Timeshare

90 views

Meglena Kuneva, Member of the EC in charge of Consumer Protection, presents the modified Timeshare Directive at a press conference held in Brussels on 07/06/2007. The original directive was published over 10 years ago (in 1994) and consumers continue to encounter problems. Since the adoption of the Directive, new products and contracts have been developed which are not covered by this legislation. These new products include those which can be called "timeshare-like products" as well as the so-called "travel discount clubs". The European Commission has decided to revise the directive to include regulations which will cover these new products and therefore improve consumer protection. The main countries concerned are the United Kingdom, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Germany, France, …. In order to illustrate this subject, the European Commission's audiovisual service is preparing a infoclip on timesharing which will include footage filmed in Santander (Spain) and in the Canary Islands (Spain).
