In 1997, a visionary group of resort developers and RCI inked a blueprint for an independent body – an association with a purpose and an agenda – keeping in mind the nascent profile of timeshare in the country and the constructive role that could be played by developers to grow the industry.
Importantly, to work hand-in-hand with both promoters and consumers in the industry. This was how the foundation was laid for the All India Resort Development Association (AIRDA).
Today we have 26 committed members under the AIRDA banner – who are united in the cause of promoting a body that believes in ethics, transparency, and fair value to the customer.
Our member committee represents a cross-section of players in the timeshare industry - small, medium, and large – some of them with one resort location and others with over 4000 resorts. And irrespective of the size of operations, each one of them stands united behind the core objectives of AIRDA.
An association that is re-defining the organized sector of timeshare in the country. It’s your gateway to timeshare in India.
The building blocks at AIRDA aim to create a value base around "timeshare" reflecting an image of trust and professionalism. With core strategy inputs from members, AIRDA has formulated fair business practices to protect the interests of members and end-customers.
We are also committed to elevating "timeshare" to the level of a key business driver for domestic tourism and vacation ownership - thereby increasing awareness of opportunities and geographies. This helps existing players visualize platforms for growth and expansion, and new entrants make viable project investments.

What does AIRDA mean to holiday seekers and prospective customers? AIRDA comes in to provide information and offer guidelines on making the right timeshare decisions.
