Making a long story short: I was sent a notice in the mail, if we go and listen to a Travel Club for 90 minutes,, we will get a three nights and two days, including airfare to any place in the US, mexico and Canada.
After driving to Columbia Md from Alexandria VA,, last night, June 20, we listened to what we thought was going to be presentation of a timeshare/or travel club,, it was much worse All for the low price of 10K, plus 96.00 plus 389.00 per year, we could have had the privelege of allowing them book "at far flung places",,on vacations.. no airfare included except something called HOTLINES.. murkier, when I questioned him, Doug, he said you go on the internet and if the club is leaving from the so called Hotline destination,, and you have to fly yourself there.. like from DC to San Diego then you can get on the cruise,,etc.. and also you have to give them 6 months notice,, and of course if you miss out, for any reason, you lose that trip,, works on accummulation stars.. it was a total nonsensical mess. When we asked about the airfare to and from the socalled exclusive resorts, and I just now found out that resorts are at the descretion of the WORLDWIDE Travel and on rip off report,, it turns out nothing is available.. see other reports and they put in notel motel..
We are both almost 60 and have traveled around the world,, and it was late, so after I heard all this,, now going on almost two hours,, of this I finally said look, it is late, and I have an hour drive home, I have heard all I want to hear, it sounds confusing I don't see the value of my dollar, just give us the so called gift,, (on the phone they said we would get two airlines tickets after the presentation) ,, the young woman said to me,, you will be very sorry that you didn't accept this offer... etc,, and she handed us a piece of paper,, and she said "you are now gifted" ,, just now I am checking out the gifts and all are under the auspices of the WorldWide Travel with tons of exclusions and provisos, and btw, nothing is free the shipping and handling of the tickets, etc and reservation is a minimum of 50.-90.00 dollars per personm and then a one time (sure) registrations fee of 100.00 and all tips etc, food drink, etc are our responsibility,,
HELLO Worldwide Travel, and Global Services Incorporated,, thank God I didn sign any papers last night, because not only would I have buyer's remorse,, I would be seeking legal action and cancelling the sale
Super high pressure sales tactics and beautiful photos were used,, and also a "sad story" ..from all the people there,,
I hope some of those other people there walked out when we did
