A University of Central Florida ran an experiment and their findings showed that 85% of timeshare owners later regretted their purchase. That is a huge amount of timeshare owners who want to set themselves free from their obligations, if you are one of them, you are not alone.
There are a lot of people very happy with their timeshare and happily use it, but for the 85% that are unhappy, here are some steps to follow.
STEP 1: communicate with the resort to see if the issues can be dealt with. What we find is that a lot of the time, the resort is unable to accommodate owners due to false promises and lack of availability.
STEP 2: Communicate with the resort to see if they offer an option to sell the timeshare back to them, it is 99% never possible.
STEP 3: Sell your timeshare independently – be very careful with this if looking online there are unscrupulous companies offering this service and not fulfilling on their promises. Furthermore, you could try to advertise your timeshare of sites like craigslist or eBay but the success rate for selling this way is extremely low, you will actually see people offering their timeshare for just $1 to simply remove themselves from the burden of yearly maintenance fees.
This is a screenshot from the eBay site.
STEP 4: You can always try communicating with your resort to see if there is an option to simply hand it back but be ready for a negative response. Timeshare resorts survive mainly on annual maintenance fees, so the more difficult they make it for you as an owner, the more monies they can hold on to.
STEP 5: The next step is to look into options with the help of a third party. This is where European Consumer Claims come in.
