Attended Geo-Holiday time share sales meeting in St. Hippolyte, Quebec. It is a high pressure one-on-one face to face near scripted sale, designed to get you to sign written contracts and part with money based upon dream-like promises of cheap travel. The presentation begins with casual conversation designed to allow the sales person to learn about your finances, travel and lifestyle tastes. He/she works their way inside your head.
Next, he provides you with a travel puzzle piece designed to fit precisely the missing part of your travel life. The pitch is too good to be true. You pay one time and miraculously, the exact amount of money you want to spend will buy you years of near free travel.
The ending is an attempt to satisfy your every reservation about signing on the dotted line. "What is your objection?" They orally remove the stumbling block as if the salesman had the authority to orally change the written contracts you are about to sign.
The biggest ripoff and violation of trust comes when you follow the written instructions on their website and ask to take their contracts to your "professional adviser." They will not permit you to remove copies of their literature to consider at home or to review with your lawyer or accountant.
Frankly, I am surprised Canada, or Quebec, does not have legislation outlawing such a practice. It is incredible that a consumer can be asked to pay thousands of dollars and legally denied the right to remove and review such contracts with his lawyer and accountant. The logical inference is the written documents Geo-Holiday wants you to sign do not match the oral promises of the travel club presentation.
Do not do business with any company which does not freely hand out copies of literature and documents it asks you to sign. Do not rely upon its website, as Geo clearly publishes a disclaimer that no person may rely upon the information contained on its website.
