It is really very expensive to go for a vacation. A typical chain hotel can run up to $150 per night, after a couple of nights and a few meals out you may be wondering where all your hard-earned money went. That’s why it is a good idea to invest in cheap vacation packages that offer a good deal in exchange for 2 hours of your time to show off the property and explain the benefits of owning a timeshare or being a member of a travel club. Now, it’s important to keep in mind that cheap does not always mean subpar. You can find really good deals on vacation packages if you know where to look, and you may be surprised to find out that you can stay at hotels that are even better than what you are used to.
A timeshare allows a person to own the rights to stay, for a designated period of time, at a shared property. Each timeshare unit at the property is partly owned by a person for a week at a time, so, in theory; every unit can have 52 owners, one for each week of the year. Not only does a timeshare give you rights to a certain week a year, you can also trade your timeshare with the exchange company, to stay for a different time or a different place. There is generally an initial investment required an upfront, maybe a few thousand dollars, and then a nominal monthly fee. The two top timeshare exchange companies in the world are Resorts Condominiums International and Interval International.
Obviously, there’s no obligation to purchase or join anything on these cheap vacation packages, but it may be something you are interested in and may benefit you if you’re able to travel with it. Many people own Timeshares and use them regularly as the main way to travel with their families every year. Now, of course, the resorts know that only 1 out of 10 people that tour their property will end up purchasing into the plan, so their real purpose of offering these great rates is advertising. There are a lot of times throughout the year that hotels and resorts will offer their rooms to travel agencies, like us, at a steep discount, to help get the word out about the properties and fill up the rooms.
