Timeshares can be a really great way to take vacations around the world. People love using them to get away for weekends or even weeks at a time. The timeshare offers travel incentives to sit through a presentation. The presentation is where you will learn about the timeshare and how it can benefit you. While sitting through one of these presentations may seem like a daunting task, there are some tried and tested methods to help you get out as quickly as possible.
The first step is to check in. This can be done online or at the resort office. To check-in simply tell them your name and how many people you are with. Ask them if there is a better time for them to present to you. Sometimes, timeshares will offer incentives for staying after the presentation like free champagne or discounted rates for other activities. This is the best way to get out of a timeshare presentation. By offering yourself time limits, you can ensure there will be no need for you to attend a presentation.
The next step would be to tell them that your in-laws or significant other doesn’t feel well and that they will join you in just a little bit. This works well because at that point, you are already in an office or waiting room while they check in. After everyone has arrived, tell them your significant other doesn’t feel up to attending the presentation and would like to sit it out.
If you do not want to lie about someone’s absence, simply say you need to check out a few things before making a decision.
The last step is to simply walk away from the presentation. It’s as easy as that! This will prevent you from having to sit through a presentation for something you do not want or cannot afford.
If you are unfortunate enough to have been kidnapped by timeshare solicitors, they can be quite persistent. They will give you their card and tell you to check it out online. Take the card but do not let them know that you plan on contacting them.
Do not allow yourself to become discouraged by the aggressive sales pitch presented during a timeshare presentation. With these tips and tricks, you will be able to escape before they even ask for your credit card information.
