You'd think that people spending tens of thousands of dollars on these programs would look into these possibilities beforehand.

The opposite, the fact that I'm paying tens of thousands should leave me the peace of mind that all will be taken care of.

With prices like are being charged, there should be legal binding contracts signed by all parties (including hotels and suppliers) involved.

Imagine the write up if it was Dans program that cancelled.....anyway, I don't think anyone who booked with this program is lacking the funds to simply change plans to a different location....

That's indicative of poor money management, if you're not going to make sure that what you're spending 10's of thousands of dollars is guaranteed and backed up, those 10's of thousands aren't going to last long.

Finding something available at this point has got to be difficult.

To those of you complaining about Pesach programs in general, would you go if it were free?

Also, the guy running the program actually lives in Belgium, so I'm not sure if he qualifies as Israeli.

I've done both. Going away is better both b'ruchnies u'bigashmias. I would assume it depends on the program, speakers and Rabbonim present.

I wouldn't go if it were free. It goes against everything we were taught regarding our values and pesach.
