Vacation Ownership (Timeshare) Market: Industry Analysis & Outlook (2017-2021)
The word "timeshare" has evolved over the years to include a wide variety of vacation products and plans. It is also known as "vacation ownership" "holiday ownership" and "interval ownership”. A timeshare is a property with a particular form of ownership or use rights. These properties are typically resort condominium units, in which multiple parties hold rights to use the property, and each individual is allotted a period of time (typically one week and almost always the same time every year) in which they may use the property.
There are many things that set a vacation timeshare resort apart from the typical hotel, but the main difference is the quality of the actual rooms available. Vacation timeshares are far more deluxe and tend to be apartment style accommodations ranging in size from studio units (with room for two), to three and four bedroom units. These larger units can usually accommodate large families comfortably. Units normally include fully equipped kitchens with a dining area, dishwasher, televisions, DVD players, etc.
