Thursday, July 24, 2008 "Where To?"
Trade to Travel's Quarterly Newsletter
Leah Powell, President

Letter from the President

Trade To Travel vs. Destination Clubs

 

  Hello, Members of Trade to Travel

      and Owners of Luxury Properties Worldwide,


TTT continues to be in the news.

On June 15, The New York Times recommended the services of TTT (and ONLY the services of TTT when it comes to luxury properties).  Below is a link to their article entitled, "Swapland."

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/15/magazine/15wwln-medium-t.html?_r=1&ref=business&oref=slogin

Following is a paragraph from the article:

"So it’s kind of lame that HomeExchange.com is still crowing over its product placement in “The Holiday,” a 2006 Kate Winslet movie no one remembers.  But I love the easy reverse-search option on Home Exchange, and the database is stuffed.  Digsville.com is pretty cool.  HomeLink-USA.com is a golden oldie; it’s still good.  TradeToTravel.com features deluxe homes; be sure you’ve got the goods before you join."

In other news, I've been participating in an EXTREMELY interesting debate on a website called, "Destination Club Forums."  This is the website on which members of destination clubs, potential members of destination clubs, and executives/staff of destination clubs all come together to debate the pro's and con's of various destination club business models, policies, costs, etc.  About 6 weeks ago, they posted a copy of a TTT press release on their site, so I stepped in to tell that audience about our services.  Since the name of the website is "Destination Club Forums" and since the title of my press release was, "Trade to Travel Poses Threat to Destination Clubs," it was no surprise that the experience was akin to being thrown into the lion's den.  Still, after 13 pages of debate, even one of my most vocal "opponents" called TTT, " a good company built from scratch against all odds."  Once they'd asked every question of me that they could think to ask (peppered with a colorful array of insults), all had to concede that TTT is an extraordinary, unprecedented business model.  If you'd like some interesting and entertaining reading, and/or if you might like to participate in any of discussions on destinationclubforums.com, please check it out:

http://www.destinationclubforums.com/f31/trade-travel-press-release-898.html

On the same website, I also started a debate regarding luxury rentals vs. destination club memberships.  If you'd like to read it (and perhaps participate), here's the link:

http://www.destinationclubforums.com/f2/renting-luxury-properties-vs-membership-destination-1102.html


The reason I wrote a press release called, "TTT Poses Threat to Destination Clubs" isn't because I wanted to do battle with the destination club industry.  I just wanted to get people's attention about how great TTT is and what an amazing value it is compared to ALL other luxury vacation options, including destination clubs.  I figured that a controversial-sounding title would attract the most attention...and attract attention it did.  I'm a little embarrassed about the brash tone of the press release, but again, the idea was to attract attention and that mission was accomplished beyond anything I could've imagined.  I knew I'd have to be prepared to prove every word of the press release, but never thought I'd end up single-handedly debating the most knowledgeable individuals on the planet on the subject of destination clubs.  And I never, in my wildest dreams, could've hoped for it to end the way it did.  On the last page of the debate, something VERY funny happens and the tide finally turns.  You might want to "cheat" and read the last page first.  It's a hoot! 

If you read the debate, you'll see that one of the participants ("DC Traveler"), a member of Ultimate Escapes Elite destination club, has also been a member of TTT for years.  Throughout the debate he has sung the praises of TTT, despite the fact that siding with me was incredibly unpopular and could even possibly impact the future of his destination club.  That speaks volumes.  And I don't even know who he is.  I emailed him early in the debate to thank him for his support, but he didn't respond to my email.  I took this to mean that he wants to remain impartial and objective and I admire him enormously for his integrity.  I hope that one day we'll meet and drink a toast together to our adventures on destinationclubforums.com.

If you read the debate, you'll see that my mother and I are currently considering selling part or all of our stock in TTT.  The reason my mom is interested in selling is that she's finally ready to stop working soooo much and TRAVEL!!  The reason I'm interested in selling part or all of my stock is that I want TTT to grow as large as possible as quickly as possible and be run as flawlessly as possible.  Ideally, I'd love to sell just 10% so that I can hire and train the quality and quantity of staff that I want/need to turn all of my dreams for TTT into reality.  On the other hand, if we receive an offer which would be great not only for my mother and myself, but for all TTT members current and future, then I would be happy to hand over the reins and go PLAY. 

Speaking of PLAY, we have lots of wonderful properties whose owners have let us know they have availabilities over the next 90 days (below is a sample of those availabilities). Please let us know if any are calling your name!


Until next time, all the best,
Leah
