What are your opinions with QVC offering travel? Interesting concept. Surprised they're dedicating an entire hour to it...hummmmm

I just posted a thread, too.


I don't get it.

I remember years ago they had these odd shows like this. I think they were selling a car once and you could order a brochure or something.

And 12000 people have ordered this free brochure with free S&H.

How many ordered it just because it was free?

It has caught my interest. My only concern is that they have mentioned several times that this is a luxury tour group. That causes me concern when it comes to pricing. However, I think I am going to order one since it's free and their is nothing to loose to at least check it out.

Trafalgar and Parrillo are expensive.

. Really? So this isn't a new concept....interesting. I would think stuff like this would present during that 'black-out at Christmas' time. If this is successful, I could see them creating a niche for services, as well as products. Selling your gold, life insurance, investment services....things of that sort. An hour-long infomercial?

Trafalgar Tours aren't cheap, but they aren't luxury. They use centrally-located hotels and as they are talking about have several experiences included, so that adds up. It's a great value - if you add up the components you can't recreate it at that price. But they aren't Abercrombie & Kent.

If you want an escorted tour, they do a great job. They sell their tours in other English-speaking countries so you will have not just Americans and Canadians but people from Ireland, the UK, Australia, or South Africa which just adds another dimension to the tour.

Essentials: Book through a professional travel agent, and buy travel protection.
