Kyle and Dani H. were told that owning a timeshare would save them money when it came to taking vacations. After just a couple of years of owning a timeshare though they began to realize it was doing the opposite, it was costing them more money than they ever paid for a vacation. They tried to make the most out of this unsettling situation, but yet time and time again, their timeshare purchase proved to be worthless.
Below is a firsthand, written account from Kyle and Dani describing their futile timeshare experience. We hope their story will help shed a light on the mistrustful practices of the timeshare sales industry. Names have been changed or omitted due to privacy concerns.
What started as just a day spent shopping at the mall, soon turned into a nightmare. This is where Kyle and Dani were first approached by timeshare sales representatives and encouraged to attend a presentation of theirs in exchange for receiving gift cards.
“They were so convincing and really did make it sound like a timeshare would be a great idea for us. We told them we like to take a vacation every year and they said we would save so much money if we owned a timeshare. We were still unsure about it at first because it was pretty expensive but then the pressure started. By the end, we said yes just to get out of there.”
When Kyle and Dani showed any hesitation, the timeshare sales representatives would kick the pressure up another level. Before too long the meeting was approaching the three-hour mark when it was initially advertised as only lasting for 60 minutes. Kyle and Dani were worn out, to say the least.
“I don’t think we were in the right headspace when we purchased the timeshare. They kept us in that little room for so long while lying to us until we couldn’t think straight. But that didn’t stop us from trying to make the best out of it all. The problem was how difficult it was to use the timeshare. There never seemed to be available dates for us to take, plus the maintenance fees were getting ridiculous with how high they were getting.”
As you can tell, their timeshare experience was nowhere near what was presented to them at that first presentation. Instead, they were facing rapidly rising fees while also missing out on their annual family vacations.
“It was getting harder and harder to come up with the money every month to pay for the timeshare. It became this terrible burden that we were carrying. This timeshare was costing us everything that we owned just to try and keep up with the monthly payments for it. We did not want this to negatively impact anyone else in our family.”
This feeling of the timeshare eventually also affecting Kyle and Dani’s family was what pushed them into finally finding a way out. From their own research, the couple knew getting out of their timeshare agreement would be no easy task. Which is why they decided to work with Wesley Financial Group, LLC (“WFG”), one of the leaders of the timeshare cancellation industry.
“Working with WFG definitely made us feel better about our situation. They were easy to work with and would always listen to us about our concerns or questions. The whole process was a lot quicker than we expected too. They were hardworking and caring, which we greatly appreciated.”
With the help and guidance of WFG, Kyle and Dani’s timeshare agreement was terminated and they were relieved of $30,000 in timeshare mortgage and maintenance debt.*
“Getting rid of this burden has been a huge relief taken off the shoulders of my family. I honestly feel like we can finally live again! Thank you so much WFG!”
