Why buy a timeshare when you can go on Airbnb and rent fabulous condos on the beach for a fraction of the price?

my parents liked it because it was like visiting family in a way once they started going for a couple of years

they aren't big travelers though

my mom mostly traveled for work in US and my dad only traveled for family stuff

Yeah, we have a Westgate resort and just got back from Orlando.  It was very nice, but yeah...we wouldn't do it again if we could do it over again.  They're also a pain to get rid of. 

Which one do you guys have?
We have the Lakes one....I've stayed at the Villas too. 

The Villas.  We watched the fireworks at all the parks from the lake.  It was lovely. Heart

Yeah between airbnb and credit card churning, you can go anywhere in the world and have great accommodations for little to no money.

A timeshare is not worth it at all.

oh yeah, I forgot about that option.  I saw a documentary called The Queen of Versailles about Westgate Resorts timeshare...they were shady and had places all over.

How often do you guys use them?


I saw about the last 30 minutes of that and wanted to see the whole thing. I meant to look for it online. It looked interesting

it was interesting...the wife was truly delusional and the husband was just piling on the debt to uphold a lifestyle that was crashing down.  their house was a mess.  the maid lived in the dollhouse in the backyard. Confused

it's on Hulu, but i'm not sure if it's free.





if that's the documentary I think it is...is that the woman who dogs were sh*tting all over the house?  I felt bad for the nanny.  She didn't get a break.  the lil kids sleeping in her bed n'sh*t.

IMO...a timeshare is not worth it in the 2014. Maybe in the 90's before innernets.  These days you got too many websites and too many ways to get a better deal on your vacay.  Back in the day...you had to go thru a travel agency and who knew if you were getting a good deal or nah?  Nothing to compare it to really.  These days you can do the research and competitive shop.

this.  I didn't do airbnb but it was the same concept.  I enjoyed that more than a hotel (and I love hotels)  and it was way cheaper.
