  • Scam, High Pressure Sales, and LIES Bogus gifts (worthless)



    My wife received a letter about a free water park trip to attend a 90 minute meeting in Whitehall, PA. After 90 minutes of the pitch, they opened the doors and the sales people came in and the turned on LOUD music. I could not make anything out. I had to lean into the person to hear him. The girl's name was Jo, the main manager was Clint and the sales kid was so shy. I hope this kid knows he cheated me and wife out of money for a SCAM. We just sent a fax to GDV for a refund and then we will meet with the Attorney General and the BBB about this. I also left my lawyer a message to... More...

  • HAPPY HAPPY



    We have been with Global for the past three years. We have taken 6 vacations, 2 a year. We've been to 3 Caribbean condos and two in Florida and one to Galveston, TX. Loved all of our vacations and can't wait to take more. Customer service is out standing. So happy we bought into our dream vacations that are turning realistic in our life. Thanks Global and keep up the neat places and areas to rent from. Bob and Sandy More...

  • FANTASTIC VACATIONS!



    We have been members for 3 years and have had nothing but wonderful experiences! From the great customer service to the beautiful places we have visited, we are extremely pleased. I ready some of the reviews and there are complaints about the free gifts- those have nothing to do with Global and are given from a marketing company in your area. The membership with Global has been the best decision we have made to enable traveling all over the globe. More...

  • Good Experience



    We joined with Global about this time last year (2012) and have since gone on two vacations. The first was to Grand Myan Riveara Mya - it was fantastic! And i would HIGHLY reccomend! Beautiful resort,our rooms were clean and we had maid service in the morning with turn down service at night, we stayed in building 8 which was a bit of a walk to the pools but the shuttles were always running. We are planning another trip there in 2015. Our second trip was to Myrtle, not as happy with the room, but was fairly clean, had odd oder (a bottle of frabreeze fixed that) and it was ocean view vs... More...

  • SCAM - Seeking Refund



    A year ago I fell for the sales pitch presented to sign up for Global Discovery Vacations. I thought my son would be able to use it for his honeymoon. The trip prices were very high and they were not able to use it. No one in my family is using the plan and I would like a refund. I called the company and they said they do not give refunds and I could try to sell the membership. Has anyone ever received a refund from GDV? More...

  • Midleading and fraudlent sales pratices.



    This is a complaint that involves a sales organization that represents GDV. We were in Daytona Beach, Fl on vacation and these people somehow got our room telephone number at the resort we were staying at and harassed us until we came to one of their sales presentations. We were pushed through the process of purchasing one of the packages. In fact, no one was allowed to ask questions while the very slick presenter was making his assertions. The whole time we were there they were promoting the fact that they were an A company with the BBB so naturally that let our defenses down some. They... More...

  • Satisified with travel experience



    I have owned my travel voucher with Global since 2007 and have traveled to Breckenridge, St Maartin, Hawaii, Myrtle Beach, Texas, Puerta Vallarta 2 x, Sante Fe and Las Vegas for a free hotel stay. All accomodations have been very nice...some better than others. My husband's comment when we arrived in Myrtle Beach at the resort was "I have never experienced such opulence in my life". There were times that some things that were listed that they offered such as (swimming pool) or (gym) were not at the resort. However, when I called Global to ask about it during our stay they...

  • Unethical Business Practices



    I was told on years I didn't want to pay the Activity Fee I simply didn't pay. The billing company added the Activity Fee to my open credit account without mine or my husband's authorization. That tanked my credit score because the account no longer had 30% of the balance paid off. The agreement didn't say that the Activity Fee would be added every year automatically. I didn't know I have 45 days to ask for the charge to be removed. I never knew to look for additional charges on this bill. The money comes out of my bank account every month. I just had to make...

  • Pleased so far



    We joined the club in 1/12 and have been very pleased so far. We've stayed at Breckenridge, Sonoma Valley, Las Vegas, and Beaver Creek, and have trips booked in 2013 for Texas, The Caymans, France, and Hawaii, the last two for two weeks each. I research every hotel on Trip Advisor before I book it. Some of the places are dumps that we avoid. Others are outstanding. We have to plan ahead a little farther than we are used to, but if you do it is a great deal. My advice to others: First, if you are going through all of the process just for the free trip, you may be... More...

  • Contract cancellation



    Dear Global Discovery Vacations, A year ago my husband and I attended a presentation and reluctantly signed up, believing we would use the membership. We were promised two free airline tickets which would have cost us $50/person if we had paid for the vouchers. This is misleading advertising. What's more concerning is that we need to opt out of the agreement so that funds can be used for my Mom's cancer treatment. This is more important and therefore, no time in the future for any fun trips. One of your c/s reps indicated we couldn't opt out of the agreement unless it... More...

