We are deal hunters. Invest less, take a trip more … right?!Bookvip Westgate Las Vegas Reviews… If you like to make your vacation travel dollar stretch, then like us, you may find yourself considering a getaway package advertising deal. However you should be prepared. Know that these promotional holiday plan business are not at all equivalent.
After the let down of our recent remain at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I just got off the phone from attempting to reserve the rest of our holiday package with them (a long time in Florida). Let’s just say that will not be occurring. We are just going to eat the expense and forget about it.
From here on out, we will be scheduling vacation bundles through BookVIP. If you click over to their website, you will see that it is full of the most inexpensive trip packages to some of the most popular locations.
Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was fantastic. Perhaps the Dreams spoiled us. This location was off-hook. It was everything we had hoped for and then some.
One fast note … We have just utilized BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Reasoning informs me that not every resort getaway package is going to offer a comparable experience. It actually is all going to boil down to the research study you put in.
Is booking Very Important Person a timeshare?
They do not market the real name of the resorts. If you really want to sleuth out the place you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the photos will expose the true identity of the home you are considering. There was plenty of information on the BookVIP website to help us feel comfy with making our appointment.
What we like about scheduling with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. Book when you have actually done your research study and you are ready. You will know what you are getting. You know ahead of time if the dates you wish to take a trip are available. There is time to compare the features and dining establishments. This is a huge contrast to the advertising getaway bundle sales calls I will speak about in the next section.
Simply be prepared for a couple of extra resort fees and taxes when you are ready to make your reservation with BookVIP. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive cost around $720 after everything was stated and done. In our case, part of the service charge was to cover ideas for the resort staff. After the experience we had, we found this to be well worth it.
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Westgate Las Vegas Reviews
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the best. We extremely likely would not have actually gotten involved in another marketing deal if this had actually been our very first experience. It was that bad.
Are you on the calling lists? After our very first promotional resort stay, we began getting call using trip plans to numerous destinations. That is how we ended up with a trip plan including our newest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief remain in Florida and somewhere else.
These travel sales calls are always a high-pressure circumstance unless you simply hang up. Say no enough times and they will keep dropping the price to where it really sounds like a bargain. If they record your interest and you decide to purchase, it is required that you do so prior to completion of the telephone call. There isn’t much time to investigate the holiday homes they are providing. You might have a couple of seconds to rapidly bring up some photos but that is about it. An image is worth a thousand words, however not worth almost as much as being able to check out a few reviews.
They drew us in with a stay in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the distance to Belize) and some time in Florida (hi, sailboat shopping!). So we shot and purchased a bundle. Using it, that is a whole various story.
Premier Travel Resorts does not make it easy to actually use the holiday time. There is a lot of fine print that makes travel preparation extremely hard and potentially a lot more expensive. They don’t expose these information throughout the sales call.
THIS IS WHAT YOU OUGHT TO BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only reserve book dates 45-90 days ahead of time if YOU BUY A GETAWAY BUNDLE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS. Okay, reasonable enough.
When you call to ask for your preferred dates, they require you to fill out a long form requiring 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 travel plans will only consist of your stay at their resort, this makes planning the rest of your travel really troublesome.
Preparation affordable flights, or offered Airbnb stays in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts holiday package is extremely hard. In our case, the Airbnb we wished to remain at after our stay at the resort was reserved by the time Premier Travel Resorts got back to us.
Our bundle consisted of a stay in Orlando and a stay in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts needs that those stays be back to back or 1 month apart. In our case, utilizing them on either end of a service trip we had actually prepared was not permitted.
We utilized the Cancun part of our vacation package, but 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 guys at the great home told us they called it.
Now, to be reasonable, Laguna Suites wasn’t all bad. The one restaurant that was consisted of in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you ignore the air conditioning system leaking into our food) was in fact a great experience. They altered the menu every night, including foods from different parts of Mexico. And the staff was remarkable. Very friendly and accommodating. And really ready to assist us with our Spanish.
Twice the shock of the difference in the sort of place we thought we would be staying, we took advantage of it. We fulfilled some great individuals. Ate some great food. Took some nice strolls on the golf course. And got our rental vehicle 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 rates. No biggie. We seem like that deserves it.
Premier Travel Resorts, nevertheless, needs that you attend an advertising presentation throughout each stay. This is various from what we were told when they offered us the package.
OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY RANT
