A new alert goes out for an apparent new marketer of ITRA in the UK called HSW UK
This company Holiday Software UK visits timeshare consumers at home to explain all about ITRA (http://wp.me/p1kmoi-95) and their class action, and as an “extra” the consumer can also dispose of their timeshare by buying into a HSWUK.
HSW UK, Holiday Software UK which seems to be a brand new company is selling a supposed “travel agent software” to consumers with the pitch they will be able to book holidays at retail prices.
The software is offered by the agents who actually cold calls timeshare consumers first to make an appointment for a visit at the owner’s home and explain everything about disposing of your timeshare, and joining ITRA!
So we have a cold caller, obviously knowing you own timeshare, offering to visit you at home and explains how to sell / dispose of the timeshare and how to recuperate some of the money paid by joining the Class Action from ITRA, and then Holiday Software UK is brought into the pitch, a company which seems to be willing to sell the timeshare and take over the maintenance liability.
Wow, that’s a lot of information in 1 visit! What is that all about??
The agent explains that HSW (UK) will sell the timeshare onto Gulliver’s Travellers (although the paperwork the consumers received said Sumday Vacations). And for this service HSW (UK) would require £2295 for transfers and various other fees totaling up to about £6000
HSWUK has a website www.hswuk.com, with nice pictures and stunning hotels, but it actually doesn’t tell you much. They explain they have a 25-year reputation for innovative travel, and for an online travel agent, it is quite amazing they only set up the website in June 2011!
There is NO contact telephone number, NO address, NO NOTHING on this website! That is obviously not complying with the legal requirements for a website!
HSWUK is the “company” or “marketer” for ITRA, but the actual software they sell is called Gulliver’s Holiday Software Program and for more confusion; on the tab for contacting the Help Center you are asked to fill in your details so the DVLC Help center can contact you.
So the only way of contact is a form you can fill in, and then you are supposed to wait for them to contact you.
Once you sign up there is a mention of an email: firstname.lastname@example.org and an address: Holiday Software UK, 100 New Bond Street, Mayfair, London WS1 1SP
Please… has anybody had dealings with any of the companies mentioned above? We would like to hear from you!
