Walking Away from Your Timeshare
Getting out of your timeshare is complex and often lasts for a protracted amount of time. When you hear about how difficult and long the process may take, you could be tempted just to walk away from your timeshare and forget about it altogether. In fact, we are often asked if this is an option for many people.
As with any financial obligation, you can walk away from your timeshare as long as you are willing to face the consequences. If you are okay with the repercussions from a foreclosure and your credit score getting gutted, then that is your call to make. Remember though if your timeshare is a deeded property, then you have a permanent debt in maintenance fees and taxes attached to your estate. Bankruptcy laws have also changed and made it harder and harder for you to walk away from this debt.
Since those outcomes are less than desirable, why not get out of your timeshare the right way? To do this, you need an exit strategy. An exit strategy helps you avoid a bad credit score and too much debt--a far better outcome for you and your family! Here is where you can get started on your exit strategy.
You do not need to take our word for it. Here are some testimonials from past clients:
“The presentation was very educational. The representative was professional, informative and very knowledgable of his job. He explained in detail the service and the purpose of the presentation.” -- Louis and Deloris C., Birmingham, AL
“We paid a company to try and sell our timeshare and lost $3,000! Brian was very understanding of our mistrust in the industry and took the time to explain how it would work. We texted him and called him so many times and he and Laurie Stowers always called us back. They did exactly what they said they would do and we appreciate it.” -- Phil and Donna D. Valley Falls, KS
“I had the pleasure of attending a very professional presentation by Vacation Consulting Services.The consultant was pleasant, knowledgeable, and compassionate. I felt that I was talking with a friend and not pressured in any way. It is delightful to meet business professionals who not only speak the language of lay people, but who truly care about people in general.” -- Janis B., Greensboro, NC

Vacation Consulting Services takes a hands-on approach for our clients. We are an active participant in your experience. We believe timeshare can be a great value if used correctly, but that takes knowledge of how the industry works. Our consultants have worked for some of the largest timeshare companies in the world.
As we worked in the industry, it became abundantly clear to us that timeshare had one very large issue: Lack of Education.
Where do owners go for a clear understanding? They attend an “hour and a half” long presentation that lasts 17 hours and they are inundated with information. In fairness it is a hard system to explain and anyone would be lucky to remember 10%. Usually, owners go back to their original company and ask for help, but most timeshare companies don't have a customer service agent at the resorts so they send them on another sales presentation, where they are only getting a limited point of view.
Timeshare started in the US in 1966. Keeping up with this ever-changing industry is not something most owners want to deal with, which unfortunately, can drastically affect their ownership.
These are all questions that Vacation Consulting Services answers everyday.
We have discovered a need and it’s a need the industry should embrace because an educated owner is a happy owner.
Let us help you maximize your value because planning a vacation shouldn’t cause you to need a vacation.
Mortgage Relief: $100,000
A couple from Tulsa, OK owned three time-shares with three of the largest companies in the industry. They were in their 80’s and never used them. Their children didn’t want the burden, and their monthly fees including maintenance fees were over $10,000 a year. VCS was able to relieve them of their debt!
Wyndham Relief: Saving $2,750 a year on Maintenance Fees
A couple in Ruston, LA owned over 1,000,000 points with Wyndham. Just like many Wyndham owners, they over purchased and were left with more points than they could use each year. They weren’t sure if their children could afford the $5,900 annual maintenance fee. The Wyndham Relief program guaranteed them $2,750 annually for maintenance fees and still allowed them to travel three times a year.
Equity Trade: Trade into the Pure Points System, no Maintenance Fees
A couple in Milwaukee, WI had 4 fixed/floating weeks at various resorts totaling $2,900 in maintenance fees annually. They still wanted to travel, but didn’t want the financial burden each year. VCS used their equity to trade into the Pure Points system with no maintenance fees. Relieving them of deeded timeshare took away the burden now and in the future.
