The New Face of Timeshare

Now the largest generation in the U.S., Millennials have different views on vacationing than previous generations. When they do take vacations, they want flexibility and a truly unique experience. Thankfully, Millennials grew up with the “sharing economy” in the digital age, and are one of the biggest users of it. For that reason, the concept of timeshare is not foreign to them, but their perception of it can be dependent on past experiences or cultural trends. Learn how to tailor your message and communication channels to reach millennials. And explore how minor product enhancements could give you a customer for a lifetime.
