Timeshare Exit Process: One Size Doesn't Fit All
How to Cancel a Timeshare
3 min read
Vacations should be enjoyable, but for many people, their dream vacation turns into a timeshare burden. Find out how these burdens can weigh you down and what you can do about them.
The ideal vacation is fun, right? You’re relaxed. You don’t have to work. You can just focus on having fun with your family and friends. So how does that good thing turn into a timeshare burden?
That relaxed state of mind that makes vacations so awesome also makes you vulnerable to making snap decisions. And timeshare companies know this. So, they invite you to their presentations while you’re on vacation and capitalize on your mood. They’ll even offer you freebies and incentives to get you there. And then they remind you about how much fun you’re having and wouldn’t you love to do this more? And you know what? You absolutely would!
Then they make it easy for you. Quick, high-interest financing is easy to get during a timeshare presentation. Or you can even put it on your credit card. Why not? You’ve been using the card a lot this week anyway. And the next thing you know, you’re the owner of a timeshare you didn’t even know you wanted.
Imagine this. You’ve paid for your dream timeshare and have kept up with your maintenance fees. You’ve even paid your exchange fees. But when you try to make your vacation reservation, nothing is available. So, you call the customer support line and find out you didn’t make your reservations early enough. Or maybe you don’t have enough points. Or any number of scenarios owners face every day. Unfortunately, there’s no guarantee that you’ll be able to use your timeshare.
Or maybe you bought a deeded timeshare based on the unit you saw in your tour during the sales presentation. With its high-end fixtures and great views, you knew it was the place for you. However, when you arrive at your unit, you find out its nothing like the model. And once again, it’s too late. Even if the sales rep promised you that your unit would be identical, if you didn’t get it in writing, you’re out of luck.
For other people, the cost of timeshare ownership is just too high. Even if you love your timeshare vacation, it turns into a timeshare burden if you can’t afford it. Maybe you didn’t fully understand the true cost of ownership. Or maybe you lost your job, or your spouse needed unexpected medical care. No matter what, this is a terrible situation to be in.
The worst thing about not being able to afford your timeshare is that you can’t get out of it, either. Even if you want to do the responsible thing, timeshares are hard to escape. So, either you make your timeshare payments and go without other necessities or you don’t make your payments and endure collections calls and bad credit scores.
There are many ways you might be able to get out of your timeshare. If you’re still in the rescission period, you could cancel your contract. However, that option is only available for the first week or two after the contract was signed. Some timeshares do have programs that allow you to give back your timeshare. But you must meet specific requirements and you’ll lose all the money you put in. You may be able to sell your timeshare on the resale market. But finding a buyer can be very difficult and you’ll definitely be selling for much less than you paid. Still, one of these methods might work.
