    Hard to believe that the resorts do as well as they do with occupancy rates that high.

    I agree. I gave up on exchanges. I can never get what I want, and if I do, I only find out about a month before check-in. I like to book my vacation time at least a year or more out.
    I’m glad I own 3 weeks at the resort I want to always go to from now on. Now, I just need to get rid of a fixed week at a non Hawaii resort that has great trading power, but I never use it. (Rentals are only handled by the resort, after a admin fee and paperwork + % of rental income.)

    Interesting data... Thanks for sharing :thumbup:


    Found some other interesting documents as well from the Hawaii Tourism Authority

    A total of 9,382,986 visitors came to Hawai‘i in 2017, surpassing the 2016 record of 8,934,277 visitors by 5 percent. On average, there were 230,113 visitors in the Hawaiian Islands on any given day in 2017, up 5 percent versus 2016.

    The Hawaiian Islands welcomed a total of 839,024 timeshare visitors in 2017, a 5.1% increase over 2016. Of that total, 77.1% stayed exclusively at a timeshare resort, a similar rate to the previous year. The remaining 22.9% of timeshare visitors also stayed at another type of lodging during their trip.

    335,337 timeshare visitors on Oahu
    304,951 timeshare visitors on Maui
    210,904 timeshare visitors on Kauai
    173,639 timeshare visitors on the Big Island

    Owner use accounted for 57.8% of the occupied room nights at Hawai‘i’s timeshare resorts during 2017. Exchangers accounted for 18.4% of the occupied room nights, followed by transient rental, which represented 16.3% of room nights. Marketing use represented 7.4% of occupied room nights.

    During 2017, participating timeshare properties reported paying $87.1 million in state and county taxes, with real property taxes accounting for 45.6% of the total.

    Interesting information. I wonder of the 22.9% that stayed in timeshares as well as other type of lodging how many days did they stay in a hotel, vacation rental, friends and relatives etc. I know we stay for many nights in timeshares, but in order to work around high airline costs and fill gaps between timeshares we have stayed for a day or 2 in Hotels. Once to attend the Merrie Monarch we stayed in a vacation rental in Hokolau on Hawaii Island.
