ED Magedson – Founder
Grand Crowne Leisure Travel Clubbranson, Missouri United States of America
My wife and I fell into this trap about 6-7 years ago. I had supressed the memory of this membership until today when I recieved a phone call from some third party dues collection agency letting me know that my annual membership fee was due and that we had over $7,000 in benefits in our package. Another $180 or so would allow us to continue to use the service. Of course I requested information from this person about GCL but none could be given. Par for the course with GCL.
It pains me to know that this company is still taking advantage of people. They sell a membership to a travel club, very clearly stating that the membership investment will be made up by travel discounts, then provide no discounts. In stark contrast to what is represented, it is far less expensive and more convenient to book your own travel online than to deal with this company.
You are better off giving your money to a charity or buying a $3,000 hamburger than giving it to this company. At least you will have some satisfaction or a meal. You will get neither with this outfit. The monetary loss, albeit sizable, is negligable compared to the years of regret and stress caused by the thought that you were "taken" by a total scam.
