Lack of timeshare cost transparency

A number of timeshare clubs and even resale companies think it is best to avoid mentioning costs until they already have you on the hook.

Think back to when you signed your timeshare contract. Were you shown all the incredible places you could go and told that signing up would save you money? Did they actually mention what it would cost you until you were alone with a sales representative?

If this was your experience, you are not the only one.

The entire timeshare industry is very cagey about costs – this includes companies which promise they can get you out of your timeshare.

If you are approached by a company offering to either transfer your timeshare to themselves or to get rid of your timeshare contract altogether, Timeshare Help would encourage you to be very cautious.

Reputable firms don’t have to cold call consumers. They will also be upfront with you about how much they charge for their services.

If you want to get out of your timeshare contract, it is obviously best to find a specialist team to do that on your own rather than let them find you. That way you can properly evaluate your options.

If a company does not want to tell you how much they will charge you for getting you out of your timeshare contract, there may be cause for concern.

They may persuade you to attend a presentation on their services, where they will try to get you interested before they hit you with their costs.

A number of industry experts have warned consumers not to trust firms which choose to withhold their costs until you have been convinced into agreeing to their services. By neglecting to inform you immediately what they charge, they are leaving out important information which could alter your decision to choose that firm.

They are no different from a timeshare sales team which only informs you of the cost of a timeshare contract once you’ve already been brainwashed into wanting what they are offering.

A huge amount of firms claiming to get you out of your timeshare contract will neglect to mention costs because they have something else to offer you during their sales pitch. Perhaps they will offer you a new purchase or perhaps they will tie you into a contract with them for a lengthy amount of time.

Timeshare Help is proud to be different from other companies claiming to do what we do. We will always inform you of what our services cost during our very first conversation.

We could offer you our maintenance contract termination service, which we charge £2,000 plus VAT for. This means that you and your children will never have to pay another annual maintenance fee again. Because most timeshare contracts now have perpetuity on them, you and your heirs will be expected to pay this annual fee forever.

Timeshare Help can offer you the complete protection of our specialist lawyers, however, so you won’t have to feel threatened by any action your club attempts to take.

Timeshare Help also offers a no win no fee claim service for clients who want to be refunded the money they have paid into bad timeshare ‘investments’. For this service, we charge 25% plus VAT of any money won back.

When you know the overall costs of your actions, you can make a well-informed choice. Contact Timeshare Help if you think we could offer you what you need to get out of your timeshare contract.
