A True Story From a Global Resorts Network Member Who Will Never Buy a Timeshare Again

This is my true, personal story, about why I know, first hand, that owning a Global Resorts Network Membership is Better than Owning a Timeshare. The bottom line is SAVINGS of THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS on your family and friend's vacations.

Listen to my story before you decide to purchase a timeshare or even if you already own a timeshare. With a Global Resorts Network Membership you will never have to purchase a timeshare and if you already own one and are tired of being stifled because you have limited choices of vacation spots and you don't like paying the high maintenance fees, you will still want to read on. I am a member now and I only wish that someone had told me about this before I spent over $70,000 on timeshare purchases.

Here is where my story begins. I have personally owned two timeshares. I purchased a Global Resorts Network Membership three years after buying my last timeshare.

My first timeshare was with Fairfield and was a points timeshare which allowed me to travel pretty much anywhere I wanted to one time a year during the best weeks. RCI was my timeshare exchange company. After using RCI to go to the Beach Palace Resort
in Cancun Mexico, I was hit hard by the timeshare sales people. I gave in to the high pressured sales tactics literally after 4 hours of bantering back and forth in front of the salesperson.

They talked me into trading my first timeshare with Fairfield for my newest timeshare with the Palace Resorts in Cancun, Mexico. The value they put on my Fairfield timeshare was apx. $18,000. However, I paid about $11,000 for the Fairfield timeshare initially and paid maintenance fees of about $500 for many years. I did go on vacation every year and did use my week, but I never made back my initial investment. $18,000 seemed like a fair trade in price.

My second timeshare with Palace Resorts cost me, with my trade in allowance of the $18,000, over $58,000 for 280 vacation weeks. I did receive about $35,000 in free incentive weeks, however, even with that, I think I was swept away by the beauty of Cancun because my business mind completely left me. I was thinking that I would be able to easily sell this magnificent timeshare I had purchased and that I could rent the weeks that I wasn't able to use or pass the membership along to my family. I was able to rent some of my weeks through Ebay, but have not been able to sell my timeshare
which has been on the market for three years through a variety of companies at 50% of it's original price.

You may ask why I just don't continue to vacation with my timeshare. It's pretty simple. Every time I have to travel to Cancun
Mexico or any of the Palace Resort properties I still have to pay the mandatory all-inclusive fee. Those fees range from a low of $1500 for two for the week to a high of almost $7000 for a presidential suite. So, on top of the $58,000 I paid (plus my $18,000 trade in), I still have to pay every time I travel. Even with my exchange company, RCI, my exchange fee to travel anywhere outside of my home resort, is almost $700 for a week.

So why in the world would I ever join a discount travel club
membership like Global Resorts Network when I already own a timeshare? I have my timeshare up for sale (you can see the details by clicking here) I want to travel at huge discounts for the rest of my life. I want my children to be able to travel at huge discounts for the rest of their lives too.

A Global Resorts Network membership allows me the freedom to travel when and where I want, as many times as I want, per year at great discounts to timeshare properties WITHOUT having to own a timeshare. There are NO maintenance fees. You pay a one time membership fee to join for a lifetime of 100 years (which is transferrable and willable) and then you only pay as you go. The most you will pay is $799 for a week and that could be for two people and even up to 8 people depending on the accomodations you choose. You will even be offered what are called HOT WEEKS where you and your family can travel for as low as $298 for a week.

There is never a need ever again to buy a timeshare. You will need the facts and if you want to see them laid out in black and white,
click here. Don't waste your money on buying a timeshare ever again. With a Global Resorts Network Membership, there is no need to. You and your family and friends can enjoy a lifetime of travel, worry free. By the way, there are discounts on cruises, airfare, hotel stays, car rentals - all as part of the membership.

This is NO Joke. You Will Save HUGE Amounts of Money When You Join Either One of These Discount Travel Club Memberships

If you are a travel consumer like I am, these memberships are for you. If you would like to build a viable home-based travel business, both of these memberships will allow you to do that because they offer a first rate product that everyone can use.

The travel industry is a $7 to $8 TRILLION industry. As such, people are spending many unnecessary dollars on vacations that they could have saved a fortune on. I highly recommend these two products because I am a member of both and I USE both of these for my own and my family's vacations. Seriously, don't spend another penny on your next vacation until you check them out. Compare them and see which one better meets your needs. Maybe, like for me, both will. I use both for personal travel and one as a business promotion tool for my home based businesses. Enjoy! Oh, if you sign up for a free tour (which I always recommend that you see what you will be getting before you buy) , I will send you a huge discount travel voucher for a buy one free get one free airfare. With today's gas prices and airline fares, that should save you a few dollars!

If You Love to Travel, Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

Hi and thanks very much for visiting my blog.

