Global Travel And Millenium Travel Misrepresentation of Travel Offers Scottsdale Arizona
If it is too good to be is. We fell for the biggest con ever. We received an In Honor of your Birthday solicitation ofering 3day/2night get-away that included air fare (if you res ponded within 72 hours), dining card and gas ofer. Although hesitant, we decided to call and inquire. We asked all the right questions and were given all the right answers (kinda). Asll we had to do was sit through a travel club presentation and the gifts were ours. As we are retired on a fixed income and love to travel, we thought we would go and check this club out. We sat thru the presentation and logic kept peeking in on us that the benefits and features described were to good to be true, but we gave them the benefit of the doubt. Our doubts turned to a positive NO when the cost of the membership was disclosed. After rangling with us the cost was dropped, and by this time we knew we were being scammed. We paid our regrets and declined, declined and declined again. Finally, they agreed to give us our incentive. What a joke. A circus animal doesn't have to go through so many hoops to get what was so freely offered. One of the things that stuck out more than others were the time frames. If and when you got your travel vouchers for the air and the 3day/2nite ended up with only two nights at best and 1 day...'cause. you could only leave on flights between 3 and 9 P.M.(thus arriving at your destination very late the 1st night) and you had to depart between 6 a.m and 1 p.m. (thus having to check out of your hotel in the wee hours of the morning...there goes your 3rd day). Not to mention the flights were at MilleniumTravel's discretion...who knows with how many connections. You could only arrive (guess at the hotel, as it did not specify if flights were affected) on Monday or Tuesday. I am not a lawyer (my son is and I am going to discuss this with him...and his law firm also does business in Florida) to see if promotion violates any disclosure laws. The only thing that I fear, though is that he will only say Holy Cow, Mom! How could you be so stupid? Mara maricopa, ArizonaU.S.A.

321 Travel is a scam! 321travel is a scam. Holiday from hell. They are scammers who do exactly as hundreds have said online. DO NOT USE THEM. IF YOU HAVE JUST USED THEM, THEN QUICKLY CALL YOUR CREDIT CARD/BANK TO GET THE TRANSACTION CANCELLED.Please share with friends, share online, report on any website you think we missed, report them to the banks and any other local authority that can force them closed.Here is what they are known for doing:(1) They quote you over the phone a price for the holiday. Then they take your card details over the phone and say they will book it. (2) They call you back to say that many excuses from no direct flights, or it's person only or hotel booked, etc. (3) They said it will cost more. (4) IF you ask to cancel, they say there will be a cancellation fee and then use very rude bully like tactics to get you to continue with the order. (5) Then they will use your card details to book directly with the airlines without your consent which is also illegal. (6) When you confront them for a refund or part refund, they say they can only send a cheque. This process then takes them over 1-2 months and they say it's sent with a cheque number but it never comes. (7) Then they say they need to chase it up with their banks to see if it was cashed before they can send a new one. (8) When you call back in a few days, they pretend no one took the reissue call for the cheque and a new one will be processed again so we go back to 1-2 months wait.COMPANY NAMES THEY USE:321 Travel - A REAL company that does existTravel Service Group - A fake company that does NOT EXISTThey also use: (Travelate) - A fake company that does NOT EXISTTwitter: @321travelContact Names:Ernest Bradshaw - Current Admin ManagerAdam Lewis (Adam Laurence Lewis) - last known address in a PO BOX according to Companies HouseDanny Webb - last known address is (((REDACTED)))Charlotte Naomi French - last knocn address is Ivy (((REDACTED)))Paul Douglas Pritchard - last known address in a PO BOX according to Companies HouseAddresses:312 Travel321 Travel HouseBM 321 Travel LtdLondonWC1N 3X(this is a fake address as it's only a Royal Post PO Box and not a legit office address)Telephone: 0800 1700 321Email: Number: 07827027VAT Number: 127 5363 14Travel Service GroupTravel HouseLondon WC1N3X(this is a fake address as it's only a Royal Post PO Box and not a legit office address)Telephone: 0871 4750 321Email: Never has workedVAT No 127 5363 14

BookIt travel Agency/Travel Guard travel Insurance travel insurance scam Internet
I booked hotel reservations through Bookit, in Myrtle Beach, and bought travel insurance (travel Guard) for emergiencies, including roadside assistance.Belt on van started to come apart. I called both agiencies, and was told the most they could do was give us the name of a garage. And any costs (and they doubted they would cover any) would be reembursed later. Plus, the Bookit agent (Pat) refused to let me talk to a supervisor, and accused me of wanting them to pay for a repair that was already nequired. (like we decided to drive 5 hours to Myrtle Beach w a bad belt--2 disabled senior citizens w 2 teenagers).

