Vacaciones Genial, the Spanish Travel agent offering Timeshare resales

Another supposed Spanish Travel Agent, Vacaciones Genial has contacted timeshare owners on cold calls.

This supposed Travel Agency based in Spain, Calle Carril Guetara 65, 29004 Malaga, even claims to be registered at the Spanish Companies House. But for as much as we have researched there is no such company by the name of Vacaciones Genial registered.

The phone numbers used by this company are +34 951 248 923 and Fax +34 952 249 943

Email vacaciones-genial@mail.com

There is also mention of a website www.muchoviaje.com but please be assured that this website is certainly not theirs and belongs to a generic reservations engine for holiday bookings.

Vacaciones Genial aims for the “larger” accounts, and their clients are buying in bulk timeshare memberships. And for the timeshare owner who is approached by Vacaciones Genial his lucky day has arrived because the buyer from Switzerland or Austria is purchasing 15 memberships at once!

A very official looking contract is send to the timeshare owner and there is a lot of mentions to Timeshare laws and clauses. Between these clauses all off the sudden there is one that states the timeshare owner has to “deposit a contract deposit of 2250€”

So from no fees at all, it now looks like the Timeshare owner does have to pay money upfront to Vacaciones Genial.

A shame that Vacaciones Genial isn’t aware either of the Timeshare Directive where it clearly states that there should be no payments upfront for a timeshare resale!

If you have been (cold) called by Vacaciones Genial from 0034 951248923 in Malaga, please let us know.

    Ja jeg har blitt kontaktet av Vasasiones Genial adr. Malaga V/ Ken Smith med dette telefon nr.om kjøp av ferierettigheter. Dessverre så har jeg Guglet firmaet for sent, så jeg har betalt inn depositum, til Timeshere organisasjon i Madrid, til Voyanger Gran canari, til Tax Law Madrid tilsammen er det Ca Nok.90,000, men ingen penger på salget har kommet og som jeg nå forstår aldri vil komme. Jeg har alle dokumenter så jeg ønsker å gå videre med saken og håper at noen der ute kan hjelpe meg saken videre. Jeg snakker dårlig Engelsk og ikke Spansk så jeg har problemer med veien videre.
    Håper på svar
