Wholesale Escapes — Beware
BEWARE of Wholesale Escapes!!!
In January 2011 I attended a sales pitch by WSE. It was presented as a one stop shop for all travel needs. I do not like to spend hours shopping around, so I thought it would be great. I purchased a membership for $4049 that included 6 anytime (Primetime) condo rental weeks, 2 Free Family and Friends passes, and unlimited 50% off Restaurant.com access. After I was a member for approximately a month, I discover the following to be true:
-You can find flights significantly cheaper elsewhere. In my case I found deals $213 cheaper per adult for an overseas flight.
-Customer Service will NOT respond to emails. I emailed customer service, the customer service manager, and the president.
-Deals offered by WSE are NO better that the FREE sites like Priceline, Expedia, etc.
-They never deliver the customer portfolio promised in the presentation.
-Ticketing option does not offer tickets to popular shows like the “Moulin Rouge” in Paris.
