February 2018

Six timeshare users give their views on timeshare, and how things add up.

This month we continue our dialogues with timeshare users, to know more about what they find interesting and beneficial about timeshare holidays. While the timeshare concept is gaining in awareness, many potential customers and holiday seekers are not aware of long-term benefits.  The true value on return comes year after year for a long, long time.

One of the things we aim to do via this website and our social media activity is explain and illustrate the benefits of choosing a timeshare plan with a member resort on the AIRDA network. And as you will see, there are definite advantages in dealing with a company in the organized sector.
