Show 3 - May 2011
In our third show (May 2011) David Lilley speaks with British Travel Industry icon Bill Munro from Scotland's largest independent Travel Agent Barrhead Travel.
Bill Munro offers valuable insight into booking secure holidays for your family and how to protect your money. He also shares his thoughts on the timeshare product and expresses some interest in renting timeshare accommodation from Resort Committees & Management. If you are part of an Owner Committee and your resort needs extra rentals, this is a MUST Listen interview.
In our second feature, David also reviews the stunning Melfort Village Resort, situated on the West Coast of Scotland. The resort General Manager, Christine Roberts, provides a detailed summary of what Melfort Village has to offer to exchange guests, rental customers and prospective purchasers. Christine also answers some questions on the importance of maintenance fee collection for independent resort and in doing so explodes some of the perception myths that exist surrounding use of maintenance fees.

Show 1- March 2011
The first Timesharetalk radio show consists of interviews with Francis Taylor, Global Chief Executive and Co-Founder of popular exchange company Dial An Exchange, Andrew Horton, Operations Director of Resort Fiduciary Services Ltd and Geoff Chapman, Director of TATOC.
Any timeshare owner that has never heard of or used Dial An Exchange will find the interview with Francis interesting and enlightening. Dial An Exchange specialise in offering a simple product, strong customer service and competitive pricing. They have rapidly become very popular amongst timeshare owners across most continents.
Historically, the timeshare industry has not had access to insurance policies that can cover the annual maintenance fee in the event of sickness, death etc. That was until Resort Fiduciary Services introduced their annual maintenance fee insurance policy. Our interview with Andrew Horton reveals precisely how this insurance works and is worthy of the attention of any timeshare owner who may be at the time of life where health issues can arise.
Europe's largest timeshare consumer organisation (TATOC) should be praised for their continuing support of timeshare owners in Europe. We spoke to Director of TATOC (Mr Geoff Chapman) to find out more about the services that TATOC provide and the role they play within the industry.
