What would you pay, if you didn’t get this?
This is a good question to ask yourself. In the introduction, we went over what the average American spends annually on vacation. But maybe that wouldn’t apply to you. Maybe you have friends you can stay with in most places. Maybe you just don’t have time to travel often. Figure out what you’d pay to vacation each year, and then through your lifetime, without the timeshare. It should be significantly more than what the timeshare would cost you, to make purchasing a timeshare worth it.
