The Resort Development Organisation, was established to improve representation for reputable companies in the timeshare sector and promote fair trading, quality within and growth of the timeshare industry.
Its members lead the industry in their commitment to strong ethical standards with the aim of raising the standards of the industry a whole, ensure fair trading and satisfaction of timeshare owners.
RDO 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.
RDO is a direct membership Organisation with over 90 members from all sectors of the industry across Europe, including resort developers, exchange companies, management and marketing companies, trustees, finance houses and resale companies.
Members are committed to high service standards and integrity, and are bound by a code of ethics which ensures buyers have secure occupancy rights and that payments are protected.
RDO works with governments at European and national level to create fair legislation that safeguards the interests of the consumer and encourages the positive development of the industry.
The Organisation organises an annual conference, the largest timeshare garthering in Europe, at which industry members can network and exchange opinions with other colleagues in the industry.
The former National Associations in 14 European countries act as National Chapters of RDO, and are responsible for carrying out programmes and agreed activities in their respective markets.
They are located in Belgium (covering Benelux), Cyprus, Finland (covering Scandinavia), Germany (covering the German Speaking Region), Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and the UK.
