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

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.
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 resale 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.
