Gloabal Discovery Vacations Arlington Heights Illinois Review

G

All I can say is I’m both sorry and elated to find individuals like myself that were scammed for travel services by Global Discovery Vacations. This company is a total consumer ripoff. How dare anyone of this company, at whatever satellite office they have moved into this month, even try to defend the lies this company is selling. All of your stories on-line sound so familiar to what has happened to my husband and I. This company couldn’t be more of a joke. nThey start by calling you on the phone stating you have a free trip (usually 2 nights, 3days) with a choice of 5 or 6 places to go for attending a 90 min presentation for travel services. After you agree to the 90 min presentation you drive to whatever office they have set up for that time period. I have noticed that all of them have short life spans. After you hear what great discounts they have (and I’m the first to admit how embarrassed I am for buying in) they negotiate a lifetime able to be passed on for generations “vacation club.”” The membership fees all started out in the $15K range in my presentation. nHere’s the scam. They have a couple of people working out of a real office somewhere. Then for as long as it takes to sign up all the suckers like me they have several “”temp”” sales offices. These are where they give sales presentations. Once the consumer buys in they have 3 days to break the contract. The travel services department (if you want to call it that) is only open Mon-Fri. The presentations are given on a Friday or Saturday by the time you call on Monday and by the time you get a response you can no longer void the contract. Once your stuck they rely on your frustration to take over. Most people only get two-three weeks of vacation a year with a couple of long weekends. This equates to only being able to go on 4-5 trips or so a year

if your lucky. nYou can’t see where you “”might”” be able to travel

you have to submit more money to this joke of a company for the chance at a vacation resort. GDV needs an attorney with some time to put them out of business once and for all. I was lied to about all inclusive vacations being a part of my membership

which is not so (regardless of the 4 stars I won’t use this year). I can get “”discounted”” trips thru an affiliated travel agent

which it didn’t take me long to figure out that the discounts they give aren’t really discounts at all. It’s just a few people looking up what you can do yourself in about 5 minutes on the web (minus the commision rate for providing this “”exceptional”” service to you
