No wonder Club Med is going out of business! Wake-up travel industry!

Jump to last reply

I saw what appeared to be good rates at Club Med and called to inquire. I was told that my 12 year old would have to pay the same as the adults, but not my 9 year old. I told the agent that I would not pay an adult rate for my son and I thought that Club Med was hurting for business, so wouldn't they let him pay the childs rate? No. Oh well, there are plenty of other all-inclusives who will. In fact, I've got a trip to Costa Rica on hold now that is doing even better than a child's rate, they are letting 12 and under kids stay FREE!

No wonder Club Med is going out of business. I just can't believe how stupid some of these "businesses" are. It makes you wonder who's running the show. I know there was a related thread to this recently and I am hoping people from the resort industry read this forum. They should know that they are losing out on much-needed business by sticking to ridiculous policies. Wake up before you lose that huge family travel market. Remember travel industry, right now it's a buyers market!
