My Parents for years had Timeshare and were able to trade for many places around the world. It was part of RCI, which house thousands of places to trade to. They feel they got their money's worth, however the maintenance fees on their "Home" timeshare started escalating and escalating as the were doing renovations. It was turning out to be too expensive, so they ended up getting out of it. So be aware if the timeshare locks in Maintenance Fees or if they have the right to up them.
