Timeshare Adventures, a St. Petersburg, Florida based timeshare resale company operating from 2004, claims to assist timeshare owners with advertising and selling their timeshares on the resale market.
Timeshare Adventures Reviews
Timeshares Only reviews online are mostly negative. As of 2/18/2019, Timeshares Only has been given a “D” ranking and 26 complaints on BBB, although their aggregate rating is 4.5 (out of 5) stars. This is because the positive reviews are from customers who either bought or rented a timeshare from the business, not those who used their resale service. The company also has a 1 (out of 5) star Yelp rating, and a 1.4 (out of 5) star rating on Consumer Affairs (as of 2/18/2019.) Negative reviews mention the company charging high upfront fees and never selling the timeshare or following up regualrly with the client.
Timeshare Adventures Cost For Services
The Timeshare Adventures cost is not displayed on their own website, but it is clear that they charge up-front fees for their service. Because most timeshares lose 50-90% of their value as soon as the contract is signed, as evidenced by the plethora of $1 Ebay timeshare listings with no active bids online, the fact that the company charges up-front fees to simply advertise a timeshare that may never sell is something to be wary of. Additionally, reviews mention the Timeshares Only cost being ridiculous, from $650-$1,200.
Timeshare Adventures is not a recommendable company to work with. The sad truth of the matter is that it is very difficult to resell a timeshare, whether you are assisted by a company or not. If your timeshare is not one of the rare ones that holds most of its value, such as those by Disney Vacation Club, you are likely better seeking aid from a timeshare exit company, which can help you completely cancel your contract instead of selling it.
It is important to be aware that you should only work with a timeshare exit company that offers a low up-front fee escrow payment option, which allows for customers to pay for the company’s service to a third-party holding account that only releases the funds to the business once the timeshare is successfully cancelled. Using a low up-front fee escrow payment option is the only absolutely secure way to ensure protection from fraud and does not require you to pay the company any direct, up-front fees, which always runs the risk of the company disappearing without a trace with your money.
