As an enrolled DC member, if I "add a guest certificate" for a Marriott to Marriott exchange made through my DC membership in II do I have to pay the $49 fee or is it covered by the $199 Annual Destination Club Dues? Earlier this afternoon a Vacation Club Advisor said there should not be a fee to me. I asked him if we can speak to II together and get the guest certificate issued without the fee. The three of us were conferenced (II, Marriott Advisor and me). The II person said she was surprised the request asked for the fee. She put us on hold, came back 3-4 minutes later. And low and behold--II wanted to charge the fee. The Vacation Club Advisor was very surprised at II's request for the $49 fee and was going to run it "up the flag pole" in that he said all these fees should be covered for a DC member. Which is it--additional fee or not? For the current time I did not pursue the guest certificate which by the way is for my step-son for his honeymoon at Maui Ocean Club. My alternative thought is to call the resort directly closer to the reservation date and add him and his wife to "my" reservation.
