VIP Travel Complaint - VIP Travel Does Not Deliver--And You Have To Jump Through Hoops

PORT ORANGE, FLORIDA -- Many timeshare companies offer this as a bonus for visiting them. YOU GET A CERTIFICATE for a 2-3 night stay at one of 600 hotels, you get $30 gas certificate and $25 meal card. The meal card is the only thing that worked as it should. It took me 2 years and 27 pieces of correspondence to find a Holiday Inn, and when I did they KEPT MY ORIGINAL $75 REFUNDABLE FEE WHICH HAD TO BE PAID WITHIN 2 WEEKS!! or you'd lose the whole thing!! WHY DID THEY KEEP IT? because when I found a motel, they simply said " to get this date for you & price (for them), we have to keep $50 of your fee, the other $25 is for TAXES" "take it or leave it" The $30 in gas? I would have to sign up with as many internet companies I wanted (most charge a fee and also make false promises-and worry you to death and sell/ share your info and you're overwhelmed with e-mails/offers...) With each company I sign up with / purchase with, I'd send in paperwork and get a certificate for $10!!!

Total waste of time of course, and I didn't do it. I saw where another such company was sued for over $3 million for virtually the same thing! They'll also change their names, they rarely publish their contact info etc. They would not work with BBB. FRAUD!!! BEWARE!

As you have found out those certificates tend to be worthless or end up costing more than if you had reserved on your own. It's like those $99 Disney vacations that actually cost hundreds if not thousands more when it's finally added up.

MORE SITES LIKE THIS NEEDED! i DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS THE b i g ONE WHICH posts things for millions to see, possibly a u-tube type thing? They tell it all on HUGE COMPANIES/ ? But this site could be it. My first time. I wrote two things about 2 different timeshare companies - OH, LOOK O U T ! they can really take you.

We had a guy selling time shares around here a while back. Rumor has it he picked up a new gig as the poster child for Paxil and spokesmen for Liars Anonyms. (VH review)
