Timeshare Compensation Reviews
"The legal support advisors acted upon instruction and I am now relieved to have achieved my exit from my timeshare."
Mr & Mrs Peach
"Today was very good, and very instructive. We were amazed at a few things that Tom went through with us, some things we didn’t realize; it was very good."
Mr & Mrs Binder
"We initially did not want to get rid of the timeshare, but as time has gone on we don’t fly so much. We are here because Diamond Resorts have ruined it for us. The resort initially said we could give it back at no cost. Diamond, on the other hand said no. Under the circumstances, they offered to try rent it out for us, but never did, so we are still liable for the maintenance etc. I filled an online survey in and you called. The people we have spoken to, and met, have been genuine, and fully understand our predicament. Happy to have met Lee & Diane. Good cuppa and chat."
Mr & Mrs Lockwood
"Over the years we have purchased a number of weeks and, of course, with this we are paying very high yearly fees. We do love the resort, but don’t like the way it was sold to us. We understood that we could sell the weeks back, but this isn’t so. Also, when we send emails to the resort requesting information, they don’t even bother to reply to us."
Mr & Mrs Shah
"The advisor at the meeting was very knowledgeable regarding my timeshare that I owned, which gave me peace of mind from the very start. We had a few laughs too, something you wouldn’t expect from a timeshare exit meeting, but it made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. The outcome was better than I ever expected it to be. To be exited out of my timeshare is going to be a huge relief. Thank you"
"I have found today very good indeed, especially my meeting with Rob which was excellent. We haven’t been able to afford to go on holiday because of the cost of the maintenance fees, and cannot wait to be out of my timeshare, so that we can go on holiday again."
"5 Star rating. Mr Hall cannot fly anymore, and even if he could, the flight and travel to the resort would be too long. Plus, the exclusive beach and facilities we had are now open to the public, so anyone can use them. Due to Mr Hall’s health, and not being able to just give our weeks back, I got in touch with the Trading Standards and they passed me onto you. Everyone has been brilliant, I would give you a 7, if I could. We have been kept informed throughout about our appointment, and given information at the highest level. Very happy with the service."
Mr Hall & Mrs Wardlaw
"The girl we spoke to was helpful and answered a lot of preliminary questions before we came.Once here, Lee was very informative and explained every process thoroughly.We feel we are in the right place for help to get rid of our timeshare."
Mr & Mrs Rhodes
"We have owned our timeshare for 8 years, however, we now want to get rid of it, because the service charges are just going up and up and up."
Mr & Mrs Smith & Mr & Mrs Robertson
"We found the process informative, and very clear. We don’t have any faults really, it has been very helpful. Thank you very much."
Mr & Mrs Roberts
"We made the decision to get out of our timeshare back in February. The timeshare was not as we thought and, although we have only had it for 4 years, the maintenance fees have been going up and up. When we spoke to you guys, we were cautious initially but, after asking lots of questions, we decided to book the appointment. Today has been a lot more positive than I thought it would be. It’s a relief to know that there might be light at the end of the tunnel. Everyone has explained everything so well. We are looking forward to getting the money back, so that we can go and visit our son in Australia. We haven’t visited him since having the timeshare, as we haven’t been able to afford it."
Mr & Mrs Bentley
"The compensation is a bonus, if it comes, but the main thing is that we get rid of this timeshare. The meeting was good, very informative, and we got rid of the timeshare."
Mr & Mrs Sault
"We found Jo helpful, and we hope we can get the process started very quickly."
Mr & Mrs Daniels
"Today was promising, a bit brain battering, but I have actually been able to follow everything really well. You have been very thorough, so it has been carried out quite well."
Mr & Mrs Leigh- Brown
Today has been extremely helpful to us. We were worried and wary about coming here because we have lost a lot of money, but we now have every confidence that we will gain something from all of this. Our meeting with Lisa was very good.
Mr & Mrs Shah
"Despite the fact that it is a lot of information to take in, we have found today very good. Our meeting with Rob was great. We have wanted to get out of our timeshare for a while, as we haven’t used it, and they do not make it easy."
Mr & Mrs Thain
"It was a lot to take in, but we found it very helpful. I like the fact that, if we receive any compensation, it is paid into our bank."
Mr & Mrs Penn
"We found the process okay, a lot to take in and to think about, we know that this can be a difficult job. We are glad we are using you as a paralegal company."
Mr & Mrs Starsmore
"We found today optimistic, we think there is a great possibly of exiting, based on what we have been told. Jo put my mind at rest, and advised that it’s a pretty safe bet that we are not only going to get an exit, but also some significant compensation, in which case great, let’s go for it."
Mr & Mrs Poole
"We’ve had some really long sessions with Club La Costa, it really adds an edge to your holiday. For us It’s about time to get out. Things have moved on so much with holidays and prices of packages have really come down recently and there are so many options now. The meeting with Karen today has been really good."
