Rentals – Time Share
March 31, 2014
Renting a condo or a time share unit is a great alternative to paying premium rates for hotel rooms. You can often get a truly great deal, especially if you rent privately or through a simple rent-by-owner website.
So what are the advantages of time share rentals?
Firstly, when you rent a time share you are generally going to be staying in a time share unit on a resort. Thus you can enjoy all the great facilities you might expect from a resort. Most time share resorts have a selection of pools and restaurants, kids’ clubs, bars, room service and so forth. When you rent a time share from a club member, you gain access to all of these great facilities that you would not necessarily enjoy if your rented a private condo elsewhere.
You tend to get more for your money when renting time share as more often than not, time share owners just want to cover their maintenance fees during times when they can’t use their time share. So, you will find great deals in great places.
The destinations where you will find time share rentals are also frequently excellent choices for family vacations, where there is something for all the family to do and see. Time share operators select the destinations where they will build resorts carefully, looking for locations that have a variety of attractions both geographically and culturally.
Renting a time share also has benefits in terms of design. Unlike hotel rooms, most timeshares have kitchen and social areas within the units so you can live like you would at home – probably with a great view.
Time share rental is also a good step to take if you are thinking about purchasing a time share or investing in a vacation ownership program. You can try out what it would be like to be a time share owner before making any commitments.

Joining a Vacation Club
October 10, 2013
Joining a vacation club has many benefits, whether they be discounts, flexible travel, great value or wonderful accommodations. Vacation clubs offer members the chance of vacation ownership without having to buy a specific property. That is, you buy the equivalent points for a timeshare property and you can then use those points like currency when you choose the destination that you wish to visit and the type of accommodation you need. Likewise, if you already own a timeshare, you can join a vacation club with your property offering it for exchange, which means you can then take advantage of total flexibility.
There are many pluses to becoming a vacation club member, such as the excellent accommodations on offer which are, as a rule, much bigger than hotel rooms and boast kitchens and living areas for all the family. Vacation clubs also qualify the accommodations that they include in their repertoire, using strict criteria that will ensure that you get amazing units in quality resorts. You benefit from their expertise and judgement of properties.
Perhaps the most popular reason for joining a vacation club is flexibility. You are able to make your timeshare work for you and are free to select the dates you wish, the kinds of accommodations you want, in the destination of your choice every time you take a vacation. You are not limited (unless you wish to do so) to return to the same place every year. Vacation clubs also allow you to bank you points if you do not wish to travel one year so that the following season you can use them for a more luxurious unit or one with more bedrooms. You can also use your points for a weekend rather than a whole week and bank the residual points.
Like traditional timeshare, being a member of a vacation club inspires people to take regular vacations. So, if you are the kind of person who misses out on great trips because you never seem to get motivated to travel, joining a vacation club spurs you to make the most of your investment. Moreover, booking a vacation becomes so easy, you just have to press a few keys on the computer and book online or make a quick telephone call, and your vacation is ready. Simple!
Additional benefits that vacation clubs offer their members are discounts and special rates. Sometimes you can receive discounts on airfares and transfers as well as discount vouchers for local businesses and restaurants near the resorts you are visiting.