  • No termination option when joining Global Discovery Vacations



    My husband and I attended a 90-minute presentation last October 2011 with the promise we would receive two free airline tickets. We foolishly joined not realizing it said we only had three days to cancel out. The website has very few options to choose from and quite different than what was presented to us. I sent in for the free airline tickets and was sent back vouchers that would cost $50 per person - totally not free.

    Wow...I am sorry to see so many unhappy comments with global. We purchased several years ago and although they don't always have the exact place we want to go, they try their best to accomodate us. The places we have stayed have been relatively nice and we like the price! Global has allowed us to stay places we would not normally go to..such as..Stowe, Vermont.

    Myself and my fiancée went to the initial presentation which was by invitation for my birthday. I'm a skeptic ....I know nothing in life is free! However the sales presentation was excellent, well presented and thoroughly explained. Our free incentives had a 21 day response, during that iomega I experienced a death and was not able to meet the deadline. One phone call and GDV amended my date and extended my response time!

    Contacted Global to determine availability for Tennessee in 8 months. They stated I needed to complete a request form. At end of form you are obligated to provide credit card info, before submit in order to determine availability. Considering I am just recovering from a credit card fraud case, this is not an option for me.

    We have taken a vacation with Global and we loved it!!! At first it was a challenge and we ended up contacting the vice president. He took care of everything for us and got us a travel agent that was amazing!! The hotel we stayed at was island links in Hilton Head. The stay there was fabulous, no complaints! We could ride our bike wherever, the pool had a zero depth entry and mushrooms with the water coming down, perfect for kids! There was also another pool that was geared towards adults. We pay about $500 total with our yearly fee and our processing fee. I was extremely skeptical... More...

    A couple of years ago, I tried to make a reservation with Global Discovery in Aruba about 6 months prior to my requested date and I was told that requests should be made 13 months in advance and we weren't able to go. So on March 23rd of this year, I put in request 287653 for Aruba for the week of either 4/14/2012 or 4/21/2012.

    My wife and I joined Global about 5 years ago and so far I'm pleased with the results. Like others have said, it's a significant up front cost but the resorts we've gotten have been very nice, checking in has been no problem and we've gotten to some off the beaten path places that we'd otherwise never have seen. I must say that we rarely get our first choice of dates or locations but my thought is that I'll be more flexible in retirement and will get a good deal on lodging at some unusual places. More...

    Global Discovery Vacations promises no less than 3 Star stays at condos globally (resort areas - not major cities) for a membership fee that is far less than buying a time share, but still thousands of dollars. We thought with a family of five that this would be a great way to travel to interesting places without having to pay resort prices. The problem is that these condos are not what they promised. We used our membership to stay at Club Cala des Palmas in Puerto Rico for our first trip. Our room was old, filthy, moldy. Everything was chipped, the grout on the tiled floors looked... More...

We joined and have more than made our money back . The places we have stayed have been very upscale . Pay attention and do your home work .Read the rules and give them plenty of time to search for the resorts of your choice .The up front gifts were a scam but most everything you see listed as free are . It takes a lot of work and patience but it works

I have used them and have no complaints. I would like to see them in bigger cities like chicago, new york, twin cities. I spent three weeks (21 days) in los angelos and it only cost me $700.00. Thats less than $35.00 a day for great locations. Keep in mind that you will always have people that want a mansion for a buck. If your first stay did not work, try somewhere else. All my stays have been great at a low price.

The truth as I know it from a business/finance/business-systems guy:

Background: I've been a Global Discovery member for 5-6 years now. I originally paid $6k for the club (giving me 6 "stars"). Yearly maintenance fees are a bit under $400 (increases promised to be limited). Each week of travel is $96 regardless of upgrades (off peak weeks are 1 star, peak weeks add star, add a bedroom add a star). 6 stars, $200 booking fees, and $$389 annual maintenance fees will buy me 2 peak week vacations, each in a 2BR resort. I could add a third vacation if I had booked all 1 BR's instead, of course this would cost an additional booking fee ($96). Annualizing the purchase cost (I figure money is worth about 10%) I figure that my annual cost will have been under $1200 for two 7-day, 2Br resort vacations.

