BMW ECO 2012 ripoff!!
« on: October 16, 2012, 06:37:28 am »
How is this for a new money making scheme. We had to cancel our ECO trip this year due to my Stepdad being sick and passing away. We contacted Maluti Adventures a couple of weeks ago and informed them. They refunded our accommodation minus some fees, no problem. Our entries into the ECO were filled immediately. David de Bruyn from BMW Clubs informed us that they can not refund our entry fees due to the fact that they had to pay all the vendors already.

Now, my problem is, we paid, the people that took over our entry paid their money, but BMW will not refund our entry fee. Talk about being paid double for performing a single duty.

I have always tried to figure out how thundering through the landscape on motorbikes has anything to do with ecology whatsoever?  ???

Contact Coetzee Zietsman, maybe he can help......not fair IMO....

Minzi, if the organisers do not refund you, it is plain dishonesty. Your fill-in is covering the caterers, your money is now a freebie to them.

P.S. BMW "ECO" challenge. This from bikes that could'nt make ECC exhaust emissions anymore. :xxbah:

Hi Minzi,

I'll speak to Coetzee when I get there.

Note: It's not BMW that organised this, it's the "BMW Clubs of South Africa".

I also disagree with the feedback you got - different thing if you cancelled at the last minute and they could not get anyone to fill your place...

Riaan dit is nie sakke vol geld nie R800.00 per entry (2 entries is betaal), maar die prinsiep van die saak is as daar 10 mense kanselleer agv watter rede ook al en daar IS 'n waglys vir mense wat wil gaan en die volgende 10 betaal ook hulle entries............ ja laat mens dink ne!  :o

I agree..............That is NOT right.

 It states on the website that you will be charged R100 admin fee only.

Wil maar net weet hoeveel hulle terug gehou het vir fooie ensv. So as ek reg verstaan aan die boonste post is dit R100 per booking as jy kanseleer of is die R100 per ryer.

Did you cancel before or after 18 September?

That is really all there is to it.
