Exclusive weeks, another fly buy Company belonging to the Easy Consulting Group


There is a lot of activity with the cold calling fly buy companies, who all seem to be on a mission to book the winter space in the timeshare resorts.

Numerous new names pop up daily and the offers are becoming more and more promising.

One of these names that popped up is from the company Exclusive Weeks. This company is cold calling and as all the others, offers luxury accommodation worldwide for really competitive prices.

It is always recommendable though to do research on the web and make sure that the Terms and Conditions are clear before paying any money towards these kinds of offers.

Exclusive Weeks has a website where these Terms and Conditions can be looked up http://exclusiveweeks.co.uk/tandc.php

It is clear that Exclusive Weeks is part of the Easy Consulting Group, a group to which a lot of other cold calling companies belong such as Bonus Weeks Breaks, The Gift Company, Extra Weeks, Anu Corporate, Easy Consulting, The All Inclusive Club, Direct Resort International, Sponsored Weeks and Sponsored Breaks.

What these companies have in common with Exclusive weeks is the cold call and the fact that it is not always made clear that the Holiday Presentation is an obligation, you need to travel in a couple and you cannot take two weeks together.

Not to mention that often people are given the impression that the cold calling company has something to do with their timeshare resort or exchange company.

Please always do your research before handing over through the phone your credit card details for offers that sound too good to be true.

If you have been approached by Exclusive Weeks from 0800 198 4001 or 0800 070 5116 then please let us know.

    I have paid for 8 weeks accommodation with this company on the understanding that we could take our dog to Scotland next August for our son’s wedding. We were also told the weeks would be valid indefinitely and no further fees payable. The confirmation came through with an expiry date of October 2020. This was queried and told it would roll over. We have had the same happen before with All Inclusive and Extra time on line who constantly ask for more money! I was told there would be a short product update at the accommodation but not a full presentation. I informed them this would not be practical as our dog would be barking. I suspect we’ve been sca**** again. I think I should cancel the credit card payment.
    Thanks for any advice you can give

    I was contacted by a charming Dutch gentleman last night. He intimated that he was in contact with Mac Donald co .We had a 3 weeks time share with them but could not re sell our weeks
    so eventually had to pay £6,ooo to MacDonalds to get rid of them. We had the weeks for 20 years but increasing maintenance costs and our age made it impossible to use the weeks. I asked for their offer to be emailed to me and he knew my email gen without asking me for it. How?
    Tels forwarded were; 0800 198 4001 and 0800 070 5116.

    • Pascale says:

      Yes, contacted by Exclusive weeks on 0800 070 5116, signed up for 3 breaks for 130 Euros on my Mastercard.

      Can I get my money back as I used a Credit card?

      • Pascale says:

        Also, I have an activation form to complete before the end of the month or my account will be cancelled without recompense.

  3. Christine says:

    Exclusive weeks rang tonight, I said I was a member of sponsored weeks and she put the phone down. They are all the same firm, I have paid twice, cant believe it! Had 3 nights in Stratford on Avon and the most awful EZE group presentation to attend, lasted all day nearly. Then a nice few days in the lake district, with a pleasant short talk to attend. I have now 5 weeks outstanding to take, but sadly cant go to Barcelona with them as I have already attended an EZE group talk. (No timeshare means the British resorts are out for us). I`m having to pay for myself at the same hotel they use as already done an EZE group talk within the last three years. They don’t tell you when you are buying the weeks, its hard, and I want to go to Madeira, but that’s not available for me for some reason.

  4. Val says:

    I was called by this company last night on 01223646291. They said I was entitled to 3 weeks holiday for £99 as I was in the Diamond Group. She said part of my maintenance fees were held back.by my timeshare company for offers such as these!!! I told her my fees had nothing to do with any other company. I said this was just a c** and I would check with my resort. I didn’t bother as I knew it was a sc**. She then said I had to pay £118 or I would lose these weeks. Told her I wasn’t interested. I have received many calls like this and they are so annoying!


  5. Owen says:

    Exclusive Weeks. Address on their website does not include this company as a tenant. All they do is cold call to say you have weeks already booked and you’ll lose them if you don’t pay more money. Even if you ask them not to call again they keep on.

  6. Brian says:

    Yes we’ve been contacted a number of times from the 0800 0705116 number. We have been assured that it is not Timeshare, there is no obligation to attend any “sales” meeting and we can choose to upgrade to fully inclusive for just a few Euro’s extra. Needless to say we are not interested but they will not take NO for an answer.

