I went through my bank statement and saw Travel Bug and the number given was for Bio Extenze. There is no way i can track what number this "Travel Bug" goes to. I didn't authorize anything to this company and they have been taking 8.95 out of my bank account every 3 weeks and they keep doing it. I found the number and canceled whatever it was that they did with my bank account to refund my money; still nothing returned to my account as of today they took out another 8.95 within a week.

I am very Angry!!!

Monetary Loss: $50.

we just has a call, don't recall the name of the company but it was for accomodation at Mainsail Caloundra.

They wanted a $99 deposit and then it would be $250 for 4 people for two nights.

My husband nearly fell for it! they were so convincing and sounded Australian.

I had this vague recollection of a holiday scam so told him to hang up. Thank you for this website. It is sad to see that these people are still at work and have not been caught yet. I can only kick myself for not getting their details and reporting them with the ombudsman or ACCC

Travel bug is definitely a scam. I can't believe i fell for their sales person.

I thought i would be saving money with a $199 voucher to Caloundra only to find the Caloundra accommodation had closed down and the rest of their places were rubbish and the vouchers save you nothing.

I wish there was a way i could get my money back, i have rung and the sales people are very rude and just keep refering me to their website, no help at all...at a loss. Has anyone hasd success getting money back?

Travelbug is jus a load of rubbish. They tricked us into buying this $79.00 package.

We thought we were buying one package but they charged us for two packages. We are not sure if we ever will use any of those vouchers simply because the vouchers literally do not save anything at all.

This is all a big scam. I am going to consumer court.

BTW, the only way these people could possibly get good comments is if they are doing it themselves. So what happens is , the sales reps, go onto these websites and write good comments.

THEY ARE ARE BIG BIG SCAM. so not go with them. they are absolutely a load of rubbish. I called so many times to cancel and they kept trying to convince me not to.

the last deal that was made was that i would call them if i didnt want to cancel. when i called they said that it was too late and the girl that I was dealing with turned into a monster.

Who cares about customer sevice when you have their money. BTW these people dont even understand their own products.

Travel Bug Holidays is a SCAM. Their offers are more expensive than when you book individually from sites like wotif.com.

+ Travel Bug holidays literally steals 200 bucks off you for their "money-saving-deal" when providing no deal at all. For example, on their site they have a deal 2-for-1, where you pay for 1 night in a hotel and stay for 2.

But the price for the first night is the double of what you'd pay on wotif.com (= there's no free night.) They also have a deal "Pay for food, stay for free" but they don't tell you that you have to pay a certain amount (usually over 100 AUD) for your meal at all them hotels. All this means that: 1) you don't save a cent when staying in the hotels on their list

2) you pay Travel bug holidays 200 dollars for calling you.

Travel bug holidays are a scam, I'm so sorry I believed them and fell for it.Total waste of money!!! It is cheaper to book direct with the hotels. It is also almost impossible to speak to their staff too, incredibly frustrating.

do not trust indians calling you to buy anything over the phone, this isn't the first time a scam like this is happening, I just want to know if there is a way we can complain about them and see them behind bars, they're making money from cheating innocent people, it is the same as a robbery, these people need to be punished. :(

Every *** who s not able to think of his own and who is idiotic would refer to life hacker website.. because he does not have sense to make is own decision..

wat iff life hackers s a scam.. then wat ever u did will be all bolls… just because ppl want too comment they comment.. only jobless ppl do that ….. and ppl who are not able to afford to use the deals we provide will comment..

because they are so dumb and get so excited before telling wat the offer is.. all are human beigns … tell one person who has not made a mistake.. even f there is a site to comment about personal comments .. then we will know everyones true colours..

this msg s 4 idiots.. who jst waN TO WATSE TIME SPOILING SOME BODY ELSE S NAME.. ..

LEARN TO THINK OFF UR OWN.. AND LIVE FOR YOURSELF AND NOT FOR OTHERS… GOOD BYE
