ASHVEILLE, NC (March 25, 2014) — Resort Travel & Xchange (RTX) is proud to announce that the Timeshare Association (Timeshare Owners and Committees), known as TATOC, has approved its application for affiliation with the organization, which was formed in 1989 and is the only elected consumer association representing the interests of timeshare owners in Europe.
Launched five years ago, TATOC affiliation was developed to provide a directory of suppliers of services such as marketing, exchange and re-sale to the timeshare industry in Europe. TATOC member resorts looking to purchase such services for their own operations and to recommend to their members can work with these businesses safe in the knowledge they are regularly assessed to ensure the highest levels of customer service.
”At RTX we admire TATOC’s mission of safeguarding and enhancing the timeshare experience for its users and owners,” said Will Horton, RTX president and CEO. “In essence that is why we started RTX to begin with. Our motto, A Better Way to Exchange, is really about enhancing the timeshare experience. Who better to align yourself with than a group of proven industry leaders who share one single simple but important goal?”
“At RTX we are constantly striving to improve the product we provide to our more than 60,000 members,” said Horton. “With our industry truly becoming a smaller global marketplace, the work TATOC has done throughout Europe is something we believe in and felt compelled to become a part of for the betterment of our members and timeshare owners throughout the world.”
Speaking about the affiliation, Harry Taylor, TATOC’s executive chairman added: “Resort Travel Xchange is a well-known and respected name in the U.S. timeshare industry and we are delighted that they understand the importance of TATOC affiliation in their plans to launch their products and services in Europe.”
As affiliates of TATOC, RTX will adhere to the TATOC Code of Conduct issued in August 2011 and the association’s code of ethics. All companies wishing to affiliate to TATOC are thoroughly vetted beforehand and continually monitored. Further details of the code of conduct can be found on the Association’s website (www.tatco.co.uk).
Today there are over 30 affiliated companies offering high quality, customer-focused products and services to the timeshare industry. TATOC affiliation has given these companies the edge when competing with other non-affiliated businesses.