Grand Voyager Travel, American Voyager Travel, Travel Resources Travel scam Ripoff Dallas Texas
It is such a shame that honest people can be taken so easily. We signed up to become independent travel agents of this company on Thursday, 4/13/2006. Not knowing anything about the travel industry, we believed what they told us. We could not afford the first price they were quoting to become a member sooooo they nicely gave us a price that we COULD afford, so we signed up with them. We got a call from a foreign speaking man on Tuesday, 4/18/2006 saying our debit card would not go through. We put him on hold, checked our bank account online, there was plenty of money to cover the amount needed. I told the caller there was nothing wrong with our checking account, he asked me to give him our debit card number so he could see if he had the correct number. We may be dumb but we're not stupid, I told HIM to give me the number he was using and the amount he was trying to withdraw. After considerable shuffling of papers and speaking with someone in the background (also foreign), he finally gave me the correct number and amount. I told him to try again. We then checked the pending section of our bank account and found 3 withdrawals we did not make totalling $1,076. Today, we checked with our bank and found out that the money was deducted by someone named John Hiss in Nebraska!!!!! The bank called and spoke with him and we also spoke with him. He advised that he worked for Grand Voyager and had been asked by Mr. Samie (sp?) the owner, to get the money. I told him we were starting a Fraud Investigation regarding his activity because we HAD NOT authorized his withdrawal of ANYTHING from our account in his own personal name. Our bank is cancelling our debit card and issuing a new one and they will not deduct the withdrawals by this John Hiss from our account. We sent an email to Michelle Meradith with WESH TV in Orlando to see if she would do a report on this company so that no one else in the area would be taken. If you've suffered from this scam and live in the WESH area, send an email to Michelle also. Barbara & Allen Melbourne, FloridaU.S.A.

Horizon Travel ripoff Arlington Texas
I recieved a call from Dream Vacation 570-825-2326 tell me that Horizon Travel is a new travel agency in the area and would like to offer you a complimentary vacation to help get their business referrals and re-peat customers. All you had to do is listen to a 90 minute talk on their travel club. They do their presentation and say it will be $6995.00 membership fee, a $399.00 processing fee, and $199.00 fee for something else I don't really even know what. Then they bring out all their sales reps. and have them talk to you about signing up. We said no we can not afford that. So they knocked of some of the vacation time they give you in the package and ask you again, and again we said no. This continued for sometime, then they said they would do it for like $1695.00 and 124.00 a month for 24 months. Still around $4000.00 to join their travel group. It was high pressure sales in front a group of people. Everything is very thought out in the sales procedure. The speach is exactly the same every time, the shows they play on T.V. are exactly the same they follow a very good procedure for taking your money. Stephanie Justin, TexasU.S.A.

Avlis Travel ripoff stole money Nationwide
I was called in the first week of Nov from a man saying that i was approved for a mastercard with a credit limit with $2,500.Right before he began to explain, I grabed my tape recorder and put it to the phone.I recorded him telling me that the master card came with a free vacation,no interest until 5 years,and could be used anywhere mastercard was accepted. All he told me I had to do was pay a $349.00 processing fee.So being that he made it sound so good, I went to gather my account info.After going over my account info with him,he set the date for 11/12/04 for the transaction to take place,then he transfered me to a verification officer. The verification officer went over my account info again to make sure it was correct. I was given a contract#,and then just as we were about to hang up, I then repeatly asked him could the card be used anywhere; he replied yes,it can be used nationwide. So a couple of days after the transaction was suppose to take place the money still was not debited from my account.I called to see why they hadn't debited the money yet. A lady told me it took 5-10 days. I told her nothing don't take 5-10 days, just cancel it.She told me that she will have to speak to management and she would give me a call back,but the bitch never called. A few days later,11/22/04 I found out the money was debited anyway and after trying to call several times, I never was able to contact anyone. So basicly they stole my money. WARNING!!! Thou shall not steal,Thou shall not kill,but when I find those Avlis folks I will. Vincent Dublin, GeorgiaU.S.A.

Travel Bridge High Pressure sell
I saw a reoprt from someone named Gil about the High pressure sales pitch they experienced from Travel Bridge. I'd have to agree with Gil. My wife and I just sat through the sales pitch today at Travel Bridge in Austin Texas. They are new here in Austin. If I only new what we were in for prior to going , we would not have wasted the time. I do not like high pressure sale pitches. We were converged on by 3 different people, plus a forth manager called in to try and give us a even better discount on their $5395 package. They wanted us to write a check today for that amount without any investigating or time to talk it over between us. The free trip they give you require you to send in a $50 deposit in case you cancel on the trip. Not bad if the trip is worth it and if the process to register for the trip is smoooth (which I've read one or two nightmare stories on). We would still have to pay for transportation to the departure port in either Florida or California. We live in Austin, Texas area. I'm not going to say that there is nothing of value in the package possibly for some, but for us, it is absolutely not worth the investment. Also after reading some of the complaints I've seen on the web about Travel Bridge, I now feel we made a wise choice to not participate. I just suggest that before you jump into anything like this or any other offering, please do your homework and check things out.

