Staycation Tips: 5 Ways To Enjoy Your Hometown

You don’t need lots of money, a fancy timeshare or even a passport to enjoy the “vacation state of mind.” Why not enjoy yourself where you are with these staycation tips?

What’s A “Staycation”?

We all know what a vacation is, but what’s a staycation? A staycation is a vacation in your hometown and sometimes even in your own house. You can do all the touristy things like visit museums and beaches that you don’t normally frequent. Check out these fun staycation tips to help you make vacation where you are.

Clear Your Schedule

Just because you’re in your own town doesn’t mean you should go about your regular life. One of our best staycation tips is don’t allow work to creep in. You might consider not even telling work people that you’re in town. Make sure you are entirely off the clock. Take care of any regular tasks in advance—no grocery stores or lawn mowing this week. Consider a babysitter for the kids or a dog-walker for Spot. Then sleep in and stay up late. It’s your vacation, after all!

Make Your House a Hotel

Consider what you love about hotels. Clean sheets. Housekeeping. Room service. Pools. So, you probably can’t quickly add a pool to your home, but Staycation Tips 101 says bring other hotel amenities to your front door. Hire a housekeeper at the beginning of your staycation to get your home in hotel shape and have them come in again during your staycation. Make sure your sheets and towels are clean and ready for use. Have take-out delivered. Keep a bottle of champagne in your fridge. Maybe even arrange for a box of fancy chocolates to arrive on your doorstep. Or if camping is more your speed, pitch your tent in the yard and cook hot dogs and s’mores over the firepit.

Rent a Fancy Car

Rent a convertible and experience your own city in style! What better way to change your perspective than with the top down and wind in your hair (or lack of hair—we’re not judging). Drive along your local lakes or rivers. Explore new neighborhoods. Turn heads!

Set a Budget

When you take a traditional vacation, you put aside money. Well, a staycation is no different. Luckily, you don’t have travel expenses, so a modest budget can go a long way. Having a budget that’s more than you would spend on a regular day helps you embrace the travel spirit in your own town. So, when the kids want that souvenir at the museum, you can say yes. And you can order the filet mignon at dinner because, hey, it’s staycation! If you want to save even more, look for travel packages or other deals for your city. Or take advantage of matinees or lunches you don’t usually attend because you’re working. Can’t get enough thrifty travel tips? Check out more here.

Get Touristy

When you visit a new city on a vacation, you usually make it a point to see all the sights. On a staycation, make sure to check out your hometown sights. Search your city on a travel site like Lonely Planet or Fodor’s. Consider buying yourself a guidebook. Then take the time to see the art museums, zoos, and other attractions. Don’t hold back! Snap silly tourist pictures across the city. You can do the things you don’t usually do because they’re too expensive or too touristy…and that’s the whole point.

Relieve Yourself of the Unwanted Timeshare Burden

Your information is 100% secure and encrypted. We will never sell or share your information with anyone.

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.
