CRIVacation.com Unveils New Name and Web Offerings
NEW HAMPSHIRE - The "Pay as You Play"TM vacation resource, Condominium Resorts International, LLC. and Vacation Getaway Travel, Inc. today unveiled their new name. Effective April 15, the company is now called, Club Resort Intervals, LLC. The name change coincides with the launch of the new company website, www.crivacation.com. Michael Munro, founder, explains, "We are proud to provide our members with unparalleled vacation services. Our new name clearly reflects the nature of our business and our research indicates that it is appealing and meaningful to our customer base. With our new web offering, members can now go online and at the touch of a button, enjoy the convenience of real-time, vacation planning. They tell us where they want to go and our professional staff makes it happen. We have twenty (20) years experience traveling members into resort properties worldwide."
There are many websites available for travel planning and consumers can find themselves in clubs that do not have the contracts, nor the industry experience to confirm resort property or all-inclusive vacation packages. Usually, these same consumers spend an inordinate amount of time, money and frustration getting the vacation they want. Through Club Resort Intervals, members go online to www.crivacation.com and begin a search. The search can be by region or a resort property name. A new screen will take the member to that location and the member will then have the opportunity to begin the process of booking a vacation or viewing the site for more information. Once the member begins the booking process, the Club Resort Intervals customer support staff search availability of dates and confirm the reservations for the customer. If no matches are available, the staff will do a complete search for the customer and exhaust every avenue to make those vacation dreams come true.
When members book travel online at crivacation.com, they realize many benefits: Low ticketing fees, no hassles and fewer out-of-pocket expenses. Club Resort Intervals does all the work so members can reach their vacation destination, kick back and relax. Unlike other clubs or resort programs where travelers pay tens of thousands of dollars plus maintenance fees to own a resort home which may be used one or two weeks out of the year, members enjoy "Pay as You Play" TM. Through "Pay as You Play" TM, members simply pay a low membership initiation fee and annual membership fees of $99.00 and receive reduced travel costs. They can go anywhere in the world as opposed to being limited to the same location and property year after year. James Brown of New Hampshire applauds the service and new website at crivacation.com, "I have been a member of Club Resort Intervals and Vacation Getaway Travel since 1987 and it has allowed me to enjoy easy travel arrangements at the best properties year after year. The time and cost savings are so great that we can afford to take vacations with our whole family. The new website really makes booking travel convenient." Members enjoy vacations at hot destinations such as Disney World, Hawaii, Cancun, Europe, Asia&they can even take a cruise. Accommodations are always at the finest resort properties, always the lowest pricing.
