As the timeshare industry has evolved, major brands have worked towards making timeshare ownership better and more desirable for the current vacationer. The concept of vacationing the same week, at the same resort, every single year worked for some people, but more needed flexibility. Enter: timeshare points.

How Do Timeshare Points Work?

Timeshare points are similar to currency. Based on the frequency of your ownership (annual, biennial, biannual etc.), you get a number of points to use for your vacation. These can be purchased directly from the resort, or you can save thousands buying timeshare points for sale on the secondary market. The more points you have, the more flexibility you have for traveling.

When you think of timeshare vacations, you might assume you get one specific week, at a specific resort, every year, for the rest of your life. While this was the traditional timeshare ownership model, the industry has since evolved to accommodate the needs of current vacationers.

What does this mean? Timeshare vacations allow owners to travel more flexibly. Points-based vacation clubs let you choose when, where, and how long you want to vacation rather than being tied down to a specific week. In the same way, vacation clubs allow you to internally exchange within their affiliated resort, giving you more destination options. Not to mention the additional perks, discounts, and membership benefits that come with these club ownerships. All these aspects exist to give owners a way to customize their travel experience.

Since Hilton Grand Vacations Club operates mostly on points, fees are charged on a per point basis. This makes the timeshare maintenance fees for the brand vary significantly based on how many points each individual owner possesses. Because of this, it’s difficult to calculate general increases or decreases across HGVC resorts.
