It was announced already over a year ago, but finally the wound up has taken place of the company:
LEISURE ALLIANCE PLC (Company Number 6258) Registered office: PO Box 1137, 2nd Floor Allied Buildings, Francis Rachel Victoria, Mahe, SEYCHELLES

This is one of the many companies belonging to the Club Class Group of Companies we have seen over the past year being wound up.
It is still surprising though that with the same speed the companies are wound up, the Group of Club Class adds more company names to their list.
We have seen Club Class changing into Gr8stays, and ITRA the International Timeshare Refund Action into ECC the European Claims Centre.
Former Club Class members are now receiving payment requests in RED Envelopes from Gr8stays, even when they have never agreed or signed to change into this club. Apart from the fact of course that in their agreement it doesn’t even mention an obligation to pay yearly or pay a substantial amount to “cancel” the agreement.
And as far as the ITRA side of the company concerns, a wide range of company names have passed the scenes, and most of them even denying having anything to do with the others.
We have Victoria Marketing, The Refund Action, Timeshare Advice Centre and Timeshare Release cold calling to invite people over to meetings where they would discuss a No Win no Fee claim against their resort.
But all the meetings end up in the same places, the place where the ITRA representative is welcoming them. Well it is no longer ITRA of course, as they are now the ECC, the European Claims Centre, as they like to call themselves.
In Spain there is another variation as well, as the offices in Marbella are working under the name of R.A.Consultants or R.A. Marbella
- How are consumers expected to keep up with this all?
- Why are the authorities not looking into this?
- Don’t they receive enough complaint?
When these companies are exposed in the press as we have seen happening with ITRA, they just change the names completely and register a new company name in a far away country…
Take ECC, a company that uses the word “European” in their name. How odd is it that the company in reality is registered in the USA? Their address is 3400 Capitol Blvd. s, Ste, 101 Olympia, WA98501
Or the R.A.Consultants who are registered at the Dubai Trade Center, P.O.Box 48904, office 1602, Dubai, UAE
Good luck trying to find them at these addresses!
Our understanding of running a business is that when a company is good for their customers, provide the services offered in their agreements, deliver the promises they do at their meetings and are as successful as they say they are….there is NO need to change the company name!
The contrary! You want to create a brand that stands out, you want to be the company that when people hear the name they say, “Yes, these people helped me out indeed!”
But obviously that is not the case with the above company group, as all they do is hide behind different names, to make sure people are not going to find them on the Internet when doing their research prior to attending their meetings or paying for their services.
Leisure alliance Plc might have been wound up, but there is a long list still to go through…
Have had several letters from gr8 stays demanding late fees and now penalty of £20:00 per day !
Have ignored them as I never signed up to them in first place Seems like they got my details from Club Class membership ( yes I was fooled too )
I had a call ( via answer machine) from Phil Hill , saying I had ignored them and that I now owe £3750. To date and I should call them to discuss payment. Mentioned bailiffs turning up.
As Club Class wound up some time ago I will not pay them or co- operate with them let them take me to court !
well just had a conversation (20 min on phone) with a lady who informed i was entitled to £5760.50p compensation for my miss sold club class sapphire membership. bearing in mind i only paid £1800 i queried the amount, she said she would find out and get back to me. today she calls back and says its correct, they pay the same amount to all members regardless of monies paid out, some get more (me) some less. also informs me i have to pay 11% up front for the Spanish vat. no solicitors, cannot take the money from the compensation. just pay it into this account/bank and ill get the payment in 21 days, lol lol i declined saying i felt there were no safeguards for my money, they expect me to transfer £700 into an account of someone i had never heard of till 4 days ago. at this point, she turned quite aggressive and i hung up. scammers seem to be all over this club class debacle, this was the 4th time i have been approached since the bankruptcy.
Can you please give us some advice we were members of club class and liesure allienance we start getting letters from g r 8 stays Holiydays saying we owe my membership payments for membership unpaid from 2015 we have just had three letters this month one for overdue payment then one final notice and today one with a letter from a company called LRC legal representatives can you in form us in this matter do I need to pay this or is it a scare to get money out of us
Fantastic news. Now what about their other associates?
And not too soon – when are they going to go for Gr8stays???
Hopefully its won’t be to long for gr8stays as I’ve just reported them to Trading Standards and BEIS for sending me a doctored copy of my original contract and emailing it to me in a vain attempt to extort the alleged debt from me. We need more people reporting them or it could take a while before they get investigated.