Mr & Mrs Glithero
"I think you’ve covered everything that I can think of, and we are happy with what we heard. Thank you very much."
Mr & Mrs Wood
"There is a plan, but we are glad that, if you can’t do anything for us, we will get our legal fees back. It is very good. You are always filled with dread when it comes to this subject, you feel embarrassed about being in this situation, however, I would refer friends to your place."
Mr & Mrs Davies
"What today has done is to consolidate everything for me. I came in with a mindset of not making a decision, but Carl went through everything, and that has settled my mind. It’s been cool, calm, and collected, and that’s the bit I like."
Mr & Mrs Miles
"We didn’t really know what to expect from today, but it has been absolutely fine. Our meeting with Lisa was great, she’s wonderful, and a lovely lady. It sounded complicated at first, but once she went through everything step by step, it’s easy to understand."
Mr & Mrs Wood
"The meeting with Lisa has been very straight forward, the explanations have been very clear, we’ve asked a lot of questions which she has answered so that we understand. We just don’t want the timeshare anymore, it’s a huge burden, when we bought it we were told booking would be simple and straight forward but when it came to the crunch it was almost impossible. We have tried to book well in advance and been to there is no availability in the whole of Europe! In the end we ended up spending more money and booking online. All in all its been a very reassuring and productive day."
Mr & Mrs Caper
We have owned the timeshare 21 years and just had enough really, grown out of it, although we have had some wonderful holidays. The children are not interested in taking this on. We found the advert in Sunday Post and telephoned. They sent a brochure and we made an appointment. Was easy!
Mr & Mrs Coote
"We approached this meeting with great trepidation, and we explained to our advisor Tom that you are not the first company that we have tried. We had seen two companies before, one in the UK and another in Spain, and had not felt comfortable enough to give them our business."
Mr & Mrs Vale
"5 Star rating. This all started when I saw an advert on the TV, but then Ray was taken ill and we couldn’t come. You recently got back in touch with us, so we decided to take the offer to speak to someone again. The resort is getting run down, and we feel we are not getting what we paid for. Plus, we tried to get a guest apartment for our daughter and her family, and were told there were none. She got exactly the same resort, flights and transfers with Jet 2. How can that be? Nothing is exclusive any more. David and Diane have both been brilliant, accommodating, professional and friendly."
Mr & Mrs Baggott
"My wife passed away and I do not want to use the timeshare again. Plus, the high maintenance I am paying would fund a holiday, several times a year. It brings it home, when you buy these and then something happens, just how much of a burden they actually are. I still have a few years left, and don’t want to be beholden to something I am not going to enjoy. People have been friendly and helpful so it seems the right thing to do, to let a professional company do what is needed."
"We have found today extremely informative, and it’s so reassuring to see that a lot of people are in the same position as ourselves. If our timeshare company had told us from the beginning, that it wasn’t guaranteed that we could stay in our unit, which is the best, then we never would have purchased it. Our meeting with Karen was very good, it will be a relief to get out of it, and maybe go on holiday with our compensation money."
Mr & Mrs Engall
"We bought our timeshare about 8 years ago, and have only used it twice. It hasn’t been quite as they lead us to believe when we bought it, we thought we could have cruises and holiday all over the world. Also, the maintenance fees are going up and up each year, we could possibly book a holiday, including flights, for the same cost."
Mr & Mrs Smit
"I work abroad a lot and we have property in Thailand, so the timeshares are not being used. We got in touch with the Timeshare Council, who recommended you, so we got in touch. The difference in maintenance fees, since we first bought the weeks, has increased far more than we ever imagined. This could be paying for flights to visit friends, not holding us down. Meeting with Lee and Diane, we know the company has friendly professional staff, here to help. We have no doubts we have done the right thing."
Mr & Mrs Somek
"We were duped into more and more upgrades at the resort, with promises of holiday exchanges all over the world. As you can imagine, this has not happened, so when we saw your advert in the newspaper, we got in touch. Plus, we are an extended family, and don’t want to pass it onto each other’s kids. From the first call with Phyllis, to meeting Lee, we have been helped, and looked after brilliantly."
Mr Jones & Mrs Curbie
"We didn’t know what to expect when we came here today, but it has been very thorough indeed. It’s only recently, since we found out that many people have been successful, that we have been interested in exiting from our timeshare. I haven’t kept up with my maintenance payments, because the resort said they would sell my timeshare, but haven’t, so we are looking forward to being out of it all."
Mr & Mrs Zaman
"We found the process informative. Our maintenance charges went up, we were not told, and it cost us a lot of money. We are happy you are helping us to get rid of our timeshare."
