We are bargain hunters. Spend less, travel more … right?!Bookvip Cabo San Lucas… If you like to make your getaway travel dollar stretch, then like us, you may find yourself considering a holiday bundle promotional offer. You must be prepared. Know that these advertising getaway package business are not at all equal.
After the pulled down of our recent remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I just left the phone from attempting to schedule the remainder of our getaway bundle with them (a long time in Florida). Let’s just state that will not be happening. We are just going to consume the cost and forget about it.
From here on out, we will be booking trip plans through BookVIP. If you click over to their site, you will see that it is full of the most affordable getaway packages to some of the most popular locations.
Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was amazing. Possibly the Dreams ruined us.
One fast note … We have actually just used BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Logic tells me that not every resort holiday plan is going to offer a comparable experience. It truly 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 actual name of the resorts. If you truly desire to sleuth out the place you will be remaining a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the images will expose the real identity of the home you are considering. There was plenty of information on the BookVIP website to assist us feel comfy with making our reservation.
You know ahead of time if the dates you desire to travel are offered. There is time to compare the features and restaurants. This is a big contrast to the marketing getaway plan sales calls I will talk about in the next area.
When you are ready to make your appointment 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 said and done. In our case, part of the additional charge was to cover ideas for the resort personnel. After the experience we had, we found this to be well worth it.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Cabo San Lucas
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. We extremely likely would not have actually participated in another promotional deal if this had been our first experience. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our very first marketing resort stay, we began getting phone calls using vacation packages to numerous destinations. That is how we ended up with a holiday package including our most recent Cancun all inclusive plus a couple short remain in Florida and somewhere else.
These travel sales calls are constantly a high-pressure circumstance unless you simply hang up. State no sufficient times and they will keep dropping the cost to where it in fact sounds like an excellent offer. There isn’t much time to research the trip homes they are providing.
They drew us in with a remain in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the proximity to Belize) and a long time in Florida (hey there, sailboat shopping!). We pulled the trigger and bought a bundle. But utilizing it, that is an entire different story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to actually use the holiday time. There is a lot of small print that makes travel preparation very challenging and possibly a lot more expensive. They do not expose these details throughout the sales call.
THIS IS WHAT YOU MUST BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only just schedule dates 45-90 days ahead of time if YOU ACQUIRE A VACATION PLAN WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS. Okay, fair enough.
However, when you call to request your preferred dates, they need you to submit a long kind requiring all the info that they already have. You then have to wait about a week to see if your dates are even readily available. Unless your itinerary will only consist of your stay at their resort, this makes planning the rest of your travel really inconvenient.
Planning affordable flights, or available Airbnb stays in conjunction with your Premier Travel Resorts getaway plan is very hard. In our case, the Airbnb we wished to remain at after our stay at the resort was booked by the time Premier Travel Resorts got back to us.
Our bundle consisted of a stay in Orlando and a remain 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 an organization trip we had prepared was not enabled.
We used the Cancun portion of our vacation plan, however we will not be using the rest of it.
THE BAIT AND SWITCH CANCUN ‘ALL INCLUSIVE’ THROUGH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS
The space was dirty, the toilet was broken, the lights flickered, and that is just the start. You see, they put us up, not in among the luxury homes that they wanted to sell us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the guys at the great property informed us they called it. Genuine.
Now, to be reasonable, Laguna Suites wasn’t all bad. The one restaurant that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you ignore the air conditioner dripping into our food) was really a great experience. They altered the menu every night, featuring foods from various parts of Mexico. And the personnel was remarkable. Very friendly and accommodating. And very happy to help us with our Spanish.
As soon as over the shock of the difference in the kind of place we thought we would be remaining, 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 require that you participate in a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their affordable prices. No biggie. We feel like that deserves it.
Premier Travel Resorts, however, needs that you go to an advertising presentation throughout each stay. When they offered us the bundle, this is different from what we were informed. A two-hour sales pitch when you are remaining somewhere for only two nights is a huge piece of time. They sold us four different stays, that indicates approximately eight hours of reasonably high-pressure sales! No thanks.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
