Worldwide Leisure Direct Membership info?

A co-worker of mine mentioned a vacation membership service that he had recently used called Worldwide Leisure Direct.

He purchased a membership and booked a cruise for his family. He was truly excited about the discovery and has told me on a few occasions that the customer service was excellent and his trip saved him a bunch of money along the way.

I am just looking for a few more insights before making the call…if there is anyone else that is familiar with this company, please drop me a reply.

I saw your response so I dug in further. I called to inquire about more info or a packet they could send me. I spoke with Oliver and learned that they only deal with their private clients, but what info I did get says tells me they are legit. You need to be invited to join, and they offered to forward my name. I said no thanks because I already have some killer travel perks.

Just received the same pitch yesterday at the same place and took the offer, however after thinking of questions that I should have asked at the presentations and researching further I decided to cancel the deal and immediately notified amex to halt the payment. There were a few things that just didn't make sense plus I could not find any info on Worldwide Leisure Direct plus they only have a PO box in Vegas. Now they very well may be legit but I am going to do more do diligence before I commit my funds to a program like this. If anyone out there has any additional info on WLD, please let me know!

Well, after speaking with a representative, I think I've made my decision. I compared prices and paid over $600 less than the other company I was looking in to. I’m now convinced that this is one of the better investments I’ve made. I am impressed with Worldwide Leisure Direct, they met my expectations and were very patient with me; not trying to pressure me into anything.

I just bought the Exit Package from Worldwide Leisure Direct for $1500.00. It allows me to book 40 weeks within 10 years at any of their resorts in their system, at no additional cost. I was offered this deal, because I kept saying "No" to all of their other timeshare pitches. The first salesman wanted to sell me property for $60,000. The original claim was it was only going to be a 90 minute presentation. That turned into a 7 hour ordeal with four salesmen. I haven't tried their vacations yet, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I didn't get burned.