Mr & Mrs Robson
"We saw an advert in the daily paper, and thought it was time we looked at things. We are on a fixed income now, and need to decide what our priorities are, with maintenance going up every year, this needed to be sorted. Plus, we are keen golfers, and the resort was supposed to be building a course, which has not happened. We feel we have been given false promises. Everyone has been so friendly here, we believe we are finally with a company who can help us."
Mr & Mrs Fewster
"Today has been really good, and incredibly informative. We have been talking about exiting from our timeshare for years. We are not happy about the maintenance fees going up from year to year, and fed up of being tied to those holidays."
Mr & Mrs Hughes
"We had been called by a couple of companies, but no one had offices in Northern Ireland. My dad lives near York, so we took the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone, and here we are. We have a six month old daughter, and with fees and flights to America going up we have to start thinking about our priorities. There have been a couple of opportunities to exchange for European Holidays, but they are getting harder due to our weeks being in the height of summer. Package holidays are just as good for us now, so we don’t want to pay for maintenance as well. With everyone being so helpful, and David giving us a full explanation of how things work, we think we have got the help we need to move away from our timeshare."
Mr & Mrs McSherry
"It has been brilliant, and above my expectations. It was simply explained, and I understood everything. Getting rid of the burden of having a timeshare is a bonus, and knowing I’ve actually got something else to benefit from, with the Jive Hippo membership, is great. Karen was really good, and she explained everything thoroughly. She was open to any questions, and is clearly an expert in her area. Nothing throws her at all, which is very reassuring. I would definitely recommend them to you."
"We simply don’t use the timeshare and can get a package holiday for the cost of the maintenance fees. Simple as that really. We had been in touch with ‘Which’ who in turn put us to the ‘Timeshare Council’. My wife is blind and we could not have been cared for better by Lee & Diane in York. Lee explained everything thoroughly, as there were a lot of visual aids and Diane read through and explained all the contracts, and helped her understand and know where to sign etc.”
Mr & Mrs Rhodes
"We have found today very good and very thorough. Our meeting with Rob was great, and really clear. We have wanted to get out of our timeshare for a while, so when we spoke to Timeshare Compensation and they said that there could be something in it for us, we thought it was worth a look."
Mr & Mrs Owen
"I recall seeing your advert some time ago but didn’t get around to contacting you, but saw the advert again whilst at the dentist. From day one everyone has been very helpful, especially taking on board our circumstances. On a star rating of one to five, I would give you ten."
Mrs Whitehead & Mr Brown
"Thanks very much, you covered the material very quickly and efficiently."
"We were very happy with our timeshare in the beginning, we did use it quite a lot when it was still exclusive, but more and more often there were lots of tour operator clients there too, not to mention the maintenance fees were constantly going up. We are now relieved to be out of our timeshare and have to say that it was all completed well within the timescale given. The service was good, our questions were quickly answered and we would recommend them to other timeshare owners wishing to exit."
Mr & Mrs Clarke
"We have had the timeshare for 27 years now. We have found that if you want to go long haul, you can still manage an exchange but Europe is a waste of time as you can never get anything, and you can see the resorts now listed on Booking.com. That’s not exclusive! The maintenance fees keep going up, and we feel enough is enough."
Mr & Mrs Oldham
"We came here feeling very sceptical, because of our timeshare background, however our meeting with Lisa was great, and at the moment it all seems brilliant, and almost too good to be true."
Mr & Mrs Fuller
"After dealing with and paying another company for around 2 years and getting nowhere, we contacted ABC after seeing an advert in a newspaper. Within 3 months we were no longer Timeshare owners. The service they provided was certainly efficient and effective, they were always available to answer any questions we had, and we would definitely recommend them in the future."
Mr & Mrs Johnson
"We found the process a bit daunting, but not too bad. We thought it was going to be a lot more pressurised, which is what we have been used to. We are looking forward to completing this, and getting rid of our timeshare. "
Mr & Mrs Bould
"We bought our Timeshare 14 years ago. We did enjoy a few holidays there, but as time went on we were unable to get the dates we wanted, and the maintenance fees were rising rapidly. Over the last few years things have evolved, and we’ve discovered we can actually book through the internet to stay at our resort without being tied in to paying high yearly fees. Also, the exclusivity that we were told we were buying into was no longer there."
Mr & Mrs Warr
"We had looked at exiting our timeshare before, but got nowhere, so, after ABC were brought to our attention, we decided to use them. They have been good at keeping us informed, we never had to call them to chase things up and the overall service has been pretty good. We would definitely recommend ABC in the future to other timeshare owners."
Mr & Mrs Blackburn
"There was an advert in our daily newspaper, and we know we have to deal with this situation. It is holding us down.High maintenance and perpetuity has caused us so much heartache with the kids, well actually, to be honest, we are more thinking the grandkids. So, we called. Gillian in the Concierge department was so helpful and friendly, it turns out she is from the same village as my mum, so I felt as ease straight away.Plus, coming to York for a few days has done us good too. Even in between the personal chats everyone has been so professional.We are comfy in the fact, we have a company looking out for us."
