The purpose of this paper is to examine how timeshare strategy can assist tourism investment in the lodging sector within a transitional economy. Specifically, the study describes initial timeshare operations in Croatia, an example of a transitional country, steeped in tourism tradition. Moreover, the discussion identifies benefits and challenges to timeshare implementation for hotel companies, when applied to broader tertiary perspectives. By using the case study approach, a record of events that lead to establishing timeshare operations should serve as a collaborative example to other developers, investors, hotel companies and legal entities that may attempt similar projects in other transitional tourism countries.
