case, part of the added fee was to cover tips for the resort personnel. After the experience we had, we found this to be well worth it.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Text From Bookvip Free Vacation
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the best. If this had been our first experience, we most likely would not have participated in another advertising deal. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our first advertising resort stay, we started getting telephone call providing getaway plans to different locations. That is how we wound up with a trip package including our latest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief stays in Florida and in other places.
These travel sales calls are always a high-pressure situation unless you just hang up. Say no sufficient times and they will keep dropping the price to where it really seems like a good deal. If they capture your interest and you decide to buy, it is needed that you do so before completion of the phone call. There isn’t much time to look into the holiday residential or commercial properties they are using. You may have a couple of seconds to rapidly bring up some pictures but that has to do with it. A photo deserves a thousand words, but not worth nearly as much as being able to read a few reviews.
They drew us in with a stay in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the proximity to Belize) and a long time in Florida (hi, sailboat shopping!). So we shot and purchased a package. Utilizing it, that is an entire various story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it easy to in fact utilize the holiday time. There is a great deal of fine print that makes travel planning really tough and possibly a lot more pricey. They don’t reveal these information throughout the sales call.
THIS IS WHAT YOU OUGHT TO BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only reserve schedule dates 45-90 days ahead of time if YOU PURCHASE A TRIP BUNDLE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS. Okay, fair enough.
However, when you call to ask for your favored dates, they need you to fill out a long kind needing all the information that they already have. You then have to wait about a week to see if your dates are even available. Unless your travel plans will only consist of your stay at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel very bothersome.
Preparation economical flights, or offered Airbnb stays in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts vacation bundle is extremely hard. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to stay at after our remain at the resort was reserved by the time Premier Travel Resorts returned to us.
Our bundle consisted of a stay in Orlando and a stay 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 a service trip we had actually planned was not allowed.
We used the Cancun part of our trip bundle, however we will not be using the rest of it.
THE BAIT AND SWITCH CANCUN ‘ALL INCLUSIVE’ THROUGH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS
The room was filthy, the toilet was cracked, 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 men at the great property told us they called it. For real.
Now, to be fair, Laguna Suites wasn’t all bad. The one restaurant that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you overlook the a/c unit dripping into our food) was really a great experience. They changed up the menu every night, featuring foods from different parts of Mexico. And the personnel was incredible. Extremely friendly and accommodating. And extremely ready to help us with our Spanish.
As soon as over the shock of the distinction in the kind of place we believed we would be staying, we made the most of it. 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 is worth it.
Premier Travel Resorts, however, requires that you attend a promotional presentation throughout each stay. This is different from what we were informed when they offered us the package. When you are staying somewhere for only 2 nights is a huge portion of time, a two-hour sales pitch. They offered us four different stays, that indicates up to 8 hours of reasonably high-pressure sales! No thanks.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
