Consider a Timeshare
While the word "timeshare" can conjure visions of agonizing presentations and, like, 364 blackout days a year, they're making a comeback thanks to more flexible days and thousands of affiliate properties to choose from. In fact, 60 percent of new timeshare owners are Millennials and Gen X'ers, says Bree Sposato, travel trend expert for Wyndham Destinations, which just added locations in St. Thomas and Puerto Rico to their portfolio of 220 destinations.
"Timeshares are the original Airbnb, but with more amenities and trustworthy service from hospitality brands that manage the resorts," notes Sposato, adding that they're a great options for families or large groups. "Units often have multiple rooms and many of the comforts of home, like washer/dryers and kitchens."
And the best part? You don't have to be an owner to stay there; many brands let you book a "try on" vacation without investing. But Sposato does offer a pretty good argument for investing, saying, "Nearly a third of Americans said that lack of privacy for 'sexy time' makes their vacation less enjoyable. But according to the American Resort Development Association, 71 percent of timeshare owners claim to have more sex with their partner while on vacation!"
