Omni Ellis is a timeshare exit and transfer company that is based out of San Francisco, California. The company has been in business since 2015 and has a professional website. Omni Ellis can help you eliminate your timeshare mortgage and maintenance fees. As our team at MyTER carefully reviewed the company, a few things stood out to us.
The first thing that stood out is the statement Omni Ellis makes, “if the company fails to remove you out of the contract, you will not have to pay them a fee”. This statement translates to being a 100% money-back guarantee. The company also offers a simple exit process, in which they state:
“We take care of each step during your timeshare transfer, so you don’t have to. After the order for your timeshare closing is placed, we ask that you complete a few simple forms allowing us to work with the resort and county agencies to facilitate the transfer of title to or from your name”.
If you’re looking to work with Omni Ellis, there are a few things that each timeshare owner should be aware of before working with any timeshare exit company. Initiate a Live Chat or fill out the form on the right to find out how you can protect yourself from potential timeshare exit scams.
Omni Ellis Reviews
Update February 2021: As of February 2021, many clients have claimed the company has not helped them remove their timeshares and have filed complaints with the Better Business Bureau. We suggest you do your own due diligence on Omni Ellis. Our team does NOT recommend Omni Ellis until they help all the owners they are working with.
Another thing that stood out to our team is the ‘FAQ’ page. The frequently asked questions page has common questions and answers that timeshare owners may have. Omni Ellis does state they accept resorts in United States, Mexico, Europe, and the Caribbean, which is a +1 from our team. Many timeshare exit companies only deal with resorts in the United States, putting some timeshare owners in a tough position.
In America, 1 out of 8 households currently own a timeshare. The timeshare industry is growing at a rapid pace, and many timeshare owners have fallen victim to exit scams. We advise all timeshare owners to carefully assess the credentials of each timeshare exit company or have our team find the best timeshare exit company for your situation. Fill out the form on the right or initiate a Live Chat to determine if Omni Ellis is the right timeshare exit company for your timeshare situation.
On various platforms, many clients have stated that after being quoted a fee by Omni Ellis, they had a few days to make a decision or the quoted price does not stand. Many exit companies want you to sign up for their services immediately and this is something our team disagrees with. When you first purchase a timeshare, you were pressured, why would you want to pay thousands up-front and feel the same pressure? We’ll let you decide if this is a good sales tactic by the company.
Read more about Omni Ellis cost and fees below. Once again, our team only recommends working with an exit company that offers an escrow option. Using escrow can help protect you from timeshare scams and from losing thousands of dollars!
Omni Ellis does not offer a no up-front payment escrow option as we would have liked, but the company does offer a 100% money-back guarantee. As our team spoke directly with Omni Ellis, a representative of their company stated they could take on every timeshare and passed me a contract over without assessing our case. This is something we do not approve of because how is the company so positive they will cancel a specific timeshare contract? We advise you to be careful of companies that rush in and want your money.
Another interesting statement our team read on the website was Omni Ellis would help timeshare owners get rid of:
- Timeshare Mortgage
- Special Assessment Fees
- Annual Maintenance Fees
As you may be aware of the resale market for timeshares, most timeshares are listed for $1 on websites such as craiglist.com or ebay.com. There is no value for timeshares anymore, and it’s due to the low pricing of hotels and different travel outlets. Omni Ellis does not use attorneys, and as we mentioned before, the legitimate way to get out of a timeshare contract is by using an attorney. We would advise anyone to be careful if a timeshare exit company is doing business without an attorney, they usually are not legitimate.
The average time to transfer the timeshare according to a specialist at Omni Ellis is roughly around 3-12 month period. It depends on your timeshare contract details and the developer of your contract. Omni Ellis does have few commercials over the internet and TV. There is nothing out of the ordinary here, but the commercial did state the company has helped over 15,000 timeshare owners get out of their contract, that is a +1 from our team. If a timeshare exit or transfer company has a high success rate, that is always a positive sign.
There was no clear explanation of the process Omni Ellis uses to help transfer or exit your timeshare, but the company does provide a free consultation. Omni Ellis makes an essential statement as shown below:.
Omni Ellis Cost & Fees
After our team spoke directly to an Omni Ellis representative, the contract that was sent to us was priced at $3000, after reading through the contract, the company states there can be additional costs depending on your timeshare developer. To give you an estimate, the service fee for Omni Ellis ranges from $3000-$6000 based on multiple reviews.
