When we think of timeshare most of us think of owning our own timeshare unit and spending endless vacations in our home away from home with our nearest and dearest. However, there is also another offshoot of the usual timeshare story and that is timeshare rentals.
Renting a timeshare can be an excellent option for families as you benefit from all the privileges of a timeshare unit without actually owning it: large accommodations, kitchen facilities, living areas and plenty of space for all the family. Timeshare accommodations are also usually located on a large resort, so you also get to enjoy all the luxuries of being in a hotel environment: pools, spa, room service etc. You will be surprised by the opportunities you can find to rent a timeshare.
The best way to rent a timeshare is to do so via the owner themselves. When you go directly to the owner you get a much better deal than when working with an agent who will take a commission and sometimes even hike prices. The other advantage is that you can communicate directly with the owner and ask specific questions without having to pass through a third party. Your queries are more likely to be dealt with in a quick and timely manner. Owner direct timeshare rentals are also beneficial if you decide to return to the same location as you can book for the following year and perhaps get a discount.
