my new VIP membership!!Comments: 1
asked on Mar 31 2016
I must say I am rather impressed thus far with the VIP membership. I had my hesitations at first because I usually find really great deals on Orbitz, but I am so relieved that we got it. We recently planned a Disney vacation road trip. We priced out different options online, but with the VIP I was able to find a great deal on our hotels (nice ones really close to Disney), the car rental (nice van for all of us to fit comfortably) and even a little money on the Disney tickets. I basically paid of the cost of the VIP membership in savings in this one trip alone and still ended up winning. The same trip on Orbitz was costing me $235 more. Looking forward to using it again on our next trip.
Here is my breakdown:
Car Rental - 5 days minivan
VIP: $271.12 with Tax
Orbitz: $308.67 with Tax
Hotels – Westgate Lakes Resort (near Disney) – 3 nights
VIP: $259.86 with Tax
Orbitz: $487.75 with Tax
Walt Disney World 4 day pass tickets – FL resident 2 adults 2 kids
Disney Website: $808.00/$860.54 with Tax
VIP Website: $792.00/$857.48 with Tax
Total comparison savings with Taxes and Fees for Hotel, Ticket, and Car Rental:
Orbitz & Disney Site: $1656.96 with Taxes and Fees
VIP: $1421.00 with Taxes and Fees
I SAVED: $235.96 vs Orbitz. If you subtract cost of VIP membership $22 then technically I saved: $213.96 – but I can use the VIP for life now according to the terms!
Disclosure: Florida.com gave me a VIP for an unbiased review. Hopefully the review/pics will help you out.
