Design Vacation / Bogus holiday club

1 Ireland Review updated:

I would like to warn people about a bogus holiday club "Design Vacation"operating from Club Puerto Atlantico in Arguinegan,Gran Canaria.We paid almost 10,000 euro in Jan 2006 for 2 weeks a year holidays in 4 and 5 star accomadation for 25 years.So far we managed one holiday.Every time we try to book they dont reply to e mails or come back with alternative holidays in 2-3 star accomadation at high additional prices.I wrote to withdraw membership and get some money back and recieved no reply.I went to my solicitor who advised me to go through the European Consumer agency which i am in the process of.I advise people to stay well away from this scam even though they are very convincing.

    Don't touch this company! We were caught in 2004 but luckily managed to get our deposit back. Another company linked with this scam is Globel Travel Network who operate from Malaga in Spain. Do not touch also as they say they can get money by selling your stake in VD. They can't. They ask for a deposit of 12oo euros which you cannot get back.