Omni Ellis has a decent price point compared to other timeshare exit companies. Paying a timeshare exit company can be beneficial in the long run. Timeshares typically have high-interest rates, and you would be paying a lot more if you stayed in your timeshare contract.
Omni Ellis Ratings
Omni Ellis has an F rating on the Better Business Bureau, and they are NOT a BBB accredited company. The company has negative customer reviews and ratings. Omni Ellis does not have Yelp or Trustpilot reviews.
Our Team at MyTER always recommends working with a company that has a strong positive presence in the timeshare exit industry. After carefully reviewing Omni Ellis, our team has decided to assess the company with a 3.0/5.0 MyTER Rating. The past reviews on Omni Ellis stood out to our team. There are also a few negative reviews. Reach out to our team to see if Omni Ellis is a good fit for you.
We would have liked it if the company had a Yelp or Trustpilot presence, but since the company primarily labels itself as a transfer company, the percentage of cancellation is not high. We do not want you to run the risk of losing out thousands of dollars, we recommend you reach out to our team or research the company in detail before signing a contract.
Due to the recent complaints towards Omni Ellis, we do not recommend owners to work with Omni Ellis until they have helped their owners. Many owners are claiming the is not answering calls and their timeshare cancellation is not resolved after paying thousands up-front!
Below is an image directly from the Better Business Bureau (BBB) highlighting a past clients experience with Omni Ellis:
After carefully assessing Omni Ellis, our team has concluded the company currently is not helping its clients. We edify companies that prioritize timeshare owners who are paying thousands of dollars to get out, and Omni Ellis is currently not doing that. Unfortunately, this industry is riddled with scams. There are quite a few timeshare exit companies you will not hear from for months unless you call them.
Contact our team so we can help you find and determine if a timeshare exit company is legitimate. We recommend working with timeshare exit companies that offer escrow, so you pay no up-front fees. Know your legal right so you can exit your timeshare contract legally. Read over our website and fill out the form on the right or contact us through Live Chat for a free informational consultation.

Do Not Use Them
I have been under contract now for over a year. They have a bait and switch way of always assigning you to different reps that are supposed to work with you. They make any form of communications very difficult. They just don’t know when they took me money the ‘pit bull’ that I can become. I will be filling a Civil Suit for Breach of Contract. I will easily win but then it’s a matter of getting the judgement paid.
Just save yourself the aggravation of getting conned – do not even think of using them.
I’m not sure why the BBB does not sue them or the CA Attorney General shut them down as they really are crooks.
Over 18 months w/nothing
Signed a contract & paid over $3000 in Jan, 2020. Have sent NUMEROUS copies of documents, etc., to Wyndham, at Omni’s request. Since they went to their “NEW” customer service option, have had NO contact, despite repeated e-mails, phone calls, etc. We’re probably going to contact an attorney.
maybe a scam
We signed a contract with Omni ellis in November 2019. At first there was good communication and it looked like they were honest and working for us. We complied with all the information they required. Now no one will answer the phone calls and messages left. Two of the phone numbers on their voicemail they say to call are not even working. It has been 6 months since I was able to talk to someone, an I have left numerous voice messages. I don’t know if they have gone out of business or they are a scam. All I know is that we paid them $4K and they signed a contract guaranteeing us they would get us out of the time share, but we can’t even contact them now
This is a terrible company if they even exit anymore. They don’t answer the phone. One star is too high a rating.
Omni Ellis took us for $10k
Omni Ellis has our money, and has had it for over a year and a half. Anytime we have an issue we’re shuffled to a new person. Now it’s been over six people. The last time they said they were going to have help us they misspelled our names on the documents. So we had to wait for a new set that never arrived. And then we speak to another person who says she’ll have the documents in my hand in 5 minutes. So we don’t shoot her down because it’s been a year and a half. They never showed up we finally contact her again and she sends us blank documents that we can just pull up and fill out. It’s very confusing because it’s multiplink documents.
Now we’ve tried calling email texting the general info on their web page you name it and we get no call backs nothing but they still have our money. And I have received a bill from our timeshare for almost $5,000 now.
What do we do?
PS the one star is for Omni.
