What is Hilton Vacation Club? All You Need to Know

Hilton Grand Vacations Club

The Hilton hospitality company began in the early 1900s when founder Conrad Hilton acquired a small hotel in Texas. Since then, Hilton has built a reputation for innovation and modernization in the hospitality industry. In fact, Hilton hotels were the first to place TVs in every room. Hilton is also credited with developing the first central reservations system. They’ve been a game-changer since the start. As timeshare began to grow in popularity, Hilton began their own vacation club that we know today, Hilton Grand Vacations. The Hilton vacation club offers a new timeshare model that owners love.

What is Hilton Grand Vacations Club?

Hilton Grand Vacations Club

Hilton Grand Vacations Club is the timeshare brand under Hilton Inc., and is also a publicly-traded company. Travelers that prefer to stay with Hilton on vacation can become HGVC owners to enjoy all of the benefits of timeshare and guarantee vacations for life. Hilton Vacation Club offers a points-based system, so owners experience the ultimate flexibility and freedom within their ownership. This flexibility could be one of the reasons why you should buy Hilton Grand Vacations Club timeshares! Points can be used like vacation currency to make reservations at any one of the Hilton resort properties.

Hilton’s 55 resorts run the gamut of vacation destinations from tropical destinations like Barbados to urban getaways in New York City. International destinations include the romantic landscapes of Portugal to energizing resorts in Japan’s scenic countryside. Hilton has a location for every vacation style, so you’re sure to find the perfect getaway for you.

Hilton Grand Vacations Club resorts offer exceptional amenities like game rooms, laundry facilities, on-site fine dining options, exercise rooms, and on-site spas. These offerings enrich owners’ vacation ownership experiences, making for unforgettable vacations. So, in addition to incredible vacation destinations, Hilton provides all of the luxuries that you’d desire while vacationing.

Hilton Grand Vacations Club Points

Hilton, like almost all resort developers, uses a points system for timeshare owners. So, if you purchase a Hilton timeshare, your ownership is assigned a certain amount of points known as ClubPoints. The amount of ClubPoints your vacation ownership is worth depends on a number of factors. These can include the resort’s popularity, the season or week of the ownership, as well as the size and type of your unit. HGVC members can save points from one year to the next or borrow from the following year. This gives owners the ultimate flexibility when it comes to planning their vacations.

Trade HGVC Points On RCI

Hilton Vacation Club owners also have the opportunity to join the world’s largest vacation exchange program, RCI. HGVC points can also be traded for stays at resorts around the world through Hilton’s partnership with RCI (Previously known as Resort Condominiums International). RCI allows owners to trade their timeshare weeks or points for stays at thousands of resorts worldwide. By depositing points onto RCI’s vacation exchange network, owners are able to exchange them for vacations at over 4,000 resorts. RCI’s destinations include nearly every vacation destination you can think of, from the Swiss Alps to Bali. This gives Hilton timeshare owners even more flexibility when it comes to vacation planning. So, even if the timeshare you own is in Myrtle Beach, you’d have the ability to vacation in Maui by just trading your existing points!
