As a owner and former business builder with Coastal Vacation (CV) memberships and a current distributor for Global Resorts Network (GRN), I feel I am authorized to speak about the comparison of the two. I will let you know right now that I would recommend Global Resorts Network over Coastal Vacation. The number one reason being that the product and service of the GRN is far superior than CV. Think about who your target market would be for both these product; households with children that enjoy to travel. When I was with CV (just over a year ago) the membership was offering discounts on vacant rooms at hotels. During peak season; when families have the time to take their children on vacations, it is difficult to book and many of the cards & certificates would not allow you to book during peak season with CV. GRN on the other hand, pre-reserves rooms at luxury resorts meaning you can book anytime during the 52 weeks in a year. NO BLACKOUTS. Another benefit that GRN has over CV is the fact that there is no membership fees. The maximum initial investment you will pay for a GRN membership is $2995 compared to the $12,995 (if I remember correctly) with CV membership. After that there are no ongoing cost with GRN, however if you want to get updated cards & phone numbers etc with CV that will cost you $90/year. Even if you decided to get the basic Gold membership through GRN you pay $1495. Even though this is a cheapest membership you still have international access to luxury resorts, cruises, hotels and more. With CV, there level 1 membership is $1320 and that limits you vacations to only North America. CV memberships sends you a binder with membership cards and certificates where you must go online or call around to find yourself a discounts. With GRN you have online access to book all your vacations from one convenient locations with travel professionals as your 24/7 customer support should you need their assistance. GRN's compensation plan allow you to earn commissions from certain members below you to unlimited depth and width, always. After training sales are completed with CV, you are no longer earning any commissions after you spent the time training. GRN offers availability at luxury resorts many of them 4 & 5 star timeshare resorts. Have fun trying to secure a location like that with CV. Already they are selling unused hotel rooms. If you already own a timeshare you can list it with GRN and earn 100% commission from whomever buys that week. Also with some CV vacation offers you may have to watch a timeshare presentation! These are just some of the benefits GRN has over CV. Mind you I have not promoted CV for about a year so things might have slightly changed. However GRN memberships have been successfully selling without a pay plan for over 20 years. CV is an organization of people who have been selling their product with a pay plan for 12 years. Now some folks (CV distributors) may not like this post however as an unsatisfied CV distributor I feel a sort of obligation to point out my experience. Note I'm not hating on CV as I was able to sell the memberships, however I found it difficult to use the membership at a time that was suitable for me...which was peak season!
