Points: Get The Basics

Ready to book your next trip to paradise? Your vacation escape is just a few simple steps away. First learn the ins and outs of the basic parts of every reservation, then learn how to plan your next trip.

Margaritaville Vacation Club Points

Margaritaville Vacation Club points are your vacation currency and are used to pay for the resort accommodations you request. The amount of points you need will vary based on the resort you choose, the suite size, your length of stay, and the season your reservation falls into. Every resort has a points chart to indicate how much you’ll need to spend for your vacation.

Housekeeping Credits

Housekeeping credits are allocated along with your Use Year points. You receive one housekeeping credit for every 70,000 points you own. If you’re an owner with VIP benefits, you will receive additional housekeeping credits based on your tier level. These credits are used for cleaning and preparing your suite prior to your arrival. You will need one housekeeping credit plus your points per reservation, regardless of the suite size and length of stay you’ve reserved. Additional housekeeping credits can be purchased for $159 per credit.

Use Year

Your Use Year is the 12-month period you have to use your Margaritaville Vacation Club points. Your points are deposited into your account every year on the start of your Use Year, which may be Jan. 1, April 1, July 1, or Oct. 1, depending on when you purchased. As you use your points for resort reservations or other benefits, they are deducted from your total points for the Use Year. It’s important to use all of your points before the end of your Use Year as any points remaining in your account at the end of your Use Year will expire.

Reservation Transactions

Reservation transactions are awarded each calendar year. You receive one reservation transaction per every 77,000 points you own. A reservation transaction is required each time you book a vacation, make an internal or external exchange (Wyndham Club Pass, RCI), book a cruise or Adventures tour using points, or convert points to maintenance dollars. Like points, they are deducted from your account as you use them. Like housekeeping credits, you can always purchase more if you need them ($39 over the phone). The fee for additional Reservation Transactions will be waived when booking on your owner website.
