Listen up, paradise lovers. You can get the resort and destination that you want while saving your points — here’s how.
First, you’ll need your points chart. You can find it on the resort page under the “Point Chart” drop down. Points charts tell you how many points you’ll need to book your vacation based on the resort, suite size, and timeshare season. With your chart in-hand, you’re ready to book your vacation and save your points with these 4 tips.
Tip 1: Consider Quiet and Value Seasons
Timeshare seasons are determined by a resort’s availability during certain times of the year. The more popular the season, the more points you’ll need to book that resort during that time.
Prime and High seasons are more desirable, but also require more points. By planning your vacations in Quiet and Value seasons, you can save your points for a future getaway.
Tip 2: Be Flexible
Be flexible with your vacation days. Sunday-Thursday vacations require fewer points per night, and there’s usually more resort availability during this time. Who said vacations have to be a weekend shindig anyway?
Tip 3: Compare the Points
Some resorts in your destination require fewer points than others. Plus, they’re still located near the activities and attractions that you want. For example: If you can’t find availability at Margaritaville Vacation Club by Wyndham - St. Thomas, check out Limetree Beach Resort by Club Wyndham or Club Wyndham Elysian Beach Resort also on the island. Compare the points charts for each resort to get the best deal.
Tip 4: Use Your Points Discounts
Last-minute travelers, meet last-minute vacation deals. Your Deals & Offers section can get you a 10-50% points discount at select resorts, and they change monthly. This deal is just for Margaritaville Vacation Club owners, because you’re also kind of a big deal.
Just like that, you have the tools you need to book a vacation, save your points, and turn one vacation into two. Not a bad way to get a wave from it all.
