A GTI affiliate website located at what GTI is all about these days despite comments from the founders that they operate differently.
Insiders, former employees at Global, claim employees are trained at "bait and switch" tactics concerning their many available programs.
For example, Global Travel International and Prestige Travel provide photo ID cards but are not MLMs.
Such a supplier is not looking down the road because by condoning the card mill practice, it is diminishing the value of a professional travel agent.
If the real travel agent is treated on the same level as everyone else we would wind up with untrained travel agents, together with the additional scams that would result.
GTI has been the recipient of many complaints, some of which included their highly aggressive recruiting policies and misleading advertising practices.
The BBB has recorded 210 complaints over the last 36 months with 38 just in the last 12 months.
Fortunately, many operators are taking steps to reduce this problem including the cruise lines.
