SCAM!
Posted by DVJen on 05/17/2007
CALIFORNIA -- We went to a Travel To Go presentation last night for no other reason than the "Complimentary Vacation for Two" that was offered. We sat thru the whole thing - only to realize at the end this is nothing more than a Timeshare liquidator of unsold timeshare properties. Such a bait and switch. They lure you in with ideas of vacations to all these 5 star resorts - and when it gets down to it all you get is a week at a timeshare property that the property developers/owners couldn't sell. But that is not why I am upset. We got our voucher for a comp. vacation - We chose the Royal Caribbean Cruise to Mexico. In the fine print on the back it says to mail in the voucher, yada, yada - and we will be required to pay... $299.00 per person!!!!!!!! WHAT? OK - I get that we will have to pay for port charges and taxes. that's fine. I went on-line to the Royal Caribbean website to price a cruise directly from them in that category stateroom (Q). I found I can get a cruise for 2 @ $216.00/person and port charges and taxes for 2 people would be $51.58!!! A total of less than $500 or I could go on my complimentary vacation for $600. I called Travel to Go this morning and asked them what part of this vacation was complimentary. You know what they said... "Complimentary doesn't mean Free"!!!!!! I said if that is how they are handling this then I would seriously question their business practices in other areas of travel. They said they would call back... we will see about that!
Anyone looking for info about Travel To Go - RUN! It's a total scam. I feel so bad for all those elderly people in that meeting losing their retirement fund to this outfit.

I congratulate you on doing your research before purchasing anything. I wish other consumers would do the same.

My husband & I went to a presentation in San Diego last month and a man named Jason gave the pitch for all of these HUGELY discounted vacations including r.t. airfare for literally NOTHING. He stood up there and gave example after example after example of exotic and outrageous destinations in 5-Star resorts and wowed us all with "his" VERY "special" price. This was through Travel To Go by the way. When we joined we thought it was odd HE couldn't log onto their website and SHOW us these places, and that we only had 3 days to cancel. Turns out, they're a TIMESHARE LIQUIDATOR and they would LOVE to buy YOURS, and add it to their inventory! EVERY place was an RCI place, and when we logged on, we saw literally NOTHING to select - month after month there would be one or 2 max. dumpy places. The promised 50% off cruises were a page of 5 that were 8-10% off. He even lied and said Disney cruises were included. Well, Disney doesn't discount their cruises, EVER. A travel agent can get better prices. Don't be fooled by them, we own a timeshare and it's far less to use it or even book through an online place then get sucked into this scam. It is nothing but a scam. I'm going to check into the supposed "A" rating with the BBB. IF that's true, it's only b/c people aren't bothering to report them after getting out. Ask THEM why they don't use this "wonderful" resource, our guy said it's b/c he has 6 kids. WHY wouldn't you? At $2K for a week for a family of 4 surely he could add the other members and pay $4K for the trips to Australia he told us about? Nope! We felt SO STUPID when we found out. LOOK INTO IT> And don't believe the "Our boss is giving a discount to the first 2 who buy>' We were the last to leave the room, and in the parking lot 4 others were telling us how THEY got a discount for having AAA, being a Marine, being a teacher, etc. One couple paid $5K one paid $4800, we paid $4500 and another paid $6K. The only thing in common was we all got taken and we all left pissed and cancelled the next morning. They outright lie to you. It IS a timeshare rental and you don't get to us the good ones. It's a crappy timeshare rental. RUN OUT OF THERE!!!!!

Travel To Go Scam
Posted by Ostanback on 05/07/2009
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA -- In September last year I bought a membership in "travel-to-go" a travel firm supposedly providing accommodation and luxury vacation packages around the world. I was promised the sky, and at the time I thought this is just too good to be true - 50% or more reduction on accommodation was what we were told when we paid our $5600. Low and behold it turns out to be if not a scam the next best thing to it. Every time we call there is a blackout date (Easter, Christmas, School holidays etc) and nothing available, or prices that are double the internet prices or accommodation that is second rate or motel value for extreme prices. Then we try to book in various places and there is no accommodation anywhere near the place we intend on staying ( we tried to Book Quessnsland, Australia and they gave us Sydney 1200 miles away. We tried to book the Caribbean and they wanted to put us up in Jacksonville, Florida. Then when I try to get a refund they tell me there is fine print that says NO REFUND is available for any reason, for any cause, even if the contract is fraudulent. This company should be closed down and put out of business for corporate fraud as there is nothing that they have provided for my thousands of dollars spent.

