Sunshine Promotions accused of offering 'free' travel with hidden cost

A Nevada-based travel company that allegedly told people they would be given free trips and travel vouchers but didn't tell them about added costs, travel restrictions or their required presence for a sales pitch are settling a lawsuit with the attorney general's office in the District of Columbia.

In a complaint filed in D.C. Superior Court, Attorney General Peter Nickles also alleged Sunshine Promotions LLC offered discounted travel club memberships during sales presentations at hotels throughout the District and at its office at "one time offer" prices when "lower prices have been offered to others."
