In 1974, Jon and Christel De Haan set out to add greater value to the timeshare experience when they pioneered the holiday exchange concept. The De Haans developed a system that allowed owners to exchange time at their home resort for a stay at a different resort property that was signed up to their exchange programme. In this way, they delivered a new level of flexibility and choice to those owning holiday homes – who were the very first timeshare owners. Almost half a century later millions of people are now enjoying the benefit and freedom that comes with owning timeshare and being a member of a holiday exchange network.
Today, we remain the global leader in the provision of holiday exchange services, offering the world’s largest resort holiday exchange network. More than that, we provide a suite of unrivalled products and services designed to enhance the leisure lifestyles of our members. These are all reasons why more resorts trust us to deliver holiday exchange services to their owners than any other company across the globe.
