History of Vacation Ownership



Vacation ownership is a concept that originated in the French Alps in the 1960s. Now, 40 years later, it is one of the most popular vacation options enjoyed by today's leisure travelers. Consumer enjoyment of vacation ownership is making it one of the fastest-growing sectors of the hospitality industry.
