First we are supposed to be receiving 40 to 60% discounts above ALL other travel quotes on Hotels, cruises, vacation packages and vacation rentals. The Vacation Rentals are supposed to be 4 and 5 star properties. We were so excited as newlyweds to get home and start thinking about some of the amazing getaways that we can have with our limited budget. When we made it home we started to look over the options on the website. When we started looking at the rentals we were extremely disappointed. We had to look up the names of the facilities on Google to see photos and most were shocking. These places were old rundown in ruins or had other serious defects.
Then we started to get curious about the prices. We compared apples. First we checked out a vacation rental. After going through almost 50, we finally found one that was palatable so we looked it up. Kilconquhar Estate in Scotland was our first comparison: Vacation UR Way starting at $683 for one week on Kilconquhar Estate s own website its only $473 for one week during the same time period. We thought this was strange so we looked up another. Mayan Palace Puerto Penasco, Mexico: Vacation UR Way: $599 Bookit.com: $462.
Next we looked at cruises. Perhaps this is where the savings is. We checked a Bahamas Cruise: Same ports same dates: Vacation UR Way, $329, CruisesOnly.com $239. We are Guaranteed in our papers to get a 40% savings off the lowest published price on hotels. We checked it out. Rosewood Crescent: Vacation UR Way $300 and Kayak.com the same exact $300. We thought that perhaps then the savings was in the pre packaged trips.
We settled on a Loire Valley, Normandy and Paris adventure. Vacation UR Way for 9 days and 7 nights is $2779, we did one simple Google search included in the paperwork here, we found an astounding 5 star rated tour listing a detailed itinerary with 12 nights and ALL meals included and ALL taxes and fees paid for $2799.While they promised no savings on airfares or car rental we included a listing anyway for reference.
Finally, their exclusive get half of dinners is just a link to restaurant.com. This is of course free to everyone. We are sick about this and will be happy to see these con artists put out of business. We have even more screen captures of these scammers website if more proof is needed.
