Tripadvisor Bookvip – Review 2022-3

We are deal hunters. Spend less, travel more … right?!Tripadvisor Bookvip… If you like to make your trip travel dollar stretch, then like us, you may find yourself considering a holiday bundle promotional offer. You should be prepared. Know that these marketing vacation bundle business are not equivalent.

After the pulled down of our current stay at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply left the phone from attempting to book the rest of our holiday package with them (some time in Florida). Let’s simply state that will not be taking place. We are simply going to eat the expense and forget about it.

From here on out, we will be scheduling holiday bundles through BookVIP. Here’s why …

Undoubtedly, you have actually seen the Facebook sponsored posts. If you click over to their website, you will see that it is full of the most affordable vacation packages to some of the most popular destinations. They have some seriously glamorous looking stays all over the world at some crazy great prices.

Our very first all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was incredible. Maybe the Dreams ruined us. This location was off-hook. It was everything we had expected and after that some.

One fast note … We have just utilized BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Reasoning tells me that not every resort holiday plan is going to offer a similar experience. It really is all going to come down to the research study you put in.

Investigating the properties provided on BookVIP can be a little bit of a difficulty. They do not advertise the actual name of the resorts. Instead, they utilize fake names. If you really want to sleuth out the place you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the pictures will expose the true identity of the residential or commercial property you are considering. We didn’t bother going that far. There was lots of information on the BookVIP website to help us feel comfy with making our appointment.

What we enjoy about booking with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. When you have done your research study and you are prepared, book. You will understand what you are getting. You know ahead of time if the dates you want to take a trip are offered. There is time to compare the dining establishments and amenities. This is a big contrast to the marketing holiday plan 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 costs and taxes. 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 additional charge 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 Tripadvisor Bookvip
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the best. We very likely would not have actually participated in another marketing offer if this had actually been our very first experience. It was that bad.

Are you on the calling lists? After our very first marketing resort stay, we started getting telephone call offering getaway bundles to different destinations. That is how we wound up with a holiday package including our newest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief remain in Florida and in other places.

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 deal. It is required that you do so before the end of the phone call if they record your interest and you choose to purchase. There isn’t much time to look into the holiday properties they are offering. You might have a couple of seconds to quickly pull up some pictures however that has to do with it. A picture deserves a thousand words, however not worth almost as much as being able to read a couple of evaluations.

They drew us in with a remain in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the distance to Belize) and a long time in Florida (hi, sailboat shopping!). We pulled the trigger and purchased a bundle. Utilizing it, that is a whole different story.

Premier Travel Resorts does not make it easy to really utilize the vacation time. There is a lot of fine print that makes travel planning really hard and possibly a lot more expensive. They do not expose these details throughout the sales call.

IF YOU PURCHASE A VACATION PACKAGE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS, THIS IS WHAT YOU MUST BE PREPARED FOR …
You can just book your dates 45-90 days ahead of time. Okay, fair enough.

However, when you contact us to request your preferred dates, they need you to fill out a long type needing all the info 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 just consist of your stay at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel extremely bothersome.

Preparation budget friendly flights, or readily available Airbnb remains in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts vacation bundle is extremely difficult. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to stay at after our remain at the resort was booked 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 requires that those stays be back to back or one month apart. In our case, utilizing them on either end of an organization trip we had planned was not enabled.

We utilized the Cancun portion of our getaway bundle, however we won’t 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 luxury properties that they desired to sell us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the men at the great home told us they called it.

The one dining establishment that was consisted of in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you overlook the air conditioner dripping into our food) was actually a nice experience. They changed up the menu every night, including foods from various parts of Mexico. And extremely willing to help us with our Spanish.

When over the shock of the difference in the kind of place we believed we would be staying, we made the many of it. And picked up our rental automobile a couple days early to go off and explore 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 reduced prices. No biggie. We feel like that is worth it.

Premier Travel Resorts, however, needs that you participate in a promotional discussion during each stay. This is different from what we were informed when they sold us the bundle. A two-hour sales pitch when you are remaining someplace for just two nights is a substantial piece of time. They sold us four various stays, that means approximately 8 hours of reasonably high-pressure sales! No thanks.

OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY RANT
