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!
