Consumers have contacted KwikChex with concerns about Platinum Weeks/Easy Consulting SL.

Easy Consulting controls a number of cold calling fly buy companies, including Platinum Weeks, offering discounted holiday accommodation at luxury resorts.

Consumers accepting these deals are required to attend meetings to discuss their future holiday packages. Once consumers are at the meetings, they are given a hard sales pitch and pressurised into signing up to unwanted holidays and club memberships.


Platinum Weeks

Platinum Weeks is the latest in a long list of companies managed by Easy Consulting SL. Following their usual poor practice, they have been cold calling timeshare owners with offers of up to 4 weeks of bonus accommodation, which for a fee, can be banked for use in future years – this is a scam and timeshare owners should avoid paying any monies.

Their website lists a London business address (a well-known virtual office) but fails to disclose any British business ownership details. The Easy Consulting company details can be found in the Terms and Conditions section of the website, they are not visible on the main page.

Platinum Weeks are particularly persistent cold callers. Consumers are advised to ask how the business obtained personal data and what data they hold? If not satisfied, with answers received, reports can be made to the relevant data protection authorities. Cold callers frequently reference a central timeshare owners directory as their source of information – this directory doesn’t exist.

Actions by Authorities

2 September 2015 – The UK Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has informally resolved a complaint submitted by KwikChex regarding Exclusive Weeks http://exclusiveweeks.co.uk/.

The countdown clock has since been removed.


2 September 2015 – The UK Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has informally resolved a complaint submitted by KwikChex regarding Direct Resorts International http://directresortsinternational.co.uk/.

The complaint challenged whether testimonials on the www.directresortsinternational.co.uk website were genuine because the same testimonials were also displayed on another website www.exclusiveweeks.co.uk.

The testimonials have since been removed.


6 January 2016 – The UK Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has upheld a complaint submitted by KwikChex regarding Easy Consulting SL t/a www.directresortsinternational.co.uk.

The investigation by KwikChex challenged that the ad (“All our luxury resorts are from £99 per person … 5 star Luxury Accommodation at RCI … Affiliated Resorts”) was misleading, because it omitted what they believed was a significant condition that the prices of the holidays were dependent on consumers attending a timeshare sales presentation, and that failure to attend would mean incurring the full cost of the holiday accommodation; and that the claim “at RCI … Affiliated Resorts” was misleading, because they understood that the advertiser had no connection with Resort Condominiums International (RCI).

The ASA upheld the complaint stating that the ad must not appear again in its current form.

The ASA upheld the complaint stating that the ad must not appear again in its current form.
