Luxury Holidays – Travel Agents, Timeshare Or Vacation Clubs.

Everybody loves holidays and as more money is being produced in the emerging markets then the travel industry will grow and grow. How do you best take advantage of this burgeoning holiday market? Well, there are a number of options available.

Travel Agents.

Travel agents have been around a long time and can cater your holiday requirements from flight only, hotel / condominiums, package holidays, car rentals- in fact, just about any holiday necessity you may have. Travel agents are charge based so they make their profit from the difference between the cost of the holiday charged to them and what they sell the holiday on to you for.


Timeshare dates back many years where companies purchased or built high quality holiday complexes and then sold weeks to the traveling public. These businesses mushroomed and timeshare became a main force in the industry. Their appeal increased as timeshare proprietors were able to join timeshare exchange clubs and swap their weeks at a complex in one country to a complex in different country. Timeshare developed a number of drawbacks. Initially they were expensive to join however the value of your timeshare dropped dramatically after your purchase making it difficult to sell your timeshare if you wanted to. As well with timeshare you bought weeks at different levels, red normally being the most expensive as this was for a week in hottest season.

Vacation Clubs.

Vacation clubs were introduced to give their members access to travel and holidays without the drawbacks of timeshare and without the high profits necessary to the Travel Agents. Vacation clubs buy holidays at heavily discounted prices and then sell these to their members, usually with last minute deals where the greatest discounts are found. There are no ongoing costs with vacation clubs however there can be a high initial one off cost to join, although new entrants are tending to drive this one off cost down the way. Vacation Clubs do not involve seasons, once you are a member you can purchase holidays anywhere and at any time and if you do not use the club there are no ongoing charges.


In the end, there are benefits and drawbacks to all three options. Travel agents are an excellent one stop shop for either multiple or one off holidays but you do pick up the cost of the profits for the travel company. Timeshares are a good option if you like to holiday at specific times of the season and you enjoy the complex and location where you have bought your weeks. You do need to take into account ongoing maintenance costs and your opportunity to easily swap your weeks for stays in different locations.
