Yet again Voyager Travel and Lifestyle Holidays is brought to the attention of Holiday Makers in Gran Canaria due to their activities on the streets and presentations at the Club Puerto Atlántico.
As you can see these companies not only target British Holiday Makers in the Canary Islands but also other nationalities such as Dutch, Swedish and Norwegian.
We found a recent article on the web where it is explained in detail what happened to some holiday makers that were stopped on the streets of the Playa del Inglés in Gran Canaria.
Although the blog article is in Swedish, we really feel it is important for all consumers to be aware of this and even the translated version is understandable and complete.
The blog article can be found on the following link:
Typical approach of young people who appear to be working for the Tourist department, providing information about the area and handing over scratch cards for a prize draw. Guess what, they had the main prize and the only thing the Holiday makers needed to do was go and pick it up…
For several years now, employees or the so called OPC’s from the group of companies Day International Marketing SL, Wunschurlaub SL, Lifestyle Holidays and several others, are day in day out talking to consumers in order to sell their product called Voyager Travel, pretending to be employed by the Gran Canaria Tourism Office!
These OPC’s are mainly situated in the areas with most tourism such as The Playa del Inglés and Puerto Rico, and they “harass” the tourists on the streets telling them they are doing a questionnaire from the Tourism Office and promoting the tourism in the area
They literally tell the consumers “working on behalf of the Gran Canaria Tourist Office to promote the tourist”
Unfortunately a lot of consumers know now that it isn’t just a case of picking up the prize and after hours of sitting through sales pitches a lot of people ended up signing an agreement for Voyager Travel / lifestyle Holidays without knowing what it was actually about..
On the Mindtimeshare blog we have also articles in English about British tourists who went through this and you can read this article on the following link: http://wp.me/p1kmoi-jK
