Timeshare during the Covid-19 pandemic as Club La Costa announces the closure of its sales companies
2020 has been an incredibly difficult year for the tourism industry, with accommodation providers having to close for lengthy periods of time during the pandemic and little or no sales income being generated over the course of the year.
Given the continued uncertainties, RDO affiliate Club La Costa announced to its members last month that it had decided to discontinue new timeshare sales in the UK and Spain, and has since closed those particular marketing & sales companies.
This decision does not affect any CLC World resorts or their many Real Estate projects, which continue to operate normally for CLC members – within the current Covid-19 rules and regulations. Like all RDO members, Club La Costa remains committed to continuing to deliver high quality holidays to its owners and guests, and has recently added two new UK locations for its members to use as “Staycation” resorts in 2020 and 2021, whilst international travel restrictions impede many from travelling further afield.
It should be noted that since the start of the pandemic there has been a significant increase in the number of unsolicited calls to timeshare owners by fraudulent timeshare ‘exit’ companies claiming they can extract people from their timeshare contracts or take legal action on their behalf. Club La Costa members can find out how to detect and avoid fraud by visiting www.timeshareexitconcerns.co.uk, a site that has been created by KwikChex, which manages the Trading Standards approved Timeshare Task Force. If people have queries about their ownership, they should contact Club La Costa customer services on 0800 031 9151 or the RDO consumer services department on firstname.lastname@example.org
