This apparent Holiday Reservations Central with a large choice of resorts worldwide is actually just a Fly Buy booking office, feeding timeshare owners into a couple of resorts only where they will be taken to a meeting and introduced to one of the Discount Holiday Club Memberships, paying a lot of money for something like hot air.
With main offices in Gran Canaria there is another office in Tenerife. The contact numbers are:
Tenerife: 0034 922 711 207 & Fax 00 34 922 775822
UK: 0044 0203 4555 301
France: 0033 980 130 547
Holland 0031 457 111 680
How do they work?
Although GC Resorts officially claims at its homepage, NOT to be affiliated in any way with RCI or Interval International, they are now cold calling timeshare owners and identifying themselves as RCI Office in Tenerife, or being the RCI Guide.
The timeshare members, who are being offered promotions like unlimited availability until end of 2013 for all RCI gold crown resorts with 2 free extra holidays, will have an unpleasant surprise, when they receive an email from Gran Canaria resorts, in which they are informed that they can only book accommodation at certain resorts in the Canary Islands, and Thailand resorts! And forget about the “Luxury Defined” the resorts are not Gold Crown or Five Star!
With the above information, and the knowledge that behind all this is Eugene Kaiser, the same person behind Voyager and ReclaimGC (See our latest blog http://t.co/nW592Vv) it gives you a lot to think about before actually booking a “happy holiday” with Gran Canaria Resorts.
Have you visited a resort through a booking of Gran Canaria Resorts? Did you end up buying into a Discounted Holiday Club or signed up for the ReclaimGC Scheme? We are keen to know!
