Yearly we pay an assessment for properties we have no membership privileges. We have to pay an exchange fee for every rental to RCI, even the ones on the Escrow papers
Global Exchange Vacation Club offers no benefits or better RCI exchange privileges.

This club seems to be a real estate scam. Is it best to file a claim with the state? Or what is the best way to get rid this membership or to stop GEVC from taking advantage of customers?

    Same here, promised $100 for gas but submitting the $20/mo seems to be useless. I suppose that promises by this company cannot be taken seriously. Avoid them.

    It has been difficult selling the my Global Exchange Vacation club since there really there isn't specific home location or ownership in real estate.
    This has been a lesson learned not to become involve with any timeshare or vacation club because they are more costly than what you receive.

    It has been a negative and costly learning experience. After showing us all these beautiful places it turns out that 10, 000 earns you 10, 000 points. You can't even go to palms springs for less than 40, 000 points. You have to pay hundreds of dollars in fees to carry it over every year plus matenance fees. We could have taken three or four gray vacations with our 10, 000 dollars. Instead we are trying to save up enough points for one vacation. Don't ask about the supposed free trip to Catalina. It was so horrible we had to find our own hotel and pay a great deL of money for an unplanned room expense. Don't sign up. It's to late for us-though I would mind a class action suite. I feel sorry for all the people who signed up, they were so excited and then nothing. Penelope

    We paid over $13, 000 for this scam!!! and now we are supposed t pay $655.20 per year for "maintenance"...on what? We don't have anything. I used them one time for a trip to Mexico...expensive trip!!! When I've looked for a place I've either found they don't have anything in that area or nothing is available...BUT I can get points!!! I don't need POINTS!!! It's unbelievable to me that this company hasn't been sued and put out of's worthless. Now even after we paid this thing OFF, our perfect credit may be messed up if we decide not to pay the maintenance fee.

    I was also scammed . I went to claim a trip that I had won and got into signing up for this did a 600 and something down payment and payed for a few months I tried to cancel and no one ever assisted me on this. so I left it alone and turns out that now it showed up on my credit score that I owe 7700 dollars. I don't know what to do I tried calling them to find out which bank facilitated this money to them and they won't tell me. what advice do you give?

    I've come to realize that after attending many timeshare presentations, this one is no different than the rest. They all hide behind the written agreement and documents disclosed during the 2 hours we were there. The only different with this company is it's more of a travel club and not a timeshare. That's why there is a Certificate of Title and not a Deed. After filing a complaint and being loud about my issues, it comes down to the fact that as long as there are options in the world I can travel, it proves the membership works even though its not the area I may be interested in. If there were never any results, it would be useless but because technically there are places to book, they can say inventory is "upon availability" and cancelling because you cannot get to YOUR specific place, is not grounds to cancel. My $5000 learning lesson is not worth the headache of taking anyone on when I know I did sign off on these stipulations. Moving forward, I now ready all my purchase agreements for anything I buy without being rushed.
