Becoming a member of Hilton Grand Vacations Club gives you access to timeshare resorts from New York City to Orlando; from sunny Carlsbad, California to even sunnier Miami Beach. You’ll also find Hilton Grand Vacations Club resorts along the Florida Gulf beaches, the Las Vegas Strip, and in the beautiful Hawaiian Islands.
There are two types of Hilton Grand Vacations Club timeshare products you can buy as resales: Hilton Grand Vacations Club Points, which are timeshare vacation points that can be exchanged within the Hilton Grand Vacations Club resort network as well as exchanged for other travel products; and Hilton Grand Vacation timeshares, which are deeded usage weeks at a home resort.
Hilton Grand Vacations Club is a points-based reservation and exchange system. Members purchase a deeded, floating interval at the resort of their choice and receive an annual allotment of timeshare points, called Club Points, that corresponds to the value of the deeded interval they own. The allotment of points is based on the popularity of their home resort, the size of their unit and the ownership season.
Because the people at Hilton consider life to be incomplete without vacations, they have tried to make the Hilton Grand Vacations Club point system one of the most flexible ones in timesharing. They describe their timeshare points system as so flexible it is, "limited only by your own imagination."
HGVC members do have many options when it comes to using their timeshare points. They can borrow points from the upcoming year (no charge), bank points for future use (no charge), and even rescue points they failed to bank by their deadline in the past (small fee).
Club Points can then be used to reserve vacations in a number of ways. Member/owners can use Club Points to reserve a traditional one-week interval at their home resort or any of the other HGVC Resorts. They can also use their Club Points to book short-stay getaways. Depending upon their number of Club Points, they may be able to reserve larger units in a better season at another resort or reserve a smaller unit in a less popular season, sometimes turning one week of vacation into two, with no additional charge.
Booking reservations within the Hilton Grand Vacations system is on a first-come, first-served basis with member being able to book at their home resort up to 15 months in advance of check-in; book within the system of Hilton resort properties up to 9 months in advance of check-in; and reserve empty units as discounted rentals within 30 days of check-in.
Many Hilton timeshare sold as resales are fixed week ownership. This means that when you buy Hilton timeshare resales, you receive a deeded, fee simple interest in an interval at a specific Hilton Resort. You do not receive Club Points based on the value of your timeshare. Hilton vacation timeshare resale owners can choose to join the Hilton Grand Vacations Club program (and enjoy the benefits of Club Points) by paying a small membership transfer fee. They can also join RCI timeshare exchange network and gain access to timeshare exchange at the thousands of RCI affiliated resorts around the world.
Although neither of these types of vacation ownership, when purchased as a resale, are eligible for the Hilton Elite Club program, most owners find that the savings of buying timeshare resale far outweigh this one exclusion. And, whether you buy your Hilton Grand Vacations Club timeshare through Hilton or as a resale you buy from a current Hilton owner you are automatically enrolled in the Hilton HHoners program, a unique program providing Hilton timeshare owners access to more than 3,000 participating Hilton hotels around the world including hotels by Doubletree, Hampton Inn, Embassy Suites, Hilton Garden, and more.
