When you are in the process of booking a property and you are on the Confirm Booking Screen, you can see the price of the unit as soon as you select Check-in Date. On this screen you can hold the booking for 24 hours for a fee or Book the date you clicked on. When you click the Book button, the property goes on a 15-minute temporary hold. If you don’t wish to proceed and book the property, go to the bottom of the page and click Cancel Reservation. This will remove the 15-minute hold on that property. If you have too many properties on temporary hold, the system won't allow you to book other properties.
The bell at the top right of the page is for NOTIFICATIONS. If you see a red dot next to the bell, then you have a notification. Click the bell to read the notification. Notifications include letting you know you have properties on a temporary hold because you went through the booking process and didn't book it yet. You can cancel this temporary hold by clicking CHECK OUT and then CANCEL 15-MINUTE HOLD. You will then be asked if you want to CANCEL THE RESERVATION. Click that button and the hold will be cancelled.
You might also have a notification about a service fee charge that is overdue. Go to Your Account and click on Service Fees to pay your fees and stay current with your account.

Over the years TAN has worked with several independently owned and operated sales companies. Each sales company has different cancellation policies that are included in your contract that you signed during your purchase. Refer to those provisions in your contract.
There are some contracts that allow cancellations after you have satisfied your financial obligations with the sales company. In those cases, TAN accepts and processes cancellations as non-renewal of benefits with the contractual requirement that the account must be in good standing at the time of cancellation.
We do urge all clients to consider working with us to make the most of the investment. Our program is designed to help clients travel and benefit from the significant savings available through the benefits in the package.
We also allow clients to transfer their packages to family, friends, or charities as another option.
It's important to remember that TAN doesn’t sell weeks and is not a sales company. TAN is the service company and we have fulfillment contracts with sales companies. TAN does not and cannot buy weeks from clients.
TAN is also not involved with refund requests related to the contract and financial obligations with the sales company.
