Las Vegas, Nevada (NAPSI) - Make a New Year’s resolution to enjoy time with your family and friends and gain a lifetime of exceptional memories with those you love by vacationing with Wyndham Vacation Ownership (WVO).
Promising to spend time together can be one of the most extraordinary gifts you can give this year. If you were one of the almost 40 percent of Americans who sacrificed taking a vacation over the last 12 months, the new year could be the best time to show your family that you will not forgo another trip in the future.
While it’s easy to say you’ll take the time off in the coming year, if you don’t make the commitment, you could end up asking, “Where did 2013 go?” One of the best ways to guarantee you will follow through with your commitment is with vacation ownership, also known as timeshare. Timeshare owners are 23 percent more likely to take at least one trip each year than those who do not own a timeshare. Vacation ownership removes the hassle of travel planning because owners are committed to taking more vacations, more often.
Vacationing also means you are giving the gift of a healthier you. A long-term Framingham Heart Study recently found that men who take vacations are 32 percent less likely to suffer a fatal heart attack than those who don’t, while women who take fewer than two vacations a year are eight times more likely to suffer from heart disease. For many, the New Year can be the best time to make the pledge to spend more time with the people they care about for their health and happiness.
Vacation Ownership Benefits:
• It’s like having a home away from home—separate bedrooms and bathrooms, a full kitchen and even a washer and dryer.
• No vacation-planning hassle. Timeshare owners know they already have a vacation paid for; all they have to decide is where and when they want to go.
• High-quality customer service experiences. When you purchase with an established vacation ownership company, your resort experiences will be consistent in quality and service.
WVO offers flexibility not only in the location of your vacations, but also in dates and lengths of stay. Gone are the days of taking one specific week in one predetermined location—today, points-based vacation ownership allows you to choose when, where and how long your vacations are each year. WVO also provides the most flexibility in vacation planning, including exchange opportunities that let owners use their points for cruises, hotels and other vacation options.
When considering vacation ownership, be sure to do your research through useful consumer websites, such as www.vacationbetter.org (hosted by the American Resort Development Association), www.wyndhamtrips.com, www.clubwyndham.com or www.worldmarkbywyndham.com.
WVO is a member of Wyndham Worldwide’s family of companies, and is the world’s largest vacation ownership business, as measured by the number of vacation ownership resorts, individual vacation ownership units and owners of vacation ownership interests.
