ITRA reserves the right to offer you alternative products during your consultation…

This consumer alert is for all those timeshare owners who are considering attending a presentation or so called consultation from ITRA.

Consumers who made an appointment thinking that this is about joining a class action to pursue the coordination of a claim to the courts on behalf of timeshare owners who can justify due cause for refund compensation, distress and damages on the grounds that their timeshare purchase was not of merchandisable quality.

If only this could be the real reason for attending their presentation / consultation….

ITRA – &  – currently the International Timeshare Refund Action – and until the end of August 2009, the International Timeshare Resale Association, has an unfortunate track record of misleading publicity and this resulted in 2008 by the ASA (Advertising Standards Authority) demanding to take all their adds away as they are misleading.

But as ITRA won’t give up, as they need to “feed” their sales decks with clients, and they have now found a way around this “hiccup” of advertising for one thing and then offering another thing.  On their website there is now a phrase included stating:

“The sponsors of ITRA reserves the right to offer you alternative products during your consultation”

Hold on…what products? I am here to join a class action! Are you going to offer me an electric blanket or what?

No…ITRA does not sell blankets and as a matter of fact they don’t do class actions neither..yet…ITRA is basically an outfit created by the Club Class group of companies (i.e. Club Class Corporation (Gibraltar) Ltd)  – group which includes among them: The Discount Travel Membership Club –DTMC- Club Class Concierge –; the Spanish travel agency Premiere Travel – and the cash back Cashback Europe Plc .

So all ITRA is going to offer you at the presentation / consultation is buying into their Club Class Discount Travel Membership! And since last March’11 the alternative product is called  Club Class Services sarl!

And we have to agree this is not misleading?

Are you invited to the ITRA consultation meeting?

    yes, it is a shame that we have. Andrea, Hornchurch. AVOID THEM AT ALL COSTS, they are sharks who are only out to get your money and not give you a nice holiday (if you try to book, they are all fully booked as they are often block booked by companies). I could go on and on…

    Andrea, Hornchurch

    • Hi Andrea, thanks for your message.

    We went down that route & the meeting was with Club Class. They said that they would purchase our Timeshare through Bridgeview Consultants, who apparently have now gone into administration. Anybody else had dealings with this company?
