Frequently Asked Questions
We understand that every penny counts but protecting timeshare owners and their clubs along with enhancing owner engagement and reviewing day to day operations is key to the long term future and security of your club or resort. EUROC provides many benefits and services for your committee representatives and resort management teams which will help them in many ways with their task of running the club/resort. We offer guidance, support and advice to the current EUROC member network who are forming strong relationships with each other and more and more clubs are joining as the organisation progresses.
The focus of EUROC will always be to look at every issue presented and how it could potentially impact timeshare owners. EUROC will gather evidence and viewpoints from the committee representatives and resort management teams from within the membership and present its findings and viewpoints to the necessary parties. When EUROC talks to regulators, industry associations, enforcement agencies, government and media, it will speak on behalf of thousands of timeshare owners and Home Owner Clubs across Europe. At times and when necessary, EUROC will work alongside the Resort Development Organisation (RDO) – the European timeshare trade organisation – as there will often be issues that arise whereby a stronger argument and voice will be heard if we join forces.
