Since the collapse of TATOC, (The Timeshare Association) in 2017, timeshare owners have had no formal representation on issues that impact them and little protection against the activities of fraudulent companies.
By autumn 2018, it had become absolutely critical that journalists, government bodies, consumer associations and policy makers should have a trusted owners’ representative body to approach.
In February 2019, at a meeting of timeshare owners committees from resorts and home owner clubs around Europe, delegates unanimously supported the proposal to establish a powerful and representative body for timeshare owners and EUROC was launched on 1st March, 2019.
During the set-up phase EUROC has been supported and funded by the European trade association, Resort Development Organisation, (RDO) and the Resort Owners’ Coalition in the USA, ARDA-ROC. From 2020/2021 the goal is for EUROC to become financially self-sufficient as more resorts and home owner clubs take up membership.
