Vacation Ownership Consultants Reviews
Overall, Vacation Ownership Consultants reviews are positive. They are rated on all platforms, which is a good sign that they are reputable. Our team always recommends experienced exit companies that have a strong positive presence on multiple platforms.
As our team reviewed the Vacation Ownership Consultant’s website, we saw a few things that stood out to us. What stood out first to our team is their free consultation form. The company offers a free consultation for interested owners looking to exit their timeshare. They also mention a 100% success rate if they accept your case.
Our team admires this from VOC because it demonstrates how selective they are with the cases they decide to take on. A company that advertises a 100% success rate and tries to take on every case that comes their way is most likely a scam. You should avoid exit companies who are greedy and try to charge you up-front without knowing if they’re even qualified to handle your case.
Vacation Ownership Consultants also linked a video to their homepage by the free consultation form. As the video transitions, Brian mentions how timeshares are a life-long burden and how some options (such as selling or renting) aren’t always the best choice. Brian does a great job describing how draining increasing maintenance fees can be. In some cases can be passed down to future generations if nothing is done. Our team agrees with this statement. If nothing is done, a lifetime of increasing maintenance fees is an absolute nightmare.
Another character who’s brought in, Barbara, points out VOC’s credentials on various platforms and provides a little insight into their cancellation process. Below this video is the various review websites Barbara mentioned such as Angie’s List, Yelp, Trustpilot, and the Better Business Bureau (BBB). We admire an exit company that has such positive feedback on all platforms because it demonstrates evidence that the company really is who they say they are.
In this video, VOC Vacation Ownership Consultants also mentions how they use an “attorney-based” process to help you get out of your timeshare. In other words, this means the company uses attorneys in its cancellation process. Attorneys can force timeshare developers into canceling your contract. Having a timeshare attorney on your side is not only a +1 for adding an extra layer of protection, but their reassurance can truly give you a peace of mind.
A timeshare cancellation process can be very nerve-racking. You’ve just been scammed out of thousands of dollars with the resort. Now you have to pay more of your hard-earned money to exit this thing? The best option you can take to cancel your timeshare contract is by doing so legally with the right team on board.
Vacation Ownership Consultants explain their process at the bottom of the homepage in 6 steps. Steps 1 and 2 consist of the company trying to “exhausting your available options” before discussing billing information or involving an attorney, such as looking for a rescission period in your contract. Steps 3 and 4 determine if you qualify for their services and quoting you on a price. Our team always mentions that you should try negotiating the price for a better deal with any exit company. It doesn’t hurt to try and can only benefit you!
Steps 5 and 6 consist of enrolling you into their ‘VOC Service’ with their legal team reaching out to you. The company will then keep you updated with their ‘online portal’ and inform you when they’ve officially helped you out of your timeshare contract.
Another interesting addition to the company’s website is VOC’s maintenance fee calculator. With so many special assessment fees, annual maintenance fees, and let’s not forget interest rates; well, it’s no wonder so many owners are confused about how much they’re paying the resorts. Vacation Ownership Consultants does a great job by adding a simple, instant result fee calculator to their website that anyone could use. Once you enter your billing information, the calculator gives you a year-by-year breakdown of your costs over 20 years. Any company that is willing to go the extra mile to help owners assess their current situation is a positive sign.
Overall, VOC Vacation Ownership Consultants have a similar process to their competitors. Our team did not see anything out of the ordinary with how they operate. We have not mentioned yet how the company has a review page filled with video testimonials of their past clients describing their experiences with the company. Our team prioritizes video testimonials because it shows the authenticity versus written reviews, which anyone could draft up.
Our team did want to point out that Vacation Ownership Consultants does not offer an escrow payment option or advertise a 100% money-back guarantee. Unfortunately, there are numerous scams in the timeshare industry. The most common scams come from timeshare exit companies who promise they can help you get rid of your timeshare, try to collect up-front fees, but have no evidence to back up their claims. Do your due diligence and review each timeshare exit company before working with them! Or reach out to our team by initiating a live chat or filling out our free consultation form so we can help you determine if an exit company is reputable.
