Annual or Bi-Annual?
Most Timeshares are also sold in Annual or Biennial usage. What does this mean to you? Annual means you will get to use the timeshare resort each year on the week you purchased. Biennial means you get the resort every other year. You will also hear the terms odd or even years. For example: if you purchase ownership for odd years for your timeshare, you would get years 2007, 2009, 2011?. If you buy an even-years ownership, you get 2006, 2008, 2010?.
You might be asking, "Why I would want a Biennial ownership?" Typically, Biennial owners will pay half of what the Annual timeshare is valued at, since their usage is only once every other year-Making it a much more affordable option. The other advantage of buying Biennial is that you might not vacation every year. Or you might want to own 2 different resorts-one during Even years and one during Odd Years
