No, everyone I know who has them say they are losers, too costly to own and difficult to get rid of.

A lot depends on available locations and taking into consideration as to the history of the particular main-tenance fee increases. If the timeshare allows for weeks or points with either Disney, Wyndham or Marriott your good as most of these are 4-5 star resort destinations.. The average cost is $100 per mo. Once you arrive the potential bonus weeks , meals and theme parks just to sit in on presentations. At times they work the"room" , but will offer tremendous offers worth considering ,but get ready to empty the wallet.

Yeah, it's one of the resort affiliated ones listed above. Not for us, I never liked the idea or concept of timeshares. The relative does however and uses them several times a year.

Good idea.

We have a timeshare not too far from where we live.

We got it when we lived in the US and it was a place to come back to when we visited the UK.

When we bought it it had fairly poor leisure facilities, but that didn't bother us.

They and the adjoining hotel ploughed a load of money into this and it's now very nice, but the annual fees have doubled.

We do do timeshare swaps these days, using that week, but I'd rather we didn't have it at all.
