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.
