No, but one of the largest red flags against them is that they contacted you. The next largest is that they’re asking for an upfront fee. Run away, fast!I was contacted by Global Resort Options to sign them up to rent my timeshare. They look legit but wary as they want $4000 one time fee. Anybody else getting approached by this company?

They are NOT legit. I hope you didn't sign up with them and pay their ridiculous Membership Fee.I was contacted by Global Resort Options to sign them up to rent my timeshare. They look legit but wary as they want $4000 one time fee. Anybody else getting approached by this company?
I also just found TUG. I have Grandview and Cliffs at Peace Canyon, both in Vegas. I just signed up. What are the benefits?Since you just found TUG today, and are inquiring about possibly renting your TS, you can rent it here in the Marketplace if you actually join TUG for $15.
And I see you list your resort ownership as Grandview. They are frequently on RCI Last Call lists for $300 for a week. That's your competition.
Welcome to TUG. Where you get straight answers.
I dealt with this company today. Beware of Global Resort Options! They are an aggressive sales company that purports to rent timeshare properties to corporate clients in locations like Orlando and Las Vegas. They require a Lifetime Membership fee of at least $3247 upfront in order to be able to rent your timeshare properties at $1800 per week. My sales agent was sweet and helpful on the phone, but before agreeing to this program, I decided to do an investigation of the company, it's affiliates, it's owner, etc. Their website is not consumer friendly and most of the pages are password locked. I was hoping to find out how many timeshare properties were available and where - but I could not. I contacted the Orange County FL Convention Center administration office who had no knowledge of this company. You will note that their Google reviews are mostly 5 stars, posted by mostly local people in the Orlando area who have posted few or no other Google reviews - often a sign of fake reviews posted by friends of the agents. Their Better Business Bureau page also has 16 reviews - all 5 stars - but as long as there are no complaints, these reviews are not investigated by BBB - so anyone can post anything, real or not. The company is also not BBB accredited, meaning BBB has verified nothing about them. They will direct you to the Florida Dept of Agriculture and Consumer Services to see that they have 0 complaints. I spoke to the FDACS and confirmed that they only post complaints if there is a proven loss of money, etc. But the company's license was only issued in Sept 2021. FDACS said this was because they had probably changed the name of the company then. So a new company with a clean record. I called Global Resort Options back with some concerns and I was handed off to their very aggressive team manager, Ken Emerick, who was not happy when I told him I had been investigating them. Unfortunately, all these red flags indicate that they have things to hide - but they do a very good job of high pressure selling.
I'm very thorough. I enjoy investigating and solving problems. I would never blindly believe that something is a scam until I can confirm it myself. Call me strange.
The benefits of TUG membership are the access to reviews of thousands of resorts where you may visit. You will appear to be associated with knowledgeable owners, and you won't have to see a bunch of ads on TUG to see content.I also just found TUG. I have Grandview and Cliffs at Peace Canyon, both in Vegas. I just signed up. What are the benefits?
I would very quickly take a look at what you can get buying resale. Im sure it is considerably cheaper... Like this(from the marketplace on this site) 3 Br lock off Luxury Villa during peak Foliage Season. Spacious AB unit with 2104 square feet. 2 kitchens, 2 fireplaces and a spa. Maintenance fees paid for 2022. Seller pays for deed and SVOA transfer fee for 500 bucks plus? Is that better than what you paid? If so, hurry up an rescind according to their requirements!So sounds like people shouldn't sign up with Global Resort Options, but if someone does...are they a legitimate place to rent from? They just sent me over a contract to rent a week, but don't want to run into any issues when I show up to use said week. Thanks. Also on a side note, got my 1st timeshare this week, but obviously can't access RCI or other exchanges until after the rescission period....any value of Massanutten resort and how hard to use (or get any sort of desirable property anywhere) are all the extra VIP weeks, Bonus weeks, RCI certs, etc that they entice you with during the hardsell?
You really need to start a new thread with your questions. You will not attract much attention piggybacking your questions on a thread that has little to do with what you want to know VS why this thread was started.$260 MF week 4 odd years, included their $365 gold card, plus 3 "bonus weeks" tossed in per year. What is usability/value of the bonus weeks that you don't get when buying a resale? Cost out the door was $5k
So sounds like people shouldn't sign up with Global Resort Options, but if someone does...are they a legitimate place to rent from? They just sent me over a contract to rent a week, but don't want to run into any issues when I show up to use said week.
The poster also added in questions about a massanutten unit that they just acquired....Who sent you the contract? Was it Global Resort Options or the timeshare owner?
Global Resort Options own disclosure says “Global Resort Options, LLC is not involved in any negotiations relative to the rental, closing or procurement of buyers of timeshare interests.”
I would love to know the details. Did you find a week and inquire directly from their website? Who responded, what was the response and how quick? What does the contract say?
The cheapest rental price that I have ever seen on these scam listing companies is $1800/week which is high. I would like to check the rental prices for Global Resort Options but after navigating through the “pay us big bucks to sell/rent your timeshare” BS to find their little link of “search properties” at the very bottom I entered a resort to search and get an error that it is password protected. Seriously? This scam is almost comical. How did you even find something to get a “contract” on?
