Timeshare owners have a unique and incredible opportunity to travel further, faster and better with vacation exchange. While your Home resort can offer luxurious amenities and spacious accommodations, sometimes we just want to see more.
With vacation exchange, timeshare owners can trade their timeshare week or points for another vacation property worldwide. There are several vacation exchange networks that top brands are affiliated with. Some even have their own internal exchange networks as an added bonus for owners.
Whether you’re using an internal exchange network or an external one, there are similarities in how the process works. You can also exchange either your timeshare week (fixed or floating) or your timeshare points. Part of the benefit of vacation exchange is trading your timeshare for resorts anywhere, no matter what you own. When you’re ready to travel the world, your week or points convert like currency. Depending on what you own is what determines how many points you can exchange with. These factors include the season, resort, unit size, or week you own.
The first step is to deposit your points/week on your internal or external exchange network. You can then use your converted ownership to book for the equivalent vacation opportunity. Keep in mind, Bluegreen Vacations points at a resort in Tennessee might not equate to vacation at a Disney Vacation Club resort. Depending on the size of your unit, how many points you own, or what week you own can play a role in how many points you can trade with.
