Country Vacations – is it a fraud?

: 139 + 0 + 1 = 140

Day before yesterday i received a call from the staff of country vacations saying that i am the lucky winner of a lucky draw and come and collect three gifts (one kitchen set of 6 glass bowls, a gift voucher worth Rs.25,000/- which can be utilized for getting the accommodation and pass to country club for one day) and come with my husband. Since my husband is abroad, i went with my neighboring couples to get the gifts and later realized that  it was not at all necessary to go with the spouse. It was held at the basement of the Country Club, in outer ring road, Bangalore. The staff said we have to attend a presentation for 1 hour and later the gifts can be collected. The so called presentation was a trap and i realized it only after reaching home. It is about country vacations and through that gaining a Country club life time membership. I fancied about the idea of getting a membership.

I spoke with my husband regarding this and he was not interested in this since the beginning. I thought of convincing him later on and made a small token of payment to block the offer. They offered me a set of lemonade as a compliment. After reading others experiences, i am bit confused.

I read the bitter experiences of of others in the web and realized that it is not wise to go ahead with the idea of joining the concept of country vacation. So be careful when you receive a call like this.

Wishing you all the best for not getting into the trap of Country Club’s Country Vacations.

    I also got call to come with family to collect prize, but I dropped after seeing reviews.

    Thanks for the detailed review, hope this will help lot of people.

    I have filled this coupon before hometown, marathahalli. Shopping malls should not entertain these kind of people and let their customers fall prey for these activities.

  • parth

  • Shital

  • Survivor of Country Vacations

    Hi everyone,

    I am a survivor of CV. My post might help people who have paid so much & never got any service in return.
    I went to CV in Bangalore with my husband. They had only called for all these foolish free gifts and we went there b’coz there office was just behind a famous mall we always wanted to see. I too used to feel proud that i never fall pray in hands of cheats of such hotel memberships but i must give cheers to these sales executives that taking out money from me was like a cakewalk for them. And i became a victim for Rs.1,00,000/-

    We were informed about so many benefits after taking a LIFETIME membership. Upon my asking how many years is lifetime they said 25 years but after every 5 years we will get a call to upgrade it “to a better package”. I said is that a catch,’ wat if we don’t want’, They said don’t upgrade then,your normal lifetime membership will run. This was a very clear conversation. we fell into their sweet behavior & did not take any of their verbal promises in writing, giving them all the trust we agreed to pay from credit card for 18 months EMI. And after coming back home we found after 5 years the membership ends. If you want to use further u need to pay the price of that particular year. AND THE MAIN QUESTION WAS IF YOU ARE ABLE TO USE THE MEMBERSHIP AT ALL IN THE 5 YEARS.

    *******BEWARE********* They made us sign a 100 rupee stamp paper agreement which we later found to be a one sided document only to serve their profit interest. It has been prepared for post sales purposes because they will never give u any service, they might give you some letters or free coupons when you go to their office to fight for ur rights. Do read full post to follow procedure of disputing the transaction.

    On very next day we asked for E-mails of all the verbal promises not mentioned in their Deal, they kept giving us ambiguous mails. By then we found so many reviews against them. We reached their office and we were not that shocked to see their different behavior, they showed us the way out and told us never to come back for cancellations. Their branch head who told us ‘he will call the police & throw us out’ if we ever came back for demand of cancellation. I was shattered, i cried whole night but then i got up from the paranoia and decided to teach them a lesson.

    in my extensive research, i found several victims as well as survivors, through them i found about All India Resort Development Association (AIRDA) group.
    I checked the link & found that Country club / country vacations is a member of the group and they have to follow the guidelines set by AIRDA (which they were not doing).

    The main code of ethic was COOLING-OFF period in which CV has to cancel the contract if we ask to cancel within 10 days of purchase. And they must mention the same in their contract.

    Extracted from this website with regard to cooling-off period:

    Cooling off period:-

    After a purchase has been made, AIRDA recommends a cooling-off period of 10 clear working days, during which customers have the option to revoke, rescind and make void ab initio, any sales agreement entered into.
    If the agreement is revoked by the buyer, the seller is committed to refund all payments made and return share certificates, title deeds or other documents handed over during signing up of sales agreement.

    *** So i found the main point to follow the cancellation – I decided to raise the issue that CV never mention this point in the contract which they should hence their contract is null & not valid to me as a customer. And i will fight with BANK to reverse the transaction and get money back from CV**** IT WORKED .. yayyyyy !! :)

    Procedure of disputing the transaction:

    1)First thing i did was wrote a cancellation mail with all the points proven incorrect and services which are verbally promised and are not mentioned on the contract. I prepared this mail mainly for my records & i never expected a reply. I did cc this mail to my bank customer service email id.

