Yesterday the 11th of December, Tony Hetherington placed another article in the Mail on Sunday, questioning ITRA and their dubious business.
The article exposes the testimonial of yet another victim of ITRA who paid money to dispose of their timeshare and ended up with a Club Class Membership and their original timeshare still in their name with maintenance fees adding up each year.
“Mrs L. B. writes: You wrote about your unease over Bridge View Consultants Ltd and International Timeshare Refund Action (ITRA). We met Bridge View in 2010 to discuss how we were mis-sold a timeshare in Tenerife. Then the hard sell began.
They played heavily on the fact that our timeshare involves a perpetuity clause and to safeguard our daughter from this we should buy membership of Club Class International’s holiday discount scheme. Club Class would then take over our timeshare and pay its future maintenance fees.
We paid £7,800 for this and Club Class did pay the 2010 timeshare fee, but recently its phone number has been unavailable and emails are unanswered. We then received an email from Club Class in Spain or Gibraltar, saying Club Class International was in liquidation and we would be contacted by ITRA, but we have heard nothing.”

Quiet correctly Tony Hetherington questions the fact that the Business Secretary Vince Cable has started High Court proceedings to have a whole network of Club Class companies wound up in the public interest. This follows a complex investigation by the Insolvency Service, but there is no mention of ITRA, which despite being active in Britain is also registered in the Seychelles, though confusingly a separate ITRA has been registered on Spain’s Costa del Sol.
As previously denounced on this blog, we know that ITRA is closely tied to Club Class. Even if ITRA folds, at least one more company has been set up with the same sales methods. We should know more early next year when the court case against Club Class is likely to be heard.
