I was just informed my contract expired in March but I thought I had all of 2021to pay the MF renewal. Has anyone been able to get their contract back after it expired?

Call the 1-800-AWAY-I-Go number and ask. It is my understanding that they need to be paid in the January following the 10 year purchase date and no later than March 30.

I have read that they do not send out renewal notices and was surprised by that. We used to get the 5 year Renovation fee notice and had expected to get the 25 year ones when we had the old contracts. We upgraded to GL in June 2013, and after learning that they do not send out renewal notices, I plan to pay our renewal sometime in June 2023 just to make sure we are covered.

Please help me to understand. If the contract was purchased March 1, 2016, is the renewal fee required by March 30 2026, or by March 30 2027?

Thanks.

January 2027 per Pittle's post. The January following the 10th anniversary.

This is really confusing. That is why I want to make sure that I pay close to the 10 year anniversary date. I understand that some of the contracts have different amounts for per week renewal, so I left that part blank.

In the section for Residence weeks,mine says -

In the Registered section it says.

Yes, it is very confusing.

With the way the contracts work, the first year starts when you sign. With the example I gave if you sign on March 1, 2016, the last period you receive weeks for is for March 2025 to March 2026. There are no weeks available from March 2026 onwards unless one has renewed. If one waits to renew until January 2027 it would not be possible to book from March 1, 2026 until renewal.

Hence my confusion about the cut off for renewal.
