Packing your holiday bags is not as simple picking sets of clothing for each day you’re on vacation. You need to plan what goes into your bags – depending on destination, holiday season and what your resort guide recommends. Most of the time we don’t really look at the “guideline” mails sent to us by customer assistance, because we just don’t have the time. But that’s where things can go wrong.

A beach side location for instance would call for shorts, tees, Bermudas and flip flops as your move around clothes. A jungle lodges location on the other hand would call for something that’s trendy but close to army camouflage clothing, if you want to call it that. Of course what season you have in mind would also be a prime consideration. A summer vacation would call for something summery, and a winter vacation would likewise get you pulling out some woollies.

This month we touch upon a tourism issue that is being taken seriously in the hospitality industry – “the concern for environment protection on a vacation”. So while more and more people are getting aware about the need to do something, where do you go from here?

Let’s talk about the industry that we are in – timeshare, or vacation ownership.

On the one hand resort owners need to drive the implementation of ecotourism practices at their resorts. You can start with outlining a set of easy-to-understand guidelines that visitors and tourists can follow. At a second level you need to go from awareness to implementation – by helping your guests follow these guidelines.

A good place to start is aiming to protect the environment around us – living spaces where forests survive, water bodies retain their pristine state – and where animal and bird life don’t feel threatened by the presence of visitors, or tourists.

Take that vacation – you’re bound to meet interesting people, and sometimes that can be very, very inspirational. On my recent trip to Goa, I had the opportunity of meeting Odette Mascarenhas – television host, celebrated author and a critic of culinary preparations – she is also the inspiration behind the Goan Culinary Club.

And remember that we all need a little break once in a while, as it helps us work better. Try reading through various travel blogs, they will definitely encourage you to get off that work chair and travel more often. I invariably have a bag ready and packed for a vacation, but because of my hectic job I don’t get to travel much. But when I get that chance to travel, I make good use of it.

Corfu, Rome and Ibiza are all proving popular with Brits this year, with the first receiving 100 per cent more interest than at the start of the year.
The recent Travelnomics UK Quarterly Industry Insight: Q2 April – June 2009 survey from CheapFlights.co.uk shows that timeshare holidays are often taken in these locations, with Sharron Livingston, editor at thetravelmagazine.net, saying this comes as no surprise.
“Corfu offers a sleep-easy style in ancient, lush environs, Rome’s winning combination of religious sites like the Vatican City, its ancient Roman ruins, stylish shops and gastronomy hits the spot for culture vultures,” she said.
The expert added that Greece, Italy and Spain have always been very popular with British holidaymakers.
While Corfu topped the poll for locations timeshare holidaymakers are likely to pick, Athens, Bodrum, Palma and Malta also came in the top ten, as well as some UK destinations.
Rome saw 54 per cent more interest in the second quarter of the year, compared to the first, while Ibiza’s popularity rose by 40 per cent.
