Survive Timeshare Problems
October 31, 2014
If common sense and clear thinking are applied then it’s easy to survive timeshare problems; in fact you could avoid them altogether with a little foresight!
A sound piece of advice when looking to avoid timeshare problems is to read your contract carefully. If possible you might also want to read it twice, just to be sure, because most of the problems reported in the first year are caused by a lack of awareness. All timeshare companies should provide you with their rules and regulations and, as such, you should also read them thoroughly because most timeshare problems occur because members lack familiarity with their contract and the timeshare regulations.
Paying your maintenance fees on time will also help you to avoid some of the more costly and inconvenient timeshare problems. One timeshare problem which arises from failing to pay maintenance fees is the inability to make use of your timeshare; in fact you will find you cannot stay at your timeshare unit unless your maintenance payments are up-to-date. Failure to pay any maintenance at all is likely to end in legal action.
To avoid finding that you cannot reserve the resort, dates or accommodation type than you want, booking well in advance is advised. Make sure you book your timeshare leaving plenty of time. Likewise, if you need to cancel your reservation, you should inform your timeshare company as soon as possible.
Finally, the best way keep timeshare problems at bay is to have good communication with members services for your timeshare operator. It is better to ask an agent directly if you have any doubts and refer to your rules and regulations for support.
