Leisure Getaways Incorporated Caters to Lovers of Travel

Perpetual vacationers, retirees, virtually anyone who loves to travel, can benefit greatly from ownership in timeshares. With multiple vacation ownerships, owners can spend the majority of the year doing what they love more than anything: traveling and experiencing new things. There are thousands of timeshare owners in the United States, despite the recession. According to the American Resort Development Association, a trade organization which represents the timeshare industry, there were 1,548 timeshare resorts in the United States in 2011, with a total of 194,200 units. Of these, Leisure Getaways Incorporated is proud to be one of the best.

Timeshare owners pay a lump sum upfront to purchase, and annual fees to cover maintenance costs. The usual duration is a one-week interval once a year, but the time frame can be shorter or longer depending on the contract. Average sales prices for one-week timeshares are $19,000 with an average maintenance fee of $660. Leisure Getaways Incorporated covers all information regarding its vacation ownerships through its knowledgeable sales representatives, who educate and inform while promoting their exciting product.

Vacation ownership operates on a points system, which allows more flexibility in time and location of travel. RCI.com, a vacation exchange network, assists Leisure Getaways Incorporated owners to use points at any time during the calendar year, and even to use points for cruise or camping options. Points can be used from previous years, or can be borrowed from the year ahead. Points can also be used for hotel stays at some of the finest venues.

Leisure Getaways Incorporated Sells Freedom from Worry

Vacation owner points programs can be complicated, so Leisure Getaways Incorporated representatives explain resort-based points programs, how they are owned, how they may be used, and how points can give the owner greater flexibility in vacation selections.

Leisure Getaways Incorporated’s patient and knowledgeable representatives can explain the size of vacation units, varying from studios to three and four bedroom spaces. Larger units often have fully equipped kitchens, dining areas, dishwashers and televisions, with washers and dryers either in house or readily available. Kitchens generally come equipped with sufficient tableware for the specified accommodations of the unit. The availability and popularity of a unit is proportional to its location, as beach resorts have high demand and units of all size are desirable whereas units at inland resorts may be much more available as they are not so sought after.

Timeshare sales approaches for appealing to a buyer often include a complimentary stay at a vacation resort, along with gift incentives. Sales representatives may offer tickets to entertainments, complimentary gambling chips for a resort which offers legalized gambling, and other activity tickets or coupons for use at or near the resort. Prospective buyers are often assigned to a tour guide who is also a real estate agent and attend a presentation, where they will learn about the resort or resorts in question through the use of videos and a knowledgeable speaker. Leisure Getaways Incorporated presents its full package of resorts and amenities for those prospective vacation owners who want to bring true leisure and freedom from worry to their holidays.

Leisure Getaways Incorporated Connected to RCI Vacation Bookings

With the point systems used today, timeshare owners may assign their vacation ownership points for exchanges of air travel tickets, hotels, cruises, or amusement park admissions. Owners may rent part of their earned points and use the rest to get a larger unit, or more vacation time, or a better location for their vacations. Points may be saved over time, in some cases. The superior contracts of Leisure Getaways Incorporated and the knowledgeable representatives can answer these and other questions about the parameters of the modern RCI timeshare contract.

Very popular in timeshare purchases today is exchanging time to stay at one of thousands of other resorts across the world. RCI, owners of RCI Vacation Bookings and originator of Leisure Getaways Incorporated, is one of the largest exchange agencies, along with Interval International. These two exchange agencies have over 7,000 resorts, and through resort affiliate programs owners can look forward to a myriad of exchange choices. Owners may be able to exchange weeks or points through independent agencies, or may be able to arrange a direct exchange by finding an owner with the desired destination and weeks which both want. Internet bulletin boards can help timeshare owners meet others to perform exchanges.

Exchangeable vacation ownerships of those who have committed to timeshares are easily exchanged, no matter what resort sites they are connected to, but different ownerships have different amounts of trading power. Vacation ownerships connected to resorts in Hawaii or Southern California are much in demand, and easy to exchange for other vacation times in other parts of the world.

Home Sharing Leads to Leisure Getaways Incorporated

Vacation home sharing became all the rage after World War II in Britain. Home sharing was a kind of vacation system which would enable families to vacation in much finer surroundings than they could afford on their own. Also known as holiday home sharing, the concept began with four families, all European or at least living in adjoining countries, purchasing a property together. Each family had the use of the property for one of the four seasons of the year, on a rotating basis. Ideally, the original concept involved families who were closely related, so they could trust one another to share the vacation home equally and participate in upkeep and expenses. Leisure Getaways Incorporated offers a more sophisticated, but similar, vacation ownership ideal today, with many more amenities and options.

It was a factor of the holiday home share arrangement that the vacation home was vacant for long periods of time, as few families can afford to vacation for an entire season. Creative British entrepreneurs and property brokers got the idea to divide resort rooms into a 1/50th ownership arrangement, with two weeks left free each year for repair and improvements, and the charge of a maintenance fee to each owner. Voila! The concept of the timeshare was born in Europe, and within 10 years, the idea was working smoothly and ready for import to America, where Leisure Getaways Incorporated would eventually evolve the concept. Retaining the original concept, but drastically different in form, vacation ownership today is still a way for the vacationer to enjoy luxury for less.
