About Timeshare / Vacation Clubs

1. I am interested in purchasing a timeshare, but everyone tells me negative things.

Contrary to popular opinion, timeshares are not a scam. Rather, it is a way of ensuring a price freeze for your vacations in the coming years. This type of service usually works with memberships and regulations that must be clearly and contractually outlined. However, its "bad reputation" is due to misleading advertising and aggressive marketing techniques that have been resorted to by many providers.

2. What are the most common deceptive practices in timeshare?

• Presenting timeshare purchase as an investment or a property right.
• Making you believe that you are participating in or winning contests, giveaways and prizes.
• Presentations at luxury hotels (which are usually not included in the service) in exchange for breakfast, excursions or "free" services.
• Brochures that falsify the quality of accommodation, the total prices or terms and conditions of service and cancellation forms.

3. I am signing the contract, but I do not know what aspects I should consider to determine if I am getting a good deal.

Before signing the contract, please make sure you have the answers to the following questions:
• What is the total price of the service?
• Are there any additional fees or restrictions for foreigners? 
• Should there be financing, how much is the CAT? 
• How many times a year I can use it? 
• What services will be provided in each development? 
• Is the occupation period fixed or variable? 
• Do I need to book? How far in advance? 
• Do I have the right to rent it, sell it, trade it or donate it?- What are the available destinations and in which countries? 
• Are there any other additional fees or restrictions?
• How many days are allowed in which to cancel the service after signing the contract?

4. How do I know when a development is not a member of Adeprotur?

Please review our list of affiliated resorts or look for certification on the sales floor of the development to authenticate it as a member of our association.

5. I am looking for support to clarify some situations with a development that is not one of your members, can Adeprotur help me?
