I got a pop up on computer telling me i had won £ 1,101 towards holiday in Florida! Wow. So i called the number and listened for around half an hour to the sales speak, which was very practised and persuasive. The crunch came at the end of the call when i was asked for my credit card details to pay just £ 299 per person (two of us) to guarantee the offer and i would be given 12 months in which to take advantage and book a holiday. I was told that i would have to pay for flights to Orlando from the UK. All information was clear and well put over but when i asked if i could check with my husband before giving card details i was told i had to pay there and then or offer would be withdrawn. Then i asked if i paid and then decided after discussion with my husband that we didnt want it would i get a full refund. I was passed to a "Supervisor" who started to try and convince me again what a great deal it was, but as soon as i asked again about the full refund i was told the legal stuff about if the holiday was not as described then i would be but if we just decided we did not want it then there was no way back - just a swap. When i then said in that case i would leave it i was given very short shrift!!
There is no cooling off period at all which i thought was a legal requirement of selling now - so these people should be shut down straight away.
Then i reviewed the other reviews here and breathed one massive sigh of relief!
