A new cold caller on the block, although we would say that the calls are not that cold and the weeks probably are not that hot as they claim to be.
Consumers who received the cold call from the company Hot Weeks, were told that they still had weeks “available” through their timeshare membership.
The agent from Hot Weeks knew exactly where the consumer had their ownership and claims that because of the ownership they are allocated Bonus weeks each year.
These bonus weeks if not used, will expire but Hot Weeks will be able to “recover” them.
Hot Weeks openly mentions their connection to the different timeshare resorts and RCI and claims to have access to the same resorts.
Their address is: EBC Third Floor 207 Regent Street London W1B 3HH. And they are calling from: 01633 928 032 and 0800 0146 370 or 0239 365 0118
The website for Hot Weeks is www.hotweeks.co.uk and was registered at the end of 2015.
On the web there is NO mention of any company registration or registration number, and neither are there any privacy policies.
The terms and conditions displayed on the web are the usual ones for the so called “fly buy” offers, so they include the obligation to notify them if you are a timeshare owner (which they already seem to know anyway), age of 25 years or older and attending a meeting during your stay.
There doesn’t seem to be an age limit, which is surprising and very often the main issue when companies like this approach elderly consumers who pay for the accommodation and then are told they cannot go to certain destinations because of their age!
For as attractive as some of these offers might seem, consumers have to be careful always with any cold caller that seems to have more information that they should!
And beware of Hot Weeks in order not to end burned and peeled!
If you have been contacted on a cold call from Hot Weeks, then please do let us know.

I’ve had calls from these today.. Been passed from person to person to person. We are with diamond also..said yes but wasn’t prepared to pay today without investigating the company n to ring back tomorrow. They pushed and pushed for me to give the detail but looks like me standing my ground was the best thing to do.. My other half kept saying if it sounds to good to be true then it normally is.. First it was a week,, then a week with a weekend break,, then 2 weeks.. Then 3 weeks for £344!! All in the click of a fingers!
Was offered same. We paid £198 for 2 weeks!! Can’t even get confirmation of 3 nights in Uk
Hi Maureen, glad you smelt a rat! They tried the same with me a few months back. Someone, somewhere must be selling lists of clients from within Diamond resorts or their agents.
They have taken nearly £900 from my bank account, I am 82 years old how do I get my money back?
I received a call yesterday from a female on behalf of Hot Weeks. She sounded middle aged and had an unpleasant voice which I recognised from a previous cold call. I hung up and did a 1471 which gave her number as 02393 650118, which I believe has been used before.
Two calls received from this company in the last week on phone number 0239 365 0118. Classic story, I had bonus weeks owing. Told them I wasn’t interested and when they asked why, I suggested they do a Google search on their company name. She promptly rang off!
Just had a call from them..told them we no longer owned any timeshares and their reply was “but you still have bonus weeks you can use”! Ended the conversation shortly after as I am just home from hospital after major surgery!!
Exactly the same call as we received a few weeks ago and we are also Diamond Resorts. I immediately suspected a rat, how they get their supposed confidential info from DR is a mystery.
I have been pestered by this “organisation”, they spoke to my wife first and she understood they were speaking on behalf of Diamond Resorts. Then they called again, very pushy and I spoke to a person called Tom Rhodes, he was very evasive when I asked for e-mail confirmation of his offers of 4 weekend breaks in UK for £250 and gave me his personal e-mail address rather than a company e-mail as he said the company e-mail was only basic!! Oh, really! We are not that stupid. They will not get my credit card details.
I have been TOTALLY ri**** off by the company and only found out by noticing a transaction on my bank account. I would avoid at all costs. Daisy is unhelpful and James is so ‘pushy’. Please be warned!!
I have been called and told I can have four short holidays in the UK for £396, or four for the price of three if I paid at the time of the call. I have investigated their website and it looks attractive, but they keep on calling me and I am wary. So I shall not be taking them up on the offer.
I have just had another call from this telephone number, a cheerful-sounding male asked to speak to me so I hung up. A 1471 check showed the number as 01633 928032.
My boyfriend was called on Saturday 12th March 2016 . He did not answer the call as did not recognise the number. After checking ghetto number out on Google we found your comments.
I received a call from a female this afternoon. She asked to speak to Mrs xxx . I said she was at work and female said she would call back. I did a 1471 and the number was 01633 928032 which I checked on google to find this link. My wife is the named person on our Diamond Resorts membership so I presume this female got her details from Diamond or Interval.