    2)Then i downloaded a dispute form of my Credit card Bank- ticked ‘others’ and wrote that canceling due to services not rendered. Note that all this was done in 2 working days time-frame of purchasing the membership. Banks needs the dispute forms within 7 days of transaction. I attached the cancellation mail which i sent to CV and wrote a letter to Bank in details of complete experience. The esteemed bank is HDFC bank. Pls Read full post to know how much they helped me unconditionally.

    3) I wrote mail to HDFC grievance cell with scan copy of dispute form. I got reply from bank to wait for 45-50 days time-frame to finish investigation. I was told to pay my EMIs as per the statement, which i had to do.

    In between these 50 days i was in touch with HDFC bank on phone, they gave me updates like CV has not replied as of yet which was a good thing. I was honest with the bank that i have signed a contract but bank should understand it is one sided and CV fooled us to sign it. The bank took the time it needed.
    AFter 50 days they made me fill a Progressive dispute form, they said it the highlest level of investigation. I had trust in HDFC for this, also i had no other option. Hence i paid 3 EMIs in teh period of investigation.

    The HDFC bank personnel called me 4 times in the instigation period. they had told me CV has a deadline to reply back by 15th August and HDFc will take finall call of verdict after that.

    And final call was received on 19th August that I won the case and investigation closed in my favor. They reversed the money paid by me and cancelled rest. The nightmare ended here.

    Now I am gonna go back to CV with their so called contract & gonna tear it in middle of their reception. And i am gona take media with me for this scene. Lets hope for the best. I hope every victim finds the right way to fight and win the game against the frauds, cheaters called country vacations.

  • rpchop

    Even in Bhubaneswar I got a call from a lady (Tel. 93372-15444, sms from Tel. 93387-97917) to come with wife / husband, they told Lucky draw from your purchases at THE WORLD, a mall at bhubaneswar. If Country Vacations is not a fraud, then why they take the name of a mall to sell their idea. Why don’t they directly inform what their offer is and what all gift one may get to attend the seminar??????

  • saju

    Hi all,

    The best thing you can do is just attend their boring class,collect all the free gifts(!) tell them your father/brother is already a member so they will not force you.They will give you a free holiday gift voucher.with that voucher you can book their any of the resort.with the voucher you can book 2N or 3N stay including all the meals with a nominal charge of Rs 2000 off season.

  • DL

    one of my friend has requested me to join with his membership for 7 days and 1 complimentary day, so he decided to take 3 friends instead of family member to visit Bandipur to watch wild life for 2 days and then to go to Kodaikanal and spend balance 2 days as 8 night could be shared by two room, I also visited CV Colombo office and they agreed to arrange Bandipur and Manali then they had syggested above itenarary, and sales team advisec us membership can apply only for family members and not amoung friends, but later my firend had got consent as I guess, however going by above complaints, I am bit scared that we would get cheapted and it would be better for us to stay in an althernative hotel in tourist attraction area rather than using his facilities for membership paying Rs 2000 per person for 4 days.

    Pls advise us before we get into trouble with so called compliments and vouchers, following is his mail came to me

    And this offer was only after confirming my designation & annual salary – wonder how and from where they got this data?

    So….Stay away folks.. these are the numbers: 080-32568564/ 9535884287 and below is the address that you will be communicated to collect the gifts:

    Me and my husband have been to such meeting (torture) yesterday. So the wound is very fresh. they ate about 3 hours of our time and still didn’t leave us as we were not ready to pay for any of their bull Sh** plans..

    It goes like this..

    My husband got many calls after which he decided to give a try, initially they didn’t mention anything about country vacation. Just mentioned that we won 25K work travel coupons. They gave some nearest landmark and asked us to call from there to know the exact location. We planned on going to see whats that and return in 1 hr. When we reached the landmark and called then they told that its in Country Club. We got the picture clear by now. We couldn’t browse reviews as wifi was not available. Anyways we went there, i was ok to spend 30 min- 1 hr.

    As soon as the CV person explained about the plans and payment options, I decided that we will not pay for any plan, but my husband said we are here so lets listen to the details, offers and additional offers ;P if you know what i mean. You will if you have already been to such meeting.

    there was a plan for 30 years, with free 150 sq yards plot and we have to pay 2.45L +50K for registration. When i said that i am a homemaker and paying 3.5 is heavy on my husbands pocket, he said free emi option is available, even then i acted like its not possible, he said he will give us a free trip to Andaman for a week(this topic came up earlier when discussing places of interest and we mentioned that we are planning to go to Andaman)

    wow free trip to andaman, that is travel, accommodation, pick.drop, sightseeing, breakfast/dinner.this was too much of an offer to be true.

