Point to Point to Westcoast Timeshare to Crelogix

My husband and I joined Point to Point Timeshare in Vancouver BC, which changed to Westcoast Timeshare. We were asked if we owned a home to begin with we said no, but we did have a motor home (jokingly). The guy said good enough and signed us up on that. We were financed by Travelers acceptance which changed to Crelogix when they changed to Westcoast.

Since then they merged with Vacation Internationale and went Bankrupt, we thought our payments were then going to Vacation Internationale, but they weren’t. I canceled the payments, and they changed the total to a different total to get the money out of my bank 4 times I phoned them to ask if we could make smaller payments to them until we can afford to pay in full, they said No.

Crelogix TimeshareWhen we first signed they asked for a list of people we knew who might like a timeshare, and now they are harrasing the people on that list and talking about us not paying our bills, my husband is worried that they are going to start calling his work.

Difficulty Exchanging Timeshare

Well, I’ve had RCI for 7 years. Don’t ask why. I couldn’t give you an answer. I have only been able to trade twice. Both times the trades were more business related than pleasure and financially, it made sense.

I have NEVER been able to trade to a property when I want or where I want. I’ve tried everything. Everything that I’ve been told ( by sales people ) are outright lies.

Unless you want to pay big bucks for prime locations and prime weeks, don’t believe any of the sales pitches from those trying to sell you a time share. ( and if you really want to pay up, you’d be better served just buying a condo somewhere ) This INCLUDES the Disney Vacation Club. Logic would have it that EVERYBODY wants to go to Disney and trading is, and I quote “never a problem”. Until it is.

Grandview Timeshare Presentation Survival Guide

A visitor shares their experience attending the Grandview at Las Vegas timeshare presentation, and has the following tips and tricks to offer those attending for the free gifts:

Grandview Las Vegas Timeshare PresentationStory is the same as everyone else. Huge scripted scam. Worthless property, over priced vacation packages and the list of lies is extremely amazing. You are told to look over at the new construction going on. And told how Grandview is the hottest timeshare place available. How the prices keep increases each year and if you dont buy now you wont reap the benefits of the hot market. After research the prices go form $50,000 all the way down to $5000 if you keep saying NO. You also will receive a free cruise for 2 but this is also another scam. The cruise is worthless also.

They confuse you and try and get you brainwashed during the whole presentation. I would not be surprised if there are some subliminal tactics or hypnosis being used. I think the power of suggestion and the constant lies help trick the weak minded into making a bad decision. Thank God above my wife and I are extremely intelligent and could see it was a scam within a few minutes of the presentation.

It was easy for us to say NO. And I offered the sales man a chance to wrap things up because he was past his 3 hour limit and I had nothing more to say and did not want to hear his bullshit anymore. He than told me I would be stuck at the Grandview for another 2 hours but if I wanted to leave sign up for the lowest package and he could get me a limo back to the hotel within 20 minutes.
