PROS / You get access to several discounts and perks as a member.
CONS / Club Wyndham does not disclose pricing information unless you attend a presentation.
VERDICT / You can own your vacation with Club Wyndham and easily travel North America without having to search outside of the vacation club’s network, but you can’t get details about the club unless you agree to attend a live presentation at one of the club’s resorts.
Club Wyndham has a network of more than 200 resorts throughout the United States, Mexico, Canada and Australia, so you’re more than likely to find one that suits you and your family. The travel club is also associated with Shell Vacation Clubs and one of the newest timeshare companies, Margaritaville Vacation Club.
If you invest in the best vacation clubs, you can expect to see the pricing information upfront, but Club Wyndham’s support staff did not release any details on the cost of points or the price of a unit in any of its resorts. The company also did not disclose information on fees or whether the real estate purchase you make expires after a certain number of years. Club Wyndham’s network of resorts may be plenty for you to explore, but if you want more, you can trade your week or points for an international experience through the exchange group RCI.
Some of the best timeshare resorts will provide its members benefits that make vacation ownership even more valuable. This vacation club includes a program called Perks by Club Wyndham, which gives you access to discounts to airfare, car rentals, round of golf, hotel rooms, movies, cruises and restaurants. All of these discounts are subject to change.
It was nearly impossible to get information from Club Wyndham associates. The best timeshare company on our lineup gave us pricing information, fees and even sent a blank contract so we could sift through the legal language, but we got nothing from Club Wyndham. If you want to find out the cost of a timeshare vacation home within Club Wyndham, you have to agree to a long presentation at one of the company’s properties.
If you’re looking for a vacation club that will allow you to roam a couple of continents without having to use an exchange group, Club Wyndham may be a good choice. Also, members get an automatic membership to RCI, an exchange group that opens international doors you wouldn’t have had access to otherwise. You won’t get much information about the initial or ongoing costs without going to a presentation, though.
