We were sold a timeshare by Club Class in 2011 when we thought it would be a good purchase. We paid £2,462.89 on our Barclaycard. It was 3 years later that we realised we no longer wanted to keep it. After looking at our options and trying to cancel the contract

Selling your timeshare

The most visited page on a certain timeshare users' support website is entitled 'How to Sell Your Timeshare'. This is for a good reason. Most timeshare users seeking support are actually seeking help in ridding themselves from what has turned into a millstone around their neck. Most of the advice given to

Contacting timeshare clubs

If you have grown disillusioned with your timeshare experience, perhaps the logical thing to do is to contact your club to try to find a resolution to any problems you may have.

My partner and I were sold a timeshare from TFS Concierge SL in Tenerife. It always seems like a good idea when you're there in the situation, listening to sales people claim that they're doing you a favour by offering you such a good deal which just happened to only

Timeshare debt collectors

Timeshare clubs have had to resort to debt collection agencies in order to intimidate people into paying the maintenance contract fees.

How to get out of your timeshare without losing your home

10:09 09/09/2015

Getting involved in timeshare can be an extremely expensive exercise. Here at Timeshare Help, we have sadly had a number of clients who have got themselves so far into timeshare debt that they find themselves losing their cars, their homes and even their marriages. We have had people approach us who

Timeshare transparency

15:09 08/09/2015

Transparency is not exactly the first word most would use in connection with timeshare. The industry is known for its lack of clear information, to timeshare owners and other stakeholders. A number of timeshare clubs refuse to tell the truth about their financial states, presenting themselves as stable and even thriving.

Diamond Resorts sold us our timeshare in 2005 and we were then convinced to upgrade our membership in 2007 because we could never manage to book the time that we'd paid for. We wanted to cancel our membership after a few years of having trouble every time we attempted to book
