Timeshare Owner’s Next Vacation 

Timeshare owners know the true value of their vacations – a lifetime of priceless memories! And today’s timeshare owners are planning to spend even more time and money on their future vacations.

In fact, 86% of timeshare owners plan to spend as much or more time on their vacations and 84% plan to spend just as much or more money on those vacations, according to the 2018 Owners Study, conducted by Leger for the ARDA International Foundation (AIF).

Here's a few highlights from the study that gives a glimpse into the next vacation plans of today's timeshare owners:

  • A majority (71%) of all owners plan on vacationing with their spouse, partner or significant other, followed by those bringing children under age 18 (32%).
  • Nearly half (47%) of timeshare owners would like help with the ‘booking’ aspects of vacation planning, particularly booking reservations, flights, and even car rentals.
  • Seventy-nine percent will mostly likely take their next timeshare vacation in the United States.
  • Twenty-six percent of owners plan to go to Florida for their next vacation, making it the most popular U.S. destination.
  • When traveling out of the country, 7% of owners plan to go to The Caribbean, followed by Mexico (6%) and Canada (3%).
  • Owners will be traveling over 1,000 miles one way to their next vacation destination in the U.S. and nearly twice as far if going outside of the U.S.
  • Forty-two percent plan to vacation at their home resort by using their weeks, and 20 percent plan to vacation at their home resort or vacation club by using points.
  • Among those going on vacation in 2018, May, June and July looked to be the most popular months to take their next timeshare vacation.

With guaranteed vacations each and every year, timeshare owners are looking to increase their invaluable time with family.
