So you cancelled before you even went?
Was this annual membership or one off fee?
Yes. But it is annual membership?
OK - then regardless it comes under Timeshare Regulations
This means you have 7 days to cancel.
You cancelled after 1 day
Therefore they can try and take you to Court but they are in breach of the Regulations
If a membership is for 12 months or more then it comes under Timeshare
So not worry, you cancelled within the cooling off period - they can not make you pay any more
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
They would tell you that of course. But the Timeshare rules apply.
If you can book for 22 months then clearly that is over 12 months
You just write and say it comes under Timeshare.
Say they can issue proceedings but you will defend it.
Call their bluff
I do yes
You point them to the Timeshare Regulations and say that it applies for things over 12 months. The fact they say it is 363 days is irrelevant. You can book for 22 months and this clearly shows that it is over 12 months and designed to try and circumvent the Regulations.
In any event they are breach of regulation 5 of the
The Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999
A contractual term which has not been individually negotiated shall be regarded as unfair if, contrary to the requirement of good faith, it causes a significant imbalance in the parties' rights and obligations arising under the contract, to the detriment of the consumer.
Does that help?
Sadly I can not be instructed, it is against site rules
Yes of course.
All the best