Mr & Mrs Noble
"Our meeting with Karen today has been long, but really good. We want to get out of our timeshare, because we don’t want to leave it to our children, and they have told us that they simply do not want it. That is our main reason for today. We are looking forward to not having the burden of it."
Mr & Mrs Lawson
"I broke my neck, and now I cannot work, so our income has taken a turn for the worse. We chose the points system, as we never know when we can go away, due to the farm. But even this has become increasingly hard to do. Plus, the maintenance has risen that much, we are in a position where we can no longer afford it. We filled in a survey, and received a call. Everyone was so helpful from that call, to seeing Lee, and we know we are in safe hands."
Mr & Mrs Middler
"We saw your advert in the daily paper a while ago, then threw it away in error. Luckily, we saw it again in the TV magazine. We cannot go on holiday for health reasons, so we are paying maintenance for nothing. It is really not cost effect anymore, and the only thing that is going to happen is the fees are going to rise, so we need to look at our options. Once we called, everyone was so helpful. Explaining each process, confirming our appointment and basically answered the phone every time we called. We feel confident about the professionalism of the company."
Mr & Mrs Tindall
"We had been interested in exiting our timeshare, so when we were contacted by ABC lawyers we decided to go ahead. The staff were really very good at answering our questions, and when we contacted them they were very prompt in responding. All in all, a good experience."
Mr & Mrs Plaster
"Very good service. It is difficult trying to get your head around these things, but we had a brilliant meeting with Lisa. It has been harder and harder to use our timeshare, as there is never anything available. If everything goes well, we will definitely recommend."
Mr & Mrs Harvey
"We found today brilliant, very clear, and you made sure that we understood everything. That’s what I would say, and my colleague would agree."
Mrs Line & Mrs Titley
"We have found today very good actually, there has been no rushing, which has been great. We were very sceptical, but have tried to remain open minded. We have wanted to get out of our timeshare since 2014, when they said they would sell it, but didn’t. "
Mr & Mrs Speller
"We are very interested in the compensation side as we owned our timeshare for 12 years and we never used it due to various illnesses. We contacted our resort and initially were told we could not get out of the contract, eventually through numerous Drs letters we were able to hand it back, however we lost a substantial amount of money due to the initial purchase cost and all the maintenance fees we had previously paid and we are pleased someone can help."
Mr & Mrs Rennie
"We just wanted out of our timeshare ownership. We haven’t used it since 2010, and had no idea we were entitled to any compensation. This is very welcoming news."
Mr & Mrs Kalyansingh
"I saw an advert in the Newspaper, and decided to look into exiting my Timeshare. I am very happy with the standard of service given to me with ABC lawyers, they answered all questions and put my mind at ease. I’m relieved to know that now I’m no longer responsible for my timeshare and I would recommend ABC in the future."
“Today has been really good actually. We have been well looked after and it’s been very pleasant. There has been no pressure which is important to us and far better than expected. Karen is lovely, and she knows what she is talking about which has given us a lot of confidence as it is hard to know who to trust. When you look at someone like Karen who knows what’s going on and knows far more about the industry and the resort than even we do, it sets your mind at rest. When we bought the timeshare, we thought we were going to have a great time at the resort but as time went on we were more and more pressured to buy more. Karen has made today very easy and we cannot wait to be out of our timeshare for good”
Mr & Mrs Robins
"We were promised value for money and great holidays all over the world, if we bought into the resort. Nothing has altered that fact since we purchased our week, but maintenance fee increases, and more no’s to our holiday requests. We also do not want the kids to end up with this, if anything happens to us, so when we were called, we decided we would see what we could do."
Mr & Mrs Smith
"We found our meeting with Rob very good. We have been wanting to exit our timeshare for a few years now, as there are so many underhand things that go on. We will be very relieved to be out of it."
Mr & Mrs Beaton
"After exploring other options to get away from the timeshare, we have come to Timeshare Compensation to see what they can do. The other companies we have seen have not been as professional and the money back guarantee offered has put the faith back in me. It means they will do their best.”
Mr & Mrs Hockey
"When we bought into Timeshare we were told it was exclusive, only for members, and that is not the case at all. People are staying there through Booking.com, and with the amount of maintenance we pay yearly, we could book a full package holiday in the same accommodation. Also, if for some reason one year we are unable to travel, we would still have to pay the maintenance regardless, and every year we stay at our timeshare, using our own week, we seem to end up wasting a whole day in a meeting at our resort."
Mr & Mrs Osborne
"Very informative. There were a few things I learnt about that I didn’t know. We picked up a lot more than we thought."
