Timeshare Industry Working for U.S. Economy

Timeshare, once again, has made a significant impact on the U.S. economy. A few key highlights are as follows:  

  • $79.5 billion in consumer and business spending
  • Over 511,000 full- and part-time jobs
  • $28.1 billion in salaries and wages
  • $10.2 billion in tax revenue

Spending by timeshare owners and guests during timeshare stays was estimated at $10 billion in 2015—with $3.4 billion spent onsite at resorts, and $6.6 billion spent offsite in communities where timeshare resorts are located.
