Timeshare Vacation Club

Are you a member of any timeshare vacation club? I've had a mixed bag of comments - positive comments from people who have joined and not-so-good points from people who are not for it.

A friend who has joined would have made back his investment many years ago. He's taken his family to London and Paris, Bali, and yearly trips to Langkawi. Joining this timeshare programme is good in a way that it makes you take a break to go on a vacation.

Initially, when this timeshare programme was first launched in Malaysia, I received a number of invites to attend some slide shows, after which a short holiday would be given out at the end of the session. Of course, the people there would try to sell you their club membership. I'm not much for this sort of programme so I didn't feel good about accepting their holiday offer knowing that I won't be signing up, so I left early.

  1. I do agree with you. There is positive as well as negative responses for such vacation clubs. The negative side is related to money and services. So I always prefer to avoid such agencies. Bye and have a great time ahead.

  2. Web Design webmaster, hi! People who enjoy travelling will find such programmes beneficial.

    Hi David, so true. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. in Singapore, there is a lot of complaints on this coerce selling.

    So of them now offer hotel vouchers and shopping coupons for just attending the talk.. and once u come, they "force" you to buy..

    a lot of people fall into this trap.

  4. Thanks for the post. I really like the experience of vacation club. Your note is indeed a inspiration.

  5. It will be a nice opportunity for vacation club. Pls go through....
