Marriott Vacation Club Destinations Program Explained
The Marriott Vacation Club Destinations Program is a points-based vacation ownership program allowing owners to quickly and easily reserve their vacation time, choosing any resort in Marriott Vacation Club´s extensive portfolio of resorts. Owners can also benefit from a whole selection of additional services and opportunities since the launch of Marriott timeshare points.
What makes the destinations program different?
The Marriott Vacation Club Destinations points program was founded with the intention of offering new and existing Marriott timeshare owners additional options with regards to their luxury vacation ownership. The Marriott destination points program provides its members with access to a huge selection of luxury timeshare properties in the most desirable holiday destinations in the world. This offers much more flexibility by allowing you to choose when and where to go each time you want to book a holiday.
Marriott Vacation Club Destinations Ownership Levels
There are currently three levels in the Marriott Vacation Club destinations program and your level of ownership influences the reservation windows that you are entitled to.
Destinations Points Ownership Levels
Up to 6,499 Points Standard Owner
6,500 to 12,999 Points Premier Status
13,000 or more Destinations Points Premier Plus Status
It is worth noting that when purchasing additional points or selling existing points, your ownership level is subject to change. If this applies to your particular situation, your new ownership level will take effect on the first day of the following month.
Marriott Vacation Club Destinations Points Transaction Options
As a member of the Marriott Vacation Club Destinations program, you also have the option of banking and borrowing your points.
In the event that you discover you won’t have the capacity to use all of your points inside the present use year, you can save your present allocation of points for the following year. This is known as “banking” your points. This is an excellent option if you think you will need extra points for your holiday in the following year.
The opposite of banking your points, if the holiday you are interested in booking requires Destinations points than you presently have in your current Use Year, you are able to borrow extra points from the upcoming usage year.
