f

I received several faxes at our corporate office regarding a 5 day/4night vacation to Hawaii for two (2 for 1 air) for $199.98, valued at $999.99. The cost of this package that they advertise for 199.98 quickly went up to over $1200 in fees. The details and promises made during my initial call were mostly all false, in order to get me to sign up for the package and provide them with a $400 deposit. There were also processing fees of $140 (x2). The 2 for 1 airfare was quoted to be no more than $405, which actually turned out to be $800 (going rate on Alaska air is 350 p/person with all taxes included). If i booked through their 2 for 1 airfare program, i would’ve already lost out $100 on airfare. So, i was trying to make a trip to Hawaii for a wedding that was in October. I started this whole process at the end of June/early July. By the time i got the final vouchers, which still needed to be submitted for processing, which didn’t arrive until September, I was already fearful that I would need to make other arrangements outside of this program. There clearly was not enough time to submit my vouchers in time to secure reservations within my required time frame. When I first called, my #1 concern was the timing of this and I was assured that there was plenty of time to secure reservations for my desired date. Obviously that was false. They send you some forms which you need to send out to other travel agencies and wait for their response and then submit their required documentation and “additional”” fees. Additionally

when I first called

I was assured that I would be able to book a room at any MAJOR hotel chain of my choice. It was re-iterated several times that I’d be able to choose ANY MAJOR HOTEL chain of my choice. According to this packet

accomodations are secured through “”TRIPS Resort Condominiums””. This does not sound anything like a hotel

nor is it as promised
