More and more families who love to travel are finding timeshare’s as a viable investment option for their annual holiday vacation spending. Here are some reasons why:
1. BE ABLE TO EXPLORE THE WORLD YEAR IN, YEAR OUT
Its acceptance worldwide lies largely in the people’s need for quality holiday vacation that allows them to explore different places around the world with loads of benefits. Generally, a timeshare accommodation is more than just a hotel room. It has enough space for a family and more friends with its homey and self-catering facilities like kitchen, living, dining rooms, laundry washers and even sauna, Jacuzzi, pool and kids facilities in other accommodations. Timeshare providers like Resorts Condominiums International, Interval International, Holiday Club, The Registry Collection and Preferred Residences, to name a few have thousands of destinations around the world for their clients to enjoy.
2. FLEXIBILITY OF USAGE
Added to that is the flexibility of when and where to use it. They have various types of ownership to choose from that would suit their lifestyle: fixed week, floating week or rotating/flex week ownership. If the owner is unable to use his timeshare for that year, he can rent it out or give it out as a gift to friends or donate to charity. And if he and his family get tired of going to the same holiday accommodation venues and want to try other new destinations, they can swap their timeshare with other affiliated vacation ownership resorts around the globe. They may also join in the timeshare networks in order to exchange their timeshare ownership with another timeshare owner directly or thru third party agents.
3. OWNERSHIP BENEFITS
It also carries along with it a sense of ownership. Timesharing is vacation ownership or having a long-term vacation plan for yourself and your family. It allows a timeshare owner to have a part-ownership in a unit in a host of resorts, vacation rentals, holiday homes and hotels for at least a week every year. You own your annual vacation time in your purchased holiday accommodation or in your choice of new destination as part of timeshare exchange options.
4. QUALITY EXPERIENCE
Many satisfied families appreciate the value of being able to spend quality time with family and friends in luxurious destinations worldwide. One couple said that if it had not been for timeshare, they would just be staying in the usual budget hotels and not be able to see majestic destinations within and outside their country. Certainly, it will multiply your opportunity to enjoy and afford quality experience because of your exposure to various destinations.
5. AFFORDABILITY COUPLED WITH LUXURY
It allows you to plan your vacation in the long-term. One satisfied owner said that with a timeshare, it forces him to make time for his family’s yearly luxury holiday vacation which helps keep the family together. It saves him also from current huge hotel rates as he is paying at today’s prices the cost of tomorrow’s vacation.
Also, instead of purchasing a vacation home, timeshare gives you the liberty to go to a different destination each year and saves you on a full mortgage, tax and maintenance cost as you are sharing the burden of maintenance cost with other owners. You only pay for a fraction of the cost of ownership proportionate to your use each year.
Timeshare is definitely a good alternative for keen travelers but must ensure that your payments are processed thru the help of reputable timeshare merchants that will allow your transactions to be facilitated whether in-person, over the internet or by phone.
