Our mission at Zurfers is to “connect travelers and empower them to GoSee the world.” At Zurfers we are not vacation ownership developers, but our team’s expertise and acclaimed experience in the industry gives us a thorough understanding of the vacation ownership world, and even better, it enables us to understand how we can improve travel for vacation owners today.
Vacation ownership has been around since the early 1960’s when vacation home sharing involved four families that would purchase a vacation home together. At the time, the families would divide the property by seasons, with each family having exclusive ownership of the property for one of the four seasons. To make it fair, the seasons would rotate annually. At the time, most of the buyers were extended families, as trust was needed without any official property manager or third-party involved. The concept of vacation home sharing grew in such popularity that the evolution of timeshares began evolving into the systems we are familiar with today.
Instead of full seasons, vacation owners now purchase a percentage of ownership of a property that is operated by a company. Allocation standards and methods vary from company to company, but as a whole, timeshare owners often benefit from third party management, who oversee the property and its maintenance, and affordable rates. Vacation ownership has been wildly successful for a reason, but Zurfers is set to evolve the industry once again.
With Zurfers, travelers are no longer limited to one destination for the rest of their lives and the waiting and hassle being issued and deposting tokens, calling during call center hours, and waiting for weeks is now obsolete. With Zurfers, we love the vacation ownership industry, but we’re improving and evolving it for consumers. With our platform, a vacation owner’s destinations are varied and the world is now everyone’s oyster. Vacation owners now simply deposit their tokens and then List, Exchange, and GoSee.
With the best aspects of the membership-focused vacation ownership ndustry and those of the listing-focused residential market, Zurfers is set to innovate travel and redefine how the world lodges.
