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.

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 – 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.
