There are nearly 10 million households who own a timeshare creating nearly $100 billion in economic output. This industry is no small potatoes and with travel opening back up again people are wanting to go and chill out for some vacation time. And according to the American Resort Development Association or ARDA, timeshare properties cost around $19,000 to purchase on average. The annual maintenance fee of timeshares are around $700 – $1,000, for a total of $19,700 – $20,000 for most people to get started with owning a timeshare. There are many people who want to get out of their timeshares after making this large investment, which is kind of crazy if you think about it. They don’t understand all of the benefits of owning a timeshare.
In this article, I want to discuss something that most people never thing about when it comes to owning a timeshare and that is creating your own part-time travel business. Sure, there are people who buy properties to rent them out on Airbnb, VRBO, etc., but that’s a huge upfront investment and requires way more involvement than I care to do part-time. We’ve rented those properties before and I always feel like I’m borrowing my friends place with their laundry list of things I have to do to take care of the place that I’m paying $200 or $300 a night for. Call me spoiled and a snob, but I want clean towels and someone coming in and making my bed if I’m spending that kind of money.
The Travel Business
We’ve already discovered that the timeshare industry creates $100 billion in annual output and many people are frustrated with owning a timeshare. Why not take advantage of a marketplace that is massive and growing at about 7% per year. What if you could be an agent for a travel business and use your timeshare as a marketing expense, while still being able to use your timeshare? How cool would that be? Imagine, if you could earn enough money each year promoting your personal traveling through timeshare adventures to pay for your maintenance fees and over time even pay for your timeshare.
Doesn’t that sound like a better option than what most of the 10 million timeshare owners are doing? I thought so, which is why I created this blog. I found a travel company that combines a travel club, skin care products from the Dead Sea and cutting edge non-gmo, vegan nutritional products to build a part-time income in the travel business. Most people when they travel are hanging out in the Sun and concerned about the damaging effects on their skin. My wife and I enjoy running marathons and we are out in the Sun on a daily basis training and running for hours in the elements. It only makes sense to take care of your skin that is the largest organ in your body. If you own a timeshare it’s a great way to turn your travel expenses into a business venture. Compared to other businesses the annual cost of ownership is extremely low.
The best type of businesses are those that require very little initial and monthly expense. I own a car dealership and the costs of being in business are thousands of dollars a month with the risk of losing money as well. This type of business is based on referral marketing, so the barrier of entry is low. It’s less than a few hundred dollars to get started and you just have to purchase the travel club for as little as $50 a month, about $600 a year and some additional products from the company each month. If you do that, you can meet one of the qualifications for commissions with the company by simply promoting the travel club along with the other products the company has to offer.
Some people may think that’s a big expense for a part-time business. It’s not. It is nothing compared to the tens of thousands of dollars you would have to invest in buying a house, apartment or condo to rent out with VRBO or Airbnb. It’s also nothing for a timeshare owner like myself and my wife when you consider the investment people have made in owning a timeshare, but are not taking advantage of being in the travel business to leverage their investment. We deposit our timeshares into a timeshare exchange almost every year and have traveled numerous places for a fraction of the cost of what others are paying. I’ll discuss this strategy in more detail in another article, but the point is that millions of people would love to know how they can leverage their timeshares like we do. Why not get paid for showing them how?
