no longer own any timeshares. Look to rent only
A lot of times they will withhold the parking passes until you agree to go or they give up. Luckily, some places don’t need them so you can walk away. Other ones you do. Reunion and Sea watch come to mind. It’s not always as simple as saying no and walking away. Sometimes you have to get darn right rude before they give up and that irks me the most. I hate having to be rude to someone.

I have no problem being rude. As far as I'm concerned, they are being rude to me, so... tit for tat

So one time at WM Seaside the Parking Pass folks were being more aggressive than normal. So after saying NO, NO, NO and still NO. I went over to the Check-in Desk and spoke to the Manager on Duty (many of the resort staff professionals dislike the sales staff) and told him that if we were bothered by telephone, etc that on the post stay survey the resort would get all zeros. He said he would take care of it and disappeared into the Back Office. I do not know what he did but we were not bothered the entire week.
