Vacation Strategy Confirmation Email Timeline

I just received my confirmation letter and final balance due email from Vacation Strategy for our rental at Wyndham Bonnet Creek. We are 52 days out from our check-in, has anyone else ever received their email this far out? I was under the impression that the balance would be due more around 30 days out.

When I booked with them, I was told I would receive it 30-50 days out.

Just got mine today and I called the WBC to confirm my reservation before paying. I was in the system and everything appears to be in order. Sounds like some of the prior headaches have been resolved.

Except for the downside of having to pay at the 50+ day mark vs. the 20 day mark

Wow...you leave so much later than me. We arrive on the 20th of Oct. Weird that you got it on a weekend too. Maybe mine will be there in the morning

I was also surprised to see it. I am not sure if I have to pay immediately or could pay Fri. I sent them an email but haven't heard back, yet 0.

I know its impossible...but I wouldn't stress about this at all. When they first hit the scene there was some reason to stress, but their track record appears fine now.

As I had previously posted I'm sure different types of reservations require different levels of involvement and coordination. You very well could have a more complex reservation than others and its taking more time to piece it all togther.

So sit back and mentally prepare...worst case scenario you buy one last minute through someone else. They will not be sold out during that time most likely.

Thanks for the encouragement Just sitting here waiting...I know it will come soon enough. Just a bit more time we get to hold onto our money I do feel better since I spoke with them. I would just like to have one more thing behind me. Im trying to be patient....God just didnt give me too much of that, unfortunately
