Ask the Timeshare Crusader

Our "Ask the Timeshare Crusader" series continues this month with the following question from Keith:

We recently went to a presentation by a travel consolidator. Similar to a timeshare, they offer to sell an upfront membership fee and annual dues, then offer discounts on timeshare and other properties (similar to an II or RCI hotweek). We got the impression that these companies are buying up timeshares on the cheap to resell to their members. Does anyone know anything about these companies, and whether or not they are a good deal?

Member Review:

"I grew up in New York City and it always was my dream to own a piece of Montauk. Gurneys Inn is a Gold Crown oceanfront resort. It’s the best place in Montauk to relax and enjoy the summer. This resort is always updated and maintained to the highest level possible. Gurneys has it all: great food, great spa, great beach, and lots of special events to entertain you all summer long, and a stellar staff that makes you feel special during your entire stay. I know where I will spend my summer vacation… @ GURNEYS"
