Like your mama always told you, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. There is no such thing as a free lunch or a free honeymoon. Many of these “free” honeymoon certificates are questionable at best. Anytime a vendor has no website, won’t take a credit card, insists that you only pay by money order or wire, this is a huge red flag. They set up these guide lines so that there is no way for you to get a refund. If someone tells you that you can instantly receive travel agent discounts by paying a fee this is a big red flag as well.
We are amazed that the bridal show organizers continue to allow these companies to participate. If you’ve been the victim of one of these scams please let the bridal show and your local attorney general know. The bridal boards and BBB websites are filled with horror stories from brides that thought they were getting a free honeymoon. Don’t let it happen to you.
