When planning a get away vacation, the expenses can really start to add up and add up quickly! Between the travel costs, the food, the hotel and the entertainment, it can all become a bit overwhelming.

What if, there were a way to help cut those costs without having to jump through hoops? Keep reading to see just what a great solution to all those worries this giveaway can be!

A little-known alternative to renting a hotel is to rent a timeshare. Did you know that you can rent a timeshare for up to 50% less than hotel rooms? When timeshare owners can't use their available weeks they rent their timeshare out. This is a win-win situation for everyone involved because the owner makes a profit and the renter saves money. is an online timeshare marketplace that connects timeshare owners with potential renters and buyers. 

From the website:
Now a leader in the secondary marketplace, RedWeek is the largest, most reputable online timeshare marketplace with more than 1.5 million registered users and an A+ Better Business Bureau rating. Timeshare owners and travelers alike come to RedWeek to read our exclusive resort ratings and reviews, access our detailed resort information, and of course browse the thousands of timeshare rental and resale postings or advertise their own timeshare for rent or sale.There are many ways in which renting a timeshare can preferable to renting a hotel besides the savings. Below you can see an example of the spaciousness available in a timeshare. No more cramped hotel rooms with no privacy. Timeshares also come with fully equipped kitchens. You can save potentially hundreds of dollars making your own meals rather than eating out three times a day. Eating out with small children can be quite the ordeal, and finding them something healthy to eat just compounds the problem. We all like to eat out on occasion, but being able to buy and cook your own food on your schedule can be very convenient. How many times have you had to wake up early and get everyone dressed just to go out and get breakfast?

Alyssa and her husband are planning a trip to Las Vegas this fall. They used to live there and  have lots of friends and family that they haven't seen in almost three years. They have been searching for a good place to stay because they are uncomfortable imposing on friends for an extended period of time. One timeshare they looked at was Tahiti Village. One of the biggest benefits to renting a timeshare in Las Vegas is you don't have to walk your children through a smoke-filled casino to get anywhere. Even without a casino there is a great list of amenities.

A great added benefit,  the nearby amenities are already listed. Usually, you can find a list when you get to your hotel room, but knowing beforehand is very helpful, especially if you plan on doing a lot of walking. Timeshares are incredibly family-friendly. Many not only have pools, but have hot tubs, whirlpools, lazy rivers, kiddie pools, and water pads. Arts and crafts classes are common, as are community BBQs and ice cream socials.

Visit to browse timeshare locations and amenities. You can browse by location or attraction including kid friendly and pet friendly options. With the purchase of a yearly membership you can contact owners to get started on your budget vacation!
