Timeshare and vacation club presentations are an excellent way to receive free tickets to local attractions, complimentary accommodations and other incentives. The gifts you can receive range from run of the mill to spectacular, all with the intent to encourage travelers to sit through a presentation. Before you attend this kind of event, you need to be prepared. Here are the things you’ll need to bring with you, if you decide to make a purchase:
The Right Mindset
You realize that timeshare and vacation club presentations are for making a sale, so approach the event with an open mind. Let the presenter know before the session begins that if you’re interested, you will certainly make a purchase, but that you’re not interested in being pressured into buying something you know you don’t really want. This will allow you to enjoy the presentation without as many pressures from the presenter.
It’s a waste of your time and the presenter’s if you lead them on, pretending you’re interested in a particular product just to let them down at the very end. If the timeshare they bring up sounds interesting to you, show your intentions. If you’re not interested in that particular property or product, make it apparent so you can move on to something that is of interest.
Knowledge of Timeshares
Do your research ahead of time so you know how timeshares work and what you like about them. Then, when the presentation begins, you can tell the presenter that you’re more interested in learning about the amenities of the resort rather than the ins and outs of timeshares. This decreases the presentation time and brings the session to the point more quickly.
You may not have attended a timeshare and vacation club presentation before, but if you’re even remotely interested in what the presentation offers, it’s certainly worth attending. Connect with us on Twitter for more information!
