Incentives To Attend Timeshare Presentations

We’ve all been propositioned before with the free 3-day 2-night vacation just for sitting in a 90 minute presentation.  There’s even a thriving business industry devoted to provide timeshare companies and travel clubs these incentive vacations and other promotional type travel certificates like cruises, airfare, free vacations, etc.  They all sound great and the certificates look wonderful.

Many of these certificates have very restrictive conditions however.  Examples of what a person who redeems one of these certificate might need to do include:

  • Travel on specific dates (most likely during the week at off-peak times)
  • Mail in a form that has to be filled out exactly as specified
  • The certificate may return a voucher that must be filled out in order to gain access to your free trip
  • Pay for upgrades for better accommodations

Here’s a story of a promotion that doesn’t even give away anything tangible; it’s just an entry to a sweepstakes.

So, just know that you’ll have to read the fine print on these promotions.  Keep in mind that the certificates are bound by the rules that they set.  If you follow them, you should be able to utilize them.  Just don’t be surprised when the free trip doesn’t put you in the lap of luxury.

  1. I am going to do my best to use the free cruise, well not so free, but cheaper than if I booked one myself. I know it will wind up costing us around 800 at the end of it.

  2. Yes it is good to attend the timeshare presentations or else seminars on timeshares.That makes a huge difference in business like especially like Real Estate.
