Travel Promotions, selling Timeshare on the Russian market.

We published an article on this blog about Travel Promotions in August 2011. But as they are still active and we continue to receive a lot of inquiries about this company and their offer, we thought it was time to do an update. Travelpromo

Travel Promotions (www.travelpromotions.info) cold calls timeshare owners and offers them a resale for their timeshare.

Travel promotions is linked to other companies mentioned in a previous blog and all operating from Tenerife: http://wp.me/p1kmoi-5i

Travel promotions claim to have good contacts with the Russian Market and explain the consumer how well this Russian Market is going at present with many new rich people who all want to buy into Holiday Ownership.

An offer that cannot be resisted!

Travel Promotions claims that through their Russian website http://www.holidaytimeshare.ru/   timeshares are selling in maximum 6 months’ time.

In order to publish the Timeshare on this Russian website the consumer is asked to purchase 2 weeks of Holidays from Travel Promotions for the discounted price of £580.

The Timeshare owner is assured that he is not paying for the actual sale as he will have 2 weeks of holidays for £580 apart from the fact his timeshare is going to be sold quickly.

Unfortunately those consumers who paid the £580 ended up indeed with 2 weeks of holidays to book, but the timeshare has not been sold.

It looks like a clever way to sell Fly Buy holiday weeks to consumers who don’t really need these weeks in the first place!

    Hi, I too had the whole s*** of selling to the Russian market, and again it was £295 per week, and they wanted me to purchase five weeks, I declined and counter offered that I would buy three, and then buy the other two once they sold the timeshare, to which they agreed. Then like others it remained up for sale, and then about a year after, when I kept chasing them about why it was getting hits, so say enquiries but no offers or sale, they then offered me an all expenses weekend paid trip to the offices in Bournemouth, where they presented an opportunity to purchase a lot of credits, in exchange for relinquishing my three timeshares, which they advised it would potentially take 3 – 4 months to complete, this was in February 2013, and in April 2013 I handed over £13400 for the thousands of credits in Monster Travel, which was paid to a separate company that cannot be found on the net, then apparently in August this year (2014) they will be allowing you to resale the credits for 8p each, 6p is refunded back to me, and the other 2p is pocketed by Monster Travel, apparently it costs 10p per credit currently for members to purchase them for flights, holidays, hotels etc. However its been 8 months since handing all this money over, and so far still no relinquishment of the timeshares. Total wasters I suspect but like others, we just want rid of the timeshares, but it appears that the only way to get out of them is to default and take the risk of your credit rating being affected.

    I have just had them ring me after my initial enquiry, as yet, I am waiting for an evaluation, but the story is the same, sounds too good to be true, and from experience, it probably is

    Tonight got a call from Monster.travel saying they can sell my time share to the Russians as they are the ones with the money all I have to do is spend £1500 with them for that I will get 15000 credits which I can use to buy holidays, flights, and so on from them.Hour and 15 mins on the phone telling me how good they are and how they dont charge for selling our time share and its the buyer who pays them the fee.All this sounds like ****** but need to know if it is, can any one tell me if its all ********. They are calling me back Monday to tell me what its worth and I reckon they will want £1500 from me at the same time, what about 14 days cool off time …………any views on this please let me have them.

    I put my timeshare up for sale through this lot 15 months ago. The deal was I had to pay for 3weeks’ holidays at £295 each. Before sending any money, I chose a resort for last year’s summer holiday (2 weeks), checked the resort’s own website, checked that the resort did actually deal with the agency.

    I figured that £295 was quite cheap for a week’s holiday in July, and if I could be sure I would get my fortnight, then even if the agency did a runner and I never got the third week, well 2 weeks for £885 isn’t too bad either. I wasn’t planning to use my own timeshare, so I was looking for a holiday somewhere.

    The snag – there just had to be one! Once I had paid and the agency tried to confirm my chosen holiday, they came back to me saying that there is a surcharge – charged by the resort, not the agency. A hefty €660 per week! So I checked with the resort, and their list price was €660. But it seemed the agency was going to pocket the £295 pw. I complained, and the surcharge was reduced so that my total weekly price was €660.

    The agency still have my last £295 and it remains to be seen if they honour it. But they have given me extra weeks as compensation for all the hassle I had trying to get my holiday at a fair price. Two at first, then two more later on. So I have 5 left.

    In dealing with my complaint, the agency did seem to be genuinely trying to sort out an unusual problem. They made nothing out of the two weeks I rented, and they have given me more.

    We had a lovely holiday in a French ski resort. The resort and the agency no longer deal with each other!

    I have always been somewhat doubtful about the alleged Russian buyers and the very high prices which they are reportedly prepared to pay. Sure enough, when I checked today, my timeshare is still advertised on the Russian website. But I have always been of the view that so long as I get the rental weeks I have paid for, selling would be a bonus.

    I have had my timeshare with this company on their Russian Website since March 2011. Needless to say, there has been no sale. Caught again. They are very persuasive – take my tip – don’t listen to them.
