Timeshare Cancellation Letters That Actually Work

We often make impulsive choices that end up being a big mistake. Why should you be stuck in a contract that you don’t even want?

That’s where a bad timeshare cancellation letter becomes harmful. A bad letter will actually make it harder for you to cancel your contract. A good timeshare cancellation letter, on the other hand, will help a lot. An airtight, legally-strong letter won’t always guarantee cancellation (as that depends on the contract that you signed), but it will certainly increase your chances.

If you are missing something in your letter, including too much unnecessary information, or taking your time to get to the point – your cancellation process will likely take longer.

A good cancellation letter doesn’t have to be complex. In fact, it actually shouldn’t be. A good timeshare cancellation letter is simple and provides everything that a company needs in order for them to cancel your contract.

Here are some tips that will help you write a good cancellation letter.

Use a Clear Subject Line

A good letter won’t be of any use if it’s not read. The later it is read, the later the timeshare company will be able to take action.

If you provide a clear subject line on your letter and envelope, the individual sorting letters will be able to tell which department your letter should go to straight away. You skip the queue and are closer to seeing results.

You can use “Timeshare Cancellation Request” as a subject line, for instance. Other clear subject lines include: “Timeshare Rescission Letter” and “Request to Cancel My Timeshare Contract.”

Provide Everything That’s Needed

Stating that you want to cancel a contract will not cancel your contract unless the person on the other side knows what contract you are referring to. You are not the only one that has a contract signed with that company. It’s also likely you’re not the only one writing a timeshare cancellation letter.

If you don’t provide information that helps them find your contract, then you’ll end up simply delay this entire process.

In the introduction, you need to state when you purchased your timeshare. You also need to provide the name of the timeshare along with order number and name. You aren’t the only one that purchased on that day.

This information is vital. Since letters don’t come in at the same time they are sent, not including even one piece of information could result in your cancellation being delayed by several days or weeks. This is especially true with bigger companies.

The company won’t know who you are and what timeshare you own until you provide all the details. Insert your email address in your cancellation letter too. Provide all of this information because otherwise your cancellation might simply get delayed. If this happens, you’ll end up stuck with the timeshare for longer than if you had simply done nothing.

Before you even include any of these, you need to be direct.

Be Direct

Don’t wait until the very end of your timeshare rescission letter to state that you want to cancel your contract. You need to know your purpose and let the company know straight away. Don’t talk about the mistakes that company made for five paragraphs, only to mention that you would like to cancel at the end of your letter. People tend to get confused by writing. Don’t make it any easier for them.

Based on WOBS research, 61% of readers find that what they read is unclear. If something is unclear, then it’s a lot harder to find out what the reader is seeking.

Be Bold

You won’t get results if you aren’t bold. If you use unconfident language, the timeshare company will notice and likely use it against you. Words that aren’t confident need to go. “Could you perhaps cancel my timeshare” should not be used. It doesn’t sound confident. Instead, try something like “I’m writing you a timeshare contract cancellation letter. Please rescind my contract immediately.”

Being bold does not mean that you have to be mean. It merely means that you need to be confident without being insulting.

“I would like to request an immediate cancellation of my timeshare contract.” That sounds confident. “Immediate” is used to add urgency and let the company know you mean business.

Don’t stop there. State that you request a full refund of your deposit. If you’d like a refund, but only mention that you want to cancel your contract, you simply won’t get a refund. After stating that, it is also okay to provide reasons for why you want to cancel.

While you don’t always have to state the reasons behind your cancellation, it is often helpful. In some cases, it is even necessary to state why you’re canceling. For example, you can write “I would like to request an immediate cancellation of my timeshare contract as I am not satisfied with the value you bring considering the costs.”

Be Simple

This letter shouldn’t include complex words that make you look smarter. It shouldn’t include long paragraphs to show that you have a lot to say. It shouldn’t include long stories that don’t directly link to why you want to cancel your contract.

This letter should be simple. Make it as short as you can. That WOBS research mentioned earlier also highlights that 65% of writing is too long. Think about how fast you can transmit information when writing this letter. Tailor your writing to suit this one need – cancellation of your timeshare contract.

That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t provide information. You should. Just limit the fluff.

And don’t forget to space out your writing. Don’t write everything in one big paragraph.

Ask for Confirmation

Without confirmation, you have no evidence that your contract is canceled. This can backfire down the road, when you eventually find out that your contract is valid.

Timeshare Cancellation Letter: Things Not to Do

It’s Easy!

It isn’t hard to write a timeshare cancellation letter. It’s simply about getting to the point while writing as little as possible.

A letter won’t always work due to the agreements in your contract. This is just the unfortunate truth. If there was any misrepresentations that occurred when you bought your share, then there’s a chance that we can help you cancel it.

Frequently Asked Questions ?

How does PMG get me out of my timeshare contract?

PMG is not a resale, transfer, or donation company. We are consumer advocates—we help to negotiate the release of your timeshare contract obligation. We do not buy, sell, or rent your timeshare. Simply put, we help you to get out of your timeshare contract forever.

How long does the process usually take?

Usually less than 12 months, but it all depends on your situation. If your timeshare is free and clear with no mortgage, then the process may only take 3-9 months.

Speak to your advisor about the time, and what delays the resorts have put into place to prevent timeshare owners from departing their ownership. If you have a mortgage or past due maintenance fee, the process takes more time.

How much is my timeshare worth?

This is probably going to hurt, but whether you paid $5,000 or $50,000 for your timeshare, the IRS values all timeshares as worthless investments. In addition, that timeshare would have negative value due to the annual maintenance fee bill which compounds year after year. That is until PMG helps you cancel your timeshare.

Can I use your service if I still have a balance owed on my mortgage?

Yes. Whether you bought your timeshare 20 days ago or 20 years ago, PMG has a solution for you and is here to help.

Will my name be off the timeshare?

Yes! Permanently! GUARANTEED!

In addition to getting me out of my timeshare, can you recover the money I’ve already spent on mortgage payments and maintenance fees?

While we are able to recover money in rare cases, beware of any timeshare cancellation company that entices you with the promise of fund recovery. The truth is, timeshares are loath to give back the money they’ve already taken.

Are your consumer advocates really “consumer advocates”, or is that just a fancy word for salesperson?

Because most of our clients have had their trust betrayed by timeshare salespeople, we understand how some consumers can become a bit jaded. When you call us for a consultation, that’s exactly what you get, a consultation. At PMG, our job is not to sell you; our job is to help you get out of your timeshare. Which is why we have numerous 5-star reviews and an “A” (excellent) rating from the BCA.

Why should I choose PMG to get me out of my timeshare?

We pride ourselves on providing our customers with the best customer service in the industry. When you contact our company, you speak to a live person, not an automated system or voicemail. We go above and beyond for our customers by helping you to protect your credit and even repair your credit if needed. We offer a 100% money back guarantee, and we can provide documented proof of our success in helping customers just like you.

What happens after I sign up with you? Will I be apprised of your progress?

At PMG, we pride ourselves on our hands-on, boutique-style customer service, so every new client is assigned a case manager whose job is to keep you in the loop throughout the entire cancellation process. Your case manager is always just a phone call away.

How much is your fee?

Not all timeshare experiences are created equal. Some are more complicated than others, and every situation is different. That’s why our trained timeshare elimination consultants will ask you a series of questions designed to determine exactly what needs to be done to terminate your timeshare, how long it will take, and how they can best advocate for you. We will always seek the most cost-effective route for you.

What if I still have more questions?

Canceling a timeshare contract is not a cookie cutter process. With each situation being unique, once you complete the form below an experienced consumer advocate will call you today to discuss your options.
