Eddy & Bonnie’s Timeshare ‘Vacations’ Were Never Very Relaxing

“I feel like everytime we utilize our timeshare, we will have to attend a presentation session and again be pressured into acquiring more points. People go on vacation to relax and enjoy time with family and friends, not to be pulled away from our family during a vacation to attend more presentations for hours at a time.”

Below is a written account of the timeshare ordeal that Eddy and Bonnie B. experienced. We hope their written account will enlighten some of the tactics that the timeshare industry often uses on good, unsuspecting people. Names of people have been changed and/or redacted for privacy reasons.

Eddy and Bonnie C. were enjoying their vacation in Aruba when they were approached about attending a short presentation in exchange for two $100 gift cards to be used while on their vacation. They agreed to attend the presentation and scheduled for the following day. 

At the first presentation in Aruba, the couple was told that their timeshare points purchased could be used at multiple locations around the world, across other timeshare companies. They repeatedly declined offers, but the couple had been at the meeting for over three hours. As the third representative kept applying the pressure, Eddy and Bonnie decided to “try” the timeshare for one year and see how it worked between their personal and professional schedules. 

When the couple used their timeshare option while returning to Aruba approximately one year later, they sat through yet another timeshare presentation that was only supposed to last 90 minutes. This meeting lasted longer than 3.5 hours, and the couple was pressured into purchasing more points because they were told that it was a great investment to pass down to family. 

“The second presentation lasted just as long as the first one. We kept telling them we weren’t interested in purchasing. They told us that the price was only good for that time and if we decided later to buy, the price would be higher than the price they were quoting now. After another 3.5 hour pressure session, we ended up purchasing more points to just get out of there and enjoy some of the vacation at least.” 

The couple utilized their timeshare one final time when they traveled to Hawaii a couple of years later. Bonnie had lost her grandmother, and Eddy had lost his mother in the couple of years since they’d last used their timeshare option, and the couple felt like a nice vacation was definitely needed after so many losses in their family. However, it was on this trip that they realized the pressure and constant sales tactics they would face every time they utilized their timeshare. 

“The Hawaii trip was another pressure session to buy. It’s a continuous cycle of buying points and upgrading to use the program where we can’t get to destinations or they are only available during times we are not available. This whole program had become a huge financial burden for us.” 

Eddy and Bonnie reached out to Wesley Financial Group, LLC (WFG), some time ago, requesting assistance in terminating their timeshare agreement. It took months of back and forth communication with the timeshare company, but the couple is finally timeshare free thanks to assistance from WFG!*
