World Wide Vacations

I got a phone call from World Wide Vacations and was wondering if anyone has any experience with them.

Basically, they sell you (really cheap, like $50 for Doubletree Orlando for 3 nights) stays at hotels/resorts in exchange for sitting through a timeshare presentation. . I can deal with the presentations, I have done them before & I also have a lot of tricks for keeping them short

So - is the company legit? Any comments? Anyone have any experience with them?

Specifically I was wondering about:
Orlando - Doubletree stay (no idea which timeshare)
Costa Rica - Villas Sol
Cancun - Villa Del Palmar
Grand Cayman - Morritts Tortuga
Las Vegas - Hard Rock Hotel (no idea what timeshare)

I know timeshare presentations are a touchy subject, but this IS a budget board & the can really stretch a dollar

Thanks!

I think you would be better off looking for a reputable timeshare company (is that an oxymoron?). I would be very suspicious of one that contacted me out of the blue and offered me grossly under-priced vacation stays in exchange for "a few minutes" of my time.

I did. Thanks. Unfortunately, there are many companies that go by that name, so you can't sort through it all with any degree of certainty.

Nobody on here has tried them?
