You need to do the following things to avail the holiday voucher.

U have to call up the customer care no.[protected]. they'll immediately give you the unique id i[censored] give them ur ITBC no.(membership no.). I got the code on the first call itself.
make sure u r infront of the PC. Enter the code given by them while still speaking to them. So that u can make sure that the code given by them works. Once you submit u'll get confirmation.

But here is the tricky part. They have the following rules.

How to avail your holiday package.
Step 1:

Send the below mentioned documents the address given below at least 30 working days before the 1st preferred booking date only by courier :
Please also write ‘ITBC holiday package’ on the envelope.
ITBC Travel Voucher
A-1 First Floor
Sector 10 Noida UP
PIN 2010301

Print a Copy of this page.
Valid Photo ID Proof ( DL, Voter id Card, Passport Copy, PAN Card ) any one of them
Demand Draft of Rs.800/- in favor of payable at Noida UP branch Issued only from Indian bank. These charges are collected for the services rendered in the booking. There will be no further charges to be paid at the hotel.
Copy of Invoice from ITBC.
1 Passport size Photograph.
List of 3 preferred destinations/hotels with check-in dates(all 3 destinations' check-in dates must have a difference of atleast 7 days

Step 2:
Once we receive the documents we will call you to reconfirm the booking at any one of the hotel preferred by you.

Step 3:
After getting the confirmation from you on phone, we will send you a confirmation e-voucher to your email address with all the details of your travel.

Step 4:
Once you get the e-voucher from us you need to print it and submit it to the hotel counter at the time of checking into hotel
Mean while in case you require any assitance you can E-mail us at [protected] or Call us @ +[protected] from Monday to Tuesday between 11:00 to 16:00 IST

If you are satisfied and are ready to spend Rs.800 then you can go ahead and avail the offer.
Today I recieved mail from India Today & IRCTC and I paid Rs.574 for Britannica Encylopedia, Addidas bag, Rs.300/- Book club for 1 year, Rs.2990/- Holiday package.

Reading the fraud and Rs.800/- extra for Holiday I think I also got trapped for this fruad. I am very annoyed that such renowed companies like India Today & IRCTC are going to extent to fraud the people like persons of Nigeria, African are doing by sending fraud mails.

I think this should be figure out in rival channels of Aaj Tak also like NDTV extra

This is a fraud. Please don't pay anything and fall in their trap
Can I add my two bits and say that I have been cheated by these people as well. The y simply don't respond to repeated mails. What is amazing is that this is a concern we associate with one of the pioneers of thought and information revolution -- Mr. Aroon Poorie. Now I will go around telling everyone that after this even the news and analysis in India Today is suspect.
i too booked on 11.05.08. i only received three cds on 18.06.08. The adidas bag was not sent to me. Also, the membership no & web login number given for availing the holiday offer are not working. It is unecessary for us to go into all the details to ascertain whether it is cheating or not. As many have been cheated, it is better to lodge a complaint in the consumer court and leave the matter to the law to decide.
how i can enrolled with you.

India Today Book Club — Not been able to log in

Dear Sir/Madam,
I do not know how but started getting the mail from ITBC and some books offer. Ultimately we agreed to buy some and got three CD vide invoice no ORB[protected] dated 25.05.08. An order no is also there (not given by me) OGB[protected]dated 21.05.08.
Now that I received the CD, but no free gift was there.
An instruction was there that to claim we need to log on to .
But not been able to get in to the ITBC site with the log in ID and password given on the invoice are not working.
Pl let me know the secret of this scheme other it will be difficult to believe any organisation of such kind in India.

India Today Book Club — non recieving of the adidas bag and holiday vocher

i am dr santhosh working as the pediatrician in sullia, DK
i ordered for the 3 cds and free gift of adidas bag and the holiday vocher through the, i recieved the cds but i did not get neither the adidas bag nor the hloiday vochers, they avised me to enter the entered the site and entered the ITBC membership number, invoice number etc but the reply i got was the numbers are invalid.they have mentioned about the unique code that is printed in the invoice of the order which is also confusing, my membership number is ITBC08476433.please let me know what is th esolution for this ...this appears like a cheating in the name of INDIA TODAY ..which is unacceptable and unbearable .
I got a VPP of Rs 734/- without even ordering a book. It looks like the book club itself don't have the values which the books teach. They just want to encash by misguiding the members.
I have received the books and paid Rs699.00, but have not received the holiday package4 and adidas bag.
LIVING MEDIA/INDIA TODAY gifts /holiday vouchers is the biggest fraud of the decade.i have paid 534 not received any thing two months passed by.i have written off.They proved what is india today corruption, cheating, rape and robbery.therefore name it self says they are cheats.I will keep on writing and telling the refined fraud of Living media to every one and publish in UK/USA
about the frauds of so called great Book company.I will drag them to court and ensure justice
