Been losing tons of holiday rebooks through Wyndham's online reservation system- so decided to run a little test cooperating with several other brokers.
When cancelling a reservation, it appears to show light green on the calendar, but never gives you an opportunty to rebook the dates. In the past, this could occur when the reservation was taken by another member who simply clicked the mouse a little quicker! However, now it appears that the system is only showing that "light green calendar" to the actual member who cancels- while never allowing that reservation to show up for other owners to book online.
Yet somehow- those reservations are disappearing as if they've been booked by another owner!
Cancelled four prime spring reservations today while on a conference call with three other Wyndham owners who were entering the exact search parameters for what I cancelled.. None of them saw any of the reservations show up as available. Yet, in each case the online system showed me a green calendar for a moment but never gave me the opportunity to rebook it.
With all the developer sale weasels who have been upgrading Club Wyndham owners to VIP purchases via the promise of "cancel and rebook", sure seems like another example of timeshare bait and switch to me.. Of course, rumors are still running rampant that an April deadline is still in place to effectively do away with cancel and rebook tactics entirely by implementing a wait list.
And developers wonder why timeshares continue to have a negative public perception....
