Thrifty timeshare tips ways to save

Timeshares are an ongoing expense. Here are some timeshare tips to help you save.

The average timeshare owner pays $980 a year in maintenance fees, and those fees will increase over time. Even if your timeshare is paid off, that’s a lot today and will be more tomorrow. So, many owners are looking for ways to save. Check out these timeshare tips to keep your finances in top shape.

Rent Unused Weeks

Timeshares last a lifetime. And some years, you just can’t get there at the right time. If your timeshare allows you to rent your week, this can be a very thrifty timeshare tip. Rental is especially lucrative if you have a popular week in a popular location. You may be able to offer a good deal if you’re just trying to cover your maintenance fees. Or maybe you can even make a few dollars. Be sure that your timeshare allows rentals and watch out for any fees they might charge!

Get Creative With Points

If you have a points-based timeshare, you can get creative with points to maximize every penny. Of course, timeshare points can be complicated to understand and use. However, if you can put in the time and schedule in advance, you may be able to maximize your vacation. And if you have extra points left over, you can “rent” or sell them on a marketplace or exchange such as the Timeshare Users Group.

Travel on the Cheap

Unless you live near to your timeshare, travel is a cost right along with those maintenance fees. Since you don’t control your maintenance fees, it makes sense to do everything you can to save on travel. One way to do that is to take advantage of our timeshare tips for budget travel.

Online tools give you the power of knowledge. Find the best fares at sites like Kayak. Or consider road tripping to your destination. And definitely pack your own snacks. No one wants to pay airport prices—or even truck stop prices for fifty cents worth of baby carrots. Also, make use of your timeshare kitchen by eating in. You can skip the grocery store and have Amazon hook you up with the best prices on food delivered right to your door.

Exit Your Timeshare

Sometimes no matter how hard you try, you just can’t make timeshares work. Then our best timeshare tip is to try to exit your timeshare. With maintenance fees always on the rise, many people find that a timeshare just doesn’t suit their lives or their budget. Others encounter health issues or other challenges that keep them from using their timeshare. If this is the case for you, it may be time to seek timeshare cancellation.

One place to start with timeshare cancellation is talking to your resort or developer. Some have timeshare give-back programs. If this seems daunting, you may want to consider a timeshare cancellation partner.

Get a Timeshare Cancellation Partner

Timeshare contracts are complex and timeshare exit can be just as complex. Many people find it easier to have a timeshare cancellation partner like Primo help them get out of their timeshare. Because we do this every day, we have a lot of experience. This means you can relax knowing we’re working efficiently to get you out of your contract. Timeshare cancellation partners do charge a fee for their services, but that fee is far less than a lifetime of maintenance fees. At Primo, our fees are all backed by our 100% money-back guarantee.

The first step in working with us is to contact us and schedule a FREE consultation. During that consultation, we’ll work hard to educate you on the process and help put your mind at ease. If you decide to move forward, we’ll be with you every step of the way. We’ll send you regular updates as the process moves forward. And we’ll celebrate with you when you get your timeshare cancellation letter.

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.
