Wyndham Timeshare Class Action Filed After Feeling of Deceit
Hours-long, high-pressure sales presentations loaded with “material misrepresentations” have gotten Wyndham Vacation Resorts, Inc. a number of consumers to purchase their timeshares, according to the proposed Whyndham Timeshare Class Action Lawsuit.
Wyndham has been accused of “consistently deceptive and misleading” sales practices to pressure consumers into signing contracts with the company. This is done by repeatedly lying during lengthy sales presentations “that take up to six or seven hours,” with the promise that consumers will save money by becoming timeshare owners and enjoy “a dizzying array of choices.”
The case is found here: Kirchner et al. v. Wyndham Vacation Resorts, Inc., Case No. 1:20-cv-00436-UNA, D.C. DE.

The Case: Wyndham Timeshare Class Action
The lawsuit claims that “the reality of Wyndham timeshare ownership is the opposite of what is represented in Wyndham sales presentations.. Owners are locked into timeshare ownership that has limited availability of destinations, often requires that bookings be made a year or more in advance, and results in Wyndham Owners paying more for vacations than they would on public travel websites.”
Wyndham sales representatives were also accused of being trained not to disclose “fundamental aspects” of the company’s timeshare program, which includes:
- Timeshare points worth $15,000 to $25,000 that is sold by Wyndham could be resold on eBay.com for as little as $1;
- Timeshare owners would often be forced to book vacations over a year in advance due to “persistent availability issues” at desired Wyndham resort locations;
- Annual maintenance fees that are “ever-increasing” would eventually cause the overall value of some owners’ timeshares to fall below zero; and
- Public websites such as TripAdvisor.com often have Wyndham properties readily available and offered at cheaper rates.
