Complaint / review text:
Global Travel Alliance gave a presentation at Eagles Nest Strubens Vally where they promised certain discount %'s that could be expected after the customer joined them and made the bookings through them. They presented the potential client with certain discounts that "could" be received but kept the hidden costs what the total package will eventually cost the client after 12 years with a minimum increase of 8% per Annam.
All the savings that they presented/promised at the presentation does not make up for all the funds that the client will be spending over the long term paying their annual fees and booking fees per person.in fact the client will not spend the total sum if he/she books her own accommodation over this long term period and pays in full with out discount.
Eg:- Cost to join as a member R5329.00. Up front affiliation fee R1065.00 for first year. Then a monthly cost R506.57 for 24 months= R12181.68.in the first 2 years cost thus far R18575.68. The affiliation fee increases 8% per year thus over 12 years an increase of R93 to R174 for the period 12 years, total cost of affiliation fee is over period R28960.00 Give or take a few rands. Do not present whole COST.
