A timeshare could be a good option for some people, especially for big families who like to travel to the same destination for a number of weeks every year, that’s why timeshares are usually sold as a one-week program.

Timeshare Ownership

Timeshare ownership is the right to use a property for a certain period of time, usually weeks.

This system is pretty simple: you can use your timeshare property for a week every year, but not all timeshare weeks are the same; there are different plans on which timeshare ownership is sold, the most popular being: fixed weeks and floating weeks. As we have already seen in:

 What is the Difference Between a Fixed Week and a Floating Week?

If you are interested in buying a timeshare, the first decision you will need to make is whether you want to purchase a fixed week or a floating week.

To help you a little in making your decision, let’s see the difference between a fixed week and a floating week.

Fixed Week

The most basic type of unit is the fixed week. In a fixed week, you have the right to use your timeshare unit during a specific week of the year; this will be the same week in the same unit every year.

The advantage of having a fixed week is that you know exactly when you are going each year.

But if you are not able to go during this week, you will forfeit your timeshare week without compensation.

Floating Week

A floating week is when you purchase a non-specific timeshare week at the resort. In the floating week system, you have the right to use your unit during a specified season, but you need to contact the resort to reserve the week during the float period.

The advantage of owning a floating week is that if you are not able to use it during a stipulated week, you have the flexibility to choose a different date.

But the downside is that the accommodations are usually reserved for those coming first, and sometimes you are not able to make a reservation, or you have to wait until there is availability in the hotel.

As you can see, the type of week that you will own (fixed week or floating week) will depend on the taste of each person.

Is Timeshare Ownership a Good Option?

Although the idea of owning a timeshare might sound good, there are many complaints about it. These are the most common complaints about timeshares:

  1. Timeshares are overpriced.
  2. Timeshare maintenance fees greatly increase every year.
  3. Timeshare presentations are aggressive and long-lasting.
  4. Timeshares do not have any value on the market.
  5. Timeshares are very difficult to sell or rent.

 Timeshare scams in Mexico are increasing every year. People need to be aware of the sales pitch.

If the timeshare salespeople are very aggressive and try to make you sign the contract in any way possible, they are probably trying to scam you.

They will tell you everything you want to hear, but you need to read your timeshare contract very carefully.

And before you buy, make sure that you will be able to use your timeshare weeks, whether they are a fixed week or a floating week.

How do I Get Rid of my Timeshare Weeks?

If you own a fixed week or a floating week, it doesn’t matter, there is a way out.

Timeshare weeks are very difficult to sell or even rent, Which is why the best solution is to cancel the timeshare contract.

The Timeshare cancellation is the most effective way to get rid of your timeshare weeks. When you cancel a timeshare, there are no further strings attached to the resort.
