July has been a very hot month in Spain but this hasn’t affected the dubious companies out there as it seems as we have received almost a record amount of inquiries.
The blog closed the month with a record amount of visitors, 41.570 people who at some point during the month decided to read our articles.
And over 520 new inquiries arrived at our inbox!
We have to highlight the recently published article about DTMC’s (Discount Travel Membership Club) who seem to have found a way to avoid working by the New Timeshare Directive.
Some marketers of Holiday Clubs such as Voyager Travel, Club Class and the recently launched Break Away Destinations are basically not respecting the new Timeshare Directive, taking deposits and not respecting any kind of cooling off period (by law 14 days).
These companies are pretending to sell holiday clubs which have a duration of less than one year, when in fact their contract indicate that this holiday club membership can continue being used for more than one year, as long as a yearly payment is made, what according to the Timeshare Directive would fall under its legislation.

Another issue that seems to be going very strong at the moment is the so called Class Action Companies.
If before it was mainly ITRA (http://wp.me/p1kmoi-pe), EFTAG (http://wp.me/p1kmoi-nZ) and Reclaimgc (http://wp.me/p1kmoi-dW), there are now numerous others that also seem to have discovered the business in offering a class action to consumers and invite them over for a meeting. Meetings where apart from a Class Action the consumer will find himself with a sales presentation for yet another Membership in some kind of dubious holiday club and / or an offer for timeshare disposal against payments of large amount of money..
If you have been approached by any of these companies or any other that has offered you information about Class Actions, please do let us know.
