Invest less, travel more … right?! If you like to make your vacation travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might find yourself considering a trip plan marketing deal. Know that these marketing trip bundle business 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 attempting to reserve the rest of our holiday bundle with them (a long time in Florida). Let’s just say that will not be happening. We are just going to forget and eat the cost about it.
From here on out, we will be scheduling holiday plans through BookVIP. If you click over to their site, you will see that it is complete of the most affordable trip bundles to some of the most popular destinations.
Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was amazing. Perhaps the Dreams spoiled us.
One quick note … We have actually just utilized BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Reasoning informs me that not every resort trip plan is going to provide a comparable experience. It actually is all going to boil down to the research you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
Looking into the properties used on BookVIP can be a little bit of a difficulty. They don’t advertise the actual name of the resorts. Instead, they use fake names. But if you truly wish to sleuth out the place you will be remaining a bit of investigative work on 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 plenty of details 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. Book when you have done your research and you are ready. You will know what you are getting. You understand ahead of time if the dates you want to take a trip are available. There is time to compare the facilities and dining establishments. This is a big contrast to the marketing getaway bundle sales calls I will discuss in the next area.
Just be prepared for a few additional resort fees and taxes when you are all set to make your reservation with BookVIP. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive cost around $720 after whatever was stated and done. In our case, part of the additional charge 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 Tripadvisor
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. We really likely would not have gotten involved in another advertising offer if this had been our very first experience. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our first promotional resort stay, we started getting call using vacation bundles to different locations. That is how we wound up with a getaway bundle including our newest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief remain in Florida and elsewhere.
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 rate to where it really sounds like a great offer. There isn’t much time to look into the vacation homes they are providing.
They drew us in with a remain in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the distance to Belize) and some time in Florida (hey there, sailboat shopping!). We pulled the trigger and purchased a package. But utilizing it, that is an entire different story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to really utilize the vacation time. There is a lot of small print that makes travel planning really challenging and possibly a lot more expensive. They don’t reveal these information during the sales call.
IF YOU PURCHASE A GETAWAY BUNDLE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS, THIS IS WHAT YOU MUST BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only schedule your dates 45-90 days ahead of time. Okay, reasonable enough.
However, when you contact us to ask for your preferred dates, they need you to submit a long kind requiring all the details that they already have. You then need to wait about a week to see if your dates are even available. Unless your travel plans will just consist of your stay at their resort, this makes planning the rest of your travel really bothersome.
Preparation inexpensive flights, or available Airbnb stays in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts holiday plan is really challenging. 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 plan included 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, utilizing them on either end of a company journey we had actually prepared was not permitted.
We utilized the Cancun portion of our holiday plan, 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 homes that they desired to sell us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the people at the good home told us they called it.
The one restaurant that was consisted of in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you ignore the air conditioner leaking into our food) was really a good experience. They altered up the menu every night, featuring foods from various parts of Mexico. And extremely ready to assist us with our Spanish.
Once over the shock of the difference in the type of location we believed we would be staying, we took advantage of it. We met some good individuals. Consumed some terrific food. Took some nice 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 require that you attend a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their affordable prices. No biggie. We feel like that is worth it.
Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, requires that you attend a promotional presentation during each stay. This is different from what we were informed when they sold us the plan. A two-hour sales pitch when you are remaining someplace for just two nights is a big portion of time. They offered us 4 various stays, that implies approximately eight hours of moderately high-pressure sales! No thanks.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