Mr & Mrs Crowson
"We were very apprehensive about coming here today because, coming from the timeshare industry, it is very hard to know who to trust. Having said that, we have found today very good indeed, and it has been a very positive experience. Both of our meeting’s today have been brilliant, and the whole thing has surpassed our expectations."
Mr & Mrs Smith
"All our questions were answered, and we found it fine. Before we came we thought we would be disappointed, and you would say you couldn’t do anything for us, so I was surprised. It gives me new hope."
Mr Cummings & Mr Birch
"We have used the timeshare so many times, but we prefer to holiday at different destinations now. The maintenance is being paid for no other reason than we cannot stop. If we do, we are by rights in debt. Plus, we don’t want to burden the kids with the fees and ownership if anything happens to us. I saw an advert in a Sunday newspaper in a coffee shop and tore it out, took it home, made the call, and here we are. Everyone has been so professional, I am glad we did."
Mr & Mrs Masterson
"I was reading a magazine in the dentist’s waiting room and saw your advert. We had been sold a product in Tenerife complete with a promise to be able to sell if we wanted to. As you can imagine, when we wanted out, the offer was not there anymore. We decided to come see what was on offer here, as we don’t use the timeshare any more. Wayne gave our options in a very professional manner. There was no pressure on us, so we made the decision to go ahead. Everyone has been very helpful."
Mr & Mrs Sargeant
"It was very clear at the meeting. I am happy that you will be working on behalf of my parents."
Mr & Mrs Patel
"They have been very professional, and really nice. I cannot believe the in-perpetuity aspect of our timeshare contract, and had no idea about that before we came here today. The reason that we came was to try and obtain compensation, but we didn’t realise we had to exit first. We have been told a lot of information today, that we were not aware of, which has been an eye opener. We would definitely recommend them to others."
Mr & Mrs Lennard
"I owned for a long time in Beverly Hills Club, and I really loved it there, but suddenly I was told I had to give up my week as they had sold the apartment. They changed my week to Hollywood Mirage, seemingly an upgrade, and although it is very nice, I much preferred where I was. They have changed so much without consulting the owners. I did ask them a while ago to take my week back, but they refused, and now this happens."
"I paid to get the deeds signed over to my sole name, after a break up of a relationship. The point was so I could sell the timeshare. When I had done so, I was informed that Spanish Law had changed again, and still needed the permission of the other person. As you can imagine, I was not happy. This seems the best way to get out of my contract and try get some money back. The people I have spoken to seem to know what they are doing, so I feel happy I have done the right thing."
"When we retire we don’t particularly want to just go to Tenerife anymore, plus we don’t want to leave a debt with our son. We got into the timeshare, why should he end up with it. We have been contacted by companies before, and lost money, so were dubious about dealing with this. I have been off work, so instead of just catching the sport in the paper I have been reading it, saw your advert, and contacted you. We feel in control and happy about the way we have been treated, from the initial phone call to the meeting. We are glad that we have a company, which we chose, to help us."
Mr & Mrs Green
"Now my husband has passed away, going on holiday on my own is not really an option. Plus, I am on a fixed income and cannot afford the maintenance anymore. I saw an advert in the People’s Friend and called. Everyone was so helpful, and even encouraged me to bring someone with me, so I was not on my own. It is nice to know there are people out there to help you when you need advice."
"We filled out a survey on line, and someone called us. We need to get rid of the timeshare. If it was what we paid for, we would be happy, unfortunately, it is not fit for our purposes anymore. The apartment we viewed was not the apartment we were given. It’s like buying a house, then being given a tent to live in! The maintenance does not fit the work carried out, nor assist us in any way when we are there. After seeing the cost of resales on line, or lack of, we think this way is the only way forward."
Mr & Mrs Blackburn
"I have found the process eye opening, and everything was made perfectly clear, and very interesting. We want this to work out, and for the timeshare to be taken off our shoulders."
"Today we learnt more than we thought, we came in for compensation, and weren’t holding much hope, but now we are very happy that you are working on our behalf."
Mr & Mrs Currie
"We did not really want to get rid of the timeshare as we use it still, but after speaking with David, things have been put into perspective, and we realise something must be done. We have two daughters, and they have children too. We don’t want them to inherit our problem. Costs are rising with flights and maintenance, and although we enjoy holidays, there are cheaper places we can go."
Mr & Mrs Millington
"We have only had our timeshare for 2 years, and the maintenance has increased about 65%. I complained to the resort, tried to make a stand, but was completely ignored. I even complained to the ECC, I never received a response from them either. We have used it, but it isn’t worth paying so much in fees."
Mr Linsingh & Mrs Berkmans
"We have owned the Timeshare for 7 years, and not used it much because we can never get what we want, and now not only do we have to pay a maintenance fee but also a charge for each point that we use, so in effect paying twice. We are glad to see the back of it."
