Saving for a vacation can be one of the biggest expenses throughout the year. You can use savings tactics discussed here in my blog (which I highly recommend) or you can look for some great deals to help cut down on your costs. There is an amazing site that I’ve just recently been given the chance to review called RedWeek.com that allows you to browse timeshare rentals and resales.
While my husband’s grandmother was alive, every summer my husband’s family would go down to Cancun, Mexico. His grandmother owned several timeshares in the area. Back in 2008, I got to go with them and I have to say that it was an AMAZING vacation and I would do it again in a heartbeat if I could! I used to think that owning a timeshare was way out of my price range (and truth be told, I still do). Once I started taking a look around RedWeek, I discovered the concept of a timeshare rental! For only $14 per night at the “Aventura Spa Palace” in Cancun, I could have another fun and enjoyable trip!
Every family dreams of a fun summer vacation, but that can be difficult to fit into a family budget. The secret to a budget-friendly family vacation is timeshare rentals. Timeshare rentals allow families like yours to vacation at luxury resorts where you might not otherwise be able to afford to go.
The advantages to renting a timeshare directly from an owner include:
1) Timeshare rentals typically cost up to 50% less than cramped hotel rooms.
2) They are spacious: the kids can have their own bedroom which means the parents can stay up late in the living room while the kids go to bed early.
3) Most come with a kitchen so you can save money on the cost of meals.
4) Things to do: Most are attached to a resort where many of the amenities (waterpark features, children’s playgrounds, arcade game rooms, etc.) are included in the low rental price.
RedWeek is an online marketing site, with over 1.5 million members, where owners list their timeshares for rent. A Redweek.com membership gives access to all of the information on timeshare rental listings on RedWeek.com, including reviews, and the ability to engage in rental agreements with great budget-friendly offerings.
