A major market trend among global travellers is the unique concept of owning a place to vacation rather than renting one.
Understanding the Vacation Ownership Industry
In the 1970s and 1980s, Vacation Ownerships, or timeshares, were built around the world but it wasn’t until the 1990s that people truly began to recognise Vacation Ownerships as a viable long-term vacation option, particularly in North America and Europe. Nowadays, millions of families enjoy the concept of securing their luxury vacations and have embraced the idea that buying a Vacation Ownership programme ensures they have guaranteed stays at quality resorts around the world.
Before becoming an Owner, it’s important to have a clear understanding of how the industry and the Vacation Ownership concept works.
As the number of “power players” who enter the industry continues to rise, the demand for Vacation Ownerships have increased and therefore the occupancy rates have, too. Vacation Ownership purchases are heavily reliant on location and season, which are often the driving factors behind the fierce competition between major brands. This creates more options for Owners and richer experiences and properties to enjoy for frequent travelers.
To encourage people to buy Vacation Ownerships, companies offer noteworthy incentives: enhanced buyer’s protection, a dramatic increase in eco-friendly Vacation Ownership resorts for the green traveller, the potential savings from hotel rentals, and the security of having luxury holidays now and in the future.
Vacation Ownership trends are also based on the overall image of the available properties. Popular brands have come together and have invested greatly in resources that increase the positive image, services and rewards of Vacation Clubs. They have also taken time to educate the public and emphasise the benefits of purchasing a Vacation Ownership programme.
Instead of booking accommodations for a one-time stay, the true value of Vacation Ownerships comes from providing Owners with authentic travel experiences and giving them the freedom to choose accommodations that they can return to again and again.
Anantara Vacation Club, Asia’s leading Vacation Ownership programme, prides itself on offering its Owners unparalleled personalised experiences, taking every guest’s preferences and needs into consideration. When staying at Anantara Vacation Club Resorts, Owners enjoy the sense of coming home and staying in resorts where they are welcomed by staff that anticipate their every need, making for a truly seamless vacation experience.
Additionally, Anantara Vacation Club Owners feel secure that their Ownership will provide them with incredible travel opportunities for years to come and protect them against inflation, since the total number of Club Points for stays at each Club Resort accommodation can never be increased. Owners can also save their Club Points from the previous year and borrow from the coming year, allowing them the flexibility of using three years’ worth of points in the current year – incredible benefits of Vacation Ownership!
For those who appreciate experiencing the world in custom comfort and style, there’s no better way to travel and book an accommodation than through a Vacation Ownership.
