Going on holiday is exciting for everyone - we don't think that's a particularly bold claim to make. However, it's not necessarily practical for all Australian families. The costs of a holiday doesn’t stop at accommodation and airfare - they extend into expenses while travelling such as food, entertainment and so on. Therefore, it's not always financially feasible for families to go away every year.
That is, of course, unless you look into timeshare options.
Today, we explore the average budget of Australians on holiday and show you how you can cut costs when you invest in timeshare.
Average budget of Australian holiday-goer

First, let's look at what the average Australian spends on holiday. TripAdvisor's TripBarometer, a global study, found that Australians were the biggest spenders on a holiday in 2016 - so much that they actually spent double the average annual global spend. The data further broke down that about 50 per cent of travelers were looking to indulge in longer breaks, making travel budgets even bigger.
But don't let that deter you - you can enjoy time off and save money on holiday when you invest in timeshare.
Value of the timeshare
Wyndham timeshare owners actually take more holiday time than the average Australian listed in the Australian Bureau of Statistics - while timeshare owners made 5.2 reservations, the rest of the nation only took 3.3. Not only were they taking holidays, but they were doing so in luxurious destinations like the tropics of the Fijian islands, remote areas of New Zealand and exciting parts of Australia.
But the question still stands - how are they affording this travel?
Timeshare affordability is something that can fit into everyone's budget. You pay for your trip with Vacation Credits which act as your currency to book holidays. When you join you “own” a specific amount of Vacation Credits …for example; 10,000 credits and they have a lifespan of 2 years. Each year your account is awarded with the full number of Credits you own for that year, so you'll be able to go on holiday every year! Even if you don't have enough Vacation Credits at the time you want to book, you can borrow from past and upcoming years to holiday when you want.
The best part about it all? Because you're staying in an already paid for resort style suite equipped with everything you need you practically save money on holiday!
At the end of the day, the cost of the timeshare really speaks for itself. Contact our team to learn more about how you can be a part of the endless holiday.
