Montreal Nitelife Tours, Inc. is offering a guide on how to choose a company, Part 1:
Planning a Montreal trip?

Planning on hiring a Montreal VIP company?
Coming down for New Year's Eve in Montreal?
As a consumer, we usually do not know the industry regulations of the products and services we wish to purchase. There are companies that take advantage of the lack of consumer awareness, and attempt to dupe their clients for a quick buck.
We are in an age where starting a company has never been easier. To some, it's as simple as starting a website, before ever registering a company name with local government. To others, they may use the internet to misrepresent facts and affiliations, and even operate illegally.
Montreal has become a great destination for bachelor parties, new years, and trips of all kinds (http://www.montrealnitelifetours.com/).
A few things you should know, in choosing companies wisely.
1. Misrepresentation of Facts: Beware of all information and claims that are not independently verifiable. A popular way of misrepresenting facts is websites' "in the news/ media coverage" posts and claims.
- Beware of fake news/media posts, without live links to the publisher
Anyone can copy and paste a logo, splash in on their site, add a quote, and make it pass like a credible plug.
- Posts with unauthorized use of corporate logos infringe on copyright and trademark laws
Examples of live links/ proof of coverage looks like this: http://www.montrealnitelifetours.com/pages/inthenews/
2. Accreditations, Affiliations, Memberships, Credentials: How relevant are they, and why are they being shown? Companies can simply pay a monthly or yearly fee to be part of them, but this "accreditation" doesn't "accredit" anything- it is simply a membership, which anyone can pay for, without any added value for you.
- Look and ask for accreditations that require regular inspections, strict regulations, and/or financial audits.
3. Travel Services: If a party or event planner offers travel services (Montreal hotel accommodations or transportation services), they are required by law to operate with a travel license to offer these services.
- Always book travel services with a company that is licensed. Most travel agency permits require bonds to operate (these bonds protect consumers), require Trust Accounting, and agencies are regularly inspected for industry compliance and financial obligation issues.
Example of what to look for here: http://www.montrealnitelifetours.com/pages/tico
4. "The Boiler Room" Sales Approach: If you haven't already, watch this movie about sales. One of their best lines:
- "You can be whoever you want to be on the phone"
Companies can be and say whatever they want to close their sale. Make sure that what they say is realistic and credible.
- All the information the company claims should be independently verifiable for it to matter.
If a VIP services company says they guarantee VIP rooms and no cover charges into nightclubs, ask yourself how can the club make any money if they allow people in for free, and they let non-spenders into their VIP rooms?
- Do not fall trap to "over the phone" sales tactics and manipulations.
If a company promises 1 host with you at all times, wouldn't it be possible that they manipulate where you go so that the host is waiting for you at the club, so it looks like he's with you, but he's actually there with all their other groups also?
