Shut down: the company that took upfront fees from people desperate escape timeshare traps

‘International Timeshare Refund Action liquidated after ignoring court judgment’

‘When ITRA ignored the judgment they took the case to the High Court to have it shut down, assisted by Kwikchex, an online business verification scheme that runs the timeshare industry-funded Timeshare Task Force .

“ITRA has a long record of making empty promises and charging huge fees, when in reality there were free or much lower cost options to exit timeshares,” said founder Chris Emmins.

“That’s why we have provided free help, assisting consumers to take successful legal action. We are continuing to assist consumers that have been affected by ITRA and other similar businesses.”

Trapped timeshare owners who paid thousands to get out of their contracts are being ‘palmed off’

‘Couple were desperate to sell their timeshare when the annual fees reached £1,500 so paid International Timeshare Refund Action Limited, or ITRA, to help them’

So far ITRA have done very little, getting me to do most of their work,” Laura says.

“After four years I am now informed that I still own the week in Scotland and am therefore liable for maintenance arrears of £742,” said Anthony.

“We paid ITRA over £5,000, this was over two years ago,” says Julie.
