We are receiving emails through the different Customer Services departments of the larger timeshare companies, who send us questions from their members about an offer they received from Travelpromotions. (www.travelpromotions.info )
Travel promotions is linked to other companies mentioned in a previous blog and all operating from Tenerife: http://wp.me/p1kmoi-5i
The doubt arises where this company apparently offers space including in the same resort of the member for a promotional holiday of just £295 and another additional week on another date totally for free.
Of course, it is the well-known “fly-buy” holiday and for those experienced timeshare consumers it can be a nice opportunity to get an extra week in a nice resort, as long as they stand firm through the presentation which is part of the rules and regulations of these kind of holidays.
But what if the holiday is promised in “any resort worldwide” but after paying the promotional fee it seems to be extremely restricted to only a couple of resorts in Spain and Canary Islands and definitely NOT your home resort? As a matter of fact, your home resort has not heard from Travelpromotions at all!
What about the fact these consumers are going to be presented with a totally different product and talked into relinquishing their existing timeshare membership?
Ok, consumers are supposed to be “grown up” people, but what if they paid for a holiday in their home resort and then cannot get that and are pushed into the direction of the other resorts?
Where did Travel promotions get the data from to call the consumer in the first place?
Do the Developers / Timeshare Companies who collaborate with Travel Promotions know where there clients go and what they will be offered?
Sometimes maybe you should think twice before taking up an offer you cannot resist…
