Anyone a member of Coast to Coast Grand Getaways?

This travel service company says they have 1.9 million members so if you're one of those, please let us know the good or the bad. Do they really save you thousands on travel costs? Are their vacation rentals as great as they say?

1. Re: Anyone a member of Coast to Coast Grand Getaways?

I couldn't find any reference to this company, using the search of past discussion threads here in the Bargain Forum on TA.

However, found a few online warnings using google search. A just a quick view of these posts should be enough to steer you far clear of this company.

Glad you decided to check out the company before you signed on. It seems many people think they've found a bargain/great deal and it's not until they start to think maybe they didn't get what they thought they would that they research the company.

I think that these companies that suggest they will save you huge amounts of money after you give them huge amounts of money to join are always suspect. In my opinion the only way to save huge amounts of money on travel is by spending the time to learn how to find the best deals - and then to do the research for each trip and find the best deals. Throw in some luck and there you have it.

Time and hard work = money saved.

Something for nothing = nothing.

Would you care to address the problems that seem to appear in the list of links above? Seems like a valued member of the TA community found a list of websites that suggest people have had problems with your company.

Some people make scamming people their livelihood as well and sounds to me like Coast to Coast has them in their employ.

All of the complaintrs have been resolved. Most of them have to do with the distributor and not the club they bought into. They are typically misunderstandings, such as members contacting the salesman to fufill all of their gifts... OR they attribute their "door prizes" as representation of the membership they spent thousands on...when really those items have terms and conditions (of which these people don't read) that our membership doesn't have.

Scam companies don't last 40 years.

Not to mention - most of these "complaints" come from members that haven't even attempted to book anything, or were going about the wrong way to do it..
