Vacation Planning

It is the time of year when everyone is planning their vacations. It is supposed to be an exciting time and a relaxing time. My husband and I bought a time share the year after we were married. We knew that we liked to go on vacations and thought that it would be nice to go different places and not have to worry about coming up with money for rooms and such all at one time.

This should be a great way to vacation, right? Well, so far for us, 5 years, it has been nothing but a headache. Every year that we have used our timeshare to book our vacation we have had some sort of problem. Either the reservation was not there, it was the wrong reservation, or most recently, we can't get a room! We have this "agent" that is supposed to be there to book our vacations for us so we don't have to deal with all that. Well, this year we relied on her to book our room. When we kept getting the run around, I called her. I finally got a response back that we should go ahead and book our own room before it was too late. Well, guess what, it was already too late!

I am really starting to dislike this whole timeshare idea more and more! What is the point of having it if you can't successfully use it?

  1. wow, yes the idea is a great one, but that does sound like a hassle! May need to go back to putting it in a savings account and being your own broker lol( or find a new broker). Sorry, hopefully next year will be better!!
