Presentation was flawless, Friendly and informative, cared about us as customers and not just a pay day. I highly recommend VI if you’re looking for timeshares, cruises and entertainment! Come and listen to their presentation and you’ll leave a happy customer!

My wife and I did one of these years ago and I swore we would never do it again. This was a true 90 minute presentation. Very enjoyable, and we received all the gifts they promised. Would do this again. The staff was very personable.

We’ve been owners for decades and just recently (finally) made it to VI’s Carriage House resort in Las Vegas. We were on the elevator with 3 other people, one couple who had just attended a presentation on the top floor, the other another VI member. The couple was complaining that the program probably doesn’t work and wasted about an hour of their time and was going to give a “bad review.” The other person rolled her eyes. I felt it was mine and my wife’s duty to see if they did actually do that…. They did! I wish at that moment I took the energy to tell them that they are totally wrong but instead I closed my mouth and enjoyed another wonderful vacation provided by VI. It’s a shame to see negative reviews from people who are talking bad about a company that’s enhanced our lives so much. Our family has always stayed in great places thanks to VI Resorts!

Got my VI program in March and just took our first trip to San Diego. We stayed in Oceanside and had the best time. So much better staying in a resort with a kitchen. Booking Hawaii for summer vaca with the kids for next summer!! Great service, great company!

Very informative. Liked the presentation. We’ve been on these every time we take a trip. This is the best one. We went to Mexico and Dominican Republic. Love VI. You won’t be disappointed. Five stars. Low fees.

The presentation was very professional and informative. I enjoyed learning about the timeshare program. Jason gave us a great deal today and was very kind with everything. I highly recommend coming here with Jason.

My husband and I made a tremendous mistake buying into V.I. after a so called 90 minute high pressure presentation. Which loud music was played and adult teenagers played games trying to snag buyers. We did manage to sneak away and talk about it, which they were not happy about. We then walked back into the extremely loud room where we were pitted against another couple who thanks to the salesperson was pitted against us. First one to buy gets a week long cruise. The other couple immediately bought in. We were then told we would get 7 days of vacation for free. Of course you cannot take the full week, but 3 and 4 days, and only during designated dates. We didn't find this out until after we stupidly bought in.
In the 5 years of ownership, I have been able to book one week in Hawaii, 3 days at Newport, and one night at Sunriver. I stayed up till midnight to book for the next year, seeing plenty of availability. Nope, have to wait till 5 am. I get up at 4:50am and look at availability for the date and room we wanted only to find they were already booked! How is this even possible when you cannot book later than one year out and have to book at 5:00 am. So, somehow the place and rooms were already booked. I have tried two different resorts on two separate days, doing what I was told to do, and was unable to book because somehow they were booked between the hours of midnight and 5:00 am. When I tried booking during those hours I got a red notice stating that you cannot book between these hours and sorry for the inconvenience. This is as far as get during this time.
Needless to say I am left feeling used, unhappy, and angry. What is the point of having V.I. ownership if you cannot book any time during peak days? None of the trips I have taken were during peak days. Because I was unable to book them. Also, during these vacations I was pressured into more sales meetings so I could buy more points or to upgrade. I found this disconcerting to say the least. I did not attend any meetings, though I was asked to attend each and every time I passed the person who greets all V.I. guests. My end decision at this point is to stop paying a single red cent on a timeshare that does not have enough resorts to accommodate the large number of owners.
I highly recommend not to buy into Vacation Internationale if you expect to be able to book vacations when you would like them. Even when playing by their rules. Attend the initial meeting if you must, but buyer beware. Now I must wait two and half hours after only three and half hours of sleep to let them know I'm done and they will not received any more money from us. Which, thanks to being up far too many hours trying to book just one five night stay one year in advance, leaves me very sleep deprived and angry.

I am literally in tears writing this, My husband and I got suckered into come to our presentation and you get a complete free trip.. We did, then we got suckered into buying.. I feel like the biggest idiot EVER. They asked our family size, asked what we like to do, showed us all the amazing thing you can do.. We thought, wow this is amazing and there's so many things we can do within driving distance. We came back a few weeks later to "learn how to use it." Still thinking wow this is great, there show us even more things we can get, but only if we upgrade today and even better we'd own it, we can leave it to our children when we die. So... You guessed it, we did.. Finally a few months after that, we tried to book things, and we could not, they are all booked. We continued trying, even booked things we didn't want to do, just so we could do something.
A year later we get to meet with out people and discuss what we think. Let me tell you did I let them know how terrible it was. Guess what they did, offered more "free trips" and explained, that it was out fault, we were using it wrong. They then go to show us, even more amazing things that we didn't see the first two times, showed us how easy it was, showed us things available that were never there when I tried, so we fell for it.... Ugh, and they said, by the way if you do this now, you will own it forever, we said we thought we already did... Nope I guess not, or maybe we did, who knows what's true and what's not. So we once again signed and STILL CANNOT BOOK ANYTHING, YOU HAVE TO PAY TO GO ON A WAIT LIST AND IF YOU'RE LUCKY YOU MIGHT GET IT... Someone please tell me there's a way for me to get out of this without paying an arm and leg for legal help...

This is a joke. We signed up after the hour-long marketing presentation at the fair (warning #1, they advertise at the fair). We bought - hook, line and sinker - that they actually offered honest vacations. We were given certificates and trusted them. We did not read the fine print. The certificates say Mexico or somewhere on the front - but read the fine print! We found it very expensive - the monthly charges - and very hard to use. Compared to free travel assistance, or rewards programs, VI is a joke. Oh, and when we attempted to cancel, after dumping over 8K and not going anywhere, they continued to bill us. They really need to be regulated.
