Timeshare Reservations: Not So Easy

Having trouble making timeshare reservations? You’re not alone.

Back in the olden days (of the 1970s and 1980s), you didn’t need timeshare reservations. Instead, you purchased your deeded fixed week timeshare and went there every year. Forever. But as the timeshare market expanded, the industry developed new products and types of vacation ownership. Enter points-based timeshares, timeshare exchanges and vacation clubs. These products give owners the flexibility to make timeshare reservations for various weeks at various locations. Unfortunately, this flexibility has some strings attached. Making timeshare reservations isn’t as easy as it sounds.

Additional Fees

Timeshare companies began offering exchange programs as a way to appeal to owners looking for more flexibility. Exchange programs do provide that flexibility. With an exchange program, owners can trade in their interval at their home resort and stay at a different resort for a different interval. Sounds great, right? But then there’s the fine print. In many cases, the flexibility walks hand and hand with additional fees.

Exchange Fees

First, you have exchange fees. In order to make reservations, you usually must be part of the resort’s exchange program. And most resorts charge an exchange fee just for the right to be in the program. Some of these fees are as high as $300 and they can go up at any time.

Reservation Fees

After you pay your exchange fee and find a new unit, most resorts charge another fee to make the reservation. And if you go through a customer service representative rather than making the registration online, you may see an additional fee for that.

Upgrade Fees

As we know, not all timeshare intervals or resorts are created equal. If you want to stay in a more sought-after interval at a more popular resort, you may find yourself buying more points, upgrading to a more expensive plan, or paying the difference. You might also pay an administrative fee for new paperwork.

Lack of Availability

Lack of availability is a common complaint from owners looking to make timeshare reservations. The flexibility to try new resorts is great. And so is the option to move your week around. But none of it means very much if all the weeks at all the resorts are full. And unfortunately, resorts often have more owners than they have availability. In addition, they may also rent out units to non-owners–sometimes for less than an owner would pay to stay in the same unit for the same interval. We hear this time and time again from our clients. They were drawn in by the allure of all the options, but in the end, they paid for something they could rarely use.

Why pay for a timeshare you can’t use? If you’re unable to make timeshare reservations, consider timeshare exit with a cancellation partner like us. We can help you get out of our contract and get on with your life. Contact us for a free, no-risk consultation today.

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. Let us help you. 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, the resorts are loath to give back the money they’ve already taken for timeshares.

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 go above and beyond for our customers by helping to protect you, and have the best success rate in the industry, rated 5-stars by clients. 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 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 will work with our expert, experienced team whose job is to keep you in the loop throughout the entire cancellation process. We are 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.
