There are already millions of timeshare owners around the world that are enjoying wonderful vacations year after year but the concept of timeshare may be a minefield for people who don’t know much about the timeshare industry.

Timeshare ownership is definitely something an avid traveler should consider looking into. People who enjoy frequent trips away could truly benefit from a more permanent holiday solution.

There are thousands of timeshare resorts around the world, you are sure to find one that suits you financially and fills all your holiday requirements. Owning timeshare has become easier than ever and with the option of buying a timeshare resale, there is a timeshare ownership for every budget.

The Timeshare Consumer Association have detailed the top reasons for buying timeshare.


Many people shy away from timeshare because they believe that it’s too expensive. In some cases this may be true but with timeshare available in many countries you will definitely be able to find one to suit your budget.

As mentioned above, you could also look into buying a timeshare resale. By buying a timeshare from someone who already owns timeshare you can have a more personal experience. The owner will be able to share with you all the great experiences that they have had while using their ownership. Buying directly from a timeshare owner is generally cheaper as they don’t have the same costs as a resort. Owners don’t have to worry about marketing or sales-related costs
There are various reasons an owner may want to sell their timeshare, it could be they feel they are no longer benefiting from the timeshare after so many years or that they no longer want to travel.


Although ‘affordability’ is about the cost of timeshare, there are so many more savings to be made.

Owning timeshare means you have got you holidays planned year after year. You no longer have to search and pay for, sometimes, overpriced hotels or accommodation. You may also find that your timeshare resort offers discounts to timeshare owners or free in-room ‘perks’ that other holiday makers have to pay extra for.

Explore The World

Owning timeshare doesn’t automatically mean that you have to holiday in the same unit at the same time every year. Many timeshare resorts and companies are affiliated with an exchange company, such as RCI or Interval international.

By being part of an exchange program it gives you the option to explore more of the world. Some of the timeshare companies that offer an exchange program are Marriott Vacation Club, Disney Vacation Club and Diamond Resorts International.


Owning timeshare gives you so much more than choosing to stay in a cramped hotel room. When looking to buy timeshare you will have already considered the size unit that you will need. Timeshare comes in all shapes and sizes, there are studios as well as multiple room units, giving you the opportunity to find what is right for your specific requirements.

Most timeshare accommodations also include full bathrooms and kitchens, which gives them more of a home feeling. By having these amenities it gives the option to prepare your meals in the unit instead of having to eat out all the time like you would staying in a hotel.
