Primo Vacations Reviews – Legit or Scam?

Primo VacationsPrimo Vacations is a throwback to the old days of travel clubs, when you would attend an informational meeting in the hopes of receiving a free cruise.  While drinking mediocre coffee out of tiny Styrofoam cups, you would watch a slideshow of all the world’s glorious destinations, and hear promises of how you could be there yourself for dirt cheap prices – once you join the club.

Travel clubs earned terrible reputations because once you signed up for the club (and paid lots of money to do so), any time you actually tried to book a discounted vacation with your club, your request was inevitably denied.  There was a laundry list of reasons they could – and did – give you, but the long and short of it was that you almost never saw a vacation, much less a free cruise.

Primo Vacations is interesting because they merge the concept of a travel club with a work at home business opportunity.  Apparently your membership fee of $697 not only pays your way into the travel club, but it also gives you the opportunity to sell travel club memberships to others.  For each membership to Primo Vacations that you sell, you receive $500.

So is Primo Vacations a Scam?

Actually, Primo Vacations has the potential to be two scams.  First of all, as a vacation club, there doesn’t seem to be any evidence showing that Primo is different than the old school clubs where you paid your money and received excuses instead of plane tickets.  I have not been able to find a single person who says they actually use Primo Vacations for travel purposes other than the people who are trying to sell you memberships to Primo Vacations.

Second, as a home business opportunity they are a direct sales company.  Direct sales generally means that you are responsible for attracting clients and closing the sales.  Primo Vacations takes the closing out of the equation – once you attract the clients, they claim to basically take the work off your hands and have the sales team follow up and close your sales for you.  Also, for $39.99 a month, Primo Vacations will create a website for you to attract those clients.

And, once that sale is closed at the price of $697, $500 of that price goes to you and $197 goes to the company. Now, as a 1 Up organization, your first $500 will actually go the person that recruited you.  But, after that, all your consequent sales go in your pocket.

Here’s the problem.  Unless Primo Vacations is actually, truly arranging discount vacations for people, then they have a silhouette of a potential pyramid scheme.  A pyramid scheme is when a company claims to be selling a product in a network marketing fashion, where you are rewarded for recruiting in addition to selling the product, but the truth is there is no real product – the only money changing hands is from people being recruited.  I would approach with caution.

  • There is a product - the vacation membership. What can be debated is whether or not the membership has value at its price-point.

    From what I understand, you only make commission from the selling of products, not the recruiting of people.
  • Primo Vacations and especially David Pollock are scammers and master scam artists. Avoid ANY travel club. Not worth it, goto a real registered travel agent in your area, support your local business don't throw your money away to scammers.
  • I'm blown away with the Primo Vacations Club! In my opinion, it's the best travel club on the planet.

    I own a membership personally, and have many happy customers. I also know Rob Hannley, the CEO, personally & can tell you he's a principled man filled with integrity.

    I couldn't be happier. Thank you Rob for putting together such a great travel club! The savings are astounding!
  • I Purchased a travel membership from Primovacations for $697 dollars as I believed them to be a reputable company. I never ever managed to access a vacation during all the time I was allowed access to the site, due to the travel desk's non existent customer service. I was shocked to read allegations in scam sites all over the internet regarding D Pollack who is Rob Hannley's travel business associate.

    In view of the Primo vacations travel desk's appalling service towards me I asked D Pollack if the allegations were true about him as I didn't wish to be associated with him or Primo if they were. It was my right as a consumer and the responsible thing for me to do in the circumstances.

    I obviously hit a raw nerve as he banned me from the site and threatened to sue me. In spite of the allegations having been made by countless others and not myself!

    I'm most disappointed in Rob Hannley the CEO of Primovacations as he didnt care about me as a paying member and backed Pollack instead. Hannley portrays himself as a devout christian ? How pious and hypocritical of him .