Mr & Mrs Millar
"It’s been a long day, but we found it informative, good, and we are looking forward to a result of exit."
Mrs Martin & Mr Irvine
"We were worried before we came here today, because of the amount of problems we have had previously with trying to get out of our timeshare, but our meeting with Karen was very good, and we are looking forward to it all being sorted."
Mr Moore & Mrs Welsh
"We have two boys now, and the way we can get holidays on the internet is much easier. The maintenance fees have more than doubled in 7 years, so the money we will save will be helpful. Everyone has been helpful and accommodating, we came via a recommendation from the Timeshare Council, so we know we are in good hands."
Mr & Mrs Craig
"We saw an advert in the newspaper and decided to look into exiting our timeshare. The service was good and definitely to be recommended. We were out of our timeshare well within the timescale we were given, it was much quicker than we thought it would be. The staff were helpful and knowledgeable, they do what they say they will do."
Mr & Mrs Harvey
"Leanne was very businesslike, she definitely comes across well, and this helps, because I needed a bit more clarification. Apart from that excellent."
Mr & Mrs Wagstaff
"It’s been very clear, and a lot to absorb and understand. I am a naturally suspicious person, so part of me thinks that this is too easy, and I have paid a lot of money out. However, I will be relieved when I have something coming back to me."
"The value has gone from our points, we used to be able to get 5-6 weeks’ holiday time but with the rise in maintenance fees and the amount we own we only get 2-3 now. When we are on holiday they try sell us more as they push the cost effectiveness and ease of points but as I say they are not cost effective now. We were given your details as someone who could help us and our trip to York has been worthwhile.”
Mr & Mrs Mills
"We had originally signed up to a trial membership which was ok, but then we were persuaded to sign for a full membership. Unfortunately, I was made redundant and although I continued working it was with an agency and my financial circumstances changed a lot, which put a huge strain on us to pay the maintenance fees. They also were not fulfilling all that they had promised. We needed a ground level unit due to disabilities, and we were put 3 flights up and miles away from all of the facilities, which was completely unsuitable for us. I was looking on the internet and saw an advert for Cheap Holidays Tenerife, I sent them an email and Cathy called me. When I disclosed I owned timeshare but was unhappy with it, she then explained I may have a good case to claim compensation, we felt quite relieved. Having met Ian today at ABC Lawyers, he has put our minds at rest. He was very good and explained everything very clearly step by step."
Mr Thomas & Mrs Haines
"It was a lot to take in, however we found it good, clear and concise. Thank you for your help."
Mr & Mrs Marsden
"We were very unhappy with the treatment from our timeshare company, or at least the company that took them over, when they just changed our apartment without consulting us, not only that but the ever-increasing maintenance bills. We read about ABC Lawyers online and decided to contact them. We are relieved that we are now out of it and rid of the burden of the management bills. The service provided by ABC was good, anytime we contacted them they responded pretty much straight away, we were never left hanging. It’s very likely that we would recommend ABC t other timeshare owners."
Mr & Mrs Eyre
"I found out about ABC Lawyer through the Website, the service they provided was well within the timescale they estimated which I was pleasantly surprised with. The consultants were very knowledgeable and all in the all the customer service level was excellent."
Mr & Mr Purnell
"We found the process brilliant, far better than we expected, because now we can see light at the end of the tunnel, which we couldn’t until now. Everything has been explained clearly, and everything you said is logical. When we went to another company, our answer at the end of it was “If it looks too good to be true, then it is probably too good to be true”, we did not go with them, and now they have gone bankrupt."
Mr & Mrs Barber
"We filled in a survey, and it came to light we are actually paying maintenance for no return. We don’t find flying comfortable, and UK holidays are none existent in the timeshare world as they are so popular. Plus, our time is taken up with the grand-kids, as we get pleasure out of seeing them. We got lost on the way to you, and your concierge team were brilliant, they stayed on the phone directing us until we found the office. Everyone is so friendly."
Mr & Mrs Hubbard
"We have had the timeshare 30 odd years and enjoyed it. Now, we are putting our affairs in order, and the kids don’t want it. We spoke to someone who, very professionally went through our options. With the sorting of our affairs, raising maintenance, and the kids not wanting it, we decided to come and put the issue out of our minds, and into someone else’s hands."
"I have had a fantastic day down here in Bournemouth. I saw your advert, by chance, in the Daily Telegraph, and knew I had to do something about my timeshare, something that I have been putting off for a while now. The meeting I had with the advisor went splendidly well, and I was very pleased with the end results. It is refreshing to know where I stand regarding my timeshare. Everything was explained in great detail by everyone that I saw on the day. I am very happy I took the first step."
"Our meeting with Karen was great as she is so lovely, and very knowledgeable. We have thought about doing this for the last couple of years because of the increase of maintenance fees. It has got to the point where getting out of the timeshare will be a weight lifted off our shoulders."
