A recent survey by Bloomberg indicates the timeshare industry is on the upswing. In fact, 8 out of 10 owners are in it for the long haul. The average Marriott Vacations customer reports a net worth of $1.5 million. That’s a pretty hefty sum for the uninitiated. So, how can you wring a return on your buck? Well, the timeshare industry has a number of answers to that question.
Timeshares have their drawbacks, the most obvious being the high price tag. However, in the past few years, companies have come up with solutions to the problem, namely, resale companies. Moreover, in an inflationary environment, the value proposition of timeshares is redeemed. Besides, timeshares offer all-year round employment opportunities to their owners.
Another way to enlighten your travel needs is to check out the Timeshare Users Group website. While TUG does not actually sell timeshares, it has some great tips and advice for your buck. Plus, it was the first of its kind on the web. Fortunately, the company also has a mobile app that lets you chat and shop with other timeshare lovers from anywhere in the world. And, like all smart businesses, it takes its customers’ well-being seriously. It even offers a rewards program to encourage lapsed members to redeem their memberships. If you’re looking to score a vacation in the Caribbean, the Gulf of Mexico or somewhere else in between, then this is the company to speak to.
TUG isn’t the only timeshare website to be found on the web. Besides, it’s been around for over 29 years, so its staff has been through it all. As for a slew of timeshare-centric articles and videos, you’re likely to find one to suit your fancy. For instance, a recent article penned by the company’s VP of sales and marketing, Mike Yoneis, points out that TUG is home to some of the most seasoned professionals in the business. Indeed, the aforementioned VP of sales and marketing, Michael Yoneis, possesses more than 20 years of experience in the travel and tourism industry.
Lastly, the newest member of the family, the Fleetwood Vacation Club, has announced a new product that will offer timeshare owners access to top of the line motor coaches. Additionally, the company has acquired the Franklin Printing building in the French Quarter, which is adjacent to the timeshare’s locale. With this savvy acquisition comes a 119 unit timeshare, Fairfield New Orleans at La Belle Maison.
