I have created a set of criteria that help me have successful vacation. I have categorized them into three groups... Freedom, Responsibility, and timeshares. By freedom, I mean that you have the ability to plan for a flexible vacation, but you still have to define what that means.... How long is your trip, flying or driving, Where are you going (What is your bucket list).

But you also need to be responsible to get and better use of your timeshares. You need to learn all the features as they are regularly updated. And you can learn about new options. The more work you put in the best your vacations become.

Lastly, you need to leverage your planning skills. Booking a timeshare or any successful vacation requires planning. Learn about the hotel chain (most timeshares are related to a hotel) associated to your timeshare... Plus much more in the video.
