Could this be you?
“We’ve started taking all inclusive holidays”
“Our family is grown up now”
“We’re happy holidaying for more weeks now, in a cheaper standard”
“We want to go on cruises”
“We own a Timeshare with lower trading power”
“We are getting older and have stopped travelling abroad”
“Our children do not want to inherit our Timeshare”
There is not only one answer to the question “How do I sell my Timeshare quickly?” Selling Timeshare weeks or points quickly depends on who sells your Timeshare and to whom they sell your Timeshare.
There are various ways to sell a Timeshare:
You can sell a Timeshare for cash
You can exchange a Timeshare for another Timeshare which is more suitable for you
You can upgrade a Timeshare for another Timeshare with your home resort
You can often trade-in a Timeshare for an alternative holiday product
You have to decide which option is best for you.
Most Timeshare owners that want to sell their Timeshare just want to sell for cash.
What to avoid when investigating this option
There are hundreds of Timeshare resale companies in the UK. Certain Timeshare resale companies are “recommended” by other companies who appear to be Timeshare organisations, Timeshare Consumer bodies or Timeshare Trade bodies. Extra caution should be exercised when dealing with these Timeshare resale companies.
“It is guaranteed!” Beware of companies that offer Timeshare resale guarantees. Usually the only guarantees in life are “death & taxes!”
Reasons owners sell…
“It is FREE!” Beware of companies where everything is FREE. Ask yourself, “How does this company make its money?” Every company has to make money to survive. So if it sounds too good to be true, then it usually is!
“It is money for an advert!” Also beware of companies that charge a marketing fee or advertising fee or listing fee to sell your Timeshare for you. This contravenes the 2011 EU legislation which came into force on 23rd February 2011. Please be aware that there are Timeshare resale companies that are members of so-called Timeshare consumer bodies that still contravene this Timeshare legislation. This means that they are breaking the law.
“It is sold! Just pay the legal fees!” One Timeshare resale scam that is relatively common is where a company phones a Timeshare owner and offers to sell their ownership. They do not charge any money initially. Then the Timeshare owner receives another phone call a few weeks later to inform them that their Timeshare is sold. The caller just requires money for “legal fees” or “taxes”. This is completely bogus and should obviously be avoided.
