Action News 5's Chief Consumer Investigator Andy Wise is hard at work on his special report called "Ticket to Trouble".

The report focuses on a travel club that has been set up in a mid-south hotel for the last month, luring people in to pay for what they consider huge travel discounts.

What Andy found is that when people realize what they are actually paying for, they have a devil of a time trying to get out of it.

"I sent a receipt request in certified mail Monday and I called them Monday.  It was day one of the three business days to cancel.  The woman that I spoke with said 'Yeah I received your e-mail, we'll go ahead and cancel your contract.' And I said 'I want to make sure I'm not charged this $2,400.' And she said 'Yeah, we'll go ahead and void it.'  And two days later it showed up on my credit card," said a woman who paid to be part of the travel club.
