Spring Cleaning for your Timeshare Ownership

Spring is traditionally a time to get rid of all the clutter in your life, and that includes vacation clutter. Now is the time to take a long hard look at your ownership and ask yourself: Do I need this? Am I using it? And if not, why? Take some time to sit down and assess the value of your timeshare, and decide what to keep and what to let go over the next year.

Guide to Cleaning Out Your Timeshare

Take a look at the maintenance fees and membership fees for your timeshare, and make sure that you can set aside the money you’ll need. Budget your travel costs for your vacation, so that you can be sure to enjoy every second of it without worrying about finances during your travels.

Be sure to consider the following:

  • Maintenance Fees: These are typically paid once every year. Can you afford them?
  • Membership Fees: How much are you spending for memberships in organizations like RCI or Interval International?
  • Taxes: Usually these are included in your maintenance bill. What does their total amount to?
  • Airfare: How far away is your timeshare? Are there more affordable ways to get there?
  • Car Rental: If you’re trying to save money on vacation, car rentals are not the only option. Try using bus or train systems, or only renting a car for one day trip, and making use of your resort’s amenities the rest of the time.
  • Food and Entertainment Costs: Do you have kids? Expenses like these can add up.
  • Pet-sitting/House-sitting: Staycations mean you won’t have this expense, but if you can take a vacation, try hiring a teenager to watch the house and dog, rather than paying a kennel.