Mr & Mrs Bryant
"The first contact we had from timesharecompensation.co.uk was with Jack. He explained everything to us clearly regarding the meeting. We also received a call before travelling from your Concierge department they confirmed everything exactly as Jack had told us. The meeting with Jean Pierre was very straight forward and easy for us to understand.”
Mr & Mrs Cromwell
"As soon as we made the appointment, we were contacted by another company, but we told them we were happy with our meeting, and everything was clear."
Mr & Mrs Long
"We learnt a lot today, and found it good. The resort hasn’t been upfront with us, and we didn’t want to land our 3 daughters with a huge debt, we don’t want that, so it’s time to get out."
Mr & Mrs Nunn
"I never realized at the time of buying my timeshare that it would be passed down to my family which I really wasn’t happy about. The maintenance bills have just kept going up which wasn’t ideal. I was offered the service of ABC Lawyers and thankfully now I can say I’m delighted to no longer have this burden. It was all dealt with professionally, with lots of good advice, I would most certainly recommend ABC."
"We had had our ownership with Club La Costa for over 8 years. Due to ill health we were unable to make use of it, and the resort wasn’t very helpful in trying to assist us, because of that we made to the decision to try and get out. The staff were so professional and precise with the information they gave me, if they were unsure about something I asked they would go find out and get back to me which for me was really reassuring. To be honest I’m just so glad to be out if it now, and without a doubt will recommend ABC Lawyers."
Mr & Mrs McCann
"My sister passed me an advert she had seen in a magazine. I have wanted to look at getting out of the timeshare, but had no idea where to start. Things in life change over the years, and we used the timeshare a lot when the kids where younger. The maintenance fees were acceptable, and it was cost effective. The kids work abroad now and have no need for it and it hasn’t been used for years. I am on my own now, so it all felt very daunting, but the professional way I have been looked after has been lovely and very helpful.”
"We really didn’t want to get rid of the timeshare, we have a little boy, so when we have been we knew what to expect, which was less stressful. It has now been opened as a holiday resort, so it is not exclusive any more. Plus, why should he have to continue our debt, in the future. There was an online survey which we filled out, and speaking with Wayne today, we cannot believe how much maintenance we will be paying long term, so decided that now is the time to deal with it. People have been so helpful, we think we have made the right choice."
Mr & Mrs Hill
"The conversation with Tom was very clear, open, and honest. Yes it was good. The only thing is that the process is similar to our buying the timeshare, however, we understand that the outcome is different, and the process of exit will be achieved."
Mr & Mrs Phair
"After my husband passed away I stopped using our timeshare, the maintenance fees were hideous, they were going up so much each year, I was recommended to ABC Lawyers by a friend, I am very happy with the meeting with Ian today he has explained everything to me very clearly."
"We were so scared with everything that has happened with the resort. We paid 10,000 in 2012 and then, in 2013, we realized that what we had bought we could not use when we wanted, and we then had to buy more points just to get some use out of it. We spent another 7,000, and, in total with the loan, that was 43,000, so we do want to get rid of this."
Mr & Mrs Straw
"We are honestly just relieved to get some help – we thought we were stuck with this…. there have been one or two people in the past, but we didn’t feel right with them, for some reason I didn’t want to go ahead, something kept stopping me. So, I thought I would come in person to see, but I haven’t felt like that today."
Mr & Mrs McCabe
"Today has been long, but we have also asked a lot of questions ourselves. We understand everything, and found the process good."
Mr & Mrs Kolanko
"We were happy owners, the only reason we wanted to get out of our timeshare is we don’t want it left to our family to deal with, should anything happen to us."
Mr & Mrs Rule
"We have tried previously to get out of our timeshare, but regrettably we were unsuccessful. We were never able to travel when we wanted because I was a teacher, and tied to school holidays. Also, in order to get any exchanges with RCI, you had to book a year in advance, which was no good to us, as we were never that organised. Sadly, if you don’t use your weeks you lose them, on top of this the maintenance fees are going up each year. But, really for us, more importantly, the Perpetuity Clause means our kids would be left to deal with it, and we definitely don’t want that."
Mr & Mrs Eyre
"Thank you for your help, all questions were answered fully."
"The reason we want to be out of our timeshare is ‘worry’. We worry we will not be able to afford the maintenance, and worry as we cannot use it anymore through bad health. We try to exchange to holidays in this country, but they charge extra and there is never any availability. When we were called by a company regarding the timeshare, we decided to come along and see how you could help. The person we spoke to was very nice and did not rush through things, so we knew a bit before the meeting, which was helpful."
