Timeshares are redefining leisure and business travel and we are pleased to be at the forefront of this new and exciting time in the travel industry.
Reno, NV (PRWEB) October 15, 2008
Vacation membership organization Royal Palm Vacations is celebrating its 11th anniversary as a leader in the timeshare industry. Since 1997, Royal Palm has built strong family ties with its members. Currently with over 18,000 members, they have facilitated many exotic vacations around the globe for couples and families.
"We are delighted to see another year of great vacations and accommodations for our members," commented Amanda Johnson, Assistant Manager of Royal Palm Vacations. "Timeshares are redefining leisure and business travel and we are pleased to be at the forefront of this new and exciting time in the travel industry."
Timeshare, or vacation ownership, is a fast growing travel industry. In 2005, the total financial impact to the American economy was in excess of $90 billion. The industry provides both full and part time employment to over 500,000 people. As of January 2007, over 4.4 million households in the United States had interest in one or more timeshares, a 7% increase from the year before.
Even the profile of timeshare participants is becoming more diverse as these options become more available to ordinary people. Baby boomers and empty nesters lead in vacation ownership. In the last 12 months, 17% of buyers were single and nearly 25% of all participants have children under the age of 18.
In a timeshare, customers can tailor their vacation to whatever suits their lifestyle. A 2006 survey conducted by the American Resort Development Association (ARDA) indicated that 61% of recent buyers said attractions and entertainment were the characteristics they were looking for in a particular location. Other characteristics important to travelers include proximity to beaches, mountains, lakes and the availability of golf, history, culture, gambling and gaming.
"Royal Palm Vacations gladly assists those looking for cost effective and varied vacation options," Johnson stated. "We welcome people from all backgrounds looking to broaden their travel experiences."
