Invest less, travel more … right?! If you like to make your holiday travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might find yourself thinking about a getaway bundle marketing offer. Know that these promotional getaway package business are not at all equivalent.
After the pulled down of our recent stay at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I just left the phone from attempting to reserve the rest of our getaway bundle with them (a long time in Florida). Let’s just state that will not be taking place. We are just going to forget and consume the cost about it.
From here on out, we will be reserving holiday plans through BookVIP. If you click over to their site, you will see that it is complete of the most affordable trip plans to some of the most popular destinations.
Our very first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was incredible. Maybe the Dreams ruined us.
One fast note … We have just utilized BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Logic tells me that not every resort holiday plan is going to offer a comparable experience. It actually is all going to come down to the research you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
They don’t advertise the real name of the resorts. If you actually want to sleuth out the place you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the photos will reveal the true identity of the residential or commercial property you are considering. There was plenty of details on the BookVIP website to help us feel comfy with making our appointment.
What we enjoy about scheduling with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. Book when you have done your research study and you are ready. You will understand what you are getting. You know ahead of time if the dates you wish to travel are offered. There is time to compare the restaurants and amenities. This is a huge contrast to the promotional holiday bundle sales calls I will speak about in the next area.
Just be prepared for a few extra resort charges and taxes when you are ready to make your reservation with BookVIP. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive expense around $720 after whatever was said and done. In our case, part of the surcharge was to cover suggestions for the resort staff. After the experience we had, we found this to be well worth it.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Hoax
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 taken part in another advertising offer if this had actually been our first experience. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our first advertising resort stay, we started getting phone calls offering holiday bundles to various destinations. That is how we ended up with a vacation package including our latest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief remain in Florida and somewhere else.
These travel sales calls are constantly a high-pressure circumstance unless you just hang up. State no enough 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 holiday residential or commercial properties they are providing.
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!). So we pulled the trigger and purchased a package. However using it, that is a whole various story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it easy to actually use the getaway time. There is a great deal of small print that makes travel preparation very hard and potentially a lot more costly. They do not reveal these information throughout the sales call.
IF YOU PURCHASE A GETAWAY PLAN WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS, THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO BE PREPARED FOR …
You can just 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 complete a long type needing all the information that they already have. You then need to wait about a week to see if your dates are even readily available. Unless your itinerary will just include your remain at their resort, this makes planning the rest of your travel extremely troublesome.
Planning affordable flights, or available Airbnb remains in conjunction with your Premier Travel Resorts vacation package is extremely challenging. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to stay at after our stay at the resort was scheduled by the time Premier Travel Resorts returned to us.
Our plan included a remain in Orlando and a remain in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts requires that those stays be back to back or 1 month apart. In our case, utilizing them on either end of a company journey we had planned was not permitted.
We used the Cancun portion of our getaway plan, however we will not be utilizing 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 simply the start. You see, they put us up, not in one of the luxury properties that they wanted to offer us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the people at the good residential or commercial property informed us they called it. Genuine.
The one restaurant that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you ignore the air conditioner dripping into our food) was in fact a good experience. They altered up the menu every night, featuring foods from different parts of Mexico. And extremely prepared to help us with our Spanish.
Once over the shock of the difference in the type of location we thought we would be staying, we maximized it. We met some great individuals. Ate some fantastic food. Took some good strolls on the golf course. And got 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 attend a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their affordable costs. No biggie. We seem like that deserves it.
Premier Travel Resorts, however, needs that you attend a promotional presentation during each stay. This is different from what we were told when they offered us the bundle.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY RANT
