Shortly after the purchase of their timeshare, Vince and his wife, Taylor, were affected by a number of health issues that prevented them from being able to travel as often as they had hoped. One would think a company would want the best for their clients in a situation like this and would be willing to work with them and accommodate the couple to the best of their abilities. Well, let’s not forget this is the timeshare industry we’re talking about.
The following is a first-hand account from Vince and his wife on their terrible experience with their timeshare. We hope it will shed some light on the deceitful ploys the industry utilizes on innocent people. Names and locations have been changed and/or redacted for privacy reasons.
Vince and Taylor’s timeshare experience began just like almost everyone else's, and that is with an intimidating and pushy sales presentation.
“We were convinced by persistent timeshare salespeople and were tempted by the idea of vacationing wherever and whenever at an affordable price. We were offered a number of discounts and coupons during the presentation and to think of it, we were even offered a free breakfast. Well, that promise of being able to use our timeshare anywhere at any time turned out to be a very expensive lie!”
Enticed with the idea of having the freedom to travel anywhere at any time, Vince and Taylor bought everything the timeshare representatives were selling to them that day. Over time, though, they began to realize that this wasn't exactly the investment they thought it was.
“While in the military, we enjoyed taking family trips between station moves and thought a timeshare would be beneficial. Now that our children are grown up, it no longer makes sense to keep it anymore. We also did not want to risk the financial burden being passed down to our children later down the road. What we thought to be a luxury asset, turned out to be a dud.”
No longer pleased with the service of their timeshare company, along with experiencing health issues, the married couple thought it was time to get out from under it while they still could. But they soon found out that timeshare companies are not the most helpful to work with.
“For one, we were barely ever able to use the timeshare since purchasing it. Vince was diagnosed with cancer not long after we bought a timeshare. All the side effects he was enduring made it impossible for us to travel like we were hoping to. Our timeshare company was not sympathetic to our situation whatsoever and any help from them was a rarity.”
That’s when Vince and Taylor contacted us here at Wesley Financial Group, LLC (“WFG”), to help them get out of their timeshare agreement. We successfully terminated their timeshare and eliminated any future debt they would have incurred from maintenance and assessment fees.* Now living timeshare-free, they are not constantly stressed out and can instead focus on what’s important to them.
