Timesharestop, Gone with the Wind

One of the companies that suddenly seem to have disappeared in 2020 is Timesharestop.

Maybe outdated news, but when we reopened our inboxes last month after a year of inactivity, we noticed an awful lot of complaints about the closure and disappearance of Timesharestop at the beginning of 2020.

So it was decided that we still wanted to write a blog warning about this.

For years, Timesharestop was the company that approached mainly Dutch-speaking Timeshare consumers with offers to cancel their timeshare membership and promised a possible recovery of the money paid to the resort.

The company was owned by Rob de V. and Ewald ter H., and they were proud of the fact that they certainly did not do “cold call” and that everything was more than fine.

The fact that they asked quite large amounts for a cancellation of a membership, which in many cases could simply be handled for free, was of course a worrying “red flag”.

Timesharestop even appeared on Dutch TV and advertised in the Transavia magazine and many consumers thought that was proof that everything had to be in order.

It turns out in this case that TV programs and advertisements in well-known magazines is more a matter of spending money than a guarantee of a reliable company.

Timesharestop is now completely closed, the offices are empty, bills have been left unpaid and the managers are difficult (impossible) to contact.

As far as we know, there are dozens of victims who have paid thousands of euros to this company for their service and received nothing.

Many timeshare memberships have not been canceled, so the consumer is still responsible for the maintenance costs and lawsuits against the resorts have not been filed at all.

The Dutch TV program TROS OPGELICHT has made a broadcast about Timesharestop that was broadcast in April 2020.

You can watch the program at the following link:

The Timesharestop website, which remained active for some time, was closed after the broadcast.

In the meantime, an action group of the victims of this company has taken over the domain name https://www.timesharestop.be/
