We are deal hunters. Invest less, take a trip more … right?!Adult Only Riviera Beach Resort From Bookvip Reviw… If you like to make your vacation travel dollar stretch, then like us, you may find yourself thinking about a holiday bundle advertising offer. However you should be prepared. Know that these promotional trip bundle companies are not equivalent.
After the let down of our recent remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I just got off the phone from attempting to schedule the rest of our vacation package with them (some time in Florida). Let’s just state that will not be taking place. We are just going to consume the cost and forget about it.
From here on out, we will be reserving getaway bundles through BookVIP. Here’s why …
Surely, you have actually seen the Facebook sponsored posts. You will see that it is full of the cheapest getaway packages 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 crazy excellent rates.
Our very first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was remarkable. Perhaps the Dreams spoiled us.
One quick note … We have actually only utilized BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Logic informs me that not every resort holiday plan is going to offer a similar experience. It truly is all going to come down to the research you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
They don’t promote the actual name of the resorts. If you really desire to sleuth out the location you will be remaining a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the photos will reveal the real identity of the home you are considering. There was plenty of info on the BookVIP site to assist us feel comfortable with making our booking.
You understand ahead of time if the dates you want to travel are readily available. There is time to compare the dining establishments and features. This is a huge contrast to the marketing getaway bundle sales calls I will talk about in the next section.
When you are all set to make your appointment with BookVIP, just be prepared for a couple of additional resort fees and taxes. In our case, part of the extra charge was to cover suggestions for the resort personnel.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Adult Only Riviera Beach Resort From Bookvip Reviw
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. We really likely would not have participated in another promotional offer if this had actually been our first experience. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our first promotional resort stay, we started getting phone calls offering trip plans to numerous locations. That is how we ended up with a vacation plan including our most recent Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief stays in Florida and elsewhere.
These travel sales calls are always a high-pressure situation unless you just hang up. State no enough times and they will keep dropping the rate to where it in fact sounds like an excellent offer. There isn’t much time to investigate the vacation properties they are offering.
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 (hello, sailboat shopping!). So we shot and purchased a package. Using it, that is a whole different story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it easy to in fact use the vacation time. There is a great deal of fine print that makes travel planning very tough and possibly a lot more pricey. They don’t expose these details throughout the sales call.
THIS IS WHAT YOU OUGHT TO BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only just your dates 45-90 days ahead of time if YOU BUY A GETAWAY BUNDLE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS. Okay, reasonable enough.
Nevertheless, when you call to ask for your preferred dates, they require you to complete a long type needing all the details that they currently have. You then need to wait about a week to see if your dates are even readily available. Unless your itinerary will just consist of your remain at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel really troublesome.
Planning affordable flights, or available Airbnb stays in conjunction with your Premier Travel Resorts trip package is extremely tough. In our case, the Airbnb we wished to remain at after our stay at the resort was scheduled by the time Premier Travel Resorts got back to us.
Our plan consisted of a remain 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, using them on either end of a service trip we had planned was not enabled.
We used the Cancun part of our trip bundle, 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 properties that they desired to sell us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the guys at the nice property informed us they called it.
Now, to be reasonable, Laguna Suites wasn’t all bad. The one restaurant that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you overlook the air conditioning unit dripping into our food) was in fact a good experience. They altered the menu every night, including foods from various parts of Mexico. And the personnel was remarkable. Really friendly and accommodating. And very going to assist us with our Spanish.
Once over the shock of the distinction in the type of location we believed we would be remaining, we made the most of it. We satisfied some nice people. Ate some excellent food. Took some great walks on the golf course. And picked up our rental vehicle a couple days early to go off and check out the location.
THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts require 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, nevertheless, requires that you participate in an advertising presentation throughout each stay. This is different from what we were informed when they offered us the package.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
