Partners

The Timeshare Task Force is coordinated and managed by KwikChex – a world renowned investigation, verification and resolutions service provider.

Timeshare Business Check is a part of the Timeshare Task Force initiative, which is managed by KwikChex and operated in accordance with KwikChex verification processes and in conjunction with appropriate authorities and organisations. Within the Timeshare Task Force, we are partnering and collaborating with:

RDO –  Resort Development Organisation

RDO is the trade association for vacation ownership across Europe, RDO members represent the best in European vacation ownership and are committed to high service standards and integrity. They are bound by a code of conduct and an independent arbitration scheme, providing levels of protection beyond those required by law.

RDO is one of the instigators of the Timeshare Task Force and plays a pivotal part in funding and in driving initiatives designed to ensure consumers enjoy timeshare ownership and are protected to the highest degree possible.

European Consumer Centres Network (ECC)

The network of European Consumer Centres (ECC-Net) serves EU consumers shopping for goods and services on the European market, providing them with advice on their EU consumer rights and helping them with their disputes with traders in other EU countries.

The Timeshare Task Force is working with the ECC in intelligence gathering and sharing, legal opinion and in providing consumers with advice on specific threats.

TATOC – The Timeshare Association

TATOC is run “by timeshare owners for timeshare owners”, its mission is “to safeguard and enhance the timeshare holiday experience for existing and prospective users and to be the voice of owners.”

TATOC joined the Timeshare Task Force at the outset and is a major contributor – providing vital intelligence about consumer threats and invaluable input from the European timeshare owners community.

Direct from Timeshare Owners and Consumers

KwikChex is inviting timeshare owners and consumers with knowledge of or concerns about timeshare matters to provide direct input. A number have already taken this up. If you would like to contribute to the goals of the Timeshare Task Force and elements such as the Timeshare Business Check, please contact us.

Law Enforcement

When intelligence is gathered which indicates a strong likelihood of fraud or conspiracy to commit fraud, the Task Force will connect with the appropriate law enforcement agencies, such as (in the UK):

National Fraud Intelligence Bureau

Action Fraud

http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/

Law enforcement connections are being built and coordinated across Europe, with the Timeshare Task Force assisting with the identification of those involved in criminal activity. In many cases, such activities are carried out in several countries – and the Timeshare Task Force will assist in providing information which will help the coordination of information and actions across Europe.
