My name is William Wood
I recently contacted Itra at the Maidenhead office and completed an offical claim form to try and regain some of the exhorbitant fees charged on my time share.

4. Timeshare Resorts: Diamond Resorts

Derek Smith ~ Chester UK.    Joint owner with wife of Diamond Resorts timeshare points.   (Originally the Grand Vacation Cpompany)

Happy for many years until the company was taken over by Diamond Resorts and management fee escalated sharply.   (Probably to fund court defence costs)

There are so many disatisfied timeshare owners I am wondering if the industry is in general decline.

4. Timeshare Resorts: Palm Oasis, Gran Canaria

« Reply #3 on: August 22, 2010, 09:09:54 pm »

Hi bought our timeshare Palm Oasis in 2000, hubby made redundant in January 2009 unable to pay fees, still not found permanent job, I am about to be laid off work due to ill health so going to have trouble paying maintenance fees again, have asked resort to take the timeshare back no luck.  Have tried various ways of getting rid of it cannot even give it away.

When sold the timeshare was told it was a fantastic investment, never going down in price, that a resale centre would be set up (ha ha) that we would have no trouble reselling (even bigger joke) We need help cannot afford to pay to get us out of this continuing downward spiral of timeshare increasing costs.

Help badly needed.

I have owned a timeshare on the Costa Del Sol for about 9 years with MacDonalds. At first it seemed good value for money, but with the year on year increases in Maintenance fees, this hasn't been the case for many years. I naively thought if I asked them to take it back they would, but was told if I did not continue pay I would be taken to court. To make matters worse they say it passes on to the kids! And....all the ones who pay are paying a higher fee due to defaulters. Nobody wants to buy it either. (can't say I blame them, I wish I had had more sense!)

4. Timeshare Resorts: Palm Oasis, Gran Canaria

« Reply #5 on: September 03, 2010, 02:04:03 pm »

Hi
my name is Alison Jeatt we have a timeshare in Palm Oasis, Gran Canaria, hubby made redundant in 2009 and I am about to be medically retired due to ill health, due to finances etc we have not used our timeshare since 2008.  Have tried to sell it and even give it away to no avail.  Hopefully Itra will be able to help us. 

When we bought were told that it was a good investment for ourselves and children (who say clear off we don't want that millstone around our necks thanks), was told that we would be able to sell quite easily and that the value would go up year on year.  (think they meant the maintenance fees) was told by one of the sales guys he had bought twelve weeks as he thought it was such a good investment. 

They caught us at a weak moment in time as it was our wedding anniversary, our first trip abroad without children etc, tried to cancel when we got home to no avail as it was over the 7 day cooling off period (holiday was for two weeks).  ah well not the only ones in this situation.

regards

Alison

4. Timeshare Resorts: Palm Oasis

« Reply #6 on: September 03, 2010, 10:35:16 pm »

Hello all
I'm Alan Turner,My wife and I bought 2 weeks at Palm Oasis in 1997 after being taken to a"presentation"The salesman told us that
he had bought 12 weeks as an investment which would rocket in value and if we wanted to sell in the future,Palm Oasis would have a resale service.At that time we had no reason to disbelieve him.I did not have my credit card with me so I was taken to my hotel in a taxi while my wife was held prisoner.When I returned,I was persuaded to ring the credit card company and ask for a higher credit limit so I could pay the deposit.I can't believe I was so naive!I have not paid the maintenance fees for 2 years
and their debt collectors,Debtsave has sent me a Final Demand- Legal action Imminent letter for 2 years fees + interest which I
have refused to pay.My wife has a long term mental illness and will never be able to go.There is no law to stop these sharks
from demanding money from me until I die -and beyond.I'm 72 this month so,while I am still fit.I'm going to fight them and
tell the world.

Hi my name is Bernice I went to a meeting with Itra yesterday in Chester & qualified for the claim on unreasonable maintemance fees. Which I believe will be proccessed in due time. I also agreed to pay ITRA to take over my time share in Algarve. Have any of you members done this and how did it go?

Hi, yes I have been and although I felt a little under pressure I have now realised that disposing of the milstone of ?900 a year from around my neck is a big weight off

Hey Bernice

It was my understanding that ITRA were the brains behind the RCI Class Action and that one of their sponsors named Club Class were taking responsibility of my timeshare. Mind you I went to Maidenhead, maybe it is different in Chester. Please can you clarify as it would seems rather odd if ITRA had taken over your timeshare???

Cheers

Hi, My name is Kim Bevis, my wife and myself have had a time-share (originally points with GVC) for a number of years and have been dismayed at the escalating maintenance fees. Having tried, and been ripped-off twice, to get rid of this commitment we have finally managed to do this with the help of ITRA. Yes we've signed up with Club Classic which cost but hopefully the pay-out from the legal claim should cover this, even if it doesn't, we still save in the long run with the amount we would have paid in maintenance fees being much higher (another 30+ years commitment) than what we have just paid.

Thank you ITRA  :D

Hello, my name' s Paola Beretta from ITALY. I would know, is there any possibility to resell timesharing properties, just like any other estate in the world? or at least to give it up?

Hello
We are Ian & Margie
We had time share with RCI Points for 10 years and basically have no grizzles about RCI and have had some nice holidays. However, the escalating maintenance fees have horrified us and as we are now both retired we have had great difficulty in finding the money. Some one has been very greedy here. We have been to talk to ITRA recently and hope hat all our problems are behind us but it has cost us money (which would have been spent on the maintenence fees) and I am still trying to get my head round it all. My husband is quite adamant that we have 'done' the right thing.
