Timeshare owners for several years, this couple thought everything was going well with their property. That was until the resort salespeople introduced them to the timeshare upgrade. If you were to ask Lucas and Sophia about it, they would call it a timeshare downgrade instead.
The following written account is from this couple on their numerous run-ins with timeshare salespeople and how they were constantly deceived by them. We hope their story will help enlighten you about the wrongdoings that are taking place in the timeshare industry. Names and locations have been changed or omitted due to privacy concerns.
“We had owned a timeshare for just a couple of years and during our second visit there, we were approached by salespeople once again. They pushed us to attend an owner’s meeting and made us feel as if it was mandatory so we went to it. Turned out to just be another sales pitch and we had not even gotten to our room and unpacked yet so we were not eager to stay.”
Timeshare upgrade meetings are becoming a more common trend in the industry. It is basically salespeople pushing another timeshare property purchase on you or encouraging you to switch to their points system. They are squeezing out as much money from their clients as possible.
“They told us we could not get our room keys until their presentation was over, even though it was well past the amount of time they said it would take. Upgrading felt like the only option if we wanted to leave that room. Come to find out, it wasn’t even an upgrade because it just made using the timeshare ten times more difficult. ”
Lucas and Sophia were pushed into upgrading to the resort’s points system. This took away the couple’s fixed week that they were supposed to have booked every year, and now they had to schedule their trips using points as the currency. They quickly learned how burdensome this would be as there was an obvious lack of availability.
“For the first few years after the upgrade, we were never able to book any vacations because there was never anything available to choose from. We were still required to make annual maintenance payments even though we hadn’t seen the property in years and did not know what work was being done.”
The couple was struggling financially to keep up with their timeshare costs so they sought out help. After coming across Wesley Financial Group, LLC on Facebook, Lucas and Sophia gave us a call and asked how we could help. Months later and the couple is completely out of their timeshare agreement and even received a refund of close to $2,000 in maintenance fee relief.*