The stories of many others scammed by this company prove that this company is not honest and only out to fleece the public. I hope others are not scammed by this company as I have been.

When to their web page to read the terms & conditions. The frame containing terms is empty. Tried with a couple of other browser and got the same blank area. But I did notice a statement that they warrant nothing.
Posted by Soaring Consumer on 2009-05-07:
The clauses on that contract would not hold up in civil court, if you were to attempt to sue them. Especially since there is no copy of the contract available to you except a blank page.

Here is where they are located:
7964-B Arjons Drive
San Diego, CA 92126

This is a scam. You can book your own motel, cruises, and vacations yourself and save money. The hours are terrible. The price is different for everyone who buys. Save your money and go on vacation.....

Don't use the company, they use false representation.

BRANSON, MISSOURI -- I was on vacation in Branson Missouri August 2010. We attended a travel to go presentation. Initially, the gentleman who had made the appt. said that it would only be an hour, it is actually a 90 minutes presentation. My husband and I attended the presentation and it sounded like a good offer. The package that we bought was 3500 dollars. The salesperson who represented the presentation told us that we would have to put down 799.00. And our payments every month would be 91.00 a month for installments until our loan was paid in full. I done some research when we got back to our hotel room, and seen several complaints. Needless to say I was nervous about the deal and called my bank and put a stop payment on the check that I had given them. we had 3 days to cancel in which I went to their office and did and I also gave them their leather binder that included everything they said I would need for reservations etc. when I got home, I went to the bank and they will still trying to process my check thru after I had cancelled. So, please don't sign anything or give them any credit card or check. you will not get your money back if you wait to cancel within the 3 day period. From my experience I will never even think about going to a presentation again I don't care if they offer me trips to the white house. BEWARE CONSUMERS!!!

This is the perfect example of doing your research before you sign anything. I hope you gave them your cancellation in writing, so as to avoid any issues later on.

Thanks for the review.

Before Purchasing with travel to go, research the company
Posted by Zano on 09/02/2010
BRANSON, MISSOURI -- We were on vacation In Branson Missouri on August 30. 2010. We were approached by a gentleman who represented Travel to go/Grand vacation. He said if we attended his presentation for an hour, that we could get back 75.00 just for attending. So, my husband and I attended the presentation and we were really interested in what they had to offer. It all sounded good, and the package deal was 3,500 dollars. But when I called to reserve a room with a hotel, they couldn't offer me much of a discount at all. I told them that I already had the room at that rate. With that information, I should have known that was a red flag, and then I seen the bad reviews on the internet.

So needless to say, we had 3 days to cancel and I cancelled our membership with Travel to Go. I just hope people think about what they are committing to before signing anything. Please use precaution.

These are suckers' deals just like time-shares. If it sounds too good to be true............(you know the rest of the saying.) I worked for a time-share/travel club and cannot believe how many people fall for their sales' pitches.
Posted by zano on 2010-09-10:
They didn't sound like a timeshare initially, so that's why we thought that the offer sounded so good. If I had known that it was an actual time share liguidator, then I wouldn't have even attended the presentation to begin with. I won't attend another one. It is all a bunch of crap.

I Walked Away!
Posted by Rodtnick on 01/31/2014
BFANSON, MISSOURI -- I just finished with a presentation of Travel-To-Go and I wanted to share my experience while it's still fresh on my mind. The presenter was fine and slick. When he gave us the price early on of $9,995 to be "upfront with us" I thought to myself, well, I might be interested in it if it was around $2,500. It looked good...better than my timeshare contract that cost me $14,000...that I would sell in a minute if I could get anywhere close to my money back.

Then the personal salesman sat down with us and when I told him I wasn't willing to spend $10,000 on anything like this he very quickly took $6,000 off the price. As this was going on I was looking online and seeing not-so-favorable reviews, so I wasn't interested in $6,000 off. Well, of course the price kept coming down and then he said he would "talk to his boss" and see what he could do for us. And we all know that he went to the back and had a cup of coffee and when he came back he was down to my $2,500 goal, the employee discount that he was only able to offer four times a year...yeah sure...but he also offered us the PREMIUM package worth $17,000 for.....$3,000. Well, by this time I was pissed off and walked.

