Never send them any money!

Complaint Rating:  94 % with 218 votes
This is a complaint about the services offered by E Tour & Travel, a vacation ownership broker & telemarketer. E Tour & Travel (aka etourandtravel.com), based in Orlando, FL is an aggressive telemarketing vacation planning organization with the intent to sell timeshares. They call and offer a vacation package that is almost too good to be true, but just pricey enough to seem legitimate.

The phone call starts with an offer to visit Orlando, Daytona Beach, and New Smyrna Beach (or other destination) for the low cost of $398. The $398 includes hotel accommodations, rental car for a week, and a voucher for two to the consumer's choice of pre-selected local attractions.

The telemarketer insists that there is no timeshare meeting required, and that you have 15 days from the receipt of the package to look it over and cancel for a full refund. If you call to cancel, you are again wooed by the telemarketer who insists that they know about your financial situation and to smooth things over will bill you once for $98 and 4 equal installments of $75 thereafter.

It is important to note the following: According to the documents you receive in the mail, you indeed ARE required to attend the timeshare seminars with your spouse AT ALL LOCATIONS in order to receive your vouchers that pay for the hotel accommodations and attractions. You are also required to cancel within 15 calendar days (inclusive of weekends and holidays) from the day your purchase is made in order to receive a full refund. Finally, you are only allowed 7 days in a rental car, though the accommodations can include up to 9 nights and 10 days.

If you miss the 15-day deadline, customer service is non existent and extraordinarily rude. These are people who you DO NOT want to have access to any of your money. Finally, a call to the corporate offices and attempting to speak with VP/COO Lance Croft (Contact name listed by the BBB) and threatening BBB action as well as contacting their attraction partners yielded satisfactory results. It is important that you maintain the names, employee numbers and times and dates of all correspondence by phone, as management will make excuses that the telemarketers and customer service personnel are not E Tour employees, but rather 'affiliates'. This is a statement that is contradicted by the people actually making the calls who claim to be employees of E Tours.

Please avoid getting to this point by NEVER sending them any money to begin with and promptly asking to be removed from their mailing and/or calling lists.

We was offered another package alot cheaper then the one before because of the inconvience. Here we go again planing a trip for Orlando, Florida in June. Etour customer service is very rude and disrespectful. You find yourself agruing with them about something you already paid for.

I just purchased there vacation package for 149.00 this is suppose to include 4 days and 3 nights in Orlando Florida and 4 days and 3 nights in Daytona. After reading this i am very scared. I am going to request a full refund but i think i have been scammed. Someone really needs to shut these people down. I was aware of the 90 minute tour but I was not aware of other charges that they charged people. I have not recieved the package yet but i am just going to ask for a full refund. I wish i would of seen these complaints before ordering from them.

You guys are all idiots, if you just read their terms and conditions for their package you would see exactly what they are obligated to offer you for your money. This company has been in business for over 10 years and if they were a scam they would have to change their company name or have been brought down by now. If you are stupid enough to believe everything you are told on the line then you deserve to be deceived. Regardless you get a discount vacation because of a timeshare tour and it is simple as that, if you didnt want to go on the tour then dont be a cheap $%^& and pay for the whole cost of the vacation. They have discounts on flights UP TO 100 dollars a ticket not 100 dollars jeez people just like to hear what they want to hear. You get a rental car that cost practically nothing. TAXES are applied to everything have you ever bought anything in this country you morons. It just bothers me that idiots complain about legitimate travel agencies in florida when they are barely paying the full cost of the vacation and all they have to do is sit through a 90 minute tour to get hundreds of dollars off in vacation costs. If you have such big complaints and demands go pay full cost in hotels and tickets along with your rental car which would be somewhere around 1200 dollars for an equivalent package and stop littering the internet with your stupidity.
