Timeshare Selling Tactics

Our Comments: It's good to see the hard sell tactics being reigned in a bit. Kudos to Belize for making it so timeshare salespeople can't pester people while they're trying to enjoy their vacation!


Several reports have reached the Belize Tourism Board (BTB) office regarding Time Share Operators (TSO) on Ambergris Caye. Complaints were of tourists getting beleaguered by TSO's when they were enjoying their relaxing vacation on La Isla Bonita.・

On Thursday, December 8th, 2005, representatives of the various TSO's met with Lloyd Enriquez, Registrar of Hotels and Tourist Accommodation, police officer and members of the San Pedro Town Council to come to an amicable resolution. During this important meeting, the Off-Premises Contact (OFC) was thoroughly discussed and the following were the conclusions reached:

All TSO were asked to cease and desist from soliciting time share sales in public areas, which means no soliciting on the streets or beaches, effective immediately.

The second resolution reached was that all TSO's need to apply for a trade license for their respective time share booths at the San Pedro Town Council. These booths will be confined to private properties or buildings and no licenses will be granted for booths residing in public areas. The San Pedro Town Council will embark on this feat to ensure that all unlicensed booths be removed from the streets of San Pedro Town and that the proper procedures regarding trade licenses are followed.
