You don’t need a timeshare to invest in vacation.

With all the pressure these days to live an Instagram-worthy #bestlife, it’s no wonder people are looking to invest in vacation. After all, think of the amazing beach selfies! And the timeshare industry–ever the innovators–are capitalizing on that. In fact, “invest in vacation” is one of their key selling points. But is a timeshare really an investment in vacation? Is it an investment at all? And do you need a timeshare to invest in vacation? Let’s find out.

Is a timeshare really an investment?

Sorry, timeshare reps, but a timeshare is not an investment. In fact, it’s actually a liability. You see, investments have an intrinsic value and tend to build value over time. That’s the whole definition: putting in money for financial or material gain. Timeshares have no intrinsic value. In fact, whatever value they do have drops like a rock as soon as you sign your contract. If you try to sell it to someone else, you are not likely to get anything close to the price you paid. Plus, you are now liable for a lifetime of maintenance fees and special assessments. So, while you did spend a lot of money on that timeshare, it wasn’t an investment.

But do you invest in vacation with a timeshare?

This is really just a marketing line. Because although you’ll spend a lot of money, you won’t necessarily get good vacations. The reps are selling you the experience a timeshare might give you. You see, like a financial investment, timeshares can be risky. Yes, maybe you’ll have an enjoyable vacation. You may even get many enjoyable vacations out of it. Your Instagram feed might be full of those beach selfies. Or not. Because your timeshare contract doesn’t guarantee vacations. It guarantees either the right to use a property or the right to make reservations to stay at a set of properties. Check your contract. We doubt it says “vacation guaranteed.” So, from that perspective, a timeshare is more like a vacation gamble.

Timeshare Free Vacations

So, it’s pretty clear that you don’t need a timeshare to invest in vacation. What do you need? Well, that depends on you. Take the money you were going to spend on that timeshare and go anywhere in the world! If a timeshare-style beach-front resort is your idea of paradise, you can easily rent one. Or invest that money for real and travel on your profits. Or you can buy a vacation home that you really own and control. Investment plus vacation all in one!

But maybe part of why you want a timeshare is that you think you’ll be able to take more vacations for less money. After all, isn’t that part of why people love timeshares? Well, Consumer Reports finds that most people don’t really start seeing those savings for 13 years. The truth is that you can get find all kinds of travel savings without buying and without waiting 13 years. Check out these budget-savvy travel tips or get started in the fine art of travel hacking.

Frequently Asked Questions ?

How does PMG get me out of my timeshare contract?

PMG is not a resale, transfer, or donation company. We are consumer advocates—we help to negotiate the release of your timeshare contract obligation. We do not buy, sell, or rent your timeshare. Simply put, we help you to get out of your timeshare contract forever.

How long does the process usually take?

Usually less than 12 months, but it all depends on your situation. If your timeshare is free and clear with no mortgage, then the process may only take 3-9 months.

Speak to your advisor about the time, and what delays the resorts have put into place to prevent timeshare owners from departing their ownership. If you have a mortgage or past due maintenance fee, the process takes more time.

How much is my timeshare worth?

This is probably going to hurt, but whether you paid $5,000 or $50,000 for your timeshare, the IRS values all timeshares as worthless investments. In addition, that timeshare would have negative value due to the annual maintenance fee bill which compounds year after year. That is until PMG helps you cancel your timeshare.

Can I use your service if I still have a balance owed on my mortgage?

Yes. Whether you bought your timeshare 20 days ago or 20 years ago, PMG has a solution for you and is here to help.

Will my name be off the timeshare?

Yes! Permanently! GUARANTEED!

In addition to getting me out of my timeshare, can you recover the money I’ve already spent on mortgage payments and maintenance fees?

While we are able to recover money in rare cases, beware of any timeshare cancellation company that entices you with the promise of fund recovery. The truth is, timeshares are loath to give back the money they’ve already taken.

Are your consumer advocates really “consumer advocates”, or is that just a fancy word for salesperson?

Because most of our clients have had their trust betrayed by timeshare salespeople, we understand how some consumers can become a bit jaded. When you call us for a consultation, that’s exactly what you get, a consultation. At PMG, our job is not to sell you; our job is to help you get out of your timeshare. Which is why we have numerous 5-star reviews and an “A” (excellent) rating from the BCA.

Why should I choose PMG to get me out of my timeshare?

We pride ourselves on providing our customers with the best customer service in the industry. When you contact our company, you speak to a live person, not an automated system or voicemail. We go above and beyond for our customers by helping you to protect your credit and even repair your credit if needed. We offer a 100% money back guarantee, and we can provide documented proof of our success in helping customers just like you.

What happens after I sign up with you? Will I be apprised of your progress?

At PMG, we pride ourselves on our hands-on, boutique-style customer service, so every new client is assigned a case manager whose job is to keep you in the loop throughout the entire cancellation process. Your case manager is always just a phone call away.

How much is your fee?

Not all timeshare experiences are created equal. Some are more complicated than others, and every situation is different. That’s why our trained timeshare elimination consultants will ask you a series of questions designed to determine exactly what needs to be done to terminate your timeshare, how long it will take, and how they can best advocate for you. We will always seek the most cost-effective route for you.

What if I still have more questions?

Canceling a timeshare contract is not a cookie cutter process. With each situation being unique, once you complete the form below an experienced consumer advocate will call you today to discuss your options.
