Vacation Station: Caribbean Flights

"The majority of our flying is from Northern Virginia and into the Caribbean," Dolber said. "We go to the Bahamas a lot; the Turks and Caicos; Cayman Islands."

He is a veteran traveler, but when his wife mentioned casually that there was a Vacation Station in town, he said "OK. What’s that?"plane cockpit

It wasn’t long before he found out not only "what" Vacation Station is but how much he could save by becoming a member. He learned firsthand that the savings can be considerable.

"How we’ve used Vacation Station is primarily through my business. I’m a corporate pilot, and I’m away from home a fair amount," Dolber said. "That means hotels, rental cars and things like that, and Vacation Station gives you a rebate off the basic rack rate."

Dolber went on to say that Vacation Station is ideal for those who do a fair amount of traveling. The Dolbers thought that a membership would work well for them, although they didn’t guess how much it ultimately would save them.

"We bought a membership in June 2009," he said. "By February 2010, I had received my purchase price back from the receipts I had submitted up to that time."

Since then, the Dolbers have continued to travel and submit receipts.

"I’m considerably ahead now," Dolber said. "Truthfully, it is about a 90-percent return on my investment. I wish my stock market portfolio did that."

Even though the seminar the Dolbers attended was impressive, they were skeptical about a plan that sounded too good to be true.

"One thing I was concerned with was their reputation because I had never heard of them. I did a check and found they were fine," he said.

Joining Vacation Station has allowed the Dolbers to visit new places in addition to his many business-related trips.

"My wife and I always wanted to take a cruise, but we didn’t have the opportunity until this year," Dolber said. "We left from Florida and went to Belize, Mexico and the Cayman Islands."

"The stateroom had a really nice balcony," he continued. "The rack rate was $3,400. When we got back, I submitted the receipt to Vacation Station and they sent me a check for $1,000."

About Vacation Station’s customer service, Dolber said, "They are great." Would he recommend Vacation Station? Absolutely, he said.

"If you do a fair amount of traveling, it works out pretty well," he concluded.
