One word of caution
Cheap holiday deals that sound too good to be true, are often too good to be true. These holidays where a company pays for you to come out take a holiday and then expect to buy into their resort. While the price certainly might be right this method of taking a cheap holiday – or even a free one – is not for the faint hearted. Chances are you will be sat down for 5 hours plus in front of a commission only grizzled timeshare veteran and at the end of it you may well find yourelf handing over your credit card or signing a finance agreement – approach with caution.
These type of promotions nearly always lead to a Timeshare style product – although it might go by another name. We are not overstating the case when we say that involvement in these type of products lead to much heartbreak.
