Resort Price Roundup | The Secret to Our Low Rates

published on April 20, 2021 by

One of the questions we hear most often is:

“How are your prices so low…there must be a catch right?”

Honestly, we understand the skepticism. In a world where telemarketers ask for your social security number and timeshare companies try to lure you in with questionable tactics, we all have good reason to be weary of deals that seem too good to be true.

So, in the name of calming worries and eradicating confusion, we are here to explain how our unbelievably low prices are feasible. And yes, we promise there is no catch. No seedy salesman tactics here folks! We treat our members the way we want to be treated; with transparency and respect.

How Works is one of the largest, most trusted timeshare booking sites online. That simply means we have a loyal community of both owners and non-owners who have joined together to share their rentals at direct cost to you.

Here at RedWeek, you will find luxurious rentals at breathtaking resort destinations…offered to you at owner-direct prices. This means you only pay a fraction of the resort’s rates because you are renting directly from an owner—with RedWeek as a trustworthy middleman and customer-friendly host.

Our Price Difference Explained

The reason you can find our timeshare rentals cheaper than even the “best advertised rates” elsewhere is because our rental inventory comes from individual timeshare owners.

Individuals are not bound by contracted nightly rates, and therefore have the luxury of being more flexible with their pricing. Most owners are simply looking to match the cost of their timeshare investment for that year so they don’t end up losing any money. In short: this means you can access the same rooms at the same resorts, even if you haven’t committed to being a timeshare owner yourself! Pretty cool, right?

Another cost that many people don’t realize factors into their final price is travel industry markups. When you book resorts on most major travel sites, you are typically paying markups for at least two companies – the travel site AND the inventory “channel manager” that consolidates the inventory for the site. Each company typically marks the price up between 12 – 25%. By the time you book your rental, you have paid varying steep fees to several middlemen.

RedWeek inventory, posted directly by the individual owners, bypasses all of that. We charge a minimal fee for using our online system to cover credit card processing and our operating costs. However, our total fees are still lower than each individual company’s markup involved in a typical travel transaction.

Price Comparison Roundup

Alright, let’s talk numbers. Here is a look into some current price comparisons for 2021. On average, RedWeek prices are about a quarter of the cost from resort sites, and close to half of the cost you can find on travel deal sites. Here are a few current price differences to review:

It’s a little shocking, right? If your gut reaction when seeing these prices is “No way, there’s gotta be a catch”, then you are not alone. Now that we’ve explained how our business model works, we hope you can see these numbers for what they truly are: simply really great deals!

So, There’s No Catch?

No catch. Many people get spooked by our amazing deals and opt for higher resort prices rather than risk dealing with a small business they’re not familiar with. This is a valid concern, and ultimately why we don’t recommend travelers utilize those timeshares posted on Craigslist you sometimes see…yikes!

That is precisely what we are here for: to connect you to the lowest prices while offering the protection you desire. When you browse our rentals, look for those marked verified & protected for an additional layer of security and peace-of-mind. Those can be booked online quickly and we protect your funds. No muss, no fuss.

…Not Even a Tour?

We are painfully aware that most people associate timeshare with salesmen and lofty promises. We completely understand you being wary of a tour pitch around the corner…as it is often required to get timeshare stays at such low rates.This is absolutely NOT how we do business here at RedWeek.

We are quite literally here to connect owners to renters, and renters to owners. That’s it. No catches, no hooks, NO TOURS.

Now, with all of these benefits laid out clearly on the table, it is important to acknowledge that there are some sites out there that are riskier to use than others. That’s where we come in. RedWeek is the most trusted online timeshare community, which basically means we have your back—whether you’re a long-time owner or a new member just looking to rent occasionally.

When you book through RedWeek, you can feel good about:

  • Avoiding pesky markup fees
  • Helping a timeshare owner and their family cover maintenance fees
