We have a timeshare. Buying the timeshare was not one of the smartest things we’ve ever done, but I don’t regret it. It made our week long trip to England financially feasible. We’ve had some great weekends in the Vancouver and Victoria, BC areas because of it. Honestly, no regrets, even when I pay the dues.
But sometimes we need to remember how to say No. Timeshares give away free trips if you just attend a presentation because its not that hard to get people to say Yes. Remember, when you need to say No, say it, and no regrets.
