I try to save every penny I have. We never go on vacations, rarely eat out, and shop with coupons when possible. Few times we do go on vacation, we pick the best value for the buck. Few years ago I rented timeshare from someone who wasn’t planning to use it. The vacation spot looked awesome and only couple hours away from Chicago. The price was about 80% of the hotel room cost (definition of a hotel room – room with two beds). However instead of two bed and in-room coffee deal, I got gorgeous two bedroom suite with a dinning room, full kitchen, Jacuzzi, and laundry unit. Oh, I should of taken a picture of everything just so I can brag!
Since then I started looking for timeshare rental.
The idea is simple. Bob has a timeshare and he will not be using it – he is looking to sell it. I am willing to buy it. Done.
But where do you find Bob? Unless you know him personally, it would be difficult to do. Trust me, I’ve been chasing timeshare owners for couple years. When I got introduced to RedWeek, I jumped on the opportunity – this is the place where timeshare owners hang out.
Another reason why I love renting timeshare – kitchen. How difficult is it to make breakfast for 4? Not at all. Making and eating breakfast in the suite saved my family some serious money. And no dress code required
Was this a gimmick to make me buy timeshare? Did I have to attend timeshare meeting when using timeshare rental? The Answer is – NO and NO (unless you really want to). When renting from timeshare owner, you are a guest, and not a prospect. The process is not any different from renting a regular hotel room.
