Holiday Clubs and other touristic contracts
Is my holiday-club membership covered by EU rules?
Holiday clubs are similar to timeshares but many have been designed to circumvent the older EU consumer rules on timeshare, which only used to cover contracts of at least 3 years. Therefore, holiday-club agreements are often for less than 3 years.
The new EU timeshare rules cover such 'timeshare-like' services, if the contract is for more than one year.
Contract cancellation: holiday clubs
If you have already signed up to a holiday club and want to cancel, check the terms of your contract carefully and request the cancellation immediately: according to the new rules there is a
14-day contract cancellation (cooling-off) period.
