Non-members (soon to be new members, hopefully) Looking for timeshare info and help? You have found the right place. We have an incredible array of resources available on this web site to help you. Timesharing can be wonderful if you take your time to learn what it is all about before you make your commitment. We have found that timeshare owners are the nicest people, make great friends and will bend over backwards to help. The quote I hear the most from new members is "I wish I had known about TUG before I bought my first timeshare"

TUG Needs Your Resort Reviews - our review Reps are trying to find better ways to encourage members to submit more Resort Reviews. They have discussed several solutions and will be upgrading the Review Input Form to make it easier to submit. The reviews are the real backbone of our group and we get many rankings submitted without the corresponding reviews. It all boils down to just taking a little time to share your resort experiences with the rest of your fellow members. If you have any trouble submitting reviews online, you can always just email your text reviews directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will see the reviews are sent to the correct rep for posting.
Banner Ad Program We have now grown to more than a dozen websites just to handle the current access volume which is running over 250,000 hits per day. TUG has a banner ads program for timeshare and travel related businesses and resorts to advertise their specials to our members. Thanks to Sing Li ( programming volunteer ) and Ron Donze for putting this package together.
