Committed to Providing Amazing Vacations at Incredible Prices
Jim, was first exposed to the timeshare industry when he purchased Worldmark points back in 1995. He was excited about the idea that his family of seven could now afford to stay in nice resorts instead of campgrounds. Within less than a year, he became a full-time sales person for Worldmark, which is now owned by Wyndham. He sold timeshare for over ten years and became a top sales person in the company. However, he learned first- hand the difficulties in getting the resort weeks he wanted when he wanted to go, not to mention the ever-climbing maintenance fees he had to pay. At this point, he like most, wanted out of his timeshare. Nor did he want to sell timeshare anymore. After getting out of his timeshare, he developed a passion for traveling the US and helping people learn about how they could travel at deep discounts without having to own a timeshare.
Douglas Jackson has been in the travel industry since 2000 when he started working with Trendwest. It was here that he met Jim Louthan. Together, they worked at different Worldmark Resorts and for various travel clubs, selling discount travel. In 2007, they started their own company to offer the best products available on the market. An adventurer by nature, and with fun as a major motivator, Doug loves to travel and provide those opportunities for others. He’s enjoyed quality family time when away from life’s day-to-day cares. He wants to make “Living the Good Life” affordable and within the reach of everyone.
