Atlantis Escapes actually offers to buy the timeshare off you straight away. So that saves time in looking for a proper buyer.
In order to do this Atlantis Escapes does need a security fee to be paid of £1200, upfront.
What a shame, because this is against the Timeshare Directive and is certainly not a correct way of acting for a resale company.
Who is Atlantis Escapes?
They have a website www.atlantisescapes.com which was registered on the 28th of April 2013, so very recent.
On the website they give all kinds of info about Holiday Accommodation, Timeshare resales and purchases etc.
Claiming to be highly professional and a registered company, the web actually does lack the Company Registration number.
As address they indicate: Calle Padre Esplá 0 S/N 03013 Alicante, Spain
Although they are not very clear on the web what payment is required upfront, a mention of a supposed Escrow Account and the possibility to pay the fees by cheque or bank transfer does not leave a lot of space for doubts.
What never ceases to surprise us is the fact that a company claiming to be reselling timeshare like Atlantis Escapes has not one single Timeshare for sale offer on the web. Where do they get their customers and how do people know what they are selling?
Seen the above, we really recommend to be cautious with this one and please do let us know if you have been contacted already by Atlantis Escapes from 634008408 or 634009732 in Alicante.
