Buyer Beware: Tips from New York Guest’s CEO

For some people, the most important thing about a trip is to ‘get a deal’; to find something that is so good you have to tell all your friends. While there are a lot of great deals out there, and New York Guest is able to offer many using our local resources, there is something important to keep in mind when you’re searching for travel deals on the internet: if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

Here is a very recent  story- a west coast business acquaintance of mine wanted to book a week-long stay in NY and thought she found a ‘great deal’ at $99 per night for a two bedroom, well furnished apartment in a very popular part of the City. We told her that the ‘rentals at this price didn’t make sense; it was too good to be true. After a few days and some diligence, she found out that the apartment didn’t exist and never was available. She also told me at her payment was to be sent to a woman in Ohio. When the Ohio woman was contacted, she said that the money was to be sent to Nigeria.

Had she gone forward a few things would have happened:

  • They would have arrived in NY and found no accommodations
  • They would have scrambled and paid a great deal for last minute rooms; and possibly had to stay in New Jersey or upstate
  • They would have lost their deposit
  • They would have had their bank account emptied and ended up with years of identity theft problems

When booking your vacation – reputation DOES matter. New York Guest helps thousands of NYC visitors every year to get a great deal that is backed by a trustworthy guarantee. It’s your money and your vacation – make sure that it is well spent!
