I am working on getting our October Cabo trip put together. The past 3 years I have booked either through Expedia or Orbitz and ended up with some reasonable deals.
This year I thought I would try to rent someones timeshare. Since its the 1st time I have some questions (I tried searching in the old topics but couldn't find answers)
1. Can you negotiate the rental price on a unit that is posted (for instance on Redweek or VRBO) Or do you just decide if you want to pay the price they are asking. The reason I ask this is right now because airfare is over $500 pp from Mpls its more to buy air and rent someone's timeshare than it is to buy a package through one of the vacation websites. Thats crazy!
2. If we do end up renting a timeshare - are there questions you suggest I ask to make sure they are legitimate? I assume on those websites you can pay through paypal or through credit card so if something happened you could reject the charge?
3. Is there anyway to verify what you are actually getting when you rent from someone on those websites?
