Spend less, take a trip more … right?! If you like to make your trip travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might discover yourself thinking about a vacation package promotional offer. Know that these advertising holiday package business are not at all equal.
After the let down of our recent stay at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply left the phone from attempting to reserve the remainder of our getaway package 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 scheduling trip packages through BookVIP. If you click over to their website, you will see that it is complete of the least expensive getaway plans to some of the most popular destinations.
Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was amazing. Maybe the Dreams spoiled us.
One fast note … We have just utilized BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Reasoning informs me that not every resort holiday bundle is going to offer a similar experience. It truly is all going to come down to the research study you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
Investigating the residential or commercial properties used on BookVIP can be a bit of a difficulty. They do not promote the real name of the resorts. Instead, they utilize phony names. However if you actually want to sleuth out the place you will be remaining a little investigative deal with Google to compare the images will reveal the true identity of the property you are considering. We didn’t bother going that far. There was a lot of info on the BookVIP site to assist us feel comfy with making our reservation.
What we like about reserving with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. Reserve when you have actually done your research and you are ready. You will understand what you are getting. You know ahead of time if the dates you want to travel are readily available. There is time to compare the facilities and restaurants. This is a big contrast to the promotional getaway bundle sales calls I will discuss in the next area.
When you are ready to make your booking with BookVIP, just be prepared for a few additional resort fees and taxes. 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 pointers for the resort personnel. After the experience we had, we discovered this to be well worth it.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Omni Cancun
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the best. If this had actually been our first experience, we very likely would not have actually participated in another advertising deal. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our very first marketing resort stay, we began getting phone calls offering getaway plans to different destinations. That is how we ended up with a trip bundle including our latest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple short remain in Florida and somewhere else.
These travel sales calls are always a high-pressure circumstance unless you just hang up. State no sufficient times and they will keep dropping the cost to where it in fact sounds like a great offer. There isn’t much time to investigate the vacation homes they are offering.
They drew us in with a stay in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the proximity to Belize) and some time in Florida (hi, sailboat shopping!). So we shot and bought a package. However using it, that is an entire various story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to actually utilize the getaway time. There is a lot of small print that makes travel preparation extremely difficult and possibly a lot more pricey. They don’t expose these details during the sales call.
IF YOU PURCHASE A TRIP BUNDLE 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.
When you call to ask for your favored dates, they need you to fill out a long form needing all the info 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 include your stay at their resort, this makes planning the rest of your travel extremely inconvenient.
Planning cost effective flights, or readily available Airbnb remains in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts getaway plan is very difficult. In our case, the Airbnb we wished to remain at after our remain at the resort was reserved by the time Premier Travel Resorts returned to us.
Our plan included a stay in Orlando and a stay in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts needs that those stays be back to back or 30 days apart. In our case, utilizing them on either end of an organization journey we had actually prepared was not allowed.
We used the Cancun portion of our holiday package, but we won’t be using the rest of it.
THE BAIT AND SWITCH CANCUN ‘ALL INCLUSIVE’ THROUGH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS
The space was unclean, the toilet was broken, the lights flickered, and that is just the start. You see, they put us up, not in among the high-end properties that they wished to sell us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the men at the great residential or commercial property told us they called it. Genuine.
The one restaurant that was consisted of in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you ignore the air conditioner leaking into our food) was in fact a good experience. They altered up the menu every night, featuring foods from different parts of Mexico. And very ready to help us with our Spanish.
Once over the shock of the difference in the type of place we believed we would be remaining, we maximized it. We met some great people. Consumed some excellent food. Took some nice strolls on the golf course. And picked up our rental vehicle a couple days early to go off and explore the area.
THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts need that you go to a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their discounted prices. No biggie. We feel like that deserves it.
Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, needs that you attend an advertising discussion during each stay. When they offered us the plan, this is different from what we were told. When you are staying someplace for only two nights is a big chunk of time, a two-hour sales pitch. They sold us four different stays, that indicates as much as 8 hours of reasonably high-pressure sales! No thanks.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY RANT
