Tips on How to Rent a Timeshare

Renting a timeshare is a great way to find out if you’re ready to be a home away from home owner already.

Try before you buy. Not sure if owning a timeshare is for you? Renting a timeshare is perfect for those who are looking for a solution that isn’t as permanent as buying a vacation home.

What are timeshare rentals?

Timeshare owners might not stay at their property every year. Most that decide not to, will list their property online for others to rent. Timeshare rentals are usually rented out for a week. If you want to stay there for three or four nights instead of all week, they might be more affordable than booking a traditional stay at a hotel.

Is renting a timeshare something for you? 

If you want to book your holiday several months beforehand, timeshare rentals might not be the best option for you. Property owners usually decide they want to visit their home away from home or not a month ahead. So if you’re someone who books last-minutes often, it is totally worth it to check out the availability of timeshare rentals on the island. During the high season, timeshares are less available. But if you’re someone who likes to travel during the off-season, timeshares are a great option for you. Good to know: the weather in Aruba is great year round. So don’t worry that you’ll lack sunshine when you’re travelling during the off-season.
