Listen in to UKICC consumer adviser Laura Johnston on Radio 4.

In this half-hour programme about timeshare holiday ownership, Money Box Live explores some of the key issues surrounding tmeshares, which were once very popular in the 80s and 90s.

These days many timeshares are marketed more like holiday club memberships, so it can sometimes be difficult to tell the difference. Both products can seem to offer cheaper holidays but it's well worth knowing about the pitfalls before you sign up as it can be easy to fall into a financial trap. Contracts can sometimes be cleverly worded to get around the legislation so it's really important to know your rights!
