Writing About Travel

Owning a part of your holiday home is fine, if you like going to the same place every year, but there's been a lot of bad publicity with timeshares; caused by the over persuasive and pestering tactics of some timeshare touts trying to pay for a life in the sun, or on the slopes, based on the commissions they make off 'the punters'.

For those who like the comforts of home when they go on holiday, and feel that hotels don't quite offer them that, there are a number of other options: homeswaps, timeshares and destination clubs.

Timeshare Vacation Rentals

If you don't know about timeshares you may benefit from this information.

Making Your Travels a Little Easier

It is necessary to understand that timeshares are not for everyone. Some people love them. For others, vacation property ownership just does not fit with their lifestyle. Whatever the case, it is always worth doing a little research to see if you can save a little time and/or money.

Saving Time and Energy

There are a number of ways that owning your very own vacation property can be advantageous. First, many people enjoy the freedom of having guaranteed holiday time every year. Planning a getaway can be a very stressful experience, which is contradictory to the entire purpose of vacationing.

Owning a timeshare means that there is no planning involved. You have a designated time and your own property at whichever resort you have chosen. A unique opportunity available with timeshare is the ability to own multiple weeks annually. If your life is conducive to more than one vacation per year, or vacations longer than one week, you will be pleased with this possibility. There are never vacancy issues and you will never have to settle with accommodations that don't fit your expectations.

Saving Money

Accumulating hotel bills can get pricey, especially if you are trying to match the luxury available at timeshare resorts. In other words, if you buy timeshare you can save money and procure plush lodging for a lifetime. So why doesn't everybody do this? Buying an actual timeshare can be expensive if you are not aware of all your options - and most people aren't.

Purchasing timeshare directly from the resort is usually very expensive. There is another option, however. Purchasing from an existing owner can save you thousands and they are available at all the same resorts as conventional vacation property. When owners sell timeshare, vacationers have an opportunity to save between 30 and 70% on great property.

So why doesn't everybody do this? A couple of reasons: Most people don't know about timeshare resales and also because of scams. Scammers have tainted the timeshare industry and that drives people away, but there are reliable companies out there that will help you.

Timeshare Resales the Safe Way

Finding a reliable company is not a difficult task. In fact, it is much easier to find a reliable one than a scam. That does not mean you shouldn't be careful though.

Legitimate companies will have a good record with the Better Business Bureau and third party statistics illustrating how good they are at their job.

Let's say I want to sell my timeshare, I will obviously find the company that is going to sell my property the quickest but I want to also get the most for my property.

As a buyer, if you find the best company out there, you should also find the best property on the market.
