Sudburry, Suffolk, England (December 2, 2013) — International Timeshare Resellers Travel & Leisure Group has announced a new affiliation with the Cooperative Association of Resort Exchangers (C.A.R.E.), a timeshare resorts trade association established to improve vacation property inventories by exchanging them among their own members.
Timeshare resort representatives founded C.A.R.E. in 1985 to address a growing need among private timeshare owners to find a resale broker equipped to offer their clients’ units with an option to buy, sell and rent. Without a comprehensive management company in place to oversee these services, timeshare owners found that their units weren’t getting maximum exposure in the global marketplace.
These timeshare representatives found that by establishing a cooperative network of timeshare resort agents to exchange vacation inventory, they would all be better equipped to satisfy owners with increased revenue-generating opportunities. Member timeshare representative companies are able to utilize a broader inventory and boost income through wholesale rentals, while continuing to offer expanded exchange and fulfillment options.
Travel & Leisure Group, a highly respected international timeshare resale firm based in the U.K., joined the C.A.R.E. membership ranks in order to offer clients unrivaled, one-stop services to buy, sell or rent their timeshares and in doing so, maintain their visibility worldwide.
“Many companies say they offer a complete service to their clients, but very few actually do,” says Timeshare & Leisure Group Managing Director Maria Mills-Farinas. “Companies may offer to buy or sell units on your behalf, and they may even offer both of these services.”
“However, it’s rare to find a resale broker who will offer the options to buy, sell and rent your timeshare units who actually has the mechanics in place to offer clients the peace of mind that everything is being done to ensure maximum exposure to the global marketplace.”
Since its launch in 1985, C.A.R.E. has grown into a global company with members throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe and Australia. Today, C.A.R.E. offers more than one million timeshare owners worldwide access to 2,500 vacation properties on four continents.
Fiercely protective of the excellent reputation it has earned within the vacation industry, C.A.R.E members are bound by the cooperative’s strict code of standards and ethics. In fact, not everyone who applies is granted membership.
“Travel & Leisure Group is delighted to be in a position to offer the benefits of C.A.R.E. affiliation to all of our clients,” says Mills-Farinas. “We have more than 21 years invested in the timeshare industry, and we strive to maintain an impeccable reputation–a priority we share with C.A.R.E.”
“I am extremely delighted that Travel & Leisure Group has become a CARE member,” says Sarah Bond, Travel & Leisure Group Operations Manager. “It’s a wonderful business opportunity for both parties.”
“Our rental program is going from strength to strength, and because of the Travel & Leisure Group affiliation, we are now able to offer our owners’ timeshare weeks to the industry as well as the retail market. It’s a wonderful way of assisting our clients during the resale process by renting out their unused weeks to cover their annual maintenance fees.”

Travel & Leisure Group is an authorized reseller for Diamond Resorts Points (DRI Points) and a recommended reseller for many other resorts.
