In agree­ment over time­share prob­lems

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

WE RE­CENTLY vis­ited fam­ily in South Africa for Christ­mas, hav­ing re­lo­cated to Aus­tralia al­most two years ago.

We read a let­ter to you in The Star in Jan­uary while await­ing our flight back to Aus­tralia.

We to­tally agree with Mr Mood­ley re­gard­ing the sit­u­a­tion of time­share points and the dif­fi­culty in ac­tu­ally be­ing able to utilise th­ese points. Fur­ther­more, the es­ca­lat­ing levies are be­com­ing al­most un­af­ford­able.

When ap­proach­ing the club, they are not very help­ful re­gard­ing dis­pos­ing or “buy­ing back” the points.

When we did man­age to utilise a week at a re­sort about three years ago, we were bom­barded by a “wannabee” high-pow­ered sales­per­son who be­came quite ag­gres­sive and im­pa­tient when we ques­tioned the new scheme he was try­ing to pro­mote and sell, while re­quest­ing doc­u­men­ta­tion to study.

We do have the op­tion of us­ing th­ese points over­seas but, de­spite the high levies, the ex­change fee is also high and one can al­most pay a full rental for sim­i­lar ac­com­mo­da­tion with­out own­ing points.

Un­for­tu­nately, we did not see your ini­tial ar­ti­cle on time­share and are very in­ter­ested in your planned fol­low-up ar­ti­cle. Brian and Sharon Jack­son