Let me tell you, Travel-To-Go, if you want my business be honest with me upfront. Don't discount it 75% if you can offer it at that price anyway. It makes me think that you are trying to milk me for as much as you can upfront. I guess you saw that I was already pissed off at the "deal" I got for my timeshare (17 years ago) and you knew I would be a hard sell. Well, it still didn't work. So I have no firsthand experience WITH the product, but I sure don't like the sales pitch.

It seems like any of these 'seminars' for time share, travel clubs, etc are not worth it. Time shares: do your research first - see what used time shares are selling for in the complex that is being touted. Travel clubs: see what kind of air fares and hotel costs are for the destinations you want to go to before going to the seminar.
Posted by shayen on 2014-02-01:
Timeshare salespeople always come across as slick because they have to be. Sales in that industry is cut-throat as it is hard to get anyone to buy. I am not sure why you are upset that you weren't offered the cheapest price off the bat. Have you ever bought a car and had to haggle? It is part of the nature of the business. It sounds like you passed on a really good deal! Timeshares get a bad rap, but I had one for years and enjoyed it immensely, no regrets.

Customer Service is Terrible
Posted by Lbreck1 on 09/11/2013
SANDIEGO, CALIFORNIA -- They convinced us on a visit to Branson MO as well this was the deal of a lifetime. With our membership came a free Cruise, and the promise someone would be contacting you. SO FAR NO ONE HAS EVER CALLED US. I have had to repeatedly reach out to them. And the SO called FREE cruise...what a joke. I have had to pay 600 for port fees alone, not including any excursions, airfare, or any thing else. I looked at the Cruises online, I could of gotten a better deal if I just booked through them. WHAT is free? I still can't figure it out.

I keep paying them the money they request with the answer that "once we receive the payment, you will be contacted". Well they received their payments and it has cleared my account, but again have I heard from them. NO. They keep delaying the processes as if to purposely make you miss the "SO CALLED" free cruise, so they can keep the money. Yes I feel like I got scammed, and No I will not recommend you. You know what they say...IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT IS.

Have you ever been told which is the actual cruise line or name of the ship?The $600 port fee is a huge red flag. Port fees are way lower than that.

I recently read a story where a free cruise was offered. Turned out to be a converted ferry boat.

Feel Stupid and Got Scammed
Posted by Beezer642000 on 08/28/2013
BRANSON, MISSOURI -- Went to a presentation with Travel to Go in Branson MO, sat through their 60 minute presentation (actually lasted 90 min) and then another hour trying to see if we qualified. Seemed like such a good deal, me and my husband were gonna go on some good vacations, my son was going to use them for their honeymoon.

Have been trying for 3 weeks to talk to someone just for them to say oh we can't give you that 20% discount. Haven't been able to find any good deals on Florida trips, it seems like there is never anything available in the time that we are going. I sure wish I could get someone to call me back. Hasn't happened, they are always in a presentation. Very DISAPPOINTED

I once attended a presentation for one of those travel clubs. Other than getting a decent dinner I discovered that actually reservations for dates I wanted was next to impossible. The membership fees was outrageous. You are far better off reserving directly with hotels and airlines. And cheaper as well.

I Fell in the Hole and Got Out Easy
Posted by D_yaeggy on 06/04/2013
BRANSON, MISSOURI -- April 2013 we went to the sales pitch and after signing up we called Travel to Go and realized it was not quite what we were looking for although they were very helpful. We returned to Forever Grand Vacations who represent them in Branson MO full of trepidation due to the reviews we had read online. They treated us with respect and courtesy and we had our money returned after two weeks as they promised. Their sales pitch is heavy duty but nobody makes you go.

What about the $350 fee? Did you get that also?
Posted by Gayle on 2013-08-31:
We also purchased but got out of it within the 3-day period. We definitely didn't get fee refunded! I would advise anyone to stay away from this place.....major scam even though they treat you nicely! Deeply regret the time wasted....not too mention all the anxiety we experienced! I'd like to stand out front of their business in Branson and picket!!!
