TAN Bonus Week Program

Instead of being limited to just one location and time period, enjoy the option of any available TAN resort, any available time of year! An option for travelers who own non-TAN properties, TAN’s Bonus Week Program offers timeshare owners the ability to trade their own timeshare week for two one-bedroom condo unit credits through the Travel Advantage Network. Each timeshare week deposit, regardless of size, will receive credit for a one bedroom unit for two weeks. You may book a larger size unit, upon availability, to accommodate additional guests or simply for the extra space.

Below is a listing of the number of guests you may typically expect to accommodate in TAN units. If you choose to have the additional room, a per night upgrade fee will apply.

  • Hotel/Studio (2 Guests)
  • One Bedroom (4 Guests)
  • Two Bedroom (6 Guests)

Please note these credits remain in your TAN account as long as it is active. Timeshare points programs are not accepted. If you wish to participate in our Bonus Week Program, please call 800.223.0088 or complete the Banking Certificate below. (Need form.)

Please contact a Total Vacation Services representative for more information on the TAN Bonus Week Program at 800.223.0088, ext. 3.

Terms and conditions: Weeks must be deposited at least sixty days in advance of the scheduled start of your timeshare week. To accept the deposit, all timeshare maintenance fees must be current. Timeshare owners are responsible for any relocation costs incurred if for any reason their timeshare resort does not honor the deposit. Any fees involved in changing the name on the reservation from the timeshare owner’s name to our traveler’s name is the responsibility of the timeshare owner. Anyone who owns ‘floating weeks’ must schedule those weeks with the resort and obtain scheduling confirmation from the resort before banking with TAN. We do not bank “points.” You must have a specific week which you have scheduled with the resort. Any timeshare weeks that have already been deposited with another exchange company will not be honored. Any vacation weeks that have been credited to the account due to timeshare banking have a termination period of one year from the non-renewal of the account. Your timeshare company must allow trading in order for TAN to accept any vacation week.

Q. May I inquire about availability before I submit my request?

Why this is here:

I bought this years ago in 1999

7 prepaid vacations for about $2,500

There is an annual Membership fee of $219

I can purchase additional weeks at $413 a week

Are you with me so far?

and I can buy the spur of the moment excess inventory vacations (that don’t count toward the 7 weeks) unlimited forever as long as I pay the membership fee, plus the free travel agent service, discount airfare, car rental , cruises etc.. I yeah I forgot to mention this includes cruises. call for details on cruises.

Today Vacations are $500 a weeks

and the annual fee is $359 a year

So 7 Prepaid vacations would be $3,500

Here is the bottom line! I don’t go on vacation! I am in the Military so i travel a lot for them on Uncle Sam’s bill. I have been saying for years that I am going to use this and go to Hawaii or Vegas, but I have come to terms that I probably won’t use it for another 5-10 years.

So the bottom line is: I will sell it for $3,000 you say wait I am only saving $500, but you are wrong!

You are also saving $140 a year in annual fees!

That’s $640 in savings!

And you are saving $87 per extra week

Email me for serious inquiries! Do not contact me if you have a resale service! I will not use you!
