  • Avatar Hello.... I need to know more info about a travel site called to find out if they are legit.?
    Aug 04, 2006 by Hello.... | Posted in Air Travel

    This travel agent type site offers amazing package deals and I want to insure they are 'for real' before I invest. They claim to be 'associated' with members of the BBB and the Dublin Chamber of Commerce in CA however they are not members themselves. They are based out of Philadelphia, PA. Has anyone heard of them - done business with them?

    • You answered your own question...I mean I'M associated with members of the BBB, I go drinking with them every Saturday.
      Big whoop. And why are they a member of a California city's Chamber of Commerce if they're in … it's only Continental US, despite the locations they list around the world. For 465.00 you can get a number of condos around the country for a week, and know what you're getting ahead of time

      Don't do it!
