Learn about Vacation Ownership/Timeshare

Vacation Ownership/Timeshare is huge within the travel industry. Over half a million people that live within Europe own timeshare in over 1,300 different resorts.

Why Timeshare


Family image on Goldensands blog imageWith today’s hectic lifestyles, most families make a point of enjoying family time together at least once a year. To know you have the security of a guaranteed standard of accommodation each year is one less uncertainty to worry about, which saves a huge amount of time, money and risk searching for online accommodation.

Like most industries and products, timeshare as some of you know it (or think you know it) has changed over the last decade. If you think about the first mobile phone you ever had and compare it to today’s technology and capabilities, they are completely different. Fast-forward to today’s generation of hotels and developers throughout the world. They have been creating resorts and services that transport you during your annual vacation to a life that you deserve to live, to enjoy experiences that until now were only a dream on your wish list. These days, it is the norm for luxury hotel chains to offer vacation ownership to people who deserve to own a slice of that luxury.


Own it

Owning the flexibility of a floating period of time during a particular season at your home resort takes the hassle out of planning. This allows you to enjoy your spacious, fully furnished ‘home from home’ with every visit, while taking advantage of the discounts of your Vacation Club - from flights and car hire to restaurant, bar and spa savings at the resort. The management company takes care of the resort, maintaining high standards, so all you have to do is enjoy your stay.

Use it

Love Malta? Secure a week for you and your family at today’s prices, and enjoy holidays for many years to come at your home resort. No interconnecting rooms or bland self-catering apartments; you choose from studio to 4 bedroom, beautifully designed spacious suites that match your family size. Timeshare resorts give you more - more space, more facilities and more choice. Experience first-class service and high-end accommodation every time.

Exchange it

Share it

Can’t use your membership this year?  How about gaining instant popularity amongst friends and family by transferring your week’s occupancy rights for them to use? Alternatively, make use of RCI’s exchanges and upgrade the accommodation size, so you can take a trip and holiday together. Looking for that special gift?
