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.
