Instead of using a timeshare-exchange company, timeshare owners may benefit from an owner to owner exchange. The most obvious reason that owner to owner timeshare exchanges are wise choices is due to massive savings. Timeshare-exchange companies are expensive, whereas owner to owner exchanges are free or close to free. In addition, owner to owner timeshare exchange eliminates the middle man, or the timeshare-exchange company. Owners are able to converse with one another, freely asking questions about other resorts and the area around the destination in question. With this type of conversation, timeshare owners generally feel more confident with their exchanges.
