Almost a Year Later, Eric Shuman Reflects on His Decision to Sell Travel Services Center MyTSOnline for 36 Million

Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) June 14, 2013

Having been in the Travel Business and Timeshare Industry for over 21 years, Eric's expertise and passion for vacations is unsurpassed. Now, a year after he's done, he reflects back to September 2012, when Eric sold his Travel Club to a group of private investors for 36 million dollars.

A native of Philadelphia, Eric grew up wanting to travel the world. Yet every time he shared this dream with others, he was told that "only rich people travel." To which Eric would then say, "Then I guess I have to do something about that as well." And he did.

In a span of over 13 years, Eric opened up Travel Club offices in over 20 different cities nationwide including Napa, CA., Fresno, CA., Las Vegas, NV., Miami Beach, FL., Austin, TX., Philadelphia PA. , San Francisco, CA., Scottsdale, AZ., and Valencia, CA.

Never heard of a Travel Club before? Well, don't worry, it's a fairly new concept, and yet has been around for over a decade. The reason most people never heard of Travel Clubs is that they don't typically advertise in normal media, such as television, newspapers and magazines. Rather they'll invite couples to be their guest at a 90 minute presentation and offer them some form of a "travel gift" as a way of compensation for their time and consideration.

Unfortunately, there have been a lot of unscrupulous companies that have given the travel industry a bad name. Eric's goal was to try and change that reputation, and show everyone that it is possible to run a Travel Club that is both reputable and profitable. Eric says, "Even timeshare, at some of the best resorts, have left a bad taste with many consumers. I like to think we're the next generation of timeshare. We've kept all the positive aspects of timeshare, and removed all the negatives."

Eric Shuman's Travel Club had over 100,000 members. They get amazing discounts on any and all travel, with the exception of airfare. The airlines are so competitive that margins are small; there's just not a lot of savings to get. "We're a full service travel agent. We'll do all the research, book you an amazing vacation, and save you a ton of money," Eric says. "I like to think we're old school. Remember when all the travel agents were in the malls? They were professionals we'd all look up to with respect. Now everyone thinks they can do it themselves, on the internet. Unfortunately, they end up with lousy vacations, spending way too much on their accommodations, and have no money left over to have fun, go out to nice restaurants, and buy something fun to remember their trip. But not our members, they're spoiled, and I wouldn't have it any other way."

Eric spoke at a member dinner, "My belief was that too many kids were growing up without ever going on a vacation. And with the economy, many people just can't afford them. Some of my best memories in life were going on vacation with my parents. I'll never forget them as long as I live. And yet I hear too many people say that they just quit vacationing, that it's a luxury that they just can't afford. After I heard that, that's when I said, I had to do something about it."
