    I purchased 4 weeks and received one week free! I informed their rep that we did not fly nor travel long distances but tended to holiday as far down as The Peak District, far enough from Ayrshire for us! , due to health issues. He suggested Pine Lake in Lancashire which we had already used and liked. On receiving details of their website we found that Pine Lake did not feature and that there were only 13 resorts in the UK, 3 of which suited our requirements. I tried to cancel but have been told that is not possible since UK resorts are available. I pointed out that we were quoted a resort which they don’t even have access to and was told that this didn’t mean they would never have access to it! As far as I am concerned, this is mis-selling since they offered facilities which they do not have. Taking advice and will wait and see.

    I went on a short break organised by them to the white swan at Henley in Arden the accommodation was very nice staff friendly We went B B. Breakfast was superb. We ate in the dining room one evening Lovely meal ( at additional cost). That was all we paid for accommodation inc breakfast was free. We attended the promotional exhibition
    that was fun I picked holes in every thing they tried to sell us so did not buy anything. Well worth the time spent to have a short break for free.
    I have since purchased 4 week for £358.00 inc VAT The biggest rip of is the VAT
    Look forward to using them if the last one was anything to go by.

      HI Mike did you use your weeks purchased? I paid about the same amount as you in 2016, for an upgrade after having two breaks Stratford upon Avon Sept 2015 and Brockwood Hall Lake district May 2016. ( cost £228) I am cross with myself as I have had trouble finding anything suitable to go to. They cold call and pester me for more money for discount tickets, and ask why I havent used any of my 5 weeks. well, I cant go to Barcelona as that’s EZE group again, I cant have another talk( thank goodness) and most in Spain and Tenerife are, or you need to have a timeshare for the English and Scottish resorts.

    Over the years I have been a complete and utter fool spending thousands with said companies one or other working against the other to get your money. I have bipolar and was first contacted at my lowest. Recently it’s the “concierge” charges approx. £40 year, (excuse my spelling) I can’t think of going abroad as I can’t afford it or even look forward to trying to organise it as it could cause a relapse. They also provide the Best of British holidays but these have their ties so after losing all the money I could ill afford to spend at the time as it was for food, vehicle repairs etc their persuading was overwhelming and made me sick.

    I received a cold call from sponsoredweeks from 01695318006, I told them I was not interested and I was a member of the TPS and it was illegal to phone me. They ignored me, they talked non stop trying to sell their holidays, I called them scammers and put down the phone.
    I have complained to TPS and they have taken notice of my comments and are contacting this company. My advice to everyone is to put the phone down and ignore them, do not take up any of their offers.

    I would like to know if anyone has taken sponsored break up on their offer as it seems tempting

    • adam says:

      Don’t do it you will have constant phone call trying to sell you more things and when you try to use them they seem to be able to point out some reason it their terms and conditions that stops you from getting what you want. I booked flights on the say so that I could have a weeks accommodation only to find that I had to fly to an airport that was 3 times the price as Alicante but my flights were already booked.
      Leave well alone

  6. Paul says:

    Don’t touch it with a barge pole. I was stupid enough to pay & all they are doing is selling people’s timeshare that couldn’t or won’t be used. By the time you take into account the upfront fee, booking fee and airport taxes it’s more expensive than booking a flight & going to the resort yourself which when analysing the list the time quality is B grade. Please FB to everyone you know that this is a legal **** pressure sold with No Refund available as they have studied the law & found a loop hole.

    3/9. Just been contacted by Sponsor weeks who offered me 2 separate weeks to take anytime up to 2017. Didn’t have a clue who they were and felt very uneasy when asked for payment of £459.
    Has anyone actually used them? Are they legitimate?

  8. Caroline says:

    not sure what to think.. they seem very nice, and are persistent in the calls, they have been in touch for months on and off, and keep offering me very good deals.. I have stayed at some of the resorts they offer… but not through them…
    I have called my bank to raise a dispute, if my money is tried to be taken under any false pretences. and aired my concern with said company.
    Are they Abta registered?? and what insurance of a holiday do I get, if I were to pay the money?? they have promised a few holidays within my package… but I need to know more… is it advisable to contact the resorts myself, and ask about prior booking through this company… ??
    I’m worried, that I may lose my money.. does anyone have any experience with actually booking through these guys??

  9. Donna says:

    I was contacted by them tonight and when I asked if they were a holiday club or timeshare they said no. I asked if I’d have yo attend a meeting, they said no. They gave me their website and will call back another night. Cannot wait for the callback, obviously she has not read their own terms and conditions. I will gladly refer her to paragraph 19 which states you will have to attend a morning or afternoon exhibition and refusal to do so means you will be charged full price.

  10. Loyala says:

    I have been contacted by sponsoredweeks. I am not happy to pay upfront £229 which would enable me to then book a holiday, which looks like a very good deal. If a deal looks to good to be true, then it isn’t. What security will I have re my money? Is this a scam?
