There are plenty of ups and downs when it comes to timeshare ownership. On the plus side, you know where you’re going each year and what to expect, but on the downside there’s all those maintenance fees to think about… not to mention the headache of resort swapping if you fancy a change of scenery. Nonetheless, around 87% of timeshare holders are perfectly happy with their timeshare holiday arrangement.
There is much to be said for a good timeshare holiday. In fact, you could actually save money on your holiday costs in the long term with a timeshare holiday arrangement. But the problem comes when you either don’t want to visit your resort anymore, have no desire for overseas holidays, or your family don’t really want it passed down to them. In these instances, there are better things you could be spending your hard-earned money on.
Why Choose a Timeshare Holiday?
Most timeshare owners have invested in their resorts because they like going there. Furthermore, most timeshare properties are self-catered, which means the owner has all the freedom to eat when and where he likes, whether it be in the apartment or in the restaurants on the resort or in town. If you’re on a tight budget, then simply going self-catering and buying all your food from the local supermarket can help you keep the cost of your holiday down, leaving you with more money to spend enjoying sights and attractions in your destination.
And, what’s more, the more you explore your timeshare holiday destination, the more hidden gems you’ll find. If you’re willing to venture further afield than your resort itself, you can find things to keep you amused year after year. Ever been on holiday somewhere and regretted not having the time to visit something nearby? Well, when you’re returning again next year for your annual timeshare holiday, you can pick up where you left off!
Knowing where you’re going year after year also has the benefit of allowing you to book flights and other attraction tickets far in advance. With flights, this can mean substantial savings, which you may not otherwise get when booking a holiday. Budget airlines, for example, have been a real help to people who enjoy a timeshare holiday each year: the low prices on flights cut the cost of holidaying even further.
