Property Insurance Assessment Surcharge
Effective December 1, 2023, Travel Advantage Network (TAN) will be adding a $100 surcharge to each reservation The surcharge is due to the skyrocketing cost of property insurance for both property owners and HOAs. These fees are passed along to TAN as we sign new leases and retain properties in our portfolio. The surcharge only covers a third of this increase, but it's critical to help us offset this unavoidable expense we are incurring as we continue to provide you with a wide range of properties for your vacation at a low cost.
Since taking over as president in 2017, my goal has been to provide you with the best service possible, and I don't see this surcharge as a failure, but a necessary step in that direction. Your purchase remains incredibly valuable—since 2007, the average cost of a retail vacation has gone up by 193%.
Once the insurance landscape improves, TAN promises to remove it immediately. We are optimistic that'll happen sooner rather than later, but we are hopeful.
Your travel, even with this surcharge, remains an immense value when you compare it to the retail market, and we are working as hard as we can to continue to provide you with quality destinations at a low cost to you. We are taking the brunt of the cost, but we do need your help.
Thank you for your understanding and support during these challenging times.
