Australian Timeshare May Be the Answer
Saturday, October 20, 2007
The Travel Mole recently cited a Harris poll that said, for the eleventh year in a row, Americans list Australia as the number one place they would like to visit. Yet less than a half million Americans make it to Australia each year, and there has been ostensibly, no increase in American tourism to Australia since the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
Tourism officials in Australia feel confident that the problem lies with time and money. When you head south to Australia, you really head south. Air travel from Los Angeles to Sydney is, at best, a fourteen-hour flight. Then there’s the cost. By the time many people shell out the money for air tickets to Australia, there is not much left over for lodging and other expenses associated with vacationing.
So here’s the twofold plan that just may get you to the land of wallabies and koalas. First, Australia is a growing destination for timeshare development and offers fabulous opportunities in Australia timeshare resales and rentals. And as the millions of satisfied timeshare owners will attest, buying timeshare lets you freeze the price of vacation accommodations for as long as you own your timeshare.
The Future of Australia Tourism
Tourism Australia (the governmental agency responsible for promoting Australian tourism) is working to entice Americans to the Land Down Under by educating US travel agents about the options and desirability in Australian vacations.
To help make air travel to Australia more affordable, Qantas airlines is offering the Aussie Air Pass, which starts at a little over one thousand dollars. Qantas is also working hard on a campaign designed to show Americans that air travel on Qantas is more comfortable than the standards most of us have come to accept from US budget airlines.
The Future of Australia Timeshare
In a statement issued in September 2005, Senator Grant Chapman, Chairman of Australia’s Parliamentary Joint Committee on Corporations and Financial Services, said, “In my view the timeshare industry has the potential to continue to make a significant contribution to the tourism industry in Australia. Timeshare is a viable product, and there are many thousands of happy timeshare participants in Australia and overseas.”
Australia is committed to helping US vacationers enjoy everything from the Great Barrier Reef to the Coober Pedy; from the Sydney Opera House to the Golden Outback.
