Is it a ticket to paradise? Or a Ticket to Trouble?

Andy Wise Andy Wise

A travel product that is accused of being deceptive.  A travel club that will not cooperate.  A free travel offer that is not free

Action News 5's Chief Consumer Investigator Andy Wise's special report will focus on a travel club that has been set up in a mid-south hotel.  People who paid up-front to get a travel deal are regretting that decision.

"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," said a woman who paid to be part of the travel club.  "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.
