Recently we published an article on this blog about a dubious Timeshare resale company in Madrid called Viajes Directo. As it seems now, this company is now using the name of Direct Travel which is basically the English translation of Viajes Directo.
Name changes of dubious companies always seem to coincide with the dates on which we publish warning blogs…
Direct Travel has the same “modus Operandi” and continues to cold call Timeshare Owners throughout Europe and offers them a guaranteed resale of their Holiday Membership.
The contact details for Direct Travel are:
Address: Plaza de Carlos Trias Bertrán 3, 28020 Madrid – España
Telephone: +34 634 101 963 and Fax: +34 911 811 419
Although displaying the letter S.A. behind their company name, there is certainly no registration at the Spanish Companies House of Direct Travel. Neither are any of the registration numbers displayed on their paperwork such as “Licencia Numero – S.A. 937521/ ES or “Registrado Mercantil – 903-87-GOY-95” real registrations.
As with their “Spanish” branch Viajes Directo, Direct Travel also requires an 8% upfront fee calculated over the sales price. An upfront payment which is illegal as per the Timeshare Directive.
We certainly do not recommend having any dealings with Direct Travel from 0034 634101963 in Madrid.
If this company has approached you then please let us know by sending us an email to email@example.com or simply place a comment on this blog.
Mindtimeshare SLU is registered Company reg number: B35957182 Mindtimeshare provides assistance to timeshare owners who have been defrauded by holiday clubs and bogus resale companies.
The Mindtimeshare project was launched in February 2011.
After dealing with timeshare members over several years who had been defrauded by numerous bogus companies and for large amounts of money, I considered launching an Organisation to help timeshare owners that have been targeted by bogus companies. On this blog you can find information about the different active scam companies and their “modus operandi” and also place comments, ask questions and see comments from other consumers who have the same doubts or have been through the same experience.
Mindtimeshare has resulted in a huge success and has received the back up from not only timeshare consumers but also from the professionals in the timeshare Industry.
Mindtimeshare helps timeshare owners who have been scammed by bogus Discount Holiday Clubs; bogus cash back companies; fraudulent timeshare resale companies; bogus class action companies and false lawyers and notaries. We offer professional answers and advice to Timeshare users.
If you want to send an email instead of posting a comment on the blog please do so by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
