Customer Question

We arrived in Hong Kong in the evening & the next morning at the ferry terminal was convinced to have a look at a holiday package & if we did would receive a prize. We went to the briefing & the holiday club was explained to us, at the time I said we were not interested & would not sign any contract without sleeping on it. The agent then said they had a special deal for people like us & that was for 3 instead of 15 years & for just A$ five thousand. By this stage I was tired & suffering from jet lag & both my wife & myself just wanted to go to the hotel to sleep. We had also just wasted a day of our short stop over in Hong Kong. The upshot is that we signed the contact which has a no out clause and a clause that states we were not put under any pressure to sign. In hind sight this is not true as we were under pressure from the moment we met the agent. We are retired & not really in a position to use a club such as this. Is there anyway we can get out of the contract?

How did you pay?


Are you U.S. citizens?


Is the club affiliated with any U.S. company?


Were you served alcohol during any part of the presentation or negotiation?


Were you placed in a position of believing that you were not free to leave unless you signed?
