At any forum that I am invited to as a panelist or member of the audience, I try and share the AIRDA story – describing our role as a voluntary and regulatory body for timeshare in India. AIRDA is a coming together of like-minded resorts sharing the same professional views and commitments – to the end-consumer and the timeshare industry.

When AIRDA’s founding cornerstones were erected, our primary objective was to think alike and think together in our approach to timeshare marketing and delivery of services. Our next objective was to give this fledging body a voice and a conscience. Eventually we saw the creation of an industry beacon that would light up new avenues and chart new paths for India’s timeshare industry.

AIRDA_Cartoon+Collage Anand Reddy is the first timeshare user we have featured in our Q&A columns who is on the customer list of not one, but two timeshare companies in India. We chat with him about work pressures, busy schedules, and taking a break at least once in a year, with the family.

Q: As a logical first question, how did you see the need for two timeshare plans?

A: Initially, I did not see myself picking up more than one timeshare plan – things just happened. My first timeshare plan was with Mahindra, and the second was an impulse decision when I went along with some friends on a holiday to a Sterling property in Puri, Orissa. I liked the setting there so much that I just said YES to a sales team at the resort that invited me to a presentation. Looking back, I think it was not really a bad decision – this way we have the best of both worlds, as these names are industry leaders and have some great properties in India.
