A good question has been raised by timeshare owners who have experienced the closing of their resort for weeks and sometimes months for repairs. Nobody, including us here at Timesharefun.com have read our agreements about this subject. I guess since we purchase our timeshare units for less than 10 cents on the dollar and our 3 deeded weeks are in the midwest we never thought about this. But we have thought about timeshare owners who have purchased their units along the coast, where this is more prevalent.

I’m so sorry we’re late. We couldn’t use our stupid timeshare again this year. So we’re staying here again with my grandson. He treats us so well. You know, Gladis, Sam and I finally got rid of our timeshare after years of not being able to use it or sell it. I got rid of it myself using the Cancel Any Timeshare app. Only took 10 days to cancel the contract. Never have to worry about it again. Are you kidding me? Nope! Cancel Any Timeshare? They have an app for everything nowadays, huh? I’ll get my grandson, Jimmy, to help me download it. He just loves helping grandma Gladis. Ain’t that right, Jimmy? What’s that grandma? Ouch!!!

The look of frustration of a Westgate customer. We believe one of the reasons for these types of situations is Points vs deeded timeshare properties. Think about it. When can most families travel? Holidays, right? We saw this first hand while at a Westgate resort several years back. Because points give you the ability to use one or two days during the week or on week-ends and then check out after using one or two days the rooms or units have to be cleaned. So , if Westgate rents out two and three days during the week these units have to be cleaned before other customers check-in for their weekly rental or two or three day rental. With weekly exchanges only one cleaning is done.
With the purchase of deeded weeks we trade for weeks. With points a unit may have to be cleaned several times a week. Not an ideal situation. More wear and tear.
How to Get a Timeshare from Previous Owners for less than $1,000.
Though it has its pros and cons, a timeshare can help you attain your dream.
Examine your motives:
If you’re looking for a vacation spot that you can return to year after year—or trade for spots in other locations—this is for you.
Examine your options carefully. When you buy a timeshare you can buy a fixed time in a fixed place; a floating arrangement, where the dates you use your timeshare are flexible; or an arrangement where you can choose between different locations and times using points.
If you buy a timeshare affiliated with a large resort you know you’ll be getting a certain level of elegance, cleanliness, and reliability.
This is almost like having an annual pre-paid resort location.
Listen to the video here and decide for yourself. We here at timesharefun.com have purchased 3 deeded timeshare vacation weeks over the last 17 years from previous owners for less than 10 cents on the dollar from what they paid.
Check out www.tug2.net and buy a vacation week for less than you can rent it and own it as a dedicated vacation week each year.
Note: No matter where you go in life and no matter what you purchase you will always find happy people and unhappy people. Here is a family enjoying what they purchased.
Consider finding a timeshare from a family who have used a timeshare for vacations for years and now wish to sell, like we did, for a little as $1.00, and buy it and enjoy great vacations. Check out: www.tug2.net for some great timeshare properties.
I think it’s turned out to be a great investment not only for the great vacations we have had but the memories we are making as a family. When we went to Disney World we trade in our points to stay at a place called The Fountains there, which our kids love. So it’s actually been pretty economical really when you consider if we were going….we probally still take trips but we would be boarding a plane, which for us, that means five plane tickets soon to be six. >> I’ve heard a lot of my friends…people I know have said “Oh you know, we spent $2,000 to come to Disney World.” I’m like “wow, thats a lot of money. We didn’t spend that much.” When you sit down and think about the price of the tickets and you have three kids, two kids you have to pay for, different things like that. Come adding up the hotel expense and then adding in food too.
I can see how they would spend that much but, no, not us. So we are very proud owners. Very happy..

