Platinum One Destinations (P1D) Problems Persist
Persistent problems continue to plague the potential launch of the Platinum One Destinations (P1D) home based travel business. Members say abandonment was threatened, travel options are limited and overpriced, and question the qualifications of those dividing up the money.
Many former members of the Coastal Synergy Group say they felt forced to move to Platinum One Destinations (P1D). They felt they risked no longer getting support of their up lines if they didn’t make the move. As these members try to test the new Platinum One Destinations (P1D) product line, they have been very disappointed with the pricing and lack of choice the memberships offer. Members who actually try to use the product are not finding the best travel deals with Platinum One Destinations (P1D) and are digging out Coastal Vacations membership packages they had filed away at the beginning of the year.
Members of Platinum One Destinations (P1D) seemed to be sold on the idea that booking with the up-start home based travel business would be easier than using some of the components of the Coastal Vacations membership packages. One Platinum One Destinations (P1D) member from Texas reported on the condition of anonymity that prices for one trip she was planning were more than double what she was able to book over the phone with her Coastal Vacations membership. After being quoted a rate of $135 a night with Platinum One Destinations (P1D), the member was able to book 2 rooms at a comparable hotel through Coastal Vacations at much lower rates with just one phone call. Her room with a king size bed was $59 and she also booked a room with a queen size bed for a friend at $49.
Travel expert Dean Marino reports, “While many people are starting home based travel businesses because of the huge growth and income potential, most of those people are not frequent travelers and don’t have a clue about what to look for and what will sell. They’re investing big money and flying blind with no knowledge of the travel industry and then they wonder why they can’t get anyone to buy travel memberships that sell for as much as $15,000.”
Others have voiced ethical issues concerning Platinum One Destinations (P1D) when they used business owner testimonials on marketing websites. The problem was that the testimonials from members on the websites reported earnings and success stories from their experience with a stable, time tested home based business, not the brand new Platinum One Destinations (P1D) business they are trying to push.
The distribution of funds is another potential problem for Platinum One Destinations (P1D). Ethical concerns as well as the qualifications of those distributing the funds under the Platinum One Destinations (P1D) complex pay plan have been questioned by members as well as those who had considered starting a Platinum One Destinations (P1D) home based business. Home based business experts see the potential for problems because many new startups have failed still owing money to members.
Those who had considered Platinum One Destinations (P1D) memberships expressed disappointment when they sampled the choices and prices through www.nettrav.com . Members are told they can earn commissions when customers book at their Net Trav sites, but those who took the time to check that out were not impressed. Marino explained, after some people called me about it, I checked it out myself. When I tried to book hotels in several major U S cities, the site gave me less than 15 hotel choices and the prices were not what I would consider a deal. I immediately checked some major discount travel websites for the same cities and found better bargains and over 100 more hotels to choose from.
The untested and much maligned Platinum One Destinations (P1D) struggles to muster some respect from the home based business community. Time tested home based travel businesses flourish in today’s expanding market.
