Timeshare Directive, link

The study aims to evaluate the relevance, coherence, efficiency, effectiveness, utility, impact and added value of Directive 2008/122/EC, as well as the degree to which the objectives of the Directive have been achieved – i.e. to contribute to the proper functioning of the internal market and to achieve a high level of consumer protection in respect of certain aspects of the marketing, sale and resale of timeshares and long-term holiday products as well as exchange contracts. Finally, the study addresses specific additional consumer protection issues in the timeshare sector which are not covered by Directive 2008/122/EC, including newly emerging practices.

The study concludes by saying that the Directive has improved the situation for consumers but that its effects have been rather limited, partly because of its provisions being restricted to the pre-contract stage of timeshare transactions and partly because of new products being introduced that are designed to circumvent key provisions.
