Finally we tried recently to book a mini vacation on a cruise out of Galveston, afterall, we have 3000$ in cruise rewards! The end result for a 7 day cruise would've been a grand total savings from Global Escapes for... 84.00!! out of a 2500.00$ cruise.
So, I thought, let me call my travel manager (as told by them to do for help). I pulled out my global escapes binder, see the business cards for Steve Nalty and Billy Brown, dial the (512) 492-6530 # and surprise, "no longer in service". So, I call the 800 #, no live person to talk to, yet. I did use the short notice getaway once, stayed in an off beat place in Florida (all that was available). When I think what I could have used the 7245.00 + 200.00/yr added membership fees (total 7645.00) for I feel sick.
I thought maybe we can sell this membership, so as I started to investigate the possibilty of that. I came upon the BBB complaints and these ripoff complaints as well. I won't spread this poor business practice to any other unknowing soul. We now will go through the belabored hoops to cancel our membership. I see from others, this is not accomplished by merely stopping payments like they said so I'll just get the registered letters in the mail.
Thanks to all who have written. I learned a lot from all of you and will never let myself fall for this travel club scam again.
