Timeshare Owners' Booking Preference
According to a recent wave of the Consumer Optimism Barometer (formerly the Back-to-Normal Barometer) conducted in late March 2023, timeshare owners are booking their vacations farther out compared to last year. Nearly half of the timeshare owners (48%) reported booking farther out from their vacation compared to last year. A little more than a quarter of owners (26%) reported booking closer to or about the same time from their vacation respectively. In comparison, 33% of all active travelers reported booking farther out, 24% reported closer to and 43% reported about the same time from their vacation.