Mr & Mrs McCann
"Our experience was that we had been charged upfront fees for the sale of our timeshare ownership, which we have since found out was illegal. Obviously, as the law changed, we heard nothing from these companies. We found the advert for ABC Lawyers Ltd in one of the magazines we read and decided to make the call. We actually weren’t even aware that we were entitled to compensation. Everything has been explained clearly, and we have a brother who is in a similar, if not worse, situation than us, and we will definitely be recommending he speaks with ABC Lawyers Ltd."
"We found the process good, and were happy with what we heard on the day."
Mr & Mrs Mason
"It has been very straightforward, and our questions were answered so we understood. The important thing, apart from the maintenance fees, is getting out of the timeshare, as we didn’t want to lumber our children with the bills that we had. We just want to cut them clean."
Mr & Mrs Bokenham
"Today was okay. Carl was very reassuring, and we found the process very good."
"We have never had a specific room at our resort but, if we booked early, we could request a sea view or at least a nice one. The last time we were told it would be 1,700 euros to book a sea view, there is nothing for loyalty anymore. To be honest, the standard has gone down and the maintenance up, plus we did not realise that perpetuity was part of the contract. When we bought the timeshare, we were told we could ‘will’ it to someone, not that it becomes part of our estate. We saw an advert in the newspaper, so decided it was time to look at our options. Everyone has been fabulous, so helpful and friendly."
Mr & Mrs White
"We found the meeting very good, excellent in fact. All questions have been answered so far, everyone is very pleasant, and it was presented in a good way. We are pleased, because we have never used our timeshare."
Mr & Mrs Dimelow
"I was on my last couple of days holiday in Mexico and I had just made the mistake of getting involved with timeshare, I honestly thought I was going to have a nervous breakdown as I had no idea how to get out of it. I spoke to an advisor- Sarah at Timeshare compensation who was absolutely brilliant, I actually spoke to her while I was still in Mexico as I honestly did not think I was going to be able to sort it and was so upset, but down to Sarah and purely down to her for the advice she gave me, we have now received the confirmation of cancellation through from the timeshare company. Not only that, she even called me when I got home to check that everything was okay. Had we not have received the cancellation notice through, we would have absolutely without a doubt used the timeshare compensation service to sort it out as it is clearly a fantastic company."
"We found the day very challenging and a lot to take in, but, at the end of the day, when our timeshare is cancelled, and if we gain any compensation, it will be all worth it."
Mr & Mrs Durrant
"We never understood the meaning of ‘In Perpetuity’ and when we got a call from Jennifer, after filling in a survey, we decided to come and see Timeshare Compensation. Our daughter is hopefully settling in Australia, so does not need the holidays and we do not want to leave her the responsibility. Everyone has been so helpful and everything been explained, we are going away knowing we are in safe hands.”
Mr & Mrs Ellershaw
"We have found today really good. We have been wanting to get out of our timeshare for a few years now, and are looking forward to it all being sorted."
Mr & Mrs Stewart
"We like the Jive Hippo online shopping."
Mr & Mrs Sharkey
"We knew we were being told something, as I saw the advert on Facebook and William saw it in the newspaper. All the usual reasons for wanting to be out of the timeshare, maintenance, health, retirement & perpetuity. The boys, I say boys, they are grown with children of their own, want nothing to do with it. Basically, decisions had to be made, so here we are. People have been helpful, absolutely lovely to be honest. All our questions have been answered, and we have peace of mind, that professionals are helping."
Mr & Mrs Cairns
"We found the process good as we were a little worried, because we have been taken in before, so it is hard to trust what people are saying to us. However, we are happy with what we have heard today."
Mr & Mrs Exley
"We are unhappy with the way we were sold our timeshare, they used very pushy sales tactics and every time we visit it’s the same push, push, push for another sale. We saw timesharecompensation.co.uk advertised on the internet and felt it was time for us to get out.”
Mr & Mrs Ward
"4 Star rating. You called us at the correct time. We had been to a meeting to resell our timeshare and, classically, had been persuaded to buy another bedroom, so in hindsight, feel we have been mis-sold. Plus, now we know the full story from speaking to Wayne, as we never knew the kids would end up with it. All in all, everyone has been so helpful and Wayne has explained everything thoroughly."
Mr & Mrs Rathburn
"After having had lots of great holidays for many years, we began to feel a bit cheated by our timeshare company. Our maintenance was rising significantly more than we had been told it would and unfortunately the quality of the accommodation was decreasing. We were gotten in contact with by ABC lawyers and I have to say we are delighted now that we are no longer tied to our timeshare and are free to holiday where and when we like."
Mr & Mrs Rowland
"The timeshare was a good thing when we got it, and we have enjoyed many holidays. Now though, my husband cannot fly, and we do not go to America, so when I saw your advert in the Woman’s Weekly I called. People have been so friendly, and David has explained everything in a manner we understand. We think now is the time to get out of the timeshare, as we are paying money not to use it."
