What Are Timeshare Weeks & What Are They Used For?Frequently Asked Questions
Inexpensive Solution To Owning Your Own Vacation HomeWhat are timeshare weeks, and what is a week used for? A timeshare, also sometimes referred to as vacation ownership, is when multiple parties own the right to use a vacation property for a specific allotted period of time. This is most commonly seen in one week intervals, called timeshare weeks.
Over the past few years the amount of people who own timeshare weeks have steadily been on the rise. That is because timeshare weeks make what were once thought to be "dreams" a reality.
For example… If your "dream" is to one day own a beach front vacation home in Hawaii, you would literally have to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not more.
And realistically, how many of us are able to do that? And since it’s a vacation home, you would probably only vacation there a few weeks out of the year, correct?
Well, that’s why timeshare weeks work for many travelers! You now have all of the benefits of a high end vacation home, while only paying a fraction of the cost of the expenses and upkeep!
Week Types: Fixed, Floating, Fractional
- Fixed Week: You own the exact same week at the exact same timeshare property every single year.
- Floating Week: Floating weeks are when you own the right to a timeshare week, typically at your home resort where you originally purchased your week.
- Fractional Week: Fractional weeks are similar to fixed timeshare weeks, except fractional weeks are good for travelers looking to stay somewhere for a more extended period of time.
