As 2017 unfolds and is well underway, greater challenges and renewed goals lie ahead for the vacation club and timeshare industry. The aim for 2017 is sure to be greater client satisfaction and moving forward in terms of technology and travel expectations. Another consideration that may or may not affect the timeshare industry in 2017 are the changes in the United States political administration which could affect the timeshare industry at large.
Let’s take a look at what’s in store for timeshare in 2017
Most timeshare companies are now expanding their communication methods with members and that includes tapping the potentials of social media and the Internet. Social networks, blogs, and email communications enable timeshare companies to maintain healthy relationships with clients. Social media is also a great way to keep in touch with your home resort while you are back home, helping members to plan their vacations.
The Luxury market
In the past, the vacation ownership market mainly focused on providing mid-range hospitality and accommodations, keeping the product affordable for most salaries. While this market continues to thrive, some of the top timeshare providers are moving towards expanding into the luxury market. Many memberships are beginning to offer flexibility that provides members with the option of accessing luxury products through borrowing and banking points. 2017 is seeing a shift towards luxury.
More Meaningful Experience
2017 is sure to continue the trend towards vacations that provide meaningful experiences and bucket list encounters. Timeshare members want more than accommodations, they want experiences and the best timeshare companies are offering just that. This trend is expected to continue throughout 2017 and beyond as more people want vacations that can provide inner and physical transformation, rejuvenation, and self-realization.
Timeshare and US Politics in 2017
Questions and doubts still remain as to how the recent political changes in the United States will affect the direction of the timeshare industry and other tourist related businesses. There might be key policies that will leave either a positive or negative impact on timeshare markets.
