a strong desire to travel, seek adventure, explore the world and experience every cultural possibility.

As vacationers become more adventurous and experience-driven, the best timeshare programs can give world travelers exclusive deals to see the most sought-after destinations. Every corner of the earth could be within reach. Timeshare vacation clubs and programs bridge the gap between oceans of new explorations. Exchange programs like Interval International (II) or Resort Condominiums International (RCI) make travel for timeshare owners easy and effortless.

Why timeshare?

Timeshares and vacation clubs are becoming more flexible than ever. Owners and club members can buy into points systems rather than a traditional fixed week and one resort. Vacationing to the same place at the same time every year is no longer typical for new timeshare owners. Using allotted annual points to redeem vacations is a growing trend that brings the far-ends of the world within reach.

According to a 2018 study from AARP, 75% of vacation planners already decided on the next country they want to visit. 47% of travelers from that study are excited to get away from their everyday routines in unique destinations elsewhere. It has been proven that vacationing makes for healthier, happier people. Maybe wanderlust is a natural side-effect of our desire to get out of the box every once in a while?

wanderlust-world-travelersThe Baby Boomer generation wants to check vacation spots off their bucket list while the younger generation of Millennials travels abroad for many other reasons. Either way, joining a timeshare vacation club can save money while giving members of all ages more access to worldwide destinations.

Are you feeling the buzz? Cure your wanderlust and receive exclusive benefits by using luxurious timeshare vacation clubs around the world.
