KNOWLEDGE IS POWER ... Sir Francis Bacon         
Started in May of 2008 as a fantastic way for TUG members to participate in this great community!  The TUG member banners are sent from TUG member to TUG member as they vacation at timeshare resorts, and during that vacation the member will sign and take a photo of the banner!

TUG Banner Ads .. click for details on this banner program

The current status of the banner and discussion about the banner shipping etc, as well as how to get your name on the list to recieve the banner for your vacation can be found here on the forums: TUG Member Banner Travels the World!     or you can email me at tug@tug2.net to get your name on the list!

Note that as of 11/2013 we have incorporated our TUG Member Banner photos using Picasaweb/Google, you can now see a Global Map of the global journey of the TUG member banner!

To submit your photo to be included on the map, all you have to do is email the photo (no size limits!) to photos@tug2.com and put the resort in the subject line!

Why become a TUG member?

There is an extended TUG resort reviews database here on this web site available only to TUG members. There are over 4000 resorts covered by this database now and growing weekly. The reviews also include pictures of the resorts, general resort information and a list of owners' email addresses who are willing to answer additional questions regarding the resorts not covered by the detailed reviews.   This is a quick way to see how our members rate the resorts which they have actually stayed at. It has become a valuable source of information to use when planning for exchanges.
