5 Reasons Women are Taking Timeshare Vacations without their Spouse

Plan a Girlfriend Getaway at a timeshare resort.If you are surprised to learn that 38 percent of women are already taking girlfriends-only vacations, (without their husband, boyfriend, significant other, or the kids) then you may be amazed to find out that 63 percent of the women surveyed plan on taking up the practice within the next two years.

According to research released by the American Resort Development Association (ARDA), the trend toward girls-only holidays and timeshare vacations is strong and growing. Women, especially those in the thirty-something to forty-something demographic, are choosing to vacation with other female friends and family members in increasing numbers.

Here are just five of the many reasons that more and more women plan girls-only vacations:

  • Overworked and overstressed, women seek a break from their responsibilities as career women, wives and mothers.
  • As a working woman, today’s woman has income she considers expendable and discretionary.
  • Girls-only vacations afford women time for nurturing friendships.
  • Girlfriend vacations are about rest and rejuvenation, not compromising holiday time doing what your children or your spouse wants to do.
  • Research reinforces the message that although vacation time is important for everyone, it can play an especially critical role in women’s health and wellbeing.
  • Timeshare Vacations take the Stress Out of Vacation Planning

    Timeshare vacations are the low-stress vacation choice. Staying in timeshares get you out of a cramped hotel room and into spacious accommodations with multiple bedrooms, a living area, and a kitchen. Timeshare exchange means that no matter where you own timeshare, you don’t have to travel cross-country to holiday. You can vacation close to home, yet enjoy the experience of feeling transported a million miles away from daily routines and responsibilities.

    Timeshare resorts are typically safe places to relax. Frequented by vacationers rather than conventioneers or overnight travelers, timeshare resorts tend to be properties with limited ‘outsider’ traffic and many onsite activities and options.

    As Howard Nusbaum, ARDA president and CEO says, “Making the Girlfriend Getaway special starts with selecting the right place. Timeshare provides spacious accommodations in fabulous locations and are a terrific option for these girls-only vacations.”
