Scam Rip Off | Bookvip review

Dear Melinette,

You are correct. As advertised on our website, the resort is “Oceanfront.” The rooms are not advertised as being “Ocean View.”

As with any purchase, if it is not indicated that taxes are included, it is understood that taxes will be added to the advertised price.

You can save up to 80% of the retail rate on the promotional packages because the resorts are subsidizing the cost of the vacation in exchange for meeting the eligibility requirements and attending the resort preview.

It is the participating resort provider who provides the limited number of rooms offered under the promotion. Any upgrades can be discussed directly with the resort when you check-in.

Your package is not refundable because you declined the Trip Guard Insurance which is offered for every purchase. This insurance would have allowed you to cancel up to 14 days prior to your scheduled travel dates and receive a full refund with no questions asked.

Since the insurance was declined, the purchase is final and non-refundable. If you decide to cancel your scheduled reservation, you will receive a store credit for the full amount you paid.

Please feel free to call 888.845.0602 if you have any questions or would like more information.

Thank you for choosing BookVIP.

Enjoy your vacation!

Made reservation over the phone. We thought we were getting an Ocean Front room.

We paid $349 plus an additional $80 in tax a fees. When we read the fine print that said receptionist Ocean Front and not Ocean View, which apparently means something different. I can get the same room for $92 a night and not have to pay an extra $30 in online 3rd party booking fees.

When we call them three times they told us too bad they couldnt upgrade our room or get a refund. I paid about $100 more than I should have in addition to having to attend a time share briefing.

Original review posted by user Nov 21, 2019

Worst company ever. They hardly speak english.

from 599.00 it went to 1800.00??? Everytime I spoke to them there was another charge. Their website has wrong info on it. Then after I paid with my credit card, a month later she had no record of it.

They dont know what they are talking about.

Liars and fraudulent . Beware.

Resolved: Why do you discriminate against single women? | Bookvip review

Hello Kathleen,

We are pleased that once we became aware of your issue, you were contacted by our
General Manager and we were able to book you in a resort that you chose and are
happy with.

You can save up to 83% of the retail rate on the promotional packages because the
resorts are subsidizing the cost of the vacation in exchange for meeting the eligibility
requirements and attending the resort preview.

It is the participating resort provider who sets forth the eligibility requirements - not
BookVIP.
 
BookVIP is a booking company and it is our job to ensure that guests are qualified for
the limited number of promotional packages being offered by the resort
providers.  The eligibility requirements for each promotional package can be viewed
on BookVIP’s website at the bottom of each resort offering page by clicking on the
Terms and Conditions.

Thank you for choosing BookVIP.

Enjoy your vacation!

Best regards,

11/14BookVIP.com reached out to me and fully resolved my complaint with great customer service. The rules around who "may" be eligible to receive a discount offer based on age or marital status is NOT defined by BookVIP.com but the hosting resorts. They were great at helping me re-book to a great location that doesn't have similar restrictions on Marital Status.

Original review posted by user Nov 13, 2019

So I posted, but it didn't appear so guess you are filtering this.

I purchased a package with upgrades, but when I tried to book I was told I was ineligible unless I was bringing a family member or live in partner.

I was bringing a boyfriend.

I was unable to book the vacation I paid for, and only offered credit.

Misleading sales practices | Bookvip review

Dear Erin,

We appreciate the opportunity to address your concerns.

The original package that you purchased does not require attendance at a sales presentation. However, the all-inclusive upgrade options you chose do require all guests to attend a presentation (as stated in the Reservation Details you agreed to in writing when you booked your dates).

All charges were fully refundable, until you booked your dates and completed the booking process.

Our promotional packages are amazingly affordable because the participating resort provider is paying the 83% discount, in exchange for all guests attendance at the 90-120 minute resort presentation. The preview is designed to be fun and informative.

To ensure that these rooms are available to the customers for whom they were intended, the participating resort provider – not BookVIP - sets forth certain eligibility requirements.

All requirements can be viewed on our website under the Terms and Conditions tab located on every resort offering page.

The Terms and Conditions are reviewed with the customer during the sales call and the customer must agree to them in writing by electronic signature, before any reservation is final and the travel dates sent to the resort.

The Reservation Details are clear and concise and include any additional taxes and/or resort fees which may be asked by a particular resort – including the $29 per night fee you reference.

Happily, we were able to contact you and you have agreed to cancel your dates in exchange for a store credit while you review other offers that were presented to you.

Misleading sales practices - Bookvip review

I purchased a package that said "No Timeshare Presentation Required!". I upgraded when prompted in the sales process and was not informed before my credit card was charged that my whole party would actually have to attend a sales presentation.

When I called to make the reservation the slars agent informed me that I would have to qualify for and attend a sales presentation and pay an additional $29 a night.

This was disappointing since that is not what I purchased and my credit card had already been charged but I did qualify on my own and she said that my guest did not need to qualify.

When the resort called to confirm the reservation they gave me different information and said that everyone in the party regardless of qualification had to attend the presentation; for a package that was advertised as "no timeshare presentation required".

Please honor what you advertised and sold! I am willing to meet you halfway and have 1 qualfied adult attend the full presentation.

DO NOT purchase from here....Nashville is a NO | Bookvip review

Hello Patricia,

All of our special promotional packages are based on availability. The demand for your preferred destination was overwhelming and exceeded the allotment which was set aside for this special promotion.

Since you were not interested in changing destinations, your package was cancelled and a refund was immediately processed (prior to the posting of your review).

I booked yesterday and guaranteed one of 3 hotels over the next year. I was available every month for 12 months.

Within minutes both myself as well as a representative tried EVERY 3 night sequence of every month and ZERO of the 3 hotels were available. She told me she would request a refund and apologized. Today a different rep called me and went through the same DAMN sequence. I am at work and have ZERO time for this.

Just refund my money and I will walk away.

This is CRAZY! I have used this before with a time share and not had a problem booking but this deal is wrong!

We’re enjoying our stay here at the Westgate Las Vegas. We used Bookvip.com to book our trip. It was such an easy process. During our stay we have enjoyed fine dining, the hospitality of the great staff and even hung out on the strip with friends. We will definitely be using Bookvip again.
