Went to the sales presentation and it sounded good. $500 for a week of vacation. I was assured at the time I purchase that there were plenty of one bedrooms available and that prime season was only for the heavy traveled summer months. I understood that there was a $99 processing fee. I was psyched to start traveling with my .
So after signing up I checked the website and was shocked. Everything was prime season!! So that meant an additional $30/night on top of the $500 I paid plus a $99 processing fee. We wanted to go to and even though I was told they had Orlando properties they really had them in Kissimmee. Okay fine. But it got worse. There were no 1 bedrooms available. So that meant another $30/night bedroom upgrade fee.
Total REAL cost = $500 + $210 prime season fee + $210 bedroom upgrade fee + $99 processing fee + half my annual service charge (I planned on taking two vacations a year) at $175 = $1194. More than double the $500 they pitch and pitch and pitch in the sales presentation!. Went anyways". The place was a dump, looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years and was completely run down..
To make matters worse all my friends laughed at me as they sent me links to way nicer and way cheaper places on VRBO|.com and Homeaway/.com when I told them my horror story;.
I'm currently trying to cancel, but they're saying they won't cancel my contract unless I sign an agreement that I won't say anything about them to my friends, family or on the internet!. They didn't mention any of that when I first purchased,. I mean, what kind of company would actually try to force you to sign a document that says you can't give your honest opinion about them? Shouldn't that tell you everything you need to know right there?
So now I'm stuck with this $15,000 contract, plus a $350 annual service charge for the privilege of spending an additional $600 just to book a broken down unit that no one else would want to go to. 3102538
