We all want to travel, many of us may not admit it to others but I find that’s more because they don’t want to admit it to themselves. They feel they can travel for whatever reason, so they really tell themselves they don’t want to so they really don’t feel they are missing out. I’m letting everyone know they can. Whether it’s finances holding them back, or not so sure how to go about setting up a great vacation, or just anxiety about going on their what to look first trip outside of their safe place. And I will explain it through talking about lifestyle vacation clubs. We will be talking about this from the experience I have in travel that we have inked and the lifestyle vacation club I have knowledge about.
First pro of a lifestyle vacation club.
The first, and probably biggest, pro for a lot of people is the value. A lot of people would like to get as much value as they can out of the money they spend. It makes sense, we work hard for our money so we want to get as much from it even as can. The approach to life vacation club that we have knowledge of does just that. They offer a lot of bargain. All the holiday packages available are situated at 4 and 5 star resorts or hotels at 2 and 3 star prices. They guarantee the lowest price or they will refund you the cost of the trip and send you on the vacation anyway. Pretty powerful statement. There is always inclusions in the trip which adds so much value to the money you are spending as well. If your trip is to Disneyland, they include tickets to the park. A skiing trip, they add the lift pass during your stay. A day at a car race, great seats that is included in compare passes. A lifestyle vacation club has value.
Pro #2 of a lifestyle vacation club.
Worry free. Let’s face it, our lives are busy. Setting up a great vacation is time consuming. You have to find a resort in your neighborhood you’re wanting to go. You need to confirm vacancy during the time you want to go. Then you need to set up activities in your neighborhood you want to go. You can avoid this buy doing it while your on your vacation, but who wants to do that? I’ve done it and it was added stress… while on holiday trying to get away from stress!! Then you have to pay for it, ahead of time or while on holiday like Used to do on one of my trips. Either method is a hassle and time consuming. With a lifestyle vacation club the effort is removed. You can set filtration systems for the type of trip your looking for making it extremely easy to find the trip you want with the inclusions you’re wanting to experience, book the trip and you’re done.
Another pro of a lifestyle vacation club.
As being part of a membership, the same trip is going to be available to other people. This allows you to have a common ground with the people on the excursions with you, the membership. Whether it be whale watching off the shoreline of Mexico, or a wine mouth watering tour in England, some or many of the people on those excursions with you have a common ground with you to break the ice and make the initial interaction less awkward, you all are members of the same lifestyle vacation club. Knowing that there’s going to be other people on the trip that you share a membership with could make it safer to take that first trip to get over your anxiety about travelling.
Pro four of a lifestyle vacation club
As I’ve stated, there’s a certain lifestyle vacation club that we have knowledge of. There’s certain perks that this lifestyle vacation club has which make it truly amazing. One of these perks is an online shopping mall. There are over a thousand shops in this online shopping mall to choose from. When you go shopping online for things your going to buy anyway, you get a portion back in the form of “travel dollars”. These can be applied to the trip you chose, routes for the trip, or just your own private hotels, etc. Essentially, if you shop online enough, and accumulate enough “travel dollars”, you could go on the road for free. Absolutely amazing.
Next are some supposed cons. Lots of things though are from points of view, and I will offer different points of view to look at these cons in a positive light.
Con #1 of a lifestyle vacation club
I hear it all the time, “but I don’t like groups of people so i wouldn’t want to go on a trip where there’s a bunch of other people doing the same thing”. First, you don’t have to take part in the group activities, but it could end up being a pretty boring trip. So view it in a different light. Trust me, whether you’re on the road on your own or part of a lifestyle vacation club, there’s going to be other people around. You’ll have to pay a pretty hefty fee to achieve the scuba instructor take just you and your companion out for the dive, pretty pricey booking the whale watching boat for only your family exclusively. If you do not pay huge money there’s going to be other people doing the same things as you. So just why not change your point of view and view it as a pro like stated in pro #3. You have a commonality with the people on the excursions with you.
Second con of a lifestyle vacation club.
They don’t include routes in the cost of the trip. OK so you got me there. It would be impossible for them to do this. There would be people flying from just a few hours away and the wonderful flying from across an sea. There would be absolutely no way to make one price for these when people are coming from all over. But let me ask you this. A family in British Columbia The us is booking a secondary to Cancun Mexico through some booking agent that “includes” the flight. Now, the same size family happens to be booking this also trip, at this also time, through the same booking agent, but this family is in nys of Tx in the united states. Do you think that the price of the vacation is going to be the same for each family? The answer is no. The household in Tx is way closer to Cancun than the family in The us. Though they say the flight is included, it is certainly just enclosed in with the cost of the stay. As for the con… I’ve looked up the cost of routes to a trip in the lifestyle vacation club and totalled it up. When i looked up vacations to the same place at the same time that included routes. When i had to find the cost it would be to get the same things that the approach to life vacation club includes in the cost, and add it to the cost of the “flight included” vacation package. What happens, the approach to life vacation club end price was hundreds of dollars cheaper every time. That takes us back to pro 1, hammer for our profit. I’d rather book another flight and save hundreds of dollars then book a secondary that includes a flight. In addition, there’s many of us that have methods of collecting points to apply towards routes when we choose to travel. When booking a secondary where the flight is enclosed with the vacation package, you can’t use your points to make the flight portion cheaper. When the flight is separate from the vacation package, you’re free to pay for the flight how you wish, so you can do this using your points, seat sales, etc. In my opinion this turns trips where the flight is “included”, into a con. And the fact that the flight is not “included” in the lifestyle vacation club, into a pro.
Con 3 of a lifestyle vacation club.
The vacations of the lifestyle vacation club are pre-set with the dates. Another thing I hear all the time. “It’s my vacation and I want to go on my time, not a time chosen for me by the livestyle vacation club. inch OK, yes, the vacations in a lifestyle vacation club have pre-set dates. They can offer great prices because they buy vacations like Costco buys household goods. They book plenty of rooms from a resort at a specific time getting them huge discounts on the cost and they pass those savings about the club member. I’ve seen snowboarding trips for example, just a couple months apart, to the same place. Trips to General Studios in Florida at various times all through the year. They offer as much options as they can for flexibility. So i provide a different way to look at it to lessen the negativity of computer. Wouldn’t you most probably to the idea of modifying your vacation date’s a little, if it means saving hundreds of dollars on your trip? I know I would.
Fourth con of a lifestyle vacation club.
The approach to life vacation club that we have knowledge of has a membership fee. There is a preliminary set up fee and a monthly fee after that. It’s a con in a way I guess but this business does something to make it an expert. Costco has a yearly fee. You pay that fee to have access to the great deals in their store. The deals are worth it so you pay the fee. Same idea with the membership fee of a lifestyle vacation club. You pay a fee to access the great deals on vacations. But what this business does to turn it into a pro is quite unique. Every dollar you may spend, that includes the initial set up fee as well as the monthly fees, gets turned in to “DreamTrip” points, dollar for dollar, one dollar means one point. The vacations have a point value that can be subtracted from the dollar value you have to pay to book the already deeply discounted trip. So really the membership fee acts like a vacation savings account. So again, looking at it a different way turns this negative into a positive as well.
