SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A discount travel company new to Savannah has some customers questioning their marketing strategy.
WTOC's Lynda Figueredo followed one skeptical customer to the business called the Vacation Station, after they received a letter saying they had qualified for two free airline tickets.
It was a deal they thought was too good to be true. That is why the Shurlings invited WTOC to tag along with them to go and pick up the airline tickets.
Angel and Gary Shurling went to Vacation Station last week after being told they would receive two roundtrip airline tickets to anywhere in the country. The Shurlings were told over the phone that they were supposed to be hearing about a new airline coming to town. After sitting through a 45-minute pitch, they left with two vouchers from a third-party company that requests taxes and fees in order to release the plane tickets.
WTOC was able to get some more information from the marketing director about Vacation Station's marketing strategy.
On The News at 6, Lynda Figueredo will explore whether the deal is too good to be true. Vacation Station will also explain their style of marketing.
