Affordable Vacation International Reviews

  • Apr 1, 2017

We went to a seminar at a local hotel in Fresno. There were 3 couples and two were not very sophisticated. It sas a hard sell to get us to cough up 9 thousand dollars so we could get discounted travel services.

To get us there we were promised coupons worth $100 for dining, 2 night hotel accommodations, 2 round trip airline tickets and later even a 1 week cruise.

BUT to get it money $300 has to be sent to a shaddy organization called Fun Times Travel. A money order, not credit card (which can be reversed), and not even a check which can be blocked, just cold hard money order. Inconvenient to say the least. I know of no other business who demands a money order. Well, why won't they take a credit card? Because it is a rip off. Affodable vacations lied, there was no voucher for the dining, you have to send money to get it. There were no round trip tickets, you have to send money to get it. All was a scam. I expected to hear their pitch and decide if it was a good deal, and regardless of my choice, the vouchers would be given. HA.

Other evaluations of Fun Travel says there will be no vouchers coming. Part of the deal did not include my investment. I was lied to on the phone when I specifically asked if there was a investment on my part.

So don't waste your time on the sales meeting. I was so embarrassed that I could waste my time. Remember if it sounds to good to be true, it isn't going to be true.

Affordable Vacation International" or "AVI," I was contacted via phone from 469-965-4563 with a scripted foreigner offering me 2 tickets to fly American Airlines anywhere in the continental US. They sent me to another manager and then even a 3rd person with a call from a private number to confirm and they gave me a 3-digit confirmation code... All I had to do was attend a 90 min seminar and bring my cohabitating girlfriend or spouse.

They did a decent job of getting my email address to send me the least professional confirmation email ever from [email protected] With links to the page with even more instructions. Click on that link included to see even more details. I am convinced this is a total waste of time and money and the possibility of being ripped off for "taxes" and "processing fees" sounds awful.

This is copy pasted from the email:

We purchased a package from AVI travel on August 23, 2015 at a high pressure sales pitch at a hotel in Sacramento. After thinking about it we decided to cancel. We called the company within two days and followed up with an email on the same day. The contract indicated we had 5 days to rescind. We returned the materials to their location in Santa Clara per their instructions. It has now been 6 weeks and we haven’t received our money back. Each time we call the person on the phone becomes more and more rude and unresponsive. This person’s name is Aaron and claims to be the manager.

It has now come to the point where we have to engage an attorney to help us resolve this issue.

Please take our advice. Do not do business with these people. It is most likely a sham designed to steal money from honest people. They claim to be rated by the BBB but that claim is a lie. Beware of any offer received by this company. They and their representatives are dishonest.
