The Realistix Browser DVD is not an unknown product to us, and those who read the blog on a regular basis. We posted an article about this strange product sold by another marketer called Intelligent Software Solutions and there are many comments posted from disappointed consumers.
We have now heard of a new company in Tenerife, Gold crown Services or simply GCS who is also selling this same product, the Realistix Browser.
The approach is through OPC’s on the streets of Tenerife, and people are made to believe they have won the main prize on a scratch card and in order to pick this up, they need to go around the GCS offices and go through a 90-minute presentation.
Once at the GCS offices, the 90 minutes quickly turn out to be 4 to 5 hours where the consumer is explained about the wonderful world of the Realistix Browser.
The DVD from the Realistix Browser supposedly provides over a 65% discount on holiday accommodation and travel, without ever using a travel agent again and all this in 4 and 5 star accommodation and cruises.
Gold Crown Services GCS claims to be directly connected to Wyndham, which is not true.
The price of this DVD is around the £5000 and Gold Crown Services takes a deposit on the day.
Once the consumer is convinced they are taken to another office where the paperwork is signed, and then an employee hands over the box containing the DVD. In order to make sure it is all working correctly, register the software and explain the basics, the employee from GCS opens the box.
As the box is sealed, there is no other way to do this then by breaking the seal.
But what most consumer do not know or are not made aware of, is that it mentions clearly in the paperwork that once the seal is broken, there is no possibility to return the DVD and cancel. Most consumers also receive the letter included in the paperwork, which mentions that they opened the box “out of free will”.
In the pack there is a brochure with all nicely made up comparisons of prices, with names of hotels and flight information and then a price next to it stating that this is the discounted price from Realistix. This brochure does not contain any proof that these prices were as such, and where they have been taken from.
Those who pay the full balance and try out the DVD from Realistix at home, quickly realize that there is no such thing as discounted holiday accommodation or discount on flights with Easy-Jet and Ryan Air.
Together with the DVD the consumer also received vouchers for “free” weeks stays and a free cruise holiday.
The “free” week accommodation has to be booked through a company called Blue Wave travel and most probably will be in timeshare resorts in Mainland Spain and Canary Islands where the consumer will be obligated to go through another presentation!
They free cruise is a cruise holiday that needs to be booked through an American company. This company charges $75 per person registration fee before even trying to book. Then the consumer has the obligation to book their flights through this cruise company, which turns out to be at rates that double or triple the ones you can find on the Internet.
We certainly recommend being cautious with the above company and thinking twice before purchasing the DVD.
If you have been through a presentation from Gold Crown services GCS in Tenerife about the Realistix browser, we would like to hear from you.
