We recently received this enquiry from a Mr B Symes and it seems to be fairly typical of both the types of complaints and cries for help from unfortunate owners looking for a solution to their timeshare problems.
Do you feel that you have similar experiences?
If you do don’t worry you are not alone, there are thousands of people out there looking for timeshare help and advice.
“Since 2010 this has been an ongoing saga for me and I bet there’s plenty others out there feeling just like me. I seem to ask myself the same question over and over how do I get out of my timeshare. I have had many great times with my timeshare however, I simply cannot afford the ever-increasing maintenance fees. I spoke to the resort to ask how I could get out of a timeshare contract they seemed to tell me great stories of how they could offer me alternative holiday options and there was no option to dispose of timeshare unless I paid them more (I felt this was a plan to get me to spend more money and to still have something I didn’t want). After our “meeting” I decided to take it upon myself to get myself out of this horrible mess I got in because it was plain to see the resort were happy enough to keep me in the position I was in as I was paying the maintenance fees every year, I decided to try and sell my timeshare to start with I posted on it gumtree and eBay. I even considered giving it away for free but its not that simple to get rid of timeshare I have found out. I have received calls recently from company’s offering to sell my timeshare for advertising fees my phone doesn’t stop ringing from these guys but it seems to me they are wolves in sheep’s clothing. After my trust was breached when I originally signed this dreadful contract I don’t know where to turn or who to trust and I don’t want this maintenance fee bill every year for the rest of my life.”
