Reviews of the timeshare industry by the owners...
I need people to get back in touch with me for the possibility of forming a legal action agains TIME OUT Vacations.
We attended a Timeshare presentation as many have and for our time were given a certificate for a one week vacation through a group called:
TIME OUT VACATIONS
We filled out all our paperwork as requested and sent it in on time and they agree we did everything correctly.
In order to get the FREE Vacation we had to book for March 2010. That was in August 2009.
They told us they would bill us a $200 deposit that would be returned to us after our trip if the property was not damaged.
Come November they got back to us - no trips available in the free month of March 2010 and we would have to pay $350 for a peak week in February 2010 and gave me a hotel they wanted to send us to.
I looked up the hotel and it is nice - but having a sale - in February 2010 I could book that hotel for $365 on my own.
TIMEOUT refused to budge and is keeping my $200 because I did not take the trip.
My plan is to go to the State of California Attorney General and do a class action law suit for my vacation and my $200 deposit.
Also I need to check what action can be taken against Global Discovery Vacations for committing this fraud.
Also - I have all my paperwork and emails showing what they did and I hope you keep yours as well.
