Next Vacay Reviews
About Next Vacay
Next Vacay, found online at NextVacay.com, is a new travel company and website which promises people access to the best possible airfare deals that will become available throughout the year.
How Does It Work?
According to the website, the creators of Next Vacay loved to travel and loved a good travel deal even more. But they understood that the amount of time and effort it took to hunt down the best value travel deals was exhausting, and when it didn’t always result in travel deals people wanted, they could become so discouraged they wouldn’t travel at all.
The creators of Next Vacay had what they believed to be a reliable system for finding these travel deals throughout the year, so they decided to create a website where they could share these deals with others.
To get started all you have to do is provide their site with the name of the nearest airport to you and their system will search multiple travel databases and systems and alert you by email whenever they find one. If you like the deal, you will book your flight directly with the airline.
Their website says that they have found deals including $300 tickets to India and $600 tickets to Barcelona, and their service includes domestic flights as well.
This company says that in order to become a Next Vacay member customers will be required to pay a $25 Annual Membership fee. This membership fee will get members an unlimited number of deals throughout the year and all brand new customers will automatically be given a free 30 day trial of this service so they can test out the types of deals they will receive for themselves and they can decide whether or not they want to remain members before they ever pay their first membership fee.
This company says that their membership comes with a 6 Month Money Back Guarantee, which states that if there is any reason that customers believe they did not get their money’s worth from this service, they are welcome to request their money back.
Unfortunately this company provides their customers with no set of legal Terms and Conditions at this time, making it difficult to know exactly how binding this policy is to this company.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by phone at 678-616-8657, by email at [email protected], or by using their website’s Live Chat feature whenever it is available.
Unfortunately at this time the only reviews available for Next Vacay appear to be from travel bloggers that are affiliates of this service, meaning that they receive some sort of payment or commission when their visitors sign up for this service. This makes it impossible to know how biased or unbiased these reviews might be.
In addition because this company does not provide their customers with any information about how their “system” actually works, customers do not know whether they will receive any better deals from this service than they would from Groupon Travel or another similar free service. And with no legal Terms, their Refund Policy is not guaranteed.
That being said, this company is only charging customers $25 for a year’s membership, they provide a 30 day free trial before you ever pay your membership fee, and the deals they send to you come directly from the airlines themselves, not from some third party booking agent. Customers who are interested in trying this service for themselves should feel fairly comfortable.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are many different available travel apps, websites, and even travel clubs available online which promise to provide people with access to special pricing for airfare and other vacation deals, so customers will have no lack of options. Some popular alternatives include Hopper, Skyscanner, and many others.

they will not reply to anyones emails about refund, look at the hundreds of online complaints, there phone does not accept calls. impossible to get refund without changing banks or canceling credit cards.
I have been sending emails to cancel my subscription for the entire subscription period and now I need to ring my bank as no-one responds and there is no phone number. Which country are they in. They have taken money for another year without my approval and the whole time I had been sending emails. DO NOT TRUST THEM.
I tried to cancel my membership for a full week before it renewed, because I just don't care about random flights to random destinations at random times of the year. They won't answer any of my repeated emails or Facebook messages, and they charged my anyway. They're a scam.
I've been a member for 3 months. I haven't actually used it yet. The product is that travel deals are sent to your email box. The deals look interesting, but if I am not available to travel at that moment, it is not that useful. I vaguely remembered signing up, and saw the charge on my credit card bill, so I went online to check my account to see what I signed up for. I found that there is no login for members! There was nowhere I could view my account or "profile" to see what I was signed up for, what information they had on me, etc. I wanted to know what I was paying for, was it monthly, quarterly, annually, if they had my credit card info, and if it were an automatic "subscription" or what.
There is a website but it is only for getting new members to sign up. There is no website access for paid members! As far as I could tell there is no way for members to communicate with them other than the general "Contact Us" available to anyone. I was able to communicate with them through the chat feature. That takes a leap of faith. Not a comforting option. But the response was quick. I found that I was set up for an annual membership with automatic renewal and that I would NOT receive any notice before my credit card was billed again. I don't like that at all. If I had understood that I am sure I would not have signed up, but shame on me for not being more careful, and shame on them for not being upfront about it.
The chat representative offered to discontinue the automatic renewal. Thanks for that. I am sure that was not given as an option on sign up. I did opt for that at this time and I am sure they will be keen on sending a notice of renewal under these circumstances when the time comes.
All that said, for $25 I don't think it is a bad deal, aside from their business practices. I have spent hours trolling the internet for good deals and I think they do a fair job of it. But then again, I haven't booked anything yet. I don't care for their business practices and that is a deal breaker. The potential for abuse, and the inability to verify the purchase are concerning. They could do better. It is a choice.
I understand they are just developing their "product," and it is a rapidly changing field. I hope they continue to expand to where they offer member access, where one can verify one's account information and can see what deals are available to them at a given time.
And they have to change the stealth automatic subscription renewal if that are to be legit.
