There are safe ways to cancel your timeshare. Follow the rules to avoid the traps!
Tired of paying rising timeshare maintenance fees? On average they go up by 8%+ per year!
Were you tricked into buying a timeshare by a slick salesman?
Do you wish you could vacation elsewhere but you are ‘locked in’ to the same resort for the next 20 years?
If so, you share these stressful feelings with over 9 million other Americans who have purchased a timeshare and are locked into an unfair contract.
Luckily there are safe and legal ways out of your costly timeshare contract.
But buyer beware, many of these timeshare exit companies use similar tactics to the ones that sold you a timeshare in the first place.
They will try and dupe you just like the timeshare company did when you bought it.
One woman told us that she had spent $22,000 trying to get rid of her timeshare, and after 12 months, nothing had been accomplished
So how do you spot these scams before it’s too late?
The Top 5 Things To Consider When Selecting A Timeshare Cancellation Firm
1. No Payment Upfront or Escrow
If your timeshare cancellation firm is somehow unable to get you out of your contract, you don’t want to be stuck paying them. Make sure they have an Escrow option which ensures they don’t get paid until your timeshare is completely cancelled!
2. They Should Tell You To Call Your Resort
Your timeshare exit firm should begin the process by explaining that it’s possible to get out of your timeshare without paying them! Sometimes the resort will offer a voluntary give back program and your firm should walk you through this to see if it’s possible before they give you a quote on their fees. Although this is rare – it’s worth a shot!
3. Track Record Of Success
Make sure that your firm has been around the block a few times! Everyone and their dog decided that it was a good idea to start a cancellation firm, but only a few firms have been around long enough to truly know the industry well. Make sure the firm you chose has a track record of success and great testimonials!
4. Consumer Advocacy
Most cancellation firms employ salespeople, not consumer advocates. Does the representative try to ‘close you’ at the end of the free consultation, or pester you every few days with phone calls or emails? An actual advocate will encourage you to take your time and do your homework.
5. Better Business Bureau Accredited
Any company you work with your cancellation should be BBB accredited with at least an ‘A’ rating. It’s easy to lose your accreditation, especially in the timeshare cancellation industry, so it’s good to check out the firm on the BBB to be sure they have great reviews and a solid rating.
