Spend less, travel more … right?! If you like to make your holiday travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might find yourself considering a getaway bundle marketing deal. Know that these advertising vacation bundle companies are not at all equivalent.
After the pulled down of our current stay at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply left the phone from trying to book the remainder of our trip plan with them (some time in Florida). Let’s simply say that will not be occurring. We are just going to forget and consume the cost about it.
From here on out, we will be booking holiday packages through BookVIP. Here’s why …
Surely, you have actually seen the Facebook sponsored posts. You will see that it is complete of the cheapest vacation bundles to some of the most popular locations if you click over to their site. They have some seriously luxurious looking stays all over the world at some insane great costs.
Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was amazing. Perhaps the Dreams spoiled us.
One fast note … We have actually just used BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Logic informs me that not every resort trip plan is going to provide a similar experience. It really 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 want to sleuth out the place you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the images will expose the true identity of the home you are considering. There was plenty of information on the BookVIP site to help us feel comfortable with making our reservation.
What we like about booking with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. Book when you have actually done your research and you are ready. You will know what you are getting. You know ahead of time if the dates you want to travel are offered. There is time to compare the features and dining establishments. This is a big contrast to the advertising vacation bundle sales calls I will speak about in the next section.
Simply be prepared for a few additional resort costs and taxes when you are all set to make your appointment with BookVIP. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive cost around $720 after everything was said and done. In our case, part of the surcharge 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 Bookvip.Com Affiliate
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the best. We really likely would not have participated in another marketing deal if this had been our very first experience. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our first marketing resort stay, we started getting phone calls using trip plans to different locations. That is how we ended up with a vacation plan including our most recent Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief remain in Florida and somewhere else.
These travel sales calls are constantly a high-pressure scenario unless you simply hang up. Say no enough times and they will keep dropping the rate to where it really seems like a good deal. If they record your interest and you decide to purchase, it is needed that you do so before completion of the telephone call. There isn’t much time to look into the getaway homes they are using. You may have a couple of seconds to quickly pull up some photos but that is about it. A picture is worth a thousand words, but not worth almost as much as having the ability to check out a few reviews.
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 purchased a bundle. However utilizing it, that is an entire various story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it easy to really use the trip time. There is a great deal of small print that makes travel planning very challenging and potentially a lot more costly. They do not reveal these details during the sales call.
IF YOU BUY A TRIP PLAN WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS, THIS IS WHAT YOU OUGHT TO BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only reserve your dates 45-90 days ahead of time. Okay, reasonable enough.
Nevertheless, when you contact us to request for your preferred dates, they need you to submit a long type needing all the details that they currently have. You then have to wait about a week to see if your dates are even offered. Unless your itinerary will only consist of your remain at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel really inconvenient.
Planning budget friendly flights, or offered Airbnb remains in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts holiday package is very hard. In our case, the Airbnb we wished to remain at after our stay at the resort was scheduled by the time Premier Travel Resorts returned to us.
Our plan consisted of a remain in Orlando and a remain 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 allowed.
We utilized the Cancun part of our vacation bundle, however we will not 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 high-end residential or commercial properties that they wanted to offer us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the guys at the great residential or commercial property told us they called it.
The one restaurant that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you overlook the air conditioner leaking into our food) was in fact a nice experience. They altered up the menu every night, featuring foods from different parts of Mexico. And extremely prepared to assist us with our Spanish.
As soon as over the shock of the distinction in the kind of location we thought we would be staying, we made the most of it. And picked up our rental cars and truck a couple days early to go off and check out the area.
THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts need that you attend a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their affordable costs. No biggie. We feel like that deserves it.
Premier Travel Resorts, however, requires that you participate in an advertising presentation throughout each stay. This is various from what we were informed when they offered us the bundle.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