Timeshare Owners of Sunchaser Vacation Villas In Alberta Are Screwed!
The Alberta government says its hands are tied in helping hundreds of investors in a B.C. time-share from staving off what they’re calling outrageous payment demands by a Calgary-based resort owner.
After losing civil court rulings in B.C. and Alberta over the past two years, about 1,300 people who bought into what’s now called Sunchaser Vacation Villas in Fairmont Hot Springs, B.C., have been ordered to ante up as much as tens of thousands of dollars each in back-maintenance and renovation fees, bumped up by a 27 per cent interest rate.
This is a personal opinion of the writer of this article, but is backed up by people writing comments at Tug2.neta popular timeshare magazine. Read the article. My wife and I do not own points and have written many times articles that it is nothing but a money making scheme for that corporation. You don’t own anything with points!It’s merely a membership club. Nothing more nothing less.
Wyndham Sued For Alleged Elder Abuse Against Senior Citizens.
Mass action lawsuit seeks compensation under Tennessee law for timeshare owners, especially the elderly, for alleged abuse and exploitation due theft of their money by coercive, fraudulent and deceptive sales practices.
The lawsuit also alleges that current timeshare owners have a difficult time getting reservations, because Wyndham controls and manipulates the reservations system.
We here at timesharefun.com have always advocated that the timeshare point system buys you nothing but a promise to nothing but air. We have written many articles over the last 17 years about buying a deeded specific timeshare week vs air in the point system How can anyone use points to purchase airfare and cruises and taxi cabs. It, in our opinion, is a money scam by the big boys in the timeshare business. Click here “deeds vs points”.
MEXICO CITY, Jan 10 (Reuters) – Rampant crime and gang activity in Mexico prompted the U.S. State Department on Wednesday to issue a stringent travel advisory, warning tourists to completely avoid five Mexican states, an advisory level often reserved for nations at war.
The State Department’s highest “do not travel” advisory places the states of Colima, Michoacan, Sinaloa, Tamaulipas and Guerrero at the same warning level as war-ravaged Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq.
Nothing Has Changed In Signing Contracts Immediately! Beware of the push to sign without reading the fine print!
Think About it, Read The Small Print, Tell The Salesperson You want to check the Internet
This will really get the salesperson upset. Tell them that you want to check Tug2.netfor resale timeshare unit. Understand, however, how at this point the salesperson will get a supervisor or try to dismiss you without getting your gift, which you are entitled to after 1.5 to 2.0 hours of attending a presentation.
Timeshare salespeople are notorious for pressuring consumers into immediate signing because they don’t want you to think about whether or not the deal is good for you.
This article is not meant to scare you but to make you aware of some of the dangerous developments sometimes in Mexico.
Thankfully nothing has ever happen to us when exchanging over the last 17 years that came anyway near what recently happened near Acapulco, Mexico.
Timeshare owners beware of the areas you travel in outside of your Mexican timeshare resort. It might be safer to stay on the resort while in Mexico. Do your research before you request an exchange. Click here for the article dated Jan. 7, 2018.
Watch this video before attending a timeshare presentation. It will give you a heads up preview of what is in store for you. Knowledge is power. Be prepared to say, “No”. The presentations have not changed much in 30 years other than the addition of the point system. The original system consisted of deeded timeshare weeks. The point system, in our opinion, is a money making scam of owning air. See various article we have written or someone else has written about points vs deeded timeshare.
(We here at Timesharefun.com do not receive any compensation for recommending this resort, but we do own a deeded week.)
We here at Timesharefun.com have personally used Tug2.net to purchase a Prime May-June re-sale week for only $400 from previous owners who were not longer using their timeshare, for exchanging purposes, and wished to sell. Here is the unit we purchased from the previous owners. Two bedroom, two bath, enclosed hot tub in the living area Click Here.
The deeded week was at Breezy Point Internationalonly 3 hours from our home here in Minnesota. The previous owners lived only one mile outside of Breezy Point International and partly purchased the timeshare for the privileges of using the resort facilities anytime during the year when family and relatives visited. Otherwise, during the 10 years they owned the deeded week they used it for exchanging vacations to other resorts around the USA.
We had a professional closing facility take care of all the details and the exchange of ownership took place within 30 days. We have used our deeded week every year for the last 5 years and continue to look forward every spring early summer to using it.

Want to get in on the ultimate experience of skiing Aspen? Check out one of these resorts, listed in no particular order:

This simple philosophy makes the Aspen Highlands a favorite with locals. But just because it is low key by tourist standards, doesn’t mean it isn’t tough.

Things To Do In Orlando, Florida while on your timesharefun vacation.
Orlando is centrally located in the state of Florida, with the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Gulf of Mexico to the west.
With over two million people, Orlando is the state’s third largest metropolis.
For thrill seekers, and parents wanting to spend quality time with their kids, Orlando means just one thing: action! It is the place where imaginations run wild. Each year over 50 million tourists escape to the sunny city for a fun-packed holiday in a world of make-believe.
Sure, there are some beautiful sculpture gardens, botanic gardens, art museums, and inner city attractions in Orlando, but most people come here to visit theme parks! They are scream provoking, laughter inspiring and surprisingly educational. They make you want to stay all day and go again tomorrow.
They have so much to offer that you wonder how you can fit it all in in one visit. The Orlando Theme Parks are the ride of your life! The most famous local attraction, and perhaps the most magical of all, is Walt Disney World. The place to see all the cartoon characters of your childhood come to life and introduce them to your children. Cuddles are also free at the Universal Resort, and so is dancing! You don’t have to be a kid to love Wet ‘n Wild, one of the oldest and most popular water parks in the country. Whether you bring your friends, your family, or come by yourself, you can splash around all day without getting bored. Dive into SeaWorld for more thrilling rides. For a break from all the excitement, opt for the calming experience of seeing manta rays up close. They live in perfect harmony with other big marine creatures in the enormous aquarium. Don’t miss the dolphin show – it’s really spectacular! Jump in to join these smart marine mammals – an encounter you’ll never forget! Prepare to get your senses tricked at WonderWorks.
The upside-down building is full of daring experiences that you shouldn’t try at home. Legoland, down south in the Winter Haven area, is a supersized display of what can be achieved if you had thousands of the plastic building blocks we all grew up with. Imagine building a whole city! Zoom around in a tiny car, watch a Lego theater show and admire the miniature replicas of big Florida highlights such as The Kennedy Space Center. The actual Space Centre is to the east of the city on Merritt Island.
Go and check out giant rockets and meet an astronaut. It’s the only place in the world where you can tour the launch areas of space shuttles. To learn about the local wildlife, step inside Gatorland. It’s your chance to see these large reptiles up close and personal, including these extremely rare white alligators. Watch a nerve-wrecking crocodile wrestling show, or – See you later alligator! check out the less dangerous species in the wildlife reserve. Whiz kids will be drawn to the Science Center where they can discover the inner workings of magnetism, electricity and gravity. There’s a lot to learn here! Florida is the Sunshine State and Orlando offers year-round outdoor entertainment. The summers are steamy and temperatures hardly ever drop to freezing point in winter. Yet, there is no cooler place than The Universal Studios where The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and the incredible super heroes of your comic books come to life.
At night the Universal Orlando Resort lights up with neon signs that will point you to the many restaurants and live shows. Come to Orlando for the family vacation of a lifetime. With all its natural beauty and theme parks, the city has something to offer for everyone!.

A Husband and Wife Team , In Colorado, Want To Help Timeshare Owners.
Timeshares to most people are stressful and costly financial obligations they’ve been burdened with for months or even years. With the mortgage payments, maintenance fees, special assessments and the entire timeshare contract, it can be an overwhelming hardship to deal with.
