The first thing you need to ask, before you sign anything, is what do I get for my money? There are always going to be companies who want to promise travel consumers the world and then not deliver.

With more vacation consumers saying no to expensive timeshare ownership and turning to travel clubs as an answer to their vacation needs, scams in the industry are also on the rise. But Sea to Ski Vacations’ travel experts say it is easy to choose a legitimate travel club by asking questions and doing your homework.

According to Stephen Andrews, spokesperson for Sea to Ski Vacations, travel clubs are quickly becoming the favorite way to travel for people who demand access to world-class resorts and all the amenities that come with such resorts. And in addition to world-class resorts and cruises, travelers are also looking for a price that allows them to travel as much as they like. With this rise in travel club popularity also come scams, Andrews said.

“The first thing you need to ask, before you sign anything, is what do I get for my money? There are always going to be companies who want to promise travel consumers the world and then not deliver. We promise Sea to Ski members nothing more than what they are going to receive and our pricing is never hidden,” he said.

“The next thing to look at when becoming part of a travel club is the membership options. Make sure you know exactly what it is going to cost you to travel as much as you want, what your ongoing obligation includes, and you should be able to look at a list of the resorts in their inventory and what the cost will be to book a vacation,” Andrews explained.

Another important factor in choosing a vacation club is to make sure the company has good customer service and trained travel experts, Andrews said. Sea to Ski Vacations offers a unique, personalized concierge service and their customer service staff are highly trained, certified travel advisers.

Sea to Ski Vacations offers its members travel options at over 7,000 world-class resorts and thousands of cruise itineraries around the world. Additionally, members also gain deeply discounted access to numerous activities, tours and excursions. Prices for a week-long vacation begin at $99.
Andrews says it is important to do your due-diligence. He suggests consumers go to the company’s website and look at everything they offer; ask for client references; and ask questions about the services being offered and how you will be able to access them.