    Though we don’t believe all this we still acted like we are interested in the plan but the amount is bit too much.
    point to be noted -each time when we act as if not convinced, this guy goes to his manager and comes back in a minute.
    This time the cv guy gave us another bumper offer saying just pay 2L total instead of 3.45L mentioned above and we will still get all the perks- 150 sq yds plot, trip to Andaman, free EMI.. :D

    After all this my husband still stuck to his point saying he needs 1day time. For which they said its no way possible and out of 116 offers, 115 are already filled and this is the last offer available. Then we said ok don’t block that for us is someone else is interested give them else we will see about this tomorrow.

    We had to fill a review sheet before we leave which was delayed for 30 more minutes by them, meanwhile again trying to convince us. We said No… and just before we leave they said they will call tomorrow :D.
    We came home and browsed for CV reviews….. and were shocked, surprised, felt happy seeing all the complaints about cv. Shocked and surprised seeing such a huge negative response… felt happy for not paying/ falling for them.

    Even if they call today.. our answer is a Big No…………

    All people out there save your time and money, don’t fall for these guys paying them your hard earned money.
    At the end of the day… though we feel bad for all the time we wasted.. we are happy that we din’t pay a penny to CV.

      Don,t you even think to go. They will surely trap you once you go there. So be intelligent and do not even dare to visit thses buggers

  • vaibs

    Dear Subhojit,
    I would say don’t go even for the presentation . it’s a waste of time. But even if you attend their so called presentation… never ever take the membership… I myself a member of country club and regretting my decision big time.. not sure, how can i get my money back…. every day and night i regret my decision.. it’s kind of depression now.. however trying to get over it now.. But when ever i plan my holiday or decide to take some time off from the work.. i need to fight with this guy.. and then decide to book my hotels and destinations on my own.. this is the level of torture i need to bear for the next 10 Yrs.. Until it’s membership expires..

    • Survivor of CV

      Get hold of your banker (credit/debit) which you have used for making the payment File a dispute and let them investigate. You will certainly get your money back.
      I got it the same way.

  • subhojit rauth

    hey today i got a call from country vacation n they said tht u win a lucky draw. they told tht u win one laptop,2 dinner set,gift vouchers of 25,000 !! i should go or not ? pls reply!

  • chinna

    Thanks a lot guys, I was supposed to attend such presentation on 22 Feb 13 at Durgapur. Saved my time and money after going through these reviews.

  • ajit pal

    Ajit Pal

    i also received a call from country club , that i win the lucky draw. but i realize that this is totally fraud…..

  • Mohammad Zaman

    I had a bitter experience of more than a year getting my money refunded. I had paid the full amount of UAE Dirham 22,000(approx Rs.3 lacs). Upon paying the money I came to know the hidden clauses which were never apprised to me. Atlast I decided to cancell my membership and gave them a notice within 4 days of taking the membership. Thereafter I kept following them for my refund for more than 10 months through several e-mails to all from their CEO in Indian to the customer service manager in Dubai but all in vain. Atlast I approached the Economic Department (Comsumer department) of Dubai who took up my case and resolved the matter to get all my money refunded within 2-1/2 months without a single penny being charged by them for their services. What I understand from this horrific experience that if they were really honest they could have refunded my money when I cancelled my membership but no they never responded to my calls or e-mails.

    Guys be careful they are not honest. In case you you are in trap in UAE inform them in writing within 1 week for cancellation of taking the membership as per UAE law and you will surely get your money refunded.

    • Imran

      Plz put ur mob no ,,,, want to talk to u ….

    • Mohammad Zaman

      I humbly suggest you not to visit them. They are 100% fraud, they will show all the greenery now and later on you will curse them. I was in the trap but fortunately I came out of this trap and got my money refunded.

  • Ram manohar

    My self and my family also experienced same scenario,we also got call from country vacations muscat branch.sales executive who explained us about their membership convinced us to take the membership,after long discussion we decided to take and we paid money through my card ,they gave some additional discount also…Within 3 month they reserved a 2nights stay in country club dubai hotel and we had one of the memorable trip in our life.It was well organized and well executed holiday,me and my family really enjoyed it …Nexr summer vacation i visited bandipur also its also an awesome one…Why i wrote this means i noticed lot of negative comments from people,simply my motto was to say people was first you people just use holiday after that comment…..

    Thanks to all of you written above.

  • chinnakkadai

    They give their business presentation and give us a choice (yes/no).

  • Sameer

    This is not a fraud, when they invite us for a seminar on their services.

    I attended two such seminars for two different companies and chose one that attracted me the most.
    Both companies gifted me as promised.

