MANCHESTER, U.K. (Jan. 31, 2013) — The Timeshare Association (Timeshare Owners and Committees), TATOC, is delighted to announce that re-sale organisation The Timeshare Shop has become a TATOC silver affiliate.
The Timeshare Shop is a family run, U.K. based company specialising in the re-sale of timeshare holiday ownership weeks and points. With offices in Manchester, Spain and the Canary Islands and agents in the U.S., the company’s management team has over 25 years’ experience within the industry.
As the business is not linked to any specific timeshare developer it is able to offer independent, unbiased advice and information to prospective purchasers or sellers.
The services offered by The Timeshare Shop include purchasing, renting, selling and part exchanging timeshare weeks and points (RCI, Club La Costa and Diamond Resorts International) and providing advice and support through the re-sale process.
Speaking about the new affiliation Harry Taylor, executive chairman of TATOC, said: “The Timeshare Shop has been operating from its Manchester head office for ten years now so we are delighted that such an established company has decided to affiliate with TATOC. We want to ensure timeshare owners have a choice of re-sale organisations who all follow the TATOC code of conduct.”
As silver affiliates of TATOC, The Timeshare Shop will adhere to the TATOC code of conduct issued in August 2011 and the re-sale code of practice. All companies wishing to affiliate to the Timeshare Association are thoroughly vetted beforehand and continually monitored. Further details of the code of conduct can be found on the Association’s website (www.TATOC.co.uk).
The Timeshare Association (Timeshare Owners and Committees), known as TATOC, was formed in 1989 and is the only elected consumer association representing the interests of timeshare owners in Europe. There are 90 member resorts located across Europe giving TATOC access to over 450,000 timeshare-owning families. Individual members and professional business affiliates from the timeshare industry community also support the Association.
The mission of TATOC is to safeguard and enhance the timeshare holiday experience for existing and prospective users and to be the voice of owners. In recent years, TATOC has focused not only on increasing the membership base but also raising the profile of the Association, establishing TATOC as the recognized voice of the timeshare consumer and an informed point of contact. The Association is now a regular contributor to the consumer press and works closely with the UK’s Trading Standards offices, the police and other authorities.
