C.A.R.E. (Cooperative Association of Resort Exchangers) is a trade association established in 1985 by representatives of timeshare resorts who found that by exchanging vacation inventory among themselves, they were better able to satisfy their owners with increased vacation opportunities. Today, member companies are also able to utilize inventory and generate revenue through wholesale rentals while continuing to offer expanded exchange and fulfillment options.
C.A.R.E. is not an exchange company, it does not own or control inventory or guarantee fulfillment of travel requests, and/or rental or sale of any type of inventory, service or product. C.A.R.E. provides a networking platform that offers the tools for individual business enhancement while requiring its Member companies to adhere to its Code of Standards and Ethics.
C.A.R.E. member companies currently offer 2500 vacation properties and service approximately one million vacation owners and members. C.A.R.E. is an international organization, with members throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe and Australia.
