Worldwide Travel Center Vacation Certificate Hotel Certificate SCAM!! Deerfield Beach Florida
*Consumer Comment: Vacation Certificates NOT A SCAM
*Author of original report: Worldwide Travel Center Finally Redeemed My Certificate
That's reasonable, so I promptly sent in the paperwork with the check of $50 refundable deposit they required. Two weeks later, I got the certificate returned, saying that I have to actually write a statement authorizing them to charge my credit card for the refundable deposit. Mmmm. okay, I did accordingly again and sent the certificate back to them with the additional $3 submittion fee they required. Guess what, two weeks later, I got rejected again saying that there's no hotel availability. Okay, I called them again and the representative refuse to make any reservation on line or through any other reasonable means other than mail in the certificate again with $3 resubmition fee and do the guessing process again. By then it's already August, and without my reservation confirmed, my September vacation is pretty much in ruin unless I book with another agency.
So I said to myself, okay, I'll try for a October travel dates then, guess what, after I mailed in the certificate for the 3rd time, it got rejected again, saying there's no availability, I called and called worldwidetravel center, tried to talk to their managers, no use, they hang up on you and insisted that you have to mail in the certificate for reservation. They won't even tell you among the 90+ destinations they claimed that you can choose from, what is actually available. I finally submitted my certificate again for the 4TH TIME!!!!! with the $3 processing fee and return postage etc and surely, 3 weeks later, I got the certificate returned again. By then, it's already September. So consumers out there who has gotten these certificates through other marking programs or survey rewards etc, BE VERY VERY CAREFUL. I ended up paying all these re-submittion fees without getting anything and worst of all, wasted the entire two month going back and forth with an aweful travel agency that practically do not have an intent to help you (or even want you) to redeem these certificates they issued. Put it frankly, it was a SCAM!!!!.
