One of the main questions many timeshare sellers get is this; “do people even bother with timeshare anymore? And if so, why?”. There is a common misconception these days that timeshares and vacation clubs no longer have any value. The reality, however, is entirely different. The timeshare market has evolved with the consumer!
Why are people still buying timeshares and joining vacation clubs?
Well, for a start, they offer great value for money in the long run, and, secondly, they offer better quality for the money spent! There’s a reason that families, couples, singletons and retirees alike opt to join vacation and timeshare clubs; they save huge amounts of money in the long run. Think about how much you pay for your yearly vacation, and then think about how hotel and resort prices rise every few years. The one off lump sum, and low yearly maintenance fees of a timeshare might seem a lot to begin with, but in the long run you save a huge amount of money!
There’s also the fact that many people find timeshares and vacation clubs to be much more convenient than the alternative. This is partly because the quality is guaranteed to be consistently high, but also because it removes the need to visit comparison websites or to run from one travel agent to another in search of the best deal. In fact many timeshare providers have a concierge service that can help you to find the best deals on your plane tickets.
Furthermore, you’ll see that most timeshare providers have evolved past the old fashioned and rigid system of allocating specific weeks and units to a membership. Instead they will likely use the more up-to-date points system that offers members freedom and flexibility. This means that you can choose where, when and how you vacation, but you’ll always be sure that you’re going to get the quality that you’ve come to expect.
Finally, we know that for most people it is essential to feel a sense of belonging in order to be relaxed. A timeshare offers you this; as time passes you’ll get to know the resorts and people very well, and you’ll come to feel at home. Essentially you’ll get all the benefits of having a second home, but without all the attached responsibilities and financial strains that come with a second property.
