Perillo Tours refuses YTB Travel Network bookings

Perillo Tours quietly stopped taking bookings from YTB Travel Network, the controversial Illinois-based multilevel marketing travel agency.

Steve Perillo, president of Perillo Tours, said that when he read Royal Caribbean was weeding out "card mills" and that YTB was on the list, he decided to have a look at YTB bookings for his firm.

He said he found that "90% of the travelers and booking agents were the same person. ...I would love for all agents to take our tours, but this is not the idea. It is to support agents to learn and sell the product, not to use this for their own travel discounts. ...This is abusing the privileges of sellers," he said.

He said Perillo Tours might take similar steps regarding other YTB-like firms, but he needs to learn more about what others are up to first.
