I have been to different timeshare presentations including RCI in Alberta. I would like to get some inputs about the various selling groups / organizations and you appreciation of them. Is is worth the money? Any advice ?
Also, buy your resale timeshares in places you actually like going on vacation. That way RCI & the other timeshare exchange organizations are mox nix -- you can vacation at your own timeshare without paying exchange fees, RCI dues, etc.
Or even if you do swap your timeshare week for somebody else's in some years, you're miles ahead if you are not absolutely dependent on swaps to get value & enjoyment out of your timeshare.

Rent to get a feel for different resorts, developers, activities, etc. Spend hours reading these boards. And stay away from the timeshare sales weasals.
T/S are easy to buy and hard to sell. Buy resale. And learn as much as you can before you buy a timeshare.
My sister and her husband are coming on a 6 day trip with me next month - I have reservations at 3 different resorts for those 6 nights. She is reading resort reviews online. She has visited 3 other resorts in the 18 months. She is, IMHO, still not ready to buy a resale timeshare yet or after this trip. Reasons include her blended family has two sets of weekend kids and her job has her traveling worldwide every 5-6 weeks. Good T/S vacations require planning 13-24 months in advance. She is still 15+ years from retirement.
