We so so excited to be able to offer you this complimentary vacation package. Many people have questions about the offer and we hope to be able to answer those questions here for you. The number one question always asked is “what is the catch?” and we assure you that there really is not one (unless you go fishing during your vacation I guess).

Frequently Asked Questions

How can you offer these incentives?2019-08-27T11:07:51-04:00

BookVIP has traveled over 1 million families to date and has contracts with the world leading hotel chains, and resorts to help them fill their otherwise empty rooms. Hotels rarely experience full occupancy, yet they remain open, providing rooms and services at fixed costs. So when hotels give out their rooms they might miss out on the room fee, but they already didn’t have that in the first place, at least now they have the opportunity to gain a customer for their in-house restaurants, room service, their casinos, an extra day stay, future bookings, etc. The benefit of why our program works so well is the fact that it’s a win-win for everyone involved.
