How To Best Manage Your Timeshare Points

If you have unused timeshare points but are unsure how to use them, we've got you covered! Here are some tips to ensure you and your family get the most out of your timeshare points and your timeshare vacation!

What Are Timeshare Points?
While the original timeshare was designed for owners to have the same unit, at the same resort, at the same time every year, timeshares are now more flexible with point systems. Timeshare owners can reserve a stay in a different unit, in a different timeshare resort at different times of the year using their timeshare points either through their timeshare company or a timeshare exchange company. Timeshare points may also be described as credits or intervals. The timeshare company assigns values for the room nights using points for the unit type and the resort based on the time of year.

How Do I Acquire Timeshare Points?
Depending on the timeshare company, some timeshare owners are granted deeded points, which entitles them to a certain number of timeshare points every year to use at their resorts. The more points you acquire, the more flexibility you have regarding your timeshare vacation options. In most cases, timeshare points do not have to solely be used on a timeshare vacation. Read on to discover the different ways you can use your timeshare points!

How Can I Use My Timeshare Points?
With a bank of timeshare points at your disposal, it can be overwhelming trying to determine just how you should use your timeshare points. The most obvious way is to book the vacation of your dreams at a timeshare resort of your choosing.

However, you can frequently exchange your timeshare points for other amenities like airline frequent flier miles, hotel rewards, stays at other timeshare resorts or cruise vacations! But, don't worry if you can't use all of your timeshare points during the year. You can usually bank them and save them for the next year or you can rent them out.

Book Early!
If you're looking to book a stay during a popular vacation time or holiday, make your reservation as far out as your timeshare company allows. That is your best chance to confirm your stay during the busy seasons. Call your customer service representative for more insider tips.
