Welcome to the clubOur members are from Europe:
Timeshare is a way to share using rights at a timeshare resort on a weekly basis to spend holidays. Even though the European legislation (timeshare directive) has improved the rights of timeshare owners in the process of buying timeshare products, the image of timeshare is showing a spiral downward, with sometimes even criminal indications. Therefore we believe that the future legislation should cover the whole live cycle of timeshare using rights from buying to cancellation or selling, including private resell, inheritance and beneficence.
ETOC is the abbreviation of 'European Timeshare Owners' Club'. The main purpose of the club are initiatives to protect and improve timeshare using rights by exchange of information between its members, cooperation with European Consumer Centers and other organizations or clubs dealing with timeshare, and finally making proposals to improve the European Union Timeshare Legislation (EU Timeshare Directive). The club acts internationally within Europe.
The club does not have any focus on specific timeshare resorts or holiday clubs and looks for a general solution of problems which can be put into the legislation to protect timeshare owners. The club does not want to be in a contrary position against companies running timeshare resorts and holiday clubs and wants to improve the partnership with them. It understands that these companies need to make profit to develop and maintain the resorts efficiently. But timeshare owners having paid for their using rights and annualy paying for the maintenance of the resort should have a fair return of their investment.
