Columbus, OH (December 13, 2010) — ResortGems.com has launched a new online service that enables consumers to rent timeshare properties directly from owners for discounts that range from 30 to 50%. Formerly known as Resort Rentals by Owner (RRBO.com), the new site incorporates thousands of other resort properties, while featuring the “gems” that are available from timeshare owners.
According to co-founder and CEO Bob Kington, “People looking for a vacation resort want to have a choice of high quality resorts from brands they can trust like Marriott, Wyndham, Hilton and Disney, but they also want the best price available. ResortGems.com offers rentals at all of these resorts, and has over 5,000 listings offered by timeshare owners who aren’t using them. These owners list their rentals at prices that are dramatically lower than the resorts themselves or online travel sites like Orbitz and Expedia.”
ResortGems.com operates an online marketplace for vacation resorts, with amazing deals. Thousands of individual timeshare owners list their properties for rent, usually at prices 30-50% less than standard rates. A traveler visits ResortGems.com where they can view more than 750 resorts all over North America – including Marriott, Wyndham. Hilton and Disney, find the timeshare rental unit they want, and rent it immediately.
ResortGems.com acts as the marketplace intermediary and when a unit is booked, confirms the rental with the traveler and pays the owner – taking a small fee to guarantee the payment, handle the booking, and eliminate risks of non-payment. There are currently over 5000 timeshare units available for rent on ResortGems.com with new listings being added daily.
