Clarissa and her small family enjoyed their timeshare at first. They were able to accommodate themselves comfortably and without hassle from their timeshare company. They perfectly enjoyed their typical vacation option in Pigeon Forge, TN, for what they paid...at first.
Below is a firsthand, written account from Clarissa L. about her continuously frustrating timeshare experience. We hope Clarissa’s story will help shed a light on the deceptive practices of the timeshare sales industry. Names have been changed or redacted due to privacy concerns.
Clarissa and her husband originally purchased their timeshare unit in 1997. It was a very pressure-filled sales meeting, but the couple figured they could make it work with their small family at the time. However, their family growth and the changeover to the ‘points systems’ of their timeshare company in the early 2000’s quickly revealed just how inflexible her timeshare option was.
“In 1998, much to our surprise, we became parents all over again in our 40’s. We remained committed to vacationing throughout the U.S. It was a little later on that we were advised to switch over to the points system in order to get to the various destinations.”
They were hesitant, but Clarissa and her family were ultimately required by their timeshare agreement to switch over to this new points system. Life kept throwing the family curveballs, and Clarissa’s husband unfortunately died of heart failure when their youngest child had just turned nine years old. Clarissa then felt overwhelmed and trapped by the excruciating timeshare fees that she continued to pay monthly, with only her income to support her family as a single mother.
She had attended two more timeshare ‘member update meetings’ before Clarissa felt that she HAD to find a way out of this personal hell.
“After 23 years of loyalty, I was asked to spend another $39k so that I could be handed off to another representative with more paperwork at my last meeting. I’ve been lied to so many times and pressured into upgrading that it became just ridiculous.”
