Principle Travel Online is a supposed Discount Travel Club who is buying Timeshare inventory for their members. They appear on the “scene” after a Timeshare owner has been approached by the company Chesterton Consultants for a resale of their timeshare. But after paying Chesterton Consultants a fee to complete the sale (an illegal upfront deposit), the sale falls through and a new buyer has to be sought.
And there you go, that will be Principle Travel Online!
This is not a new pitch at all, and we have seen this before happening in the past years with other dubious sales companies. But lately several companies have again started with this “modus operandi” and people need to be warned.
Again we are looking at a combination of several companies who seem to be passing the clients details on after getting money out of them, and certainly not complying with the services offered. Passing on the details, or they are simply the same people, sitting in a same call room but pretending to be “another company”.
Principle Travel Online has their pitch ready on how successful they are and how many people they are sending on holidays through their “oh so successful” holiday club. All the Timeshare owner needs to do is pay £1500 for a supposed Transfer Document that needs to be supplied by the resort and stamped at the Notary.
But who would not pay £1500 for a form if this will result in a Timeshare sale which will give the timeshare owner a substantial sum for his membership plus the refund of the money paid to Chesterton Consultants?
Contact details for Principle Travel Online are a phone number 0203 740 9450 and an email address firstname.lastname@example.org which surprisingly is not linked to a proper domain. Something one would expect from a highly successful holiday company…
As the whole story starts dubious from the beginning, cold calls, illegal upfront fees and guaranteed sales falling through…we certainly have no doubt that the rest of the story will be any different.
If you paid an upfront fee to Chesterton Consultants or any other resale company that promised a guaranteed sale, and they are now telling you that Principle Travel Online is going to take the sale for you, DO NOT pay a penny more and please let us know about this.
