Find a Timeshare You Can Drive To

published on July 10, 2009 by

Is it time to find a timeshare you can drive to? Some timeshare owners are considering selling their units on the resale market to find a timeshare resort closer to home. With vacation budgets tight in this economy, many people who still want a vacation, would prefer to save money by driving to their destination instead of flying. Driving can be much more convenient than flying, and even with gas prices fluctuating, certainly cheaper. Plus, when you drive, there is more fun family time in the car. See these tips for traveling with kids. You can go at your own pace and stop along the way when you see something interesting. You could even stumble upon a fun tourist spot you may not have even known about.

Driving can also be the preferred method of travel for retired timeshare owners who no longer want to go through the hassle of airports and flying. The far away trip to Mexico or the Caribbean was great for family trips when the kids were younger, but, with the children grown and out of the house, a far away destination can seem like more of a hassle than a vacation. A resort that is within driving distance now has great appeal.

Those who love timeshare ownership have a few options. You could simply exchange your current property, year after year and take advantage of the great resale values out there by purchasing a second timeshare closer to home. Or, you could resell your existing unit and use the proceeds to purchase a resort that better meets your needs by being just a car ride away. Typical timeshare resales cost a fraction of what you’d pay from the developer and could be up to 80% less than retail, so, check out today and peruse the newest timeshare resale listings. You might find just what you are looking for.
