Trip Report BEWARE of Grand Circle Travel SCAMS!!!

Jump to last reply

Grand Circle Travel (GCT) seems to play a few nasty games, and cheating its customers!!!

1. When flying on a commercial airline, booked through GCT, they negotiate a deal (to increase their profit margin) which PRECLUDES the traveler from getting FREQUENT FLYER credits!!

Moreover, GCT has a ploy to award a small number of point i.e. around 5% of the total mileage, in order to elude 'getting caught'. After all, most people (we did) see frequent flyer credit and don't bother to check how many points they actually received!!!

2. Forced (credit card charge) for tipping!!!

Upon boarding the Yangtze river cruise boat, we were informed that our credit cards will be charged a flat fee of $150.oo each for tipping. We protested that we need to experience the service first, then determine how much to tip (more or less) but they INSISTED!!!


NASTY, and GREEDY !!!!

GCT is not a choice we will ever make, or recommend.
