Knowing which timeshare companies are trustworthy is a difficult task, especially as there are so many to choose from and because there are unfortunately many timeshare scams that give the industry a bad name. However, it is important to note that timeshare is not a scam in and of itself and that with a little common sense you can avoid a timeshare fraud.
The safest thing that you could do when buying a timeshare is to opt for a company that has a long and reputable track record. A quick search on the internet will show you who are the scams and which companies are offering genuine products worth buying. Established companies that have been operating for at least 8 years will pretty much guarantee value for money, low risk and quality of product. All you have to do is fall in love with the development and destination!
Established timeshare companies are also a great option because they are generally great value for money. With years of experience they know exactly what they are doing and are able to keep the cost of construction low and negotiate according to economies of scale. Some timeshare companies that operate in just one country also tend to own their own construction companies, which means they can offer great products at great prices without skimping on quality.
The other thing to note about a long standing company is that with so many years behind them, their reputation is important. These companies are usually the ones with very strict sales policies keeping their sales teams in check, cracking down on maverick sellers who might think that stretching the truth is going to make them the sale they need. In fact, the more reputable the company, the stricter they are on sales tactics and securing the reputation of their product.
