Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Travel around the World Inc as a third party broker of timeshare resales for Grupo Mayan Resorts, has defrauded my 80 year old mother.  She bought a timeshare unit from Grupo Mayan in Mexico, and was told her two timeshare weeks in Florida would be traded in and purchased from Travel around the World, and the purchase price was to be credited against the sale of the Grupo Mayan timeshare.  The purchase price was credited, but the actual purchase and transfer of the florida timeshares was never completed by Travel around the World.  They have dragged their feet on this, have kept telling my mother more documentation is required, cashed her resort transfer fees that she paid them, and still nothing has changed.  When they answer the phone, they tell her that they are walking over to "accounting" as we speak to get the transaction completed...but nothing happens.

Mayan Palace Timeshare Scam

AUTHOR: janie78j - ()

You are not the only one on this. There have been many complaints against TATW Incorporated, especially because the company, along with Mayan Palace timeshare resorts and Playa Grande/Grand Solmar, is over promise and under-deliver. That means the make lots of promises, but none of them are satisfactorily accomplished. The most common complaint is that the sales representatives at the resort offer a trade-in to the potential buyers, being TATW Incorporated the intermediary company to sell their old timeshare, but most of them end up owning two timeshares, since their old timeshare was never sold.  Another complaint is that the transfer fees are very high, and they start from $1800. After giving the first payment, more fees will be requested to the original owners, but the timeshare transfer will never be consummate. Costumer service is lousy, and people never receive answers from the company, only excuses. Don't give up and fight to get your money back, don't let them get away with it.

No response from Donald Tolis at Travel Around the World

AUTHOR: Markm - (United States of America)

My complaint against Travel Around the World is not a feeble attempt by a competitor to slight Travel Around the Worlds image.  My mother and I are legitimate owners of Grupo Mayan timeshares that were promised by Travel Around the World that our 2 weeks of florida timeshares would be purchased by Travel Around the World.  We have contacted Mr. Don Tolis per the previous rebuttal to no avail.  The phone operators at Travel Around the World stated they were having "phone network problems and unable to reach Don Tolis, but they would have him call us back.  This has not happened.  My email is (((Redacted))), my name is Mark and my mothers name is Juanita M..and her email is (((Redacted))).  Our next step is to take this up with the Florida Attorney General under the legal statute of predatory practices against the elderly if we cannot get this resolved in the near future.
