History of Vacation Club
The concept of Vacation Club was first mooted at a ski resort in the French Alps in the early 60’s as a result of the high cost of accommodation rental, scarcity of resort facilities and limited choice for European vacation conscious families. By the early 70’s, Vacation Club began to gain popularity in the United States. By the mid-80’s, Vacation Club became a well-established concept that hit the vacation industry. Today, what used to be a vacation option for a select few is now enjoyed by millions of people in countries around the world.
In Malaysia, the tourism industry had expanded rapidly in line with the growth of the economy and travelling lifestyles of people. Vacation Club was a natural extension of the tourism industry, resulting in a number of companies, including subsidiaries of listed companies and hotel chains had ventured into this industry to tap the growth of this industry.
