Secret Filming Shows How Difficult it can be to Terminate a Timeshare.

Apr 23, 2017

A BBC investigation in Scotland has uncovered evidence of the problems people face when  trying to get out of their timeshare contracts.

Timeshares are owned by about 600,000 people in the UK but some have had problems trying to relinquish them.

Retired couple Alex and Honore Byrne, from Alva in Clackmannanshire, bought theirs from a company now owned by Macdonald Resorts many years ago when their children were young.

But ill health now means neither is able to find affordable travel insurance, and travelling itself is also difficult. The couple have been trying to relinquish their timeshare contracts for two years.
