Corporate Travel was brought to the BBB’s attention on July 20, 2011 by a West Michigan business owner. The company had received an unsolicited fax offer of “discounted travel voucher” package deals.
The fax displays the BBB Accredited Business Seal; this company is NOT accredited with the BBB of Western Michigan or any other BBB under the name of Corporate Travel. The BBB in Spokane, Washington, has also received information regarding these faxes arriving in their area.
BBB contacted the company via phone; however, the persons answering the phone refuse to provide any information to the BBB regarding their company.
A “secret shop” phone call conducted by the BBB in Spokane produced information that the consumers pays $175.00 pp up front and must be paid now to “guarantee the price” which does not include airfare but does include a 5 star hotel, food and drinks (including alcohol, snacks), water sports, and room service 24 hours a day and that you must travel within the next 18 months. If you do not accept the deal immediately or ask to call back; the price then goes up to $399.00 per night. Once you pay for the travel voucher they will send you an email with everything in writing.
Corporate Travel is also in violation of both state and federal laws that prohibit the use of a fax machine to transmit unsolicited advertising messages.