  7. Jill says:

    I was contacted by them yesterday; I wasn’t 100% certain they were legit but listened to what she said. She said that I’d already paid £900 towards “extra holidays” and if I didn’t book soon I would lose them. I said I wasn’t in any position to book a holiday and so she asked if I wanted her to “delete” them from the system (I had already asked if I could see what she was referring to on the RCI website, but she said no, which obviously raised a red flag in my mind), I told her yes, go ahead and delete them. I’m sure this tactic works to get people to hastily book an extra holiday for fear of losing out, but I’m afraid she hung up without getting a sale from me.

  8. Mervyn says:

    Just been cold called from 01223646291 for the fourth time (ignored the earlier 3 as did not recognise the number) to be told I was entitled to book free weeks because part of the maintenance fee I paid for my timeshare went towards this entitlement to free weeks! When I hesitated and said I had not heard of this she persisted for a while then just hung up! Didn’t even say Goodbye – how rude! I guessed it was a sc**, and so it seems.

  9. Gill says:

    We have this morning been contacted by exclusive weeks and they have given me the 0800 079 5116 number this morning.

    We have not done anything with them & won’t be doing either. When will these people give up?

  10. Ve says:

    If you have been approached by Exclusive Weeks from 0800 198 4001 or 0800 070 5116 then please let us know.

    Just been called by this company. Is it a sc**.

  11. Owen says:

    Just called by them. Initially said they were Diamond Resorts, when questioned said that they are sold weeks by the resorts as a gift to regular clients but soon went onto me having to buy the weeks. Rather worrying that they knew my telephone number and email address. Told them I wasn’t interested but then received an email thanking me for my interest. 1471 indicated 01223 646291. Resorts Direct?

  12. Maureen says:

    This company are still calling ,a Lucy Edwards was very persuasive and I almost went on to purchase 4 weeks for the price of 3. She told me there was a vast choice of resorts 41 in Tenerife alone. There would definitely not be any presentations and the company are ABTA registered. I have read the terms and conditions and no reference to ABTA registered and definitely a presentation to attend which if you fail to attend could result in being charged the full rate for the accommodation. No untruths in that cold call then! Beware.

  13. John says:

    We have been cold called by Matthew Cooper from Exclusive Weeks. Having read the comments/advice n this website have decided not to touch his proposal. Using 0800 070 5116.

  14. Nick says:

    I stupidly paid these sca***** £118 by credit card before discovering that their offer was conditional on attending a sales presentation. They have refused to refund the money and as the travel industry appears to be exempt from Distance Selling Regulations, it looks as if they are going to get away with it. Very annoying! Do not have anything to do with them.

  15. Davina says:

    I was called too told it was £99 then added VAT said taking £118 my credit card took £123.73 was told this is because the credit card used a inferior exchange rate they won’t give me a refund of the difference
    The website is rubbish can’t even see any locations in Germany and there are only 2 resorts in America
    Just waiting for a call back to see what they will do next if I don’t get a refund I will contact my credit card

  16. Philip says:

    Just cold-called by a Matthew Cooper from Exclusive Weeks. Offer is 3 weeks available over 3 years at £99/week. All because of my long timeshare ownership.
    Now using phone line 0800 070 5116

  17. faye says:

    Have been called and recalled (at my request) several times; and yes they definitely said they were to do with existing time share, actually told me that the weeks they offered were only because we were such long term/big spenders with existing timeshare. Really glad I found mindtimeshare.me. Offers do sound good though three weeks at £99 per week.

  18. Gill says:

    Just had a call from this company sent him off with a flea in his ear. He certainly didn’t want to take no for an answer

  19. Stephen says:

    This company cold called me today but used a different telephone number 08000243199. I take its a scam.

  20. Elizabeth says:

    I have just paid £118 for 3 weeks on my credit card. Is this not a genuine offer as I will put up with a presentation as I have no intention of buying more timeshare. Will they honor the weeks or is it a scam? Website is www,exclusiveweeks.com

    • Cynthia says:

      We paid them last year but cannot get hold of them to book anything as their answerphone asks you to ring back in office hours (Mon-Fri 9-5) even when you ARE ringing at those times! Am about to check how we paid for this and if it is misselling will try to claim it back on credit card

  21. Mark says:

    Avoid any of these companies like the plague.

    We paid them around £1,000 for a membership and received a full refund from our credit card refund under the misselling act.

  22. Julia says:

    I have been ****** into buying 4 weeks from exclusive weeks
