Bookvip - Terrible

Dear Holly,

We appreciate the opportunity to address your concerns.

Unfortunately, you did not meet the resorts requirements for the promotional rate however, we immediately processed a full refund when we discovered that you would not be able to continue with your visit to the resort.

You can save up to 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.

The reason we have over 3.6 Million Facebook Likes, more customer video reviews, and have sent over 100,000 people on vacation this year alone, is because we are the worldwide leader in promotional packages - that's our specialty. If you meet the resort's requirements and agree to attend the resort preview, you will receive the promotional rate.

I bought the New Orleans package. I didn't know my dates so I chose book later this came as a five payment option .

By the time I called to book they had already processed three payments. They informed me I was not eligible because I was not married. I was highly offended I am a widow and I earn $150,000 a year I am more than qualified to purchase anything they would offer.

I also have not received a refund. I would definitely not recommend them to anyone

Order processing issue

This company sold my daughter a trip to Bali. They had her date if birth, and were aware she is 18. After booking the trip (including the airfare), they called to tell her she

is ineligible because she is under 21. They refuse to do anything about the $$$ she is out for the tickets.

They have no native English speakers available.

See you in court.

Bookvip - Rip-off: bait and switch

Dear Marvin,

Thank you for your feedback.

Rest assured, BookVIP does not participate in “bait-and-switch” tactics. Above all else, providing excellent customer service is our main goal.

Since this is a discounted promotion, we cannot use the real name of the hotel. When you booked your dates, you were provided with the real name of the resort, which is located in San Jose Los Cabos.

Although you were provided with an option to upgrade to an All-Inclusive resort in Cabo San Lucas, you decided to keep the reservation you originally booked, which is confirmed.

Thank you for choosing BookVIP.

Enjoy your vacation!

Preferred solution
Let the company propose a solution

Paid for a resort ressrot named Cabo Palace Beach Resort with location listed in Cabo San Lucas. Then VIP Booking phone rep did a bait and switch on me while on the phone to a resort in San Jose Del Cabo.

VIP booking made me sign off over phone and would not let me see resort until after taking my money. VIP never sent link and I found out about the location by calling custoemr service back and asking why the resort name had changed? they were rude and said that was the resort I booked. no refunds.

They refused to refund me and had to call credit card to report scam. VIP Booking is a high pressure scam.

Bookvip - Great, great trip

We had a beautiful time. Wonderful food and great staff. We saved a ton of money going through Bookvip.com. Great pool, swim up bar. Talking to other people, we saved about $400.00 over them for this all inclusive resort. Thanks, Bookvip for a fabulous vacation.

Bookvip - Adding on later

I spoke to Karl although the sale that I took a vantage of it supposed to be for one day he is agreed to do and giving me his extension number to ensure that I am able to add my extras for the same price as the packages off at four on today which is amazing because everything is for sale I will be writing another review after I leave to make sure that this thing is not to good to be true but it is looking awesome right now

Return, Exchange or Cancellation Policy

After investing over1900. no services were rendered.

They are not part of BBB. My bank was not able to get my money back.

After several very hostile conversations they refuse to return my money. The prices offered are the same as ones that you can find yourself.

Bookvip - Amazing time at the Poconos Mountain

We took a family vacation to the poconos mountain in Pennsylvania and we had an amazing time in the resort, the staff was great and made us feel right at home!! We enjoyed the indoor pool and the hit tub.

i have no complaints

Hi, I'm writing to you not because I have a complaint, but because thanks to this site and all the reviews I will never have a complaint, I was strongly thinking of booking a trip their your site but after reading all the issues and complaints people have made I won't make the same mistake. My biggest question is why does Robin still work for you???

She sounds like a complete waste of your money, her job is to make things right and to give the utmost customer service and from the things I have read, she has never made anyone's day.

You are always apologizing for your reps , fire them and hire friendly, knowledgeable people to represent your company. You are being viewed as scam artist by most of these reviews a lot of very unhappy clients. i'm sure you do a good amount of business and make a lot of money but I bet you'd sleep a lot better if you did the same thing in an honest friendly manner. Your employees reflect you and your company, sounds like you need to clean out your closets and get rid of the rude people you employ.

I'm also a business owner and I pride myself on customer service, I personally have nothing bad to say about your company or it's practices and sadly I never will even though I would qualify for most of your vacay deals, I can't bring myself to take a chance on a company with this many bad reviews.

I feel for the people who were treated poorly by your staff and to those who tried to go around the rules well they reap what they sow and I don't feel bad for them trying to scam you or the resorts, there will always be someone who tries don't mean they should be treated poorly.

If you take away nothing from my comments please get rid of Robin her name was mentioned numerous times and not one person had anything good to say about her. She sounds like a real gem(insert sarcasm) good day Happy

Talk about a respectable bit of advice - you said that with real sincerity and all the while never was out of line or mean in any way ( people like you are hard to come by these days so not only did you bring it to my attention and save me from a risky purchase and headache you were professional in getting your point across so thank you so much for that - I wish I had a boss like you .

Bookvip, you helped us save over $2,000.00!

We had the vacation of our dreams. It was in our budget and was everything you said it would be and more.

Bookvip - This is the most memorable trip we’ve ever had!

We’re on our last day at the beautiful Grand Sirenis. The kids have been swimming all day. We had such a great concierge that we bought a membership. We will be back many times.
