Timeshare holidays can be attractive because this system provides the opportunity to enjoy, for a certain period each year, the exclusive use of a property in a luxury resort in another state or even in another country. But the lack of information and the shift of those who sell such holiday deals can put people in extremely unpleasant situations, so it is more prudent to avoid them.
However, you do not have to own a timeshare to stay in a timeshare. This system is somehow like a hotel: you can book rooms directly from the operators. While you stay there, you can expect them to try to sell you a timeshare, but you are not obligated to buy anything, not even if you attend a sales presentation because it is included in your package. You can collect vouchers and gift certificates they offer, but when it comes to buying a timeshare, it is entirely up to you.
Renting a timeshare is more convenient, considering that owning a timeshare is a long term contract that may become a financial burden for you, after a while.
If you are interested in renting, don`t expect typical hotel amenities, because timeshares are only about having a place to stay during your vacation.
There are companies that will tell you to be wise in your decisions, while they don’t sell timeshares, they can help you legally get out of timeshare contracts.
