Timeshare Freedom Group Review

Timeshare Freedom Group is another timeshare cancellation company that may be able to help relieve you of your timeshare ownership. The company has locations all over the United States with several offices in Southern California.

Timeshare Freedom Group claims it has attorneys and advisers that can help you legally and permanently get rid of your timeshare. According to the company’s website, they’ve helped more than 9,500 clients get rid of their timeshare. The domain timesharefreedomgroup.com was registered in November of 2017. This is a bit odd for a company that has claimed to have helped more than 9,500 clients get rid of their timeshare, but perhaps they previously operated under a different domain name?

Timeshare Freedom Group advertises an easy and painless 4-step timeshare exit process. The process doesn’t include much detail, but in general you’re assigned an account manager, your paperwork is processed, and then your timeshare is cancelled. According to the company’s “reviews” page, Timeshare Freedom Group does not take on clients it knows it cannot help. This is a good sign because timeshare exit companies that take on every client regardless of their situation often end up not being able to cancel every timeshare which results in refunds and unhappy customers.

Their FAQ page states the entire process can take 9 to 12 months, but a response from Timeshare Freedom Group on Trustpilot states that the process can take 9 to 18 months. Perhaps the company’s website is  out of date?

This same response from Timeshare Freedom Group on Trustpilot states, “Occidental generally bars all purchased on the secondary market. So a change of ownership is extremely unlikely.” Occidental is a timeshare, so it is always possible to sell it on the resale market. A timeshare company can not “bar” an owner from selling their timeshare. A timeshare company can exercise something called a right of first refusal and take the timeshare back if the owner tries to sell it too cheaply, but a timeshare company cannot “bar” a sale.

It is unclear if this company charges an up-front fee because this is not mentioned anywhere on the website. The company does mention a 100% money-back guarantee though, which usually means there is an up-front fee. On the FAQ page the company states that if your timeshare has not been cancelled after 24 months, you will receive your money back. So there is a guarantee, but you have two wait 2 years to get your money back. A lot can happen in 2 years. For example, the company could get sued by a resort developer and go out of business. If the company goes out of business, there’s a good chance you won’t be getting your money back.

This is why we like to recommend timeshare exit companies that offer an escrow payment option. When you pay with an escrow account, the timeshare exit company does not get paid in full from the escrow account until after your timeshare has been cancelled.

Timeshare Freedom Group Cost

Like almost all timeshare exit companies in existence, Timeshare Freedom Group does not display its prices online. Timeshare cancellation is a customized service, so this is to be expected. The company offers two ways to get a quote. You can call in for a free 20-minute consultation and get a quote that way or you may submit an online form on their website without speaking to anyone. If you submit an online form, the Timeshare Freedom Group cost will be sent via email.

Timeshare Freedom Group Reviews

When reviewing the company’s website there is a page that shows several celebrity endorsers that recommend Timeshare Freedom Group’s services. It is unclear if Timeshare Freedom Group paid for these endorsements, but it is unlikely that radio personalities would advertise a company without being paid for air time on their show. Paying for endorsements isn’t necessarily a bad thing, just something to keep in mind.

Like most timeshare exit companies, Timeshare Freedom Group shows several positive testimonials on its website. One thing that sets them apart is their positive reviews on Trustpilot and Yelp. Reviews on Trustpilot are harder to fake than testimonials added on the company’s website itself.

At the end of 2019 and early 2020, it looks like Timeshare Freedom Group received some negative reviews on Yelp. All businesses get negative reviews from time to time. It’s really only a concern when the company does not respond to the negative reviews. In this case, it looks like Timeshare Freedom Group has not responded yet, but the company has responded to other reviews so it is likely they simply have not seen these negative reviews yet.

Oddly, we’re unable to find a BBB page for Timeshare Freedom Group. The address on the company’s contact page is the following:

23046 Avenida De La Carlota Suite 600
Laguna Hills, CA 92653

A search for this address brings up a shared office space. There are several business with a BBB profile with this address, but none are related to timeshare.

Different Company Names?

It is unclear if Timeshare Freedom Group is the same company as Timeshare Freedom LLC. Timeshare Freedom LLC is operating under a few different names and websites including:

• Timeshare-answers.com
• TimeshareFreedomGroup.com
• Integrity Marketing Solutions
• Legaltimesharecancellation.com
• cancelatimeshare.co
• cancelatimeshare.com
• cancel-timeshares.com
• timeshare-help.com
• timesharequestions.com
• timesharecancellation.org

These companies are all connected by the following address:

7350 Futures Drive, Suite 17, Orlando,
Florida 32819

We aren’t sure why Timeshare Freedom LLC has chosen to register so many different domain names and operate under so many different company names. This isn’t something most companies choose to do. This may be a different company entirely though.

Summary

Overall, we still recommend working with timeshare exit companies that offer an escrow payment option, so you are 100% protected from all possible scams. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.
