Learn more about these attractive timeshare promotions and how they work!
Fractional ownership is one of the top-selling products in the travel industry. However, many timeshare companies have been much criticized due to the high-pressure tactics that they use to sell the properties. To improve their reputation, these companies have launched in the market numerous attractive timeshare deals to attract new prospect buyers.
What are timeshare deals?
Timeshares deals are cheap travel offers (sometimes even for free), that usually go from 2 to 5 days. These promotions become very attractive because their prices are way lower than the ones from the competition, and they always pop up when looking on the internet for cheap vacations and travel discounts.
Last minute offer!
You probably have heard of these sorts of timeshare promotions before, and most of them sound too good to be true because they have some strings attached. That means that you will have to sit through timeshare presentations, and their main goal is to get you to buy a timeshare ownership. These cheap vacations and free weekends aren’t always a bad deal, but before going to one of them, we suggest you to follow the following tips:
*Don’t believe everything you hear. If the offer sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
* Do not get too comfortable. The timeshare salespeople may be very nice, but their real job is to get you to sign a timeshare contract.
*Do an internet research on the company before embarking on the promotion. Remember, Google is your friend.
*Do not accept any alcoholic beverages during the presentation.
*Ask for everything in writing
Five signs that spell S-C-A-M
Timeshare deals are not always legit. These are some signs that spell scam on a promotion:
1. “Fees in advance” – Most of these companies disappear once you send them the money.
2. “Special offer” – Most times, the word “offer” means that many extra fees will be charged
3. “Subject to availability” – Surprise! There is never availability in any of the hotels that you want to stay at.
4. “Popular hotel” – They claim you will get to stay at a “popular hotel” but they do not reveal the name of the company
5. “You have won a free vacation” – Did you actually enter a contest? Almost 100% of these notifications are a scam.
