Your Guide To The Top Timeshare Companies

February 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 194

Finding The Top Timeshare Companies

Timeshares have been around for decades, but not everyone is aware of how they can take advantage of vacations with the top timeshare companies. Many people consider them great investments, as they can make for an amazing vacation that will be there the rest of your life. They're also typically much more comfortable than that of your average hotel. However, financially, timeshares are not the best investment out there, due to their nasty tendency to depreciate between 30 and 50% in value after purchase. That being said, a timeshare isn't for everyone. But if you have decided that you definitely want to purchase a timeshare, you'll want to know who the top timeshare companies are.

RCI And Interval International

Resort Condominium International is currently the world's largest timeshare company. Across more than 100 countries, they have almost 4,000 resorts, and over 3 million members. Since its opening in 1974, it has offered patrons dream vacations all over the world. Running in second on size and expansiveness is Interval International, a company whose membership amounts to an estimated 2 million, and spans a total 2,500 resorts in over 75 countries. Interval International provides features like discounted services, guests certificates, and getaway packages. When members subscribe to their Gold Membership, they can reap even more benefits.

The Hyatt And Shell Clubs

Not all of the top timeshare companies need to have thousands of resorts. The Hyatt Vacation Club and the Shell Vacations Club come in at 15 and 23 resorts, respectively, and have nothing but a history of customer satisfaction between the two of them. Shell has been recognized over 100 times with awards for its excellence. The Hyatt, due to its affiliation with Interval International, allows its clients access to 2,400 more resorts through their membership. They are both committed to making sure their customers have the highest quality experience possible, no matter where they decide to vacation at.

The Benefit Of Exchange Programs

The great part about owning a vacation home with the top timeshare companies is the exchange factor that comes along with your membership. When you sign up with these companies, you are enrolled into their exchange program. This program allows you to change the location of your timeshare to another location included within the resort's system. This means that because of the expansive nature of some of the larger companies, with the exchange program, you could see different countries all over the world, one vacation at a time. Planning in advance will increase your chance of getting the location/style of room you want, and remember, exchanges are not upgrades. The accommodations available to you must be similar to the last ones you had.
