Vacation time and traveling periods

While considering how many weeks a year you will need and how you use accommodation are both important, the time of the year in which you may be restricted to travel should be your number one consideration. If you can’t use it, don’t buy it. For example, people in the field of education such as teachers must be buying timeshares that will allow them booking privileges in high season such as during the Holidays, March Break, or summer vacation weeks.

How often, how long and how flexible is your vacation time?

1) 1 week at a time with a maximum of 10 days... More than 7 to 10 days, you’re beginning to feel restless... If it is easy for you to take one week anytime with little notice, you may be retired and/or have the flexibility to take time off, you should consider last minute bookings advantages. Consider type A

2) 1 week minimum and up to 2 weeks at the same convenient spot with all the facilities you may need right on site... the less luggage you have to handle, the better... so for you moving from place to place is not a vacation. Your vacation time may be restricted to certain dates and high season travel is needed. You need certainty and hassle-free vacations. Consider types B and D

3) 2 to 3 consecutive weeks while staying at different places and not staying more than 3 or 4 days or one week at the most... You’re active and a changing environment adds variety to your vacation. Although you like to plan ahead, you can easily deal with the unexpected and are ready to leave within a few weeks notice. You also enjoy weekend getaways on a regular basis. Consider types A-C-E

Where do you like to go or plan to go?

Specific destinations: Hawaii, Paris, California – Consider C
Mostly the Caribbean – Consider A and B
European destinations at least once a year - Consider C
Driving destinations close to home - Consider E
Anywhere – new destinations every year, at least once a year – Consider A and C

What type of timeshare resales would suit your style?

1) Sun, fun and beaches All-inclusive packages are pretty common in timeshare resales. If your selections mostly target this type of vacation for the convenience of hassle-free vacations as long as there are beaches, sun and fun, if restricted in your travelling dates while the less planning required for your vacation the better it is... Consider A and B

2) Cultural experiences such as family outings to amusement parks, City life entertainment, Museum, Wining & Dining, and Shopping are there to get the most of your vacation. You’re after everything that nourishes your senses and you need a convenient location that will provide you with a safety environment for your family and an easy access to discover and enjoy your surroundings. Consider B and C

3) Outdoors and Sport vacation: golf, skiing, water sports and so on. For you a vacation has to bring your favorite outdoor activities closer than ever and, at the same time, can gather all of your family under the same roof. The convenience of a golf course nearby or onsite; a ski-in, ski-out unit located right on the slopes; benefiting from additional discounts and members privileges makes you feel great! Convenience and location are your prime requisites! Consider D and E
