Courts Rule on ANFI Timeshare Mis-Selling

Owners Awarded Refunds of up to €53,000

Were you Mis-Sold an Anfi Timeshare?

In 2015, the Spanish Supreme Court made ground-breaking judgments on Timeshare mis-selling, ordering the Timeshare Group ANFI, of Gran Canaria, to pay a full refund of €40,000 Euros to a customer. Anfi were judged to have broken several laws, including selling timeshare contracts that ran for more than 50 years (or even in perpetuity), and using high pressure sales tactics and taking deposits and/or arranging finance for customers without observing a cooling-off period.

This legal victory, and the wave of similar Court judgments against Anfi and other Timeshare Resorts/Groups that have followed (including a record recent refund of €53,000) have set important legal precedents and mean that many ANFI Timeshare contracts were mis-sold and are not valid.

Selected recent comments from other Anfi customers who have to come us for help:

Mr & Mrs S – Anfi, Gran Canaria

“We came into contact with Anfi during a presentation at our holiday resort in Mas Palomas in 2006. We were offered a no-obligation tour around Anfi with a 42€ thank you whether we joined or not, and were given a taxi ride to Anfi and return to our resort thereafter. We did purchase on the day, were not given a cooling off period and gave an initial deposit of £1,000. We were then talked into changing to Floating weeks x 2 in 2009 and again no cooling off period with a deposit of £1,500. When we asked in 2013 about relinquishing our contract due to financial reasons they said we could not!”

Mr & Mrs G – Anfi

“The timeshare was sold as an investment, something to pass on to our family. We were pressured to buy and sign on the day. Each time we have been to Anfi, we were pressured into upgrading until we have what we have now, then we said no more.”

Mr & Mrs G – Anfi Tauro

“We have a timeshare at Anfi Tauro. During our last visit in November 2016 we understood Anfi had sold its group to Lopesan – we have no idea where we stand for its future. The maintenance fees annually keep going up, we know our children will find it difficult to take these over. Every time we visit we are pushed to upgrade and buy more weeks. Plus we have the inconvenience of Anfi reps chasing clients around Anfi Tauro constantly.”

Mr & Mrs J – Anfi & Cala Pi

“We were sold the product in perpetuity… weeks and points followed by several upgrades. We have since realised that what we were sold is contrary to Spanish law. Whilst on holiday we were approached to sell our existing timeshare and buy Cala Pi. On holiday at Anfi we were also approached to buy timeshare at Monte Anfi. Later on we exchanged Monte Anfi for Anfi Beach. Always approached to upgrade/re-buy etc. This is a part of each holiday as a rep is always assigned to try and review our holidays.”

About Timeshare Release

During the Timeshare sales boom of the 80s & 90s, potential buyers were lured in by the promise of affordable exotic holidays, flexible exchange programmes and the impression that Timeshare would be a valuable "investment".

In an industry with little or no regulation, high pressure sales tactics were rife and contract smallprint was often glossed over and explained away by sharp salespeople.

Many Timeshare buyers were therefore unaware that they were actually making significant, long term financial commitments on behalf of themselves and their families.

To find out how you can escape the Timeshare Trap please complete the short Timeshare Release Wizard now.

The Timeshare Trap

For many Timeshare owners, annual maintenance fees were barely considered token amounts in the early "honeymoon period" of ownership.

However, year-on-year increases imposed by the resorts over time now mean that the maintenance fees have risen to become substantial sums.

Owners are also facing the prospect of ongoing yearly fee increases and realising that they (and their families) are often committed to long term contracts for generations to come.

Please try our Future Fees Calculator to estimate your liabilities over the term of your Timeshare contract, based on an annual increase of 7.5%.

If you're concerned about rising fees and how to escape the Timeshare Trap, please contact us today.

Mr Steve R, Middlesex - RCI/Hollywood Mirage

“We 'swapped ‘another place in Tenerife for this in order to move to the points system. Since then, getting exchanges to desirable resorts proves almost impossible, irrespective of in-season or off-season.”

Mrs Rachael B, Yorkshire - RCI Europe

“I purchased my timeshare in 1999 and have been a timeshare member ever since. More often than not, I have not be able to go where I wanted and have ended up giving a few weeks to Friends, etc to book somewhere they wanted in order not to lose the weeks. I have then stayed in a hotel!! I am desperately trying to get rid of the timeshare and am now paying Timeshare Shop in Manchester to get rid of it for me.”
