Dubai Timeshare Industry Set to Expand in 2017

One of the most electrifying destinations in the Middle East, Dubai has become one of the world’s most popular and in-demand travel locations. Despite its relentlessly growing popularity, the city’s number of timeshare resorts has remained tame. However, with plans for even more attractions, the Dubai timeshare industry is set to see a rapid increase this year, with projections showing a growth rate of 50 percent. [Read more…]

Will Royal Honeymoon Boost Middle East Hotel and Timeshares?

In a year that has seen tourism and travel to the Middle East seriously impacted by concerns about unrest and traveler safety, plans for a Royal Honeymoon in Jordan may provide a much-needed boost to traveler confidence.

Prince William and his soon-to-be bride Kate Middleton have selected Jordan as their honeymoon destination, with plans to see the historic archeological city of Petra and the Wadi Rum. The Wadi Rum, a valley of granite and sandstone, is also widely known as, “The Valley of the Moon.”

Tourism and Middle East Timeshare

According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), premium travel growth in the Middle East slowed only to 7.7 percent from 8.1 percent in February 2011 (most recent figures released) while economy travel growth slowed to 3.3 percent from 4.9 percent in January. Surprisingly, air travel to the Middle East saw a 6 percent increase in February year-over-year. The IATA does predict however, that upcoming months would show air travel numbers negatively affected by rising fuel costs, safety concerns, and even the tsunami in Japan.

Despite the challenges, Egypt, Tunisia and Dubai are all areas anticipating that this week brings a surge of last minute travelers seeking an Easter holiday. Consistently, timeshare resales and timeshare rentals represent some of the best travel deals available for those vacationing in the Middle East. Be sure to check Egypt timeshare; Dubai timeshare; Indian Ocean timeshare; and Abu Dhabi timeshare when you are considering travel in this region.

Economy Creates an Interesting Situation in Dubai Timeshare and Vacation Ownership

Timeshare Exchange Leader Adds New Vacation Club

Timeshare Exchange Leader Adds New Vacation Club

Interval International, one of the two largest timeshare exchange companies has added an affiliation with the Emirates Vacation Club, a private residence club in Dubai. Timeshare exchange is consistently one of the top reasons timeshare owners cite for buying timeshare or timeshare resales.

Dubai timeshare was slower to enter the global timeshare market than European timeshare or US timeshare, but delayed their involvement only because governmental leaders wanted to lay careful groundwork for the Dubai timeshare industry, protecting the interests of both the country’s heritage and of prospective timeshare owners. Located in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai has already developed some of the most desirable and luxurious seaside resorts in the world, as forward-thinking leaders seek to create marketable resources for a global economy that could grow less and less dependent on Middle Eastern oil reserves in the future.

David Clifton, Interval’s managing director for Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia, says, “Interval International is excited to welcome Emirates Vacation Club to our network of resorts. This stunning urban property is the flagship resort of Emirates Grand, a hotel ownership and management company formed by Dr. Khalid M. Kadfoor Al-Mehairi, a well-respected attorney and resident of the UAE. We look forward to building on our close relationship with the company, as it adds high-quality properties in destinations throughout the Middle East to its portfolio.”

The Emirates Vacation Club will be built in phases with Phase I including 32 luxury condo units to be part of the 48-story Emirates Grand Hotel. The vacation club condos will include studio, one, and two-bedroom units with fully equipped kitchens and most with soaring views from floor to ceiling windows. Buyers can purchase fractional ownership of multiple weeks or single week intervals. Members of Interval International timeshare exchange have opportunities for timeshare exchange at this lavish resort.

Ashraf El Zarqa, chief operating officer for Emirates Grand says, “Our vision is to provide an outstanding level of luxury at affordable prices that appeal to consumers from around the world. Our initial primary markets include the Middle East, Europe, and Asia. We chose to affiliate with Interval International because of the quality resorts they offer and the great membership benefits they provide our owners.”

El Zarqa also noted that they chose affiliation with Interval International timeshare exchange because of II’s reputation for high levels of service and quality.
