There is a smarter way to vacation than paying for the single use a of a hotel room for vacation. For about the same money as it would cost to reserve a few vacations in a nice hotel, accommodations can be owned forever in a deeded vacation timeshare. This means that you can vacation in “your” residence or villa or that you can exchange your to vacation in resorts virtually anywhere in the world.

The largest and most respected companies in the resort industry are selling timeshare resort condos. Marriott, Disney, Four Season, Ritz-Carlton, Hilton and Wyndham have have developed stunning resorts with numerous amenities in desirable locations which are incredibly popular. The fact that strong consumer legislation now governs the timeshare industry, combined with the fact that solid developers are now the rule, has given the timeshare industry the stability once only accorded to luxury hotels.

They will not receive a bill for the rest of their lives because they own their accommodation as deeded property. The money saved here quickly pays back the low initial purchase price.

2. Spacious accommodations – like home: As opposed to staying in a small hotel room, enjoy status and fine treatment as a condo owner. It’s a much more comfortable and upscale way to vacation.
