The Timeshare Association (TATOC) is a non-profit making limited company formed in 1989. It was established initially to act as a networking group for the appointed members of timeshare owners’ committees. TATOC works with a number of government departments, trading standards offices, the police and trade and consumer groups to protect the interests of timeshare owners.
RDO (formerly the OTE) was created following the decision by the European Timeshare Federation in February 1998 to integrate all national timeshare trade associations into one pan-European direct membership Organisation: The RDO. The former timeshare councils in over ten countries act now as its national chapters, and a significant number of Timeshare related companies are RDO members ruled by a strict code of ethics. RDO works closely with the DTI, OFT and governments at European and National level, aiming to create a fair legislation for Timeshare and protection to consumers. RDO is now accepted as the Timeshare industry trade body.
The American Resort Development Association (ARDA) is the Washington D.C.-based professional association representing the vacation ownership and resort development industries.
C.A.R.E. was formed as the need to provide additional services to those vacation owners whose needs were not satisfied by their major exchange company.