Silva Travel in southern California is incredibly crooked! They sell airline tickets on-line but BEWARE! The idiots sold us an airline ticket which could not be used because it had been voided by them. We had to buy another ticket at the airport from the airline which luckily had a last minute seat available. Then the Silva morons ignored our many requests for a refund for months. Dont use Silva unless you like burning money!

Travel Industry
Have not been ripped off, but feel the travel industry takes advantage of single people by charging a surcharge. I inquired about different trips and found I would have to pay anywhere from $40 to $1000 surcharge just because I would be traveling as a single. I feel that this policy is unfair towards single people.

Expedia Travel BAD BUSINESS! Internet
I have never flown before and I booked two tickets to go and see my daughter's graduation this coming Dec. in Carbondale Illinois. I have MS and limited income as divorced woman. My former husband and youngest daughter booked flights without my son. They did not think to include him.  My son will finish his fall semester classes at Penn State University Dec. 12th. I wanted to get him a ticket so he could see his sister graduate with her Ph.D. I looked at the directions on the Expedia site and it said to book another flight. I booked three tickets on the SAME PLANE, the SAME DATE, the SAME TIME. I called to cancel the first booking. This is all in the same day or two.   I was told that my first booking could not be refunded. I was told that they are nonrefundable.  I now have five tickets for my trip to Illinois. I booked in July and tried to cancel the next day! I applied for the Expedia credit card online just so I could make the flight to Illinois in December. Now they are telling me that I can't cancel the first booking. The flight isn't until Dec. 12, 2014. SERIOUSLY! Once I pay off the card in two weeks, and close the account after the trip, (because I used the card for reservations for hotel and car) I will let everyone in the social media world see what a rip off Expedia is!!!!!!

Global Travel/Millenium Travel Pay for your Incentives Port Orange, Florida
Enticed by the prospect of free airline tickets I called the toll free number on the post card I received. I asked every question I could think of to make sure this offer was on the up and up. I was told I would receive two tickets airline tickets to anywhere in the continental U.S. and all I would have to pay was the taxes and service fees associated with the ticket. After driving 45 minutes to the presentation, enduring 90 minutes of very high pressure sales, I was given a form to fill out and mail in. I was then told it could take up to eight weeks to process. I was not informed of any of this prior to making the trip and wasting 90 minutes of my time. Then I recieve a certificate from Millenium Travel indicating I needed to send the $100 to even process my certificate and had to do so in 21 days or forfeit my incentive. I have no intention of sending them $100 so I can pay an additional fee for the taxes and fees for the airline tickets. This is the biggest scam I have ever come across. How can Global Travel call this an incentive if you have to pay for it? This should be against the law. In my opinion, Global owes me not only some form of free incentive gift but they should reimburse me for the gas I used to drive 60 miles to attend their presentation. Debra Lansing, MichiganU.S.A.

Horizon Travel AKA Travel Club International ripoff Arlington Texas
My husband and I were called by Horizion Travel, a.k.a. Travel Club Internatioal Arlington, Texas and Tempe, AZ. to sign up for vacation discount travel offers. They promised a 6 day 5 night Royal Carribean, Carnival, or Noregian Cruise if we would listen to a 90 minute presentation. We went to the presentation yesterday (March 11, 2006) in a group seeting with 15 or so other couples and were immediately set upon by 2 salesmen. We were asked if we had a major credit card (in our case our Visa debit card!!) to bring with us. We were told that they give discounts to teachers and government employees (which me and my husband are) After much pressure and enduring their closing techniques we agreed to have a look at their promised discount saving travel program (thinking we could cancel on are before 3 days - cooling off period) and they immediately processed our card for $4,073.00. It started out to be over $7,000 dollars but they kept reducting their price as time went on. AFTER being charged $4,073.00, we were told we had to go into another office to pick up our travel information book and to sign our Purchase Agreement and Acknowledgement of Benefits and Services. With our salesman hovering over us and AFTER being charged $4,073.00, we discovered in the terms of the agreement that we could NOT opt out in 3 days and that we may NOT realize any savings on airfare, hotels, or car rentals, which contradicted the sales pitch. After a lot of back slapping, howdy partner, glad to have you on board, etc etc we drove back to our home. When we arrived home we looked up the BBB and found one complaint there and then many on this web-site. We are very upset and don't know what to do. My father suggested that I call and ask for our money back, and then if that doesn't work send everything back and write a letter requesting the money and send it certified mail. Then possibly hire a lawyer. OR count our losses. Take the cruise (if we really get one at a discounted rate) and our $1000.00 in plane tickets they offered and then forget it ever happened. Richard of Celina, we would love to hear what your lawyer has said. Is there anything in the law that will help us? Does our case have hope? Is it worth our time and money?

I sent the payment to the address listed via paypal then get notice from paypal the payment wasn't picked up. In trying to do this the company tells me it's no one's fault but my own. Really now??? I just come up with bogus addresses? In searching all my emails from them I found out that the bogus email was indeed one they had put out there. It wasn't me.
