Bothered by Salespeople on Their Vacation, Mark and Lisa C. Give In to Buying Timeshare

In the beginning, Mark and Lisa’s timeshare experience seemed to be full of benefits left and right. The retired couple was offered lunch and free gifts if they just agreed to attend a 90-minute presentation. Sound familiar? 

The following includes firsthand quotes from Mark and Lisa in regard to their timeshare nightmare. We hope their experience will shed some light on the manipulative strategy that the timeshare industry uses on innocent clients every day. The names of people and companies have been changed or removed due to privacy concerns. 

“It started when we were constantly bothered by the salespeople at a resort. They kept after us and bothered us anytime they saw us. After telling them we did not want to meet, they started to call our room. Once they realized we weren’t going to pick up the phone, they started knocking on our door.”

This shows the persistence that timeshare salespeople use on their clients. They tend to wear them out until, finally, the client feels like it will just be easier to give in. 

“Once we finally met with them, the lies began. They told us that the maintenance fees would never increase. They also failed to mention that once we were both gone, our family would be stuck with the burden of paying off our timeshare. This was not something our family would be interested in, nor would I want them to be stuck with it.”

Uncertain with the proposition sitting in front of them, Mark and Lisa explained to the salesperson that they needed some time to talk it over. 

“When we said we were unsure of moving forward, the entire staff just left us in this room at the table to dwell on it. They didn’t show their faces until they realized that we had agreed to move forward. It was very uncomfortable. They keep you there to the level of exhaustion, and once they have you at that level, they know you’re vulnerable.”

Fast forward a few years later, and now Mark and Lisa have seen increasing maintenance fees along with broken promises about the resorts’ amenities. Mark has also experienced a setback that has left him unable to travel. 

“After Mark’s massive heart attack, the cardiologist advised him that he should not travel. Between that and the fact that we can’t afford timeshare fees on top of our medical bills and mortgage, this is just a nightmare. We need out of this financial struggle, we never had any intentions of buying a timeshare, to begin with.”
