Find out your Timeshare Release options
Before deciding what to do, you first need independent advice about the options that are available to you, so please complete the Timeshare Release Wizard now - or call one of our friendly advisors on 0800 610 1535.
The Timeshare Resorts & Groups rely on the fact that most of their customers will keep quietly accepting & paying fee increases without making a fuss... and we find that many of the people who contact us have been wanting to get out of Timeshare for a while, but didn't think they could. The most common phrase we hear is: "We wish we'd contacted you before...".
So, for your peace of mind, don't suffer in silence any more - please take the first step today!
Based on the information you provide and the Timeshare Resort/Group you are with, we will then be able to outline the main options you have for releasing yourself from Timeshare and ridding yourself and your family of long-term Timeshare Fee liabilities. In addition, should you wish to take it further - we can also advise as to whether you may have grounds to claim money back on the basis of mis-selling or other unfair practices.
Please note: It is quite likely that you have already spoken to your Timeshare Resort/Group about disposing of your Timeshare - but we would strongly advise you to be very cautious about any advice they offer you. It is important to remember that, as far as they are concerned, you are committed to paying them annual fees (subject to increases that they set each year) for many years to come. Your contract may represent tens, or maybe hundreds of thousands of pounds of revenue to them over time. You are therefore unlikely to receive unbiased, independent advice from them, as they would much rather keep you as a customer who quietly pays them endless fees! To draw an analogy - if you we're trying to give up smoking, you wouldn't ask the Marlboro Man how to go about it...
What Happens Next?
Once you've made contact and seen the options you have available, you can decide how to proceed, safe in the knowledge that you are receiving independent, expert advice. Some of our customers then choose to try and arrange their own Timeshare disposals, while others prefer us to make the arrangements on their behalf. We look forward to being of service!
About Timeshare Release
During the Timeshare sales boom of the 80s & 90s, potential buyers were lured in by the promise of affordable exotic holidays, flexible exchange programmes and the impression that Timeshare would be a valuable "investment".
In an industry with little or no regulation, high pressure sales tactics were rife and contract smallprint was often glossed over and explained away by sharp salespeople.
Many Timeshare buyers were therefore unaware that they were actually making significant, long term financial commitments on behalf of themselves and their families.
To find out how you can escape the Timeshare Trap please complete the short Timeshare Release Wizard now.
The Timeshare Trap
For many Timeshare owners, annual maintenance fees were barely considered token amounts in the early "honeymoon period" of ownership.
However, year-on-year increases imposed by the resorts over time now mean that the maintenance fees have risen to become substantial sums.
Owners are also facing the prospect of ongoing yearly fee increases and realising that they (and their families) are often committed to long term contracts for generations to come.
Please try our Future Fees Calculator to estimate your liabilities over the term of your Timeshare contract, based on an annual increase of 7.5%.
If you're concerned about rising fees and how to escape the Timeshare Trap, please contact us today.

Mr Steve R, Middlesex - RCI/Hollywood Mirage
“We 'swapped ‘another place in Tenerife for this in order to move to the points system. Since then, getting exchanges to desirable resorts proves almost impossible, irrespective of in-season or off-season.”
Mrs Rachael B, Yorkshire - RCI Europe
“I purchased my timeshare in 1999 and have been a timeshare member ever since. More often than not, I have not be able to go where I wanted and have ended up giving a few weeks to Friends, etc to book somewhere they wanted in order not to lose the weeks. I have then stayed in a hotel!! I am desperately trying to get rid of the timeshare and am now paying Timeshare Shop in Manchester to get rid of it for me.”
