Does anyone of you have a lawyer friend who is able to help to have a look at the mailer that they are sending out? Is the mailer promising something that they are not fulfilling?

Hi everyone,

It is sad to say I only discovered this site after being a member. I took up GCR membership for three years. I paid a total of 5K. All those who are considering joing them, PLEASE DO NOT. The amount you will be paying them will come to your holiday cost. The accomodation that they offer are Timeshare apartments and hotels which it is hard to say meet the 4 star or 5 star level to my standards. Let me inform you in KL they offer accomodation in Duta Vista (A Timeshare property), Grand Seasons, Crown Princess, KL Suites, Berjaya Time Square, Legend and few others. My first experience was to book for a holiday in Maldives. If you have been for their presentation they mention about Maldives Hilton at 500 plus for a week in a suite. That is all a lie when it came to my booking. They did not have the hotel at that price and were offering me other packages. These packages were what I could get from other travel agents probably cheaper by a few hundred dollar cheaper. When I question them about their presentation, it took them 2 to 3 days before they answered my calls. each time you call them, sorry sir the travel agaent is busy with a client. They only return my call when I raised my voice and told them I was coming down to their office to settle the matter there. They accomodation is only with limited units at the special price, this is their claim which no one can verify. I was booking this holiday 1 month in advance. I do not see any 60 to 70 % savings. I made a calculation of what GCR offer to that what is offered over the net by others, the difference is not much. I had just put in a request for Bali, to visit in December, let see what they offer. I will keep everyone informed on the outcome. BUT PLEASE DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY IN THIS.
