Bookvip in Saint-Jerome, Quebec - False Advertisement and disrespect by your agent

Dear Mrs. Lara,

I am sorry you felt that we gave you false information.
First and foremost, prior to your submitting this complaint, we had already issued your refund for 100% of your money.
BookVIP has thousands of happy travelers every week and has more video testimonials from happy customers than any other travel website in the world - however not everyone will be eligible for our 77%-off packages.

All of our 77%-off promotions are sponsored by the participating resort. With such low and affordable prices, these special promotions could easily be sold-out solely to 20 year-old young adults, which is not the demographic for whom these special promotions are designed. Thus, it is necessary to have a few qualifications which must be met to be eligible to participate.

As an example - all of our promotions require that the consumer have a major credit card to check-in and not just a debit card, some age limitations, and group travel is not permitted with these promotions. Each qualification is clearly presented in writing and must be approved by the guest before the reservation can be finalized and sent to the resort

Apparently, a few days before your scheduled check-in date, you called us to confirm whether or not a credit card was required (due to your previous agreement to same) only to hear us confirm that yes you would need one.

At the time of your last call, you were in breach of the cancel or reschedule policy which very clearly states that if cancelling or rescheduling within 7 days of your travel dates, the resorts charge a rescheduling fee in the amount of $100. This is a standard practice implemented worldwide by hotels and resorts, because rooms that are cancelled at the last minute may not re-sell, resulting in a loss for the hotel or resort (as happened with the room that was reserved for you).

Despite your breach of the terms, your demand was honored and your full refund was processed within minutes of your call – and PRIOR to this online complaint.

We would recommend to anyone booking one of these 77% off vacations, to clearly read and review the terms of each offer which we post in writing on our website and in the purchase process.

We review these terms verbally with each customer, and more importantly, in writing, to ensure that there are no misunderstandings and that you are indeed eligible for an amazing vacation at a ridiculously low price!

I can be contacted directly at James@BookVip.com to resolve any issue or you can call Customer Service 24/7 at 888 845 0602. Thank you.

I am making a complaint about your agent, i booked for an hotel paradise cancun resort today around 10:30 pm to 10:50 pm

when i called to confirm for my reservation the guy said that the fact that me and my girfriend were not married do not allow us to go to this hotel... When i looked to the term and condition it was saying married or cohabiting together, when i told the guy, he put me on hold and took it off, in front of me say refresh please; very disrespectful and after he try to sell me another package of a 100 more, so instead of 299$ like in your website saying it 399$ but wait a min he said it comes up to 502$ at the end of the road to include your taxes,,, i looked to your website,,, it doesn't talk about taxes,,, you should write 399$ + Taxes to your ad...

So all this is bad customer service, and false advertisement... I am going to cancel the airplane tomorow...

Bad agent... If i was your boss and believe me; where i work if one of my people would treat all my clients like that, i would fire them...

I found this great deal to go to a beach resort for three days. After going through the whole procedure...booking online, calling the number, being placed on hold, the assistant kept asking for personal information.

If I am married, I have to travel with a spouse (not children), if I am single, I can travel with children, if I am Canadian, I can't book because the "offer" is only valid for US citizens and green card holders.

Why don't they put all the requirements online so I do not waste my time. Seriously...I am very disappointed BookingVIP.com....what a waste of my time!!!

Bookvip in Birmingham, Michigan - SCAM I have been trying to book a vacation for 6 months

Thank you for your valuable feedback. As an owner, I pride myself in BookVip offering the most discounted vacation packages and having an A+ rating Better Business Bureau for our customer service. The reason we can offer packages 70% off the retail rates is because the resorts subsidize the cost of these discounted vacations in exchange for your time during the resort preview. The resort verifies each reservation before issuing a confirmation number as resort is paying the cost of discounted vacation. A majority of the issues occur when the resort finds the terms & conditions are being circumvented. We will send over 300,000 families on dreams vacations alone this year! We have more actual customer video reviews than any other travel site. http://bookvip.com/sitereviews As a rapidly growing company we are not always perfect, however, I can be contacted directly at Jame@BookVip.com to resolve any issue or you can our call customer service call customer service 24/7 at 888 845 0602.

Problems with payment
Loss
$1200

We planned a vacation with BookVIP.com and they cancelled our vacation that was confirmed by the Villa Del Parmar resort in Cancun, Mexico. We paid for a package and were also charged more for the package than agreed upon.

We then were told our reservation was cancelled by error and that they could not give us our original reservation. They then offered a terrible resort and to pay a minimal adjustment that wasn't what the resort was even being shown to be selling at. They harassed us repeatedly, would not let us speak with supervisors or their legal department as we requested.

We are now out a vacation and the $1,200.00 for airfare to Cancun because we have no intention, after this nightmare, to spend what we wanted to go there for which is a relaxing holiday.

They intentionally also called us several times a day and kept saying we cancelled our reservation. This actually caused us duress and it's criminal what they do. They are committing fraud by scamming people into a better resort and cancelling their reservations and trying to put people in a much less of a quality resort. The difference was night and day and we had not intention of traveling all the way there since they were so shady and dishonest.

Don't use these folks. We will be filing a legal claim and also requesting compensation for the damages caused due to the duress.
