For the past years, the timeshare industry became well-known for its association with the hefty fees and scams involved in dealing with such properties. In addition, timeshare owners were often visible with their complaints and their efforts to get out from their timeshares. However, timeshare consumers can’t just stop guessing what lies ahead for them this year. But one thing is already certain. For those heading off to timeshare resorts this year, they would expect a tighter security checks at airports.
As revealed by Prime Minister Gordon Brown of UK, the use of full-body scanners will be brought in gradually. As he also told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, the equipment is already on order following the failed bomb plot at Christmas. Thus, they will do everything in their power to tighten up the security, he added.
On the other hand, BAA, which owns several airports in the UK, added that the scanners will be introduced as soon as practical. According to their spokesman, it is their view that a combination of technology, intelligence and passenger profiling will help build a more robust defense against the unpredictable and changing nature of the terrorist threat to aviation.
This year, the timeshare owners might still expect the same fees and complaints with their units. We might also expect several owners who want to get rid of their timeshares while some even hire a timeshare transfer company such as the Transfer Smart. On the positive side, a tighter security checks at airports which will be imposed this year will result to a safer travel which everyone can benefit.
