Were You Mis-Sold Club La Costa Timeshare, Points or Fractional ownership?

Were you Mis-Sold Club La Costa Timeshare?

In 2015, the Spanish Supreme Court made ground-breaking judgments on Timeshare mis-selling, ordering that a full refund of €40,000 Euros be paid back to a customer. Several laws had been broken, including selling a timeshare contract that ran for more than 50 years (or in perpetuity), using high pressure sales tactics and taking deposits and/or arranging finance for customers without observing a cooling-off period.

This landmark legal victory, and the wave of similar Court judgments against many other Timeshare Resorts/Groups that have followed (including a record recent refund of €53,000) have set important legal precedents and have opened the floodgates for claims against Club La Costa and other groups on the grounds that the contracts were mis-sold and are not valid.

It is important to find out your rights so, to see how to get out of your Club La Costa contract and to see if you also qualify to claim your money back, please complete the Timeshare Release Wizard form now.

MR & MRS F - Silverpoint


Here is a selection of recent comments from other CLC Timeshare owners who have contacted us for help:

Mr & Mrs C – Club La Costa

“We did a survey over the phone and told we won a free holiday for 7 nights in Spain (Malaga). We were told to pay £99 for the holiday. We don’t remember being told about the cooling off period but felt pressured to get into the contract. We were promised that the contract will be 19 years and our property will be sold and we would benefit. We feel the paying of maintenance fees is unfair as we already pay towards our property as promised. We have used the service three times and had a poor experience. Always pressurised to purchase more.”

Mr & Mrs M – Club La Costa Fractional

“First contacted when on an exchange through RCI… Pressured, in so much as told deal would only last that day. Promised this was an investment with a good return. Completely assured this was an investment in a piece of property. Misrepresentation of Fractional points… totally deceived by selling process.”

Mr & Mrs E – Club La Costa Fractional

“We asked at least 4 times could we get out at anytime without any problem re payment and were told there was no problem. Any holiday apart from one has been more expensive with CLC. Points system seems to make very little difference to the price. We were not advised as far as we were aware of any cooling off period. Very very pressured to buy – not even being “allowed” to go to feed small children. Used the product once only – not impressed.”

Mr & Mrs S – Club La Costa

“Finance was taken out immediately with no time to go away and think about it. Pressure to take it out straight away. Places in the brochure were not actually included in our package after booking to go there and told at time of purchase that they were. We were not informed of a cooling off period or that our fees would increase. Only used 4 times and first time we booked a lodge, when we arrived we were put in a room and was told the lodge was extra again after being informed at initial meeting and purchase that they were included. Was told it was a cheaper way of having holidays as opposed to booking a travel package but actually after you pay all the extra hidden fees that is not the case.”

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.

Recent comments from RCI Timeshare owners who have come to us for help with contract cancellation:

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.”
