Suffer in silence no longer – Timeshare owners take action against void contracts and win

2016 has seen many timeshare owners finally rid themselves of illegal timeshare contracts following a flurry of successful wins on the Canary Island of Gran Canaria and mainland Spain.

These cases have been won after contracts containing illegal floating weeks or exceeding 50 years’ duration were declared null and void by Spanish jurisdiction. Not only are European timeshare owners finally being freed from corrupt contracts, many have received hefty compensation with some awarded payouts of up to EUR 130,000.

After years of suffering in silence, unhappy timeshare owners have seen the light at the end of the tunnel and are speaking up, taking action and winning.
