Grattan and Leisure Time

Found 20th Jul 2009
Anyone had dealings with a company called Leisure Time? They sell discount vouchers for an annual charge relating to travel, holidays, dining out and Ticketmaster.

Had bill from Grattan today for £79.99 for the vouchers which they say we signed up for - incentive was 2 cinema tickets. We did not sign up and have had nothing from them.

Seems a bit of a common problem look here:

Grattan refuse to help, Leisure Time say that Grattan sent us an application form and we returned it. They are sending a document with the signature on. From previous reports they will send a faded signature which appears similar to the correct one. Begs the question of how are they getting the signatures.

Othe companies who have been involved in this include Barclaycard, Freemans and Kaleidoscope .

Probably getting your signature from the credit agreement that they make you sign when you first join the catalogues?

They are also connected to National Express coaches. Easy to sign up over the internet when they offer vouchers off future travel, then ask for credit card details! Turns out that when you tick Yes for the £15 travel voucher you are actually agreeing to pay a monthly subcription to Leisure Time and another similar company too!

Dubious marketing methods, dubious advantages.
