Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
At a Travel Services Member Conference, former owner Eric Shuman spoke about the positive changes and growth that has occurred over the last year since he gave up ownership of his nationwide travel club.
Shuman said, "Travel Services has added vendors, lowered prices of travel and grew the condo program to heights beyond belief. Membership is up, even in the tough economy, and they've hired 25% more travel agents to meet the demands of members."
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.
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
