Worldmark By Wyndham / travelshare

Fairbanks, AK, United States Review updated:

My family and I were recently on vacation in Anaheim. We were lured into going to a sales presentation by a prize and were suckered into buying a travel share. What a big mistake! We were stupid enough to be taken advantage of and mislead into buying something based on false information by the sales staff. We are looking for other individuals that have gone through this situation and that might be starting a class action lawsuit to join them or to hear if they have been able to cancel it somehow and what steps did they take. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry to hear that you had a bad experience. However, aren't all sales pitch events high-pressure, regardless if they're selling cars, timeshares, insurance, MLM, etc. ? Sales staff will say almost anything to get you to buy, because that's how they make money unless they're interested in having you as a returning customer and will hopefully treat you better.

    In this day and age of the internet, being prepared before going to any type of meeting should be considered mandatory. And at the end of the day, you can always say "no" or "I'll sleep on it." Buyer's remorse will usually leave a bad taste in anyone's mouth.

    We've said no to many sales pitch. Luckily, we didn't say no to Wyndham. I am an owner of Worldmark by Wyndham (originally Trendwest) for over 10 years and am more than satisfied with my ownership. Yes, we couldn't "afford" it at the time due to buying our house and paying off student loans then. But through budgeting, we paid our timeshare off early and enjoyed many "free" vacations throughout the years. Through Wyndham, we were able to invite friends and family to join our vacations creating memories that money really cannot replace. We have bought more credits now in order to enjoy more vacation time. One thing about owning Wyndham: it forces you to go on vacation. Is that really such a bad thing?

    With Wyndham Worldmark you are paying for a service not actual ownership of a unit. We just bought 7000 credits for $18000.00 and a $55 a month maintenance fee. Paid half down with $150 payments over 120 months which means it will cost another $8000 in interest. I am 65 yrs old. We are having buyers remorse and will be rescinding the deal. They give you 7 days to do that so hallelujah! Please don't allow the pressure to affect your decision. Just say no!

    We have always had a great time at the World Mark in Reno, Hawaii, and Angels Camp the rooms are great and it made it so we could stay a whole week and we otherwise couldn't afford to stay like that. We have always had a good time, they have arcade rooms with ping pong tables, air hokey and game machines, swimming pool and BBQ pits. We have always hated to leave when it was time. The kids wanted to move in, has free internet so you can check your email, they have a free shuttle to take you to the casinos in Reno and the kids love the Murphy bed. It has television, fireplace and a stereo system, DVD player, washing machine and dryer, dishwasher, ironing board and iron, always had a great time.
