Rising worldwide timeshare maintenance fees are seeing UK timeshare owners spending an average of £500 a year before they’ve even booked flights to their destination. Over the years, these fees begin to add up making timeshares more of a burden than a blessing for owners.
So are timeshare fees really worth it?
The average timeshare owner is spending £500 a year on fees not including flights, food or spending money. This amount alone could easily fund a long weekend on the beautiful Canary Island of Tenerife. For example, an all-inclusive, four-star long weekend for two people (flights, accommodation, food and drinks), can be booked for less than £400 through holiday planning experts Cheap Holidays Tenerife, with over £100 left to spend!
It seems that timeshare owners are paying far more for their week’s usage than they would normally spend on a holiday.
Marketing Director, Jodi Beard, says:
“Timeshare owners are spending thousands of pounds in costs over a period of years and all too often aren’t getting their money’s worth. Rising maintenance costs associated with timeshares are driving owners to exit as they realise they could book their own holiday for less and enjoy the flexibility to travel to a wide variety of destinations. In fact, 50 years’ worth of timeshare costs could fund two around the world trips.”
Better value holidays are just one of many luxuries timeshare owners could treat themselves to if they no longer had to think about timeshare maintenance costs. Just one year’s fees could buy a relaxing spa weekend, feed the family or buy ten £50 tanks of petrol.
