Tricked Into A Timeshare Instead of a Treated Vacation?

Did you get tricked into attending a timeshare presentation? Have you agreed to attend a presentation in exchange for a free vacation? It does sound nice – get a free trip, and all you need to do is sit through a presentation. That’s a no-brainer, right? Countless people have discovered that this becomes more of a trick than a treat!

A 90-Minute Haunting Experience

When you enter into an agreement to watch a timeshare presentation, you need to fulfill certain obligations in order to get the vacation. You may be required to be over a certain age, you may need to bring a spouse, and you must wait until the presentation is completely over. If you fail to meet any obligation, you will be left with the total price of your vacation.

With that in mind, many timeshare sellers try to make getting through the full presentation difficult. They can make the presentation drag on and on. Sometimes, even though you have already fulfilled your obligations, they might make it seem like you still need to wait longer. They may even make you take a tour of the timeshare resort. If you seem like you aren’t going to buy a timeshare, they will do anything possible to avoid giving you a free vacation. Some people have even been stuck for days over what was supposed to be a 90-minute presentation.

Scary Aggressive Sales Tactics

Timeshare salesmen are known for their unscrupulous sales tactics. They are there to make the sale, no matter what it takes. The following reasons show why many people rush to find resort cancellation services. 

False Urgency🚨

They often create a false sense of urgency to hook you in. They claim you must act right now in order to get this once-in-a-lifetime deal. When in reality, that deal is always available.

Cancellation Periods⏰

Most timeshares have a short window after signing where you can back out of the deal. Timeshare salesmen love to leave this out of their presentation. Once they make the sale, they don’t want you thinking there is anything you can do but keep paying them. Fortunately, there are resort cancellation services that can help you escape your timeshare even after the cancellation period is over. 

Aggressive Coercion 😡

Timeshare salesmen have an answer for everything and won’t avoid using that against you. They will argue aggressively against any possible issue you have, often using coercive techniques like guilt and shame. Another tactic they use is cornering you with multiple salespeople in hopes you will be overwhelmed into making a snap decision. 

Shady Contracts🔦

Even more unscrupulous is the way some salesmen represent the contract. They will claim that the contract has more value than it actually does, and they never make you aware of hidden fees and restrictions. As a result, many people will blindly sign a contract, only to find they immediately need to start looking for resort cancellation services.
