How Club Mahindra’s Timeshare Membership gives you Value for Money

Leave a comment

The entire vacation and travel industry constantly seeks out ways to reinvent itself and lure customers. One of the biggest problems faced by the industry is risings costs. In an era of troubled economies around the world, travelers are increasingly wary of costs in every aspect of their life including spending money for vacation and holidays. Inflation is sky high, who knows how much holidays are going to cost in the future?

Amidst this conundrum lies an interesting solution. The incredibly well-crafted model of sharing vacation homes has its origin in the western world and is somewhat of a limited concept in that you get the right to a single vacation home. One of the first companies to endorse this concept in India was Club Mahindra, a vacation ownership company owned by MHRIL (Mahindra Holidays & Resorts India Limited). Now, they have almost 40 resorts and affiliation with RCI International gives you unparalleled choice and assured vacations for decades. These resorts are located in some of the most picturesque and serene locations across India.

Membership Fees:

That’s up to you! Seriously, with multiple options on the kind of accommodation you want, to the time of the year you’ll be vacationing in and the flexibility of your schedule, there are a myriad of options to choose from. With membership fees across a wide range of price-points, there’s a perfect fit for everyone. Also, Club Mahindra lets you pay these fees in EMI’s which start at costs lower than that of some mobile phones. Now just imagine the value for money on offer!

With each membership plan, you get a specific window to plan your holiday. A wide range of choices makeschoosing the perfect holiday very easy. The options for interest free EMI’smean that the whole model is structured in a way that ensures you get tremendous value while staying at luxurious and spacious resorts. If you’re married and have kids or you’re a professional with parents who’re senior citizens or just a family that loves to travel; you can find the perfect fit Club Mahindra’s membership plans.

Club Mahindra is an RCI (Resorts Condominium International) affiliate. Hence, when you become a member of Club Mahindra, you also get access to resorts around the world. Now isn’t that amazing?

Freedom from Inflation:

Imagine this – you go to your favorite destination and stay at a hotel. You really like the location and the hotel, and decide to return the year after. Guess what? A hotel room now costs a lot more than it did the previous year!

Percentage Increase in Average Cost of Hotel Room - Global

Percentage Increase in Average Cost of Hotel Room – Global

Percentage Increase in Average Cost of Hotel Room - Asia Pacific

Percentage Increase in Average Cost of Hotel Room – Asia Pacific

Take a look at the two graphs above; it’s evident that hotel costs have risen to a great extent over the last decade or so. The only exception has been during the global economic crises during 2008-2009. Also, take into account the fact that with these rising costs, the associated surcharges and taxes too have risen.

This is something you never have to worry about with the timeshare model! Because hotel costs constantly vary (And increase in most cases), the timeshare model really shines through as you don’t bear the financial burden of the increase in rates. In this model, you pay for your stay in advance when you purchase the timeshare. By paying yearly maintenance fees, you ensure that you will get to use this timeshare every year. These maintenance fees will see a small increment every year, but you’ll still end up saving considerably as hotel rates continue to increase.

A Vacation for Decades:

A Club Mahindra membership guarantees vacations for the next 25 years. Also, your children can use your timeshare and you can even gift holidays to your friends and family. As a result, this investment is beneficial to you, your family and even your friends in some cases. In addition, these are protected from inflation and it’s truly amazing when you think of the value for money on offer.

So what are you waiting for?

Financial benefits of this business model are one of the biggest gains you stand to make. That’s not all, with a plethora of choice in front of you; you’re assured of holidays for the next two and a half decades. The resorts have a host of activities for the entire family right from – indoor and outdoor games, adventure activities, dance, crafts and painting classes, etc. The moments that you share with your family are truly priceless; with a Club Mahindra membership you can travel throughout the country and around the world, and make them unforgettable.
