The Timeshare Time Bomb

Investigating the pitfalls faced by people who bought timeshares as they become too old or unwell to use them, leaving them facing problems in getting out of their contracts.

They promised a lifetime of holidays without hassle, and the chance to own your own bit of the sun forever. And Britain's sunseekers snapped them up. More than six hundred thousand of us have bought timeshares. It's a hugely successful industry. But an increasing number of owners are getting too old or unwell to use them, and are facing huge problems in getting out of their contracts.
BBC Scotland Investigates: The Timeshare Time Bomb looks at the problems - and the pitfalls - they face.
