Anatole France once said, "Wandering re-establishes the original harmony which once existed between man and the universe." Not only do his words speak a breadth of truth about the relaxing benefits of frequent vacations, they hint at the idea that traveling to unique and remote locations can help travelers learn something about themselves and their relationship with the rest of the world. The beauty, peace and solitude of annual or biennial vacations to the Maldives perfectly exemplifies these notions.
Whether you're looking to return to the Maldives again and again, or you'd like to find harmony exploring as many corners of our diverse earth as possible, a timeshare can secure a lifetime of affordable lodging, wherever you should end up. Timeshares are a convenient and cost-effective alternative to renting a hotel room every time you return, and, because there are so many owners pitching in, they tend to be larger and better equipped than other lodging options.
You might be wondering how a timeshare in one location can take you all over the world. International corporations like vacation clubs and exchange companies make it possible for owners of timeshare to trade their time at their "home resort" (in this case the Maldives timeshare that is deeded or contracted to them) for time anywhere within their respective networks. Examples of vacation clubs include Marriott, Bluegreen and Hilton Grand Vacations Club, while the most expansive exchange companies are RCI (with more than 3,700 resorts to choose from) and Interval International (with nearly 2,000 in-network resorts.) These organizations differ in their methods (something you will want to research carefully before deciding which is right for you) but the main goal is to allow owners to travel all over the world for the same rate as they'd pay to stay in their Maldives every year.
If you are interested in purchasing a timeshare so that you may return to the Maldives (and any other location on your list) annually or biennially, consider buying your timeshare on the online resale market. Timeshare resales allow owners to save thousands on their vacation property. That's because resorts generally sell timeshare at inflated pricing to cover marketing costs and salesman's commissions. When you buy resale, on the other hand, you're paying only for the property.
Not yet ready to buy timeshare? Consider a timeshare rental. There are timeshares for rent anywhere they're for sale, but you can generally find the best deals on the resale market.
