    • Hi Millie,

      Don’t worry, this email went out to all members. This was merely educational, showing the importance of the Reservation Confirmation for when you do make a booking.

  1. We’ve been members since 2002 and we love it. Communication with Global has been great. We’ve had occasional issues with units not having what was advertised, but it has always worked out. Last year a resort tried to charge us more than what was listed for electrical charges but that was settled.
