You’ll probably still reach a wide audience without racking up fees from multiple internet sites. And if you are able to get a newspaper that doesn’t charge for ads, even better. Posting in travel forums is in fact a cheaper way to advertise your timeshare as you’ll be surrounded by potential renters and you might even get some good advice.
Advertising your timeshare in as many places as possible increases your chances of getting more renter options, and of course, this increases your chances of making good profit from your timeshare.
