[Resolved] TravelSmart VIP Vacations — travelsmart vacation club practises
We were grossly mislead about what we were buying into. The salesperson showed us the required points & associated fees in a brochure, assuring us that we were purchasing enough points to stay in a premium room while traveling in any season. We were also shown user fees that ranged from $67-$120 per day depending on the room in which you stay. While attempting to book a vacation 1 year later, I learned that we are 5, 000-12, 000 points shy of staying in the least desirable room in the resort during prime or premium season. Also, the daily fee to stay in this average room is now $177 per day, for a total of $2478 in user fees for the 2 of us for the required 7 day stay. This does not include airline tickets. Keep in mind, this is after the exorbitant price we paid to belong to this club. What a scam! This is a typical bate & switch scam for which time share companies are known. Also included in our "deal" is that they will take our old timeshare off our hands as a trade. Of course, no one knows anything about this deal. We have not been able to find out who to get the deed to for transfer. Shame on TravelSmart & shame on us for falling for this scam! RUN AWAY! Don't get sucked into their sales pitch, they lie & scam like everyone else.
