Renting a Timeshare as a Smart Way to Vacation on a Budget

After our economy had been stricken by a crisis, most people are on super tight budgets these days and vacations have not been on their priority lists. Some vacationers are even trying to get out of their timeshares just to minimize their cost of living. But what if you can avail a timeshare for a super bargain price?

According to Consumer Reports, these days you don't have to buy a time share to enjoy what many people like about them like the resort facilities, a lot of room, including a kitchen and living room, in exotic locations. As Mandy Walker of Consumer Reports said, in this economic downturn, timeshare owners are anxious to rent and you can negotiate a really good deal. There are some units for as low as $400 a week and many in the $600 to $1,200 range.

There are many sites nowadays which have plenty of rent-from-owner listings and are categorized by location and even activities, like skiing or golf. But take note that most of these sites’ services charge fees to get a full access.

However, if you are considering renting a timeshare as a vacation option, try to check out reviews of the resort where the timeshare is located, either on the rental sites or on free travel sites. Also keep in mind that most timeshares require at least a weekend and sometimes a week-long booking.

Currently, most individuals are on cutting back on spending as a way to minimize their daily cost. As for the vacationers, a number of owners are trying to get rid of their timeshares as this way of vacationing is becoming costly at these times. However, any eager vacationer can avail of such option at a much lesser cost through timeshare rentals.
