    I have a slightly different story. I am interested in a Hyatt and attended a Hyatt presentation at Pinon Pointe (Sedona). After listening to the presentation, I was really interested in obtaining the book about what I would really get and what I would remain with if I purchased resale. So I signed up for $20, 000, got all the info (great book!), and then rescinded. I'm 74 so not sure if I should go ahead and purchase - especially now that airbnb offers such great deals. But Hyatts are so nice and in such lovely locations I am still tempted. They go cheap on ebay - but one never finds out if Hyatt exercises ROFR on them

    There is a thread on tripadvisor that started with a tirade about Royal Holiday and now has expanded to Wyndham and other ts points places. Lots of advice on how to get out and how to rescind.

    Just as a separate add on, I own lots of points with Royal Holiday as they have arrangements with timeshares and hotels in many major cities, which I take full advantage of. All bought resale from tug owners or ebay. I am pretty happy with it, as are my friends who rent from me. They get great deals, mostly in New York and San Francisco, and I make some money from them too. Wish we had a Royal Holiday forum here.

    Feel free to add me to the "Saved" list as well. 20k with a rescind letter sent on 7/2/2018 - assuming I don't run into any difficulties with the rescission process (still waiting for confirmation).

    This number is only for those cancelling once they found us. What would the number be if you could add up how much was saved by all tuggers who didn’t buy retail and only purchased resale after finding tug?

    My first timeshare purchase was retail and because I found tug I purchased everything else resale, saving thousands and thousands and thousands.

    no real way to track that, but there are plenty that mention they cancelled but do not give a dollar amount.

    im sure the number is much higher but i dont engage in the sort of "exaggerated marketing" that so many other in this industry do.

    Everything I learned about maximizing my timesharing is thanks to tug. Read a little here, a little there and overtime it added up and I know what I am doing.