    • nams

      I also got call from country vaccation, i have filled up the form in infinity mall n i got selected but after the site review i came to know everything is fraud, so that i saved my valuable time n i dont want cheap gifts from them, may be the gift value is not more than 100 rs. but we are paying that money for transportation, any body is looking for gift, go to the dollar shop n purchase it for your self, that is my advice…… be aware from this type of calls :)have a fun n njoy that time with ur family :)

  • sALMAN

    My sister also got call…..she and her husbend decided to going on 24th dec ….. I told them to check froud. but they are all fixed any Idea from your side…..



  • Nishita

    Hi All,Please do not ever ever opt for Country Vacations. They are fraud company. We were duped of around 2 Lakhs. It was our hard earned money. What irritates me most is no body is taking any step against them not even me for that matter. If nothing is done they will dupe more and more people.Regards,Nishita

  • vasudha

    thanks a ton for saving my time, money and hassle… i have an appointment with their executive tomorrow and since i am not going now someone from country vacations would call me.. i would use the opportunity to give this guy my piece of mind… again thanks:)

    • Venu

      Even I did receive a call from CV (in Changanacherry, Kerala) today. They have asked me to come over with my wife to collect a gift voucher for a free holiday for 4 people at any of their various destinations which include Malaysia, Thailand etc. Validity is for one year. When I asked repeatedly, the lady named Renji, repeatedly assured me that there were absolutely no other conditions, other than that we have to sit through their presentation. Sounds very attractive ??????

  • Ritwick

    the above mentioned incidence happened in Ahmedabad, Satellite STAR BAZAR………

  • Ritwick

    Dear AllTwo days back I had filled a Lucky Draw coupon at STAR BAZAR (a TATA Enterprize),I got a call from Country Vacations that I ve won 25000/- tour package and a cutlery set.I went there in the evening and they asked me to attend a 90 mins presentation.At first I was bit impressed but later i have to encounter a series of questions by one of the Idiotic staff member who tried to reveal my personal life which was very embarrassing and created a doubt in my mind as there was zero presentation in that half an hour time…….I rushed out of the office as i found it very fake and unreliable……even the TATA enterprise should not entertain and motivate such fake company’s marketing in their premises…..I request u all not to get carried away with such tempting offers which do not exist…….Take care……..

  • Nikil

    Thanks For sharing your opinions people !Bloody ***Holes called me and said the same thing today……I aint going there now….

  • Tanu

    I have taken a membership with loads of promises & phone calls. I infect made My friends & relatives a member too. I am from Kolkata & my main interest was local clubbing & not free land or holidays. But as the executives from Country club keep on promising me different things, i didn’t become member until I saw in newspaper an ad that Country Club is opening a beautiful clubbing place CK 27 in kolkata too. I become member along with my friends & relatives, they keep on promising since 2008 beginning that soon club is coming up but it didn’t come. When asking the final date they said on Diwali 2008 then Durga Pooja 2008 then New Year eve. When I asked to return my money or else I will go to court then finally executive Mr. Manoj Singh his head Mr. Gajendra Singh & Abjit Pandey promised June 2009 & then the club would be fully operational. Now after June 2009 also they are unable to keep promise & asking few more months without shame. I need my money back or else I will go to consumer court & start a fight against these guys in Kolkata media to make people aware of their frauds.

    Hi All,Yesterday I got a call from C V international (near Forum mall). The person asked me to collect 5000Rs kitchen set and 25000 holiday package, but I have to attend their 1 hour presentation. I was suspicious, but did not find any info about C V international in the net. Now I realise it’s nothing but Country Vacations. So everyone, please beware of their cheating methods

    • jayant kumar jha (@jayantjha6)

  • Sudhakar

    Hi all,I too got a call (3 months before) and i went there with my wife and they gave an hour class about country vacations and insisted us to avail any one of the offer they explained in the class and i too got pleased with their talk and many offers they are providing but i didnt pay anything that time. Came outside of the place and enquired about that with friends circle and came to know that it is a cheating company. Also they said that we won kitchen set and after classes over and i said that will decide and come back to avail these offer, they didnt gave kitchen set to me and instead of that they said that kitchen set is not available now and will send through postal. That time itself i got doubt about the company. So please dont go to their place if u got a call…..

  • Babu

    hello deari got call in the month of april 2010 from country vacation club (Gurgaon office) that you won two gifts one is kitchenware another rs 25000 holiday package. they asked to come with your wife and collect the same.when we went there they tried to convence us to join CV that day. but i said that i am not with sufficient fund. i will join lateron . then thay said this offer is for today if u don’t have sufficient money. just book with 10000/- and pay rest of money in installment. then after discussing with my wife we make our mind to avoid this . we refused. we were given a kitchenware worth rs just 50/- only. i thought we wasted our 2-3 hours just for gift of 50 i want to say to just avoid these type of offers.have a nice timeBabu, Gurgaon
