Modern Destination Unlimited - Complaints / Reviews / Scam Reports
Travel Club Scam

This is a Complaint / Review about Modern Destination Unlimited.


Modern Destinations Unlimited or MDU” is the same company as "La Bonne Vie Travel, Dreamworks Vacation Club, Five Point Travel, and Bently Travel. MDU sent me an invitation to a presentation and offered free vacation (a cruise for 8 days/7 nights) to attend. I attended and sat through a 90 minute presentation (similar to a timeshare format)on 10/24/09. They claim to model themselves after SAMs Club and COSTCO and offer deep discounts on vacations to VIP Membership for fees that range from $5000 to $8, 000.

The DECEPTION is the actual vacation prices offered on their web site (that you can only access after you are a member) is the same or even higher priced than you get form searching the internet. In most cases you have to provide an agent with information to get a quote and you have to wait at least a day (up to 3 days)for a quote. They gave me the impression I would be able to get all the information I need to book a Cruise online. This is a misrepresentation of what they offered at the presentation. They give you the impression they purchase vacation packages for their members and offer them at cost. They claimed to make money on membership fee only. But it appears they are basically a second rate travel agency.

Also the free cruise is not so free because you have to pay taxes and destination charges (about 500 per couple). The requirements to book the trip is prohibitive at best. The contract has a clause that does not allow you to cancel the deal once you sign the contract. But they claimed satisfaction guranteed during presentation.

When I investigated the company - I found that similar travel companies residing at the same location that are being investigated. When I spoke to Terrance Wesley from MDU customer service, he confirmed that MDU also service Dreamwork Vacation Club members. .( refer to http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2009/08/nj_travel_scams.html)

MDU is a scam company that misrepresent their products but once you realized you have been scamed and request a refund they claim you are expecting more than they offered and refuse a refund
