My husband and I went to Branson, MO in March 2008 and sat through a 90-minute presentation by Vacation Travel Club (VTC). The discounted vacations at their resorts was too good to be true.
That should have been red flag #1. Other couples attending the presentation claimed to have been previous customers and raved about their experiences with VTC. Very deceiving indeed. We paid $6,000 to join.
In the two plus years we've been a member, we have tried to book travel with them and NEVER got a call back, except for two times. Those two return calls were for travel arrangements I was trying to coordinate for my military son. Not only did they take days in getting back to me, but their rates were at least $80 more than what I could get off Orbitz, which is one of the higher priced on-line ticketing sources. We have been ripped off of $6,000!!
What a scam. Do not get sucked into any presentation by anyone!!
Monetary Loss: $6.
