I went to a sales presentation six months ago in Wilkes Barre, PA. Everything seemed great. Inflation protected vacations at $500 a month. I understood the additional $99 processing fee, the $30 a night bedroom upgrades and $30 a night prime season upgrades. It's just me an my girlfriend, so the $500 + $99 was still a steal at $600 a vacation.
But when I tried to book my vacation I discovered that EVERYTHING is prime season ALL THE TIME. Worse, I could never find a 1 bedroom property. If I was lucky I could only find a 2 bedroom unit, but even then I could never find a property where I wanted to go. There was just no availability. For the record, that $600 vacation suddenly became a $600 + $210 for prime + $210 for a second bedroom because they never had any one bedrooms available. So best I could find was $1020 at a location we didn't even want to go to. Tack on the $350 a year service charge and you have $1370 for one vacation!!!!
I tried to cancel explaining that they couldn't deliver what I was promised at the sales presentation. They told me no. I kept calling and asked to speak to managers. Finally someone told me I could cancel but I would have to sign a gag order preventing me from ever speaking about the company to anyone. Unreal. I refused and am still fighting them. I stopped paying my bills but they keep calling and harassing me even though I have asked them not to. I have filed complaints with the attorney general and federal trade commission.
Just say NO. Don't make the stupid mistake I did. To rub salt in the wounds I've seen way better deals almost every week in my email box from Travelzoo...but since I lost so much money to Travel Advantage Network I can't even take advantage of them. Grrrrrrr.
