Travelling through China with the Universal Travel Group: fly from Beijing to Yichang – pick up your tickets at Shenzhen airport! Last, you can package your flight, hotel, and rental car all in one to save yourself money. This is a great way for 2 to 4 people to travel because you will get a reduces rate on the hotel, the airfare, and a bit of a discount on the rental car. I was able to travel with one other person for 5 days and 4 nights from Chicago to Orlando for about $350 per person. This included our 4 star resort hotel, our flight on Northwest with one stop each way, and our rental car, which was a nice 2008 model.
The company in its stock-promotion spiel says that it allows for convenient online payments” but there was no mechanism here for making any payment. In this day-and-age it is not difficult to take PayPal. That payment option can be set up very quickly.
What need is there for such a big accounts receivables line? In this sort of business, the customer usually pays upfront and cash payment can’t make up $20 million. There must be a lot of tours going on! Wotif has receivables of $5.2 million, and it presumably does a lot more business in terms of total transaction value (TTV).
The phone was answered in Cantonese. This company purports to be a nation-wide service and my friend expected a conversation in Mandarin. When my friend was talking in Mandarin the conversation changed. If this were a national company (as it purports to be) it would have answered in Mandarin.
Great investigative work. The company actually removed the option to pick up at the airport. The other two options remain. I tried many of the things you tried ( booking a flight giving an error), same image on all international hotels, blank page for international hotels ( not even the name shows up), maps etc.
