I am looking into joining this but am really apprehensive about Vacation Clubs/time shares. We are a family of 5 that has spent a considerable amount on our summer vacations the past 3 years and also have taken a trip over the spring break averaging $1500-2000. We went to the presentation this morning for Marriott's Vacation Club. I need some guidance on whether buying from the company is better than buying online as a resale - the price is considerably more through the company but I'm also nervous about buying from an individual without knowing others who have been through this. So....has anyone here bought a Marriott Vacation Club time share? Did you buy it from the company or as a resale? Would you do it again? Does it really afford you the opportunity to exchange as easily as they say (we want to travel all over the world). Thanks for any help. Oh, and if you know of any good sites for 1) buying on resale and/or 2) talking to time share owners about their experiences, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!!!
