Looking for vacation ideas that aren’t timeshares? You’re in luck!

Timeshare companies sell people on the idea that having a timeshare means a lifetime of amazing vacations. But timeshares come with serious risks. And the truth is, you can get that without buying a timeshare. Here are our top vacation ideas for timeshare-free travel.

Traditional Vacation Rentals

Why spend upwards of $20,000 on a timeshare and pay annual maintenance fees when you can simply rent the same or similar units at any resort or hotel in the world? Instead of getting locked into the same location, you can try a different place each year. And if you really like a place, you can always go back. As vacation ideas go, rentals beat timeshares for their flexibility and opportunity. Plus you can sign up for loyalty programs and take advantage of deals and other travel hacking methods that you can’t do with a timeshare.

Airbnb & Other Home Sharing Apps

If a traditional resort or rental isn’t up your alley, consider Airbnb or other similar home-sharing apps. On Airbnb, you can find a million different kinds of rentals all over the world. Stay in a treehouse, a penthouse, or a tiny house. The choice is yours. This model gives travelers so much variety and flexibility. Timeshares simply can’t compete.

Timeshare Rentals

If you really have your heart set on a timeshare resort, you can always rent a timeshare without the commitment. And sometimes you can get amazing deals from owners who can’t use their timeshare and don’t want to waste their money. Marketplaces like Redweek and Timeshare Users Group give you access to all kinds of timeshare rental listings. Enjoy all the amenities of a timeshare and skip the high price tag and annual fees. Make sure to carefully read the fine print, though. Some timeshares limit access to amenities for renters.

Vacation Homes

For people with a little more financial security who are looking for consistent vacations for themselves and their families, a vacation home or property can be a good investment. Like a timeshare, you can visit year after year. But unlike a timeshare, buying a vacation home or property is an investment. Plus, you get the freedom to decides when to go, what to upgrade, and what the rules are!


For low-cost vacation ideas, you can’t beat camping. If you want to really rough it, go for a state or national forest. They offer very low-cost sites. But they also offer few amenities. Be prepared to bring your own water and firewood and don’t expect electrical hook-ups or fancy toilets. State and National parks also offer budget-friendly sites and many have bathrooms, showers, electrical hook-ups and more. Or go for private campgrounds featuring all manner of activities including pools, water parks, bike rental and more. No matter which camping option you choose, you’ll enjoy fresh air and access to natural resources. Plus with all that money you save, you can vacation more often!


Of course, the ultimate in budget-friendly vacation ideas is the staycation. You can take a vacation without leaving home. Clear your calendar and act like a tourist in your own backyard. You can stay in your own house, or stay in a hotel or Airbnb in your own city. Either way, you save on the cost of traveling to a new destination. Popular staycation ideas include hitting up your local museums, scheduling a spa day, and ordering room service (hello, food delivery!)

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. Let us help you. 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, the resorts are loath to give back the money they’ve already taken for timeshares.

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 go above and beyond for our customers by helping to protect you, and have the best success rate in the industry, rated 5-stars by clients. 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 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 will work with our expert, experienced team whose job is to keep you in the loop throughout the entire cancellation process. We are 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.
