MANCHESTER, U.K. (January 24, 2014) — The Timeshare Association (Timeshare Owners and Committees), TATOC, is delighted to announce that HMC Funding has become a TATOC affiliated company.
HMC Funding is the leading introducer of point-of-sale finance to the leisure industry providing finance for shared ownership and fractional companies.
The company’s principal directors, Ron Howell and Barry Bailey, have over 30 years’ experience in the finance sector and both held senior positions with First National Finance Corporation Plc., Abbey National Plc. and G.E Home Lending.
Today, HMC’s primary focus for the timeshare industry is their Leisure Guard service, a travel insurance product that provides unique, comprehensive and value for money timeshare cover. Providing protection for owners up to the age of 79, Leisure Guard covers pre-existing medical conditions that are controlled by medication. Policies start from £12.54 for seven nights and £47.50 for an annual multi trip policy.
Speaking about the affiliation, Harry Taylor, TATOC’s executive chairman added: “HMC offers a range of services to the timeshare industry and their Leisure Guard insurance policy is going to be of great interest to our members – especially as they struggle to find travel insurance and this prevents them from enjoying their timeshare holiday. I am looking forward to working with them and adding them to our directory of affiliated businesses.”
As affiliates of TATOC, HMC will adhere to the TATOC Code of Conduct issued in August 2011 and the association’s code of ethics. All companies wishing to affiliate to TATOC 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.
Launched five years ago, TATOC affiliation was developed to provide a directory of suppliers of services such as marketing, exchange and re-sale to the timeshare industry in Europe.
TATOC member resorts looking to purchase such services for their own operations and to recommend to their members can work with these businesses safe in the knowledge they are regularly assessed to ensure the highest levels of customer service.
Today there are 30 affiliated companies offering high quality, customer-focused products and services to the timeshare industry. TATOC affiliation has given these companies the edge when competing with other non-affiliated businesses.