The good: I've found this is the least expensive way to travel timeshare-like resorts. Each resort has all the amenities of a timeshare resort (full kitchen, bathrooms usually including hot tub, resort amenities, etc.) but with less cost. A decent timeshare (even on E-bay) goes for $4k-$6k, sometimes it seems that you can less expensive ones, but also I understand they trade for less value? Let's average $5k for a decent 1 week of standard value. "Maintenance Fees" will run from $250-$700+ annually (let's assume $400 for our valuation). RCI charges $70 (when purchased in 5 year increments), and $200 when you want to book a vacation. There may be other fees as well, but we'll assume none for this calculation. Annual cost for one week will have been $1070; naturally the $70 is more worthwhile when owning more than one week, but otherwise costs are linear for more than one week of vacation. For nearly the same price I get double the vacation. If you're someone who bought a $25,000+ timeshare...you're either very well off or don't understand money. We could do this same exercise with other vacation methods and I believe the vacation club comes out ahead in every circumstance (save the housing swap, the staying with friends/family, or couchsurfing). You can find resorts almost as cheap on the Internet, but I think the service is worth the commitment.

The Bad: Global Discovery Vacations seems to actual own relatively little as far as "exclusive" resorts. Most resorts are the leftovers GDV is able to negotiate with resorts and other exchange networks. This means the resorts are nearly never as nice as the average resort available through RCI, II, etc. I didn't realize this when I bought the package, but given the financial savings I would make the same decision again.

The Ugly: The marketing company(ies) used to promote GDV are dishonest, manipulative, and plain bad. The promises are grand (90 min, no pressure, and amazing gifts), and deliveries shallow (120+ min, high pressure, worthless gifts). Once a member, the marketing companies will offer great things to hold sales parties of your own...these promises too are empty. They actually break a number of agency laws in their deception, GDV should really reevaluate their marketing plan. My rate is $200/hr if you're interested GDV.

The Useless: Everything other than the vacation club. A "free" membership to a discount club is included, worthless. Discounts on airlines, cruises, hotels...are not as good as Kayak or SkyAuction.

The Miscellaneously Useful:
1. GDV, like all the other exchange companies, offer last minute deals...these can be nice if they happen to work for you.
2. My membership (they told me because I signed up for the highest package possible, I don't know if this is true) includes a concierge service. I've used them on several trips to help me figure out what to do, where to eat, and how to get there.
3. My membership (they also told me because I signed up for the highest package, also don't know if it's true) allows me to sign up 13 months in advance when others may only sign up 12 months in advance. If you can plan far enough ahead, this can be useful.

My husband and I love Global. We did have 1 initial disappointment when we were told we'd get 0% financing for a period of time and it was not honored. On the flip side, we've pretty much paid for our vacation package with the money we've saved on the vacations taken so far. We booked our honeymoon in Kauai, HI using global and were more than extrememly satisfied. We used global to go back to Maui and Kauai for our 1 yr Anniversary. We also booked our 2 weeks in Kauai for our 2 yr annivesary for 2 weeks. It seems like the key to making reservations is to book as early as possible. We booked all of our trips as early as Global would possible let us and have never had an issue w/ availability. We've actually been able to book the resort we wanted each time. The bottom line is that our accomodation cost for 2 weeks in Hawaii is only $200...can't beat that anywhere. Because of this, will be able to take family vacations in Hawaii regularly.

I was asked if I wanted to sign up for a Vacation Membership Club and I declined. I walked out with a vacation to the Bahamas and all we paid out of pocket for a 2000 cruise was $99.00 just make sure you read the fine print as far as when to send in your voucher for your vacation. I LOVED the cruise it was top of line on everything. People book cruises and vacations and when they cannot attend this company buys the slots thats how they can give them away for dirt cheap.

Have been satisfied customer to date. Have found global to be reponsive and business like company. Would gladly recomend without reservation. This would not be valuable if you do not use it.

we were not able to use our vacations this year but were told we could always have access to the buying program that the membership fee was for vacations only but that is not the case so we are very disappointed

We've been a member for 7 years. We have 6 stars. We use all six every year. We have been all over the world. We've never had a problem with Global at all I feel like it has been the best money I have ever spent. There was only one time they were not able to accomodate us. In that case I did not give them much notice. I don't consider it their fault. If you are having problems I would guess it is simply the local people you are working with. Call Eric Stout at the home office.

We have been global members for over 6 years and absolutely love it. We have compared our plan to other vacation clubs and global is by far the best. We have stayed in Florida, Atlantic City, NJ., Arizona, and have had wonderful resorts. We have upgraded twice and are thrilled with our plan. We have another vacation planned over Christmas. We couldn't be happier.

The sales reps showed a BBB A+ rating, but when I looked it up later, I saw it has a "C" rating.

This company and its distributors are shady. I paid for the membership in two payments of 2000 and after the last payment I never received anything from them in the form of access codes to arrange trips or anything that was promised. I gave them ample opportunity to make it right and I was told that It would be corrected and my package would be received. I promptly disputed the charges with my credit card company will full details and recently I got my 4000 back as a credit. I am now soured against these types of travel clubs. I am lucky that I am not out of my money.
