GULF GATE TOURISM SCAM

GULF GATE TOURISM SCAM

By asifbhanwadia

This is a scam. Dont fall in to this trap.

I was invited for a free gift and a dream travel package. I am a traveller and travel to different countries every year. I was very much interested for the travel package.

I was offered a package of 35 days stay at 4 or 5 star hotel worldwide for QR 12,000. In a year maximum number of days we can use was 10 days. Big Hotel brands situated around the world like Marriott, hilton, and many more were a part of their package. I got so eager to buy but though of negotiating a bit. When i asked for discount (asked only once) the package was straight away reduced to QR 9,000 froom QR 12,000. Thats when i though that something wass fishy. No travel company would negotiate to such extent. Upon further negotiation it was reduced to QR 8,000.

Further more negotiation led the the package to be reduced at QR 7,000 and that too with extra nights and benefits. Can you imagine a travel company offering a package of 12,000 and then reducing it to 7,000 further adding extra nights and benefit. LOL!....

It reminded me of street vendors in mumbai who offers a product at high price but reduces the price to sell it based on the customer.

So i was finally offered 40 days stay in a 4 or 5 star hotel (worldwide) for QR 7,000 plus 5 days free stay gift voucher at 4 or 5 star hotel in bangkok.

Just imagine booking a disneyland hotel (paris) for just 1 day will cost you around USD 1,000 which is approx QR 3,650. And they are offering disneyland hotels and such other 4 to 5 star hotel worldwide.

I understood that this is a scam. i googled about them and found that someone has already posted about them on Qatar living. I further investigated. I emailed them for their company docs and found that the company had just started in January 2019. They said that they were operating in Qatar since many years and were only offering packages to corporate clients like QP, Qatar airways. I cheked with my friends working in QP HR and few Qatar airways empolyees. They said they even havent heard about such company.

It might be true that few customers have already used their few days out of the total 35 or 40 days package stay at a 4 or 5 star hotel. However very soon this company might not exist once their motive or target is achieved. All the money and the remaning or all days of the package will be gone......

Stay alert and share it to save others from such scams.
