When I signed up for Vida I was told that Vida "wasn't like other timeshares." If I couldn't use my week, I didn't have to pay for it and they would rent it for me for a small fee. That was an outright lie.
Not only do they not rent out your week for or from you, but you have to pay the annual maintenance fee in order to do that. "Concierge services" was also played up. Those services are usually not cheaper than anything else you can find. I was in the military at the time and thought this was a great thing.
What a waste of money. I was also given Vida weeks that I could use even on short-notice.
What they don't tell you is that you have to belong to some other company (paying those membership fees, too) in order to use them. Also, most of the time they are not even worth using because you can find cheaper places to stay at rather than use those "weeks" that are supposed to be such a bonus.
