Even When Hotels are Booked, There's Still Time to Rent Timeshares

With Labor Day weekend approaching, consumers may still find lodging available by taking advantage of timeshare rentals.

Dover, NH (August 29, 2007) -- Say the word timeshare to many people and they think of a lifelong commitment to vacationing at the same destination, year after year. SellMyTimeshareNow says this is an out of date perception of timeshare vacations and those who make this assumption miss some of the best and most flexible opportunities in resort lodging available, including great deals on timeshare rentals.

SellMyTimeshareNow founder, Jason Tremblay says, "Vacation accommodations include more than hotels, motels, or renting a cabin. But many people overlook the incredible opportunities to rent timeshares at luxurious resorts."

With Labor Day weekend approaching and people anxious to squeeze in one last vacation weekend, hotel lodging at many destinations is booked solid. Timeshare rentals, however, are often still available. Timeshare rentals are advertised through SellMyTimeshareNow and other companies that help timeshare owners market their properties for sale or rent. Timeshare rentals are also available by contacting some resorts directly. Jason Tremblay explains, "While a resort is always looking to rent suites and condos for the highest price they can command, individual timeshare owners are often looking only to offset their cost, not turn a profit by renting their timeshare. Timeshare rental deals can be fabulous."

Florida timeshares and Las Vegas timeshares top the list of high-demand timeshare resort areas year round, but a recent Hotwire.com survey reveals that top destinations for Labor Day 2007 include Chicago, Illinois; New York City, New York; Atlanta, Georgia; St. Louis, Missouri and Boston, Massachusetts. With timeshare resales and timeshare rentals available in all of these areas as well as many others, even people who have procrastinated about making Labor Day weekend plans still have a chance to enjoy spacious accommodations that frequently include kitchens and eat-in dining areas.

The vice president of marketing at SellMyTimeshareNow, Mehrl Martin, says, "More people are recognizing the value of timeshares all the time. Timeshares afford people easy vacation planning and a way to lock in the price of accommodations. The fact that major hoteliers including Disney, Ritz Carlton, and Hilton offer timeshare and vacation clubs is proof that timeshares work for both consumers and for the hospitality industry."
