“Anyone in Australia considering using IPG consider...”

Written on: 16/01/2017 by JG1966 (1 review written)

Anyone in Australia considering using IPG consider this. What you pay to IPG actually
gets you nothing. They tell you it covers your entry to any of their courses (by the way
that don't own or operate any centres) for a full day and that there are games on
everyday, both of which are untrue. They also tell you that it covers your gear
hire, again untrue. I was sold a package of 10 tickets for the price of 4 tickets, a total
cost of $180.00. When I then made a booking for a course for 6 people, firstly I was
told that i had to choose a morning or afternoon session, therefore not all day as advised
by their salesperson. I was then told that I had to pay $45.00 in advance, non-refundable,
for every player, plus an additional booking fee. This additional $45 was for the
first 200 paintballs according to IPG and to confirm the booking. The day arrived and
we went to the course. The first thing that happened was an argument over our booking
being a full day, as agreed with IPG, with the course manager saying that we were only
to be there for a half day. Then to my great surprise I find out that by going directly
to the course operator and paying them $50, instead of paying IPG, anything at all, it
included the use of the course and the supply of all the equipment including the
marker, additional paintballs are extra, and that's fine and understandable Therefore it
was at this point that I truly found out what IPG does. They are an agent who misleads
you into believing you're getting a great deal, when in fact they are just a booking
service. IPG does not own any paintball courses, nor do they operate any paintball
courses, they dishonestly lead you to believe they do. What you are paying to them
actually gets you nothing, just a booking service. You can go direct to any paintball
centre and avoid paying IPG their booking fee.
