Does a Wheelchair Accessible Timeshare Make Sense for You?
Physically challenged travelers have an increasing number of leisure travel options. These include a growing choice of timeshare resorts in beautiful vacation destinations that cater to wheelchair travelers.
While U.S. resorts are required by law to provide at least one wheelchair accessible timeshare, many offer a varied and appealing selection of vacation ownership accommodations that meet the needs of disabled travelers.
Questions to Consider
If you travel frequently, you may want to consider whether purchasing a wheelchair accessible timeshare is right for you. Here are a few questions to ask yourself:
For some, owning a timeshare can be a highly attractive, enjoyable way to vacation. Through vacation ownership, you purchase your time now and hedge against the rising costs of hotels. Another benefit is that you're usually able to visit new, exciting destinations by trading your vacation week with others in the resort’s vacation exchange network.
Tips Before Making a Timeshare Purchase
If you think a wheelchair accessible timeshare may be a viable option for your vacation enjoyment, here are some additional tips to consider before you buy or rent your timeshare — or anytime you travel.
It is important to note that vacation resorts outside of the U.S. are not mandated by law to offer wheelchair accessible lodging.
Yet, many quality timeshare properties around the world recognize the importance of serving physically challenged travelers and offer special accommodations, such as timeshare resorts around the mountains of Argentina that cater to vacationers who use wheelchairs.
Therefore, always do your homework before planning to rent or purchase a vacation timeshare.