Yes, this is my picture. It's the formal business one and although I am formal when needed, believe me, when I am beelining it for the beach, I am as laid back as can be.

I am for real and this blog will briefly talk about the two travel club businesses I am associated with and promote both on a retail level and on a business to business level. I am also providing links to both of my websites so you can compare what each has to offer. The websites you will see are websites that you also will have access to as members. Even if you just decide to join to get the travel discounts, you will want to at least sign up as an affiliate on GRN (it only costs $100 a year to keep the website going) just in case you decide to tell someone else about the business. When you do tell someone else, you can earn a quick $1000. Not a bad commission check for giving someone the gift of discount travel to four and five star resorts!

As a travel lover, I like to seek out the best discount travel bargains for me and my family. As a business person, I also look for opportunities that meet stringent criteria and for a product of value that I can market that involves travel.

I have found two travel club memberships, both great for consumers because of the products they offer and both excellent money earners for those who are business minded, who want to earn an excellent commission on sales, and who would like to combine travel with business and use it as a write off (make sure you double check with your accountant but I am writing both of my businesses off).

Why would I tell you about two businesses instead of one? Both businesses truly are excellent. I personally can't decide which one I enjoy marketing more. There are differences between the two, but both offer dramatic discounts to excellent resorts, worldwide and both are worth of consideration. Combined, their travel discounts are unbeatable.

Both allow for retail consumer sales and business to business sales. The consumer will be happy with the savings they experience time after time, and the business person will be happy with the commissions s/he can earn over and over again, levels deep while sitting on the beach, marketing their product.

I have made sales quickly with these travel club memberships, but even with that, I realized that I have a lifetime to make these sales. If I don't want to be pressured, I don't have to, or, if I want to build a full time business from these travel products, I can do that to and fairly quickly. Set your goals to make one or two sales per month and when you start to exceed those goals, you will quickly realize what the potential is for each of these businesses.

So check them out: the first is and the second is:

The most important thing you can do is look at both websites carefully and then sign up for the free tours that are offered. Both offer a look at the back office BEFORE you purchase the memberships. The first offers a lower price point to start, but there is a small monthly fee. This is a good consumer product, but an excellent product for anyone interested in the travel business. The second is both an excellent consumer product and an excellent business product. There is a one time, lifetime, membership fee you can choose and then only a $100 fee per year if you decide to market the opportunity and get a beautiful website you can promote. Here is that website:

No one can guarantee your success in any venture, but when you have two businesses with excellent products you can be proud to market, you have nothing to be concerned about. Besides, even if you never join these memberships to be in business, you will save so much on your vacations, you won't really care about the initial cost. You will be too busy saving money and going on vacations, that after one or two trips with your family, your initial cost will be paid back with the savings you will get on your vacations.

Please contact me through my websites if you have any questions. I can teach you how you can be self confident and how that self-confidence can win over partners for your business. I will be more than happy to speak with you or have others in my groups speak with you as well to reassure you that these are two of the most excellent travel businesses you could ever use personally or consider for business. We won't need to sell you on anything. You can see for yourself what value is in both of these great travel club products.

No More Timeshares - Why You Will Never Need Another Timeshare

When it comes to spending money on timeshares, I am, sad to say, an easy sell. I love to travel. Give me a beautiful white powder sand beach at a five star resort in Cancun and I think I have to support all of Mexico by buying the most expensive timeshare around.

Since that time, I have learned my lesson. I have found out so many things about timeshares that it has made my head spin. Now I know that I will never have to buy another timeshare for the rest of my life and my children's lives. NO MORE TIMESHARES for me ever again.

I am now a proud member of a private travel club to which you also can belong. I get to travel to four and five star timeshare properties without having to spend huge amounts of money up front and then maintenance fees for the rest of my timeshare life. I only pay a one time membership fee and then I only pay when I want to travel. If I want to travel one time per year, I can. If I want to travel 365 days a year, I can do that too. There is no limit and get this, my most expensive timeshare cost me . . . I can't even say how much up front because I am too embarrassed. I will tell you that the total cost of my timeshare was just under $60,000 but, I also have to pay $1500 to $7,000 per week for two adults each time I want to travel to Cancun.

Don't get me wrong. These are fantastic five star resorts, but I could have saved so so much money had I known about this travel club membership. Yes, you do have to pay a one time fee up front, but you can choose your level. After that, you only pay when you travel and, your week can cost as low as $298 to a high of $799 PER FAMILY (you choose the size of the timeshare resort you want to stay in).

CLICK HERE NOW to find out more. You won't want to pass up this membership if you like to travel and for your own sake, please don't buy a timeshare until you at least take a look at this. Even Disney and Shell are part of this membership. Why pay for those memberships extra when you can access some of their best properties through this one?
