What Timeshare Owners Need to Know About the BBB


If you have a question or a concern about a company you have had dealings with, or are considering using, whether it’s a contractor for your home or a company that you are buying a timeshare from, check out what the Better Business Bureau has to say about them first.

The Better Business Bureau (BBB) issued a reminder this week to remind anyone who is a timeshare owner to be aware of brokers who call out of the blue, ask for a fee and say they have prospective buyers.  Many of these are scams and remember, you can always check out a company with your local BBB.

In addition, Steven Cole, president of the Council of Better Business Bureaus says consumers are encouraged to obtain the names, addresses and telephone numbers for the lodgings, airlines and cruise ships advertised in a vacation promotion.

“Armed with that information, you can check with the BBB or a recognized travel organization to find out whether the business has been the subject of customer complaints. BBBs offer reports on travel-related businesses in both the U.S. and Canada,” said Cole.

The BBB defines its mission as “ensuring that high standards for trust are set and maintained. We exist so consumers and businesses alike have an unbiased source to guide them on matters of trust. We provide educational information and expert advice that is free of charge and easily accessible. “
