Should You Take The Free Trip and Join Great Resort Vacations?
December Ben and I made the decision to join a travel club here in Utah. We went to a club presentation for Great Resort Vacations in Layton, we were very surprised about all of the benefits of buying a travel club membership. If you have seen them on Facebook or Instagram or spoken with someone who is offering you a free trip in exchange for learning more about their travel club membership, it is true, They do actually give you a free trip! I’m going to give you my honest review of this place as a current member. Great Resort Vacations is a club with over 300,000 members who get their travel at a super deep discount. Basically there is absolutely NO commission charged to their members. It’s a very awesome way to begin accomplishing your travel bucket-list.
One thing that I was really surprised about when I joined the membership is that I was able to really open my horizons on places that I honestly never even thought of traveling to. I have started to find all kinds of new destinations I’d like to go to through the Great Resort Vacations membership site, for example, vacationing in Lake Lure, North Carolina. This was a vacation spot I’d actually been to as a child with my family and I had totally forgotten about this beautiful place, until I saw it pop up on the GRV site! It brought back a ton of amazing memories. It’s somewhere I’d love to travel with Ben and our Kids!
Is Great Resort Vacations a Timeshare?
One of the biggest questions that I think people want to know is, is it a timeshare? No it isn’t a timeshare! That is one method of reducing travel costs and having more luxurious vacations, and while some people are not happy with timeshares, others enjoy the benefits that they get from ownership. However, Great Resort Vacations is not that! It’s a totally different business model, but you still get to enjoy upgraded Travel and travel discounts! Timeshares are actual real estate that is deeded and you own it permanently, however you are not purchasing any physical real estate when you purchase a travel membership with Great Resort Vacations.
Deeded Timeshare means that you have real property ownership with other owners and you can use it at a variety of properties. Now this model does have some drawbacks, that Great Resort Vacations has eliminated in their new membership model. It’s got much more availability than traditional timeshare and members have much easier time navigating and using their website.
Is the Great Resort Vacations Membership Actually Worth it?
One night my fiancé and I decided to take a chance and go check out Great Resort Vacations, and we caught the vision & jumped all in, and bought 4 prime weeks!! We are so excited for how this is going to change our families future. We have since been going on some really great family vacations. In fact we recently got back from a cruise to Catalina Island and Ensenada Mexico with Royal Caribbean Cruise Line. We had such a blast on this trip. I even got to check out the spa, you can find my full post about the Royal Caribbean Spa here.
We booked our trip through the travel concierge, and were able take a group of 8 people, with 3 cabins, one being a balcony suite, drove to Las Vegas and stayed for two days in Los Angeles before we went on to our cruise ship. Considering that the membership with Great Resort Vacations helps you on everything travel related, such as booking flights, hotels worldwide, luxury condos, cruises and even luxury private houses and apartments, I think the membership is definitely worth it. It wasn’t cheap, but our average spend on our family is very high. Are you ready to take your family on an amazing vacation? Check out my list of Travel essentials and best gear for traveling here.
Why We Decided to Become Members of Great Resort Vacations
We have a big family. Ben has three children from his previous marriage. Ben has three boys, one is already married and has so we have a grandbaby, and two of his sons live with us. That makes it very expensive to book two or three hotel rooms for our large family. But with our membership with Great Resort Vacations, being able to travel with our entire family has become a possibility now. The alternative is to pay $400-600 a night for three hotel rooms to fit everyone, we’d never be able to afford that? Making travel affordable and possible is honestly what this membership is all about. Even if you don’t need their largest membership option, which is what we got, then you can still save a ton of money. Members usually see a positive ROI between 2-3 years of having their membership, and all of this depends of course on how much you actually travel!
We are so thrilled to have found such an AMAZING membership, let me just encourage you to go out there and take life by the horns. Do it. Go to the places you want to go, travel the world 🌎 see the sights, lay on the shore, see the sunset. Life is too short not to give it a try.
the point is to say,
