Solve your MARRIOTT RESORT Timeshare Problems

If so, you are not alone. There are an estimated 600,000 Timeshare owners in the UK and Marriott Resorts

In recent months, we have seen a steep rise in enquiries from disillusioned Marriott Resorts members, many of whom report high fee increases (read more...), broken promises from Marriott Resorts management, aggressive fee collection procedures, changes to a points system and concerns about contracts which commit owners to paying fees "in perpetuity".

Selected recent comments from other Anfi customers who have to come us for help:

Mr C – Marriott Vacation Club Timeshare owners

“My wife and I were approached in a shopping centre in the UK by individuals representing Marriott with the sole purpose of trying to sell holiday ownership. We were then asked to attend a three day visit to Spain by a Marriott’s representative. During the visit to Marbella we attended the resorts they were wanting to sell as well as their sales office. During the sales office visit we were pressurised to make an instant decision regarding the purchase of the week. During this visit the Rep explained that Marriott would buy back the timeshare/holiday week from us, but we never received anything in writing to this effect. I feel that the sales representative did misrepresent the offer and did not provide sufficient advice at the time.”

Mr & Mrs S - Marriott

Offered an inspection holiday of 3 nights with accommodation and car hire agreeing to attend a 90 minute presentation.
Then pressurised into buying on the day a 3 bed unit – without notarisation. Paid deposit with credit card on the day. The unit is a floating week with perpetuity. A year later we returned to Spain and swapped the 3 bed unit for 2 weeks in a 2 bed unit – paid deposit with credit card – no notarisation – the units are floating weeks with perpetuity.

Mr & Mrs A - Marriott

Recommendation from family member.
Signed finance agreement and paid deposit same day. It was a high pressured sale, we had to sign immediately because there was “a special offer” if we did so.
Terms and conditions misrepresented to us were, told we could walk away at any time by resale to Marriott. This has proved impossible. Rising maintenance fees higher than we were advised, go up annually. Attempted to resale 3 years ago but after giving us a resale value they would not commit to it. Gave us directions to sell on open market, a massive loss to resale value they quoted.
Despite contacting them months in advance to book a holiday, our preferred dates are never available.
Perpetuity?? We were not told about this, we never knew.

About Timeshare Release

During the Timeshare sales boom of the 80s & 90s, potential buyers were lured in by the promise of affordable exotic holidays, flexible exchange programmes and the impression that Timeshare would be a valuable "investment".

In an industry with little or no regulation, high pressure sales tactics were rife and contract smallprint was often glossed over and explained away by sharp salespeople.

Many Timeshare buyers were therefore unaware that they were actually making significant, long term financial commitments on behalf of themselves and their families.

To find out how you can escape the Timeshare Trap please complete the short Timeshare Release Wizard now.

The Timeshare Trap

The timeshare trap

For many Timeshare owners, annual maintenance fees were barely considered token amounts in the early "honeymoon period" of ownership.

However, year-on-year increases imposed by the resorts over time now mean that the maintenance fees have risen to become substantial sums.

Owners are also facing the prospect of ongoing yearly fee increases and realising that they (and their families) are often committed to long term contracts for generations to come.

Please try our Future Fees Calculator to estimate your liabilities over the term of your Timeshare contract, based on an annual increase of 7.5%.

If you're concerned about rising fees and how to escape the Timeshare Trap, please contact us today.

Recent comments from RCI Timeshare owners who have come to us for help with contract cancellation:

Mr Steve R, Middlesex - RCI/Hollywood Mirage

“We 'swapped ‘another place in Tenerife for this in order to move to the points system. Since then, getting exchanges to desirable resorts proves almost impossible, irrespective of in-season or off-season.”

Mrs Rachael B, Yorkshire - RCI Europe

“I purchased my timeshare in 1999 and have been a timeshare member ever since. More often than not, I have not be able to go where I wanted and have ended up giving a few weeks to Friends, etc to book somewhere they wanted in order not to lose the weeks. I have then stayed in a hotel!! I am desperately trying to get rid of the timeshare and am now paying Timeshare Shop in Manchester to get rid of it for me.”
