What's the difference between vacation ownership and timeshare?
    Unlike traditional timeshare, we offer the kind of flexibility that allows you to return to your favorite resort every year or travel to new frontiers. With studios to multi-bedroom suites from Orlando to Hawaii, our program gives you the flexibility to create your own itinerary.

Do I really "own" my timeshare?
    Yes, you really do own your timeshare. In fact, most of our resorts offer deeded ownership interest so you can own a piece of your favorite destination.

Do I have to travel to the same place year after year?
    Only if you want to. Return to your favorite destinations every year or explore new horizons. With Hilton Grand Vacations, you'll always have a variety of vacation destinations and experiences to choose from, including our distinctive collection of Hilton Grand Vacations resorts, more than 6,100 hotels and resorts in the Hilton portfolio of brands, 4,300 affiliated resorts through resort vacation exchange privileges at RCI Exchange Resorts and SFX Preferred Resorts, and specialty travel experiences through our ClubPartner Perks travel partners.

Will I be staying in standard hotel-style accommodations?
    Each of our Hilton Grand Vacations resorts feature luxurious accommodations ranging from spacious studios with kitchenettes to multi-bedroom suites with fully equipped kitchens.

Can I afford to become a Hilton Grand Vacations Owner?
    Hilton Grand Vacations offers a variety of vacation ownership options, and our experienced Vacation Counselors can assist you in finding the perfect one to suit your vacation style.

How Ownership Works

Your Home Resort

Vacation ownership entitles you to all the benefits of owning a vacation home without the responsibilities of traditional home ownership. When you become an Owner with Hilton Grand Vacations, you receive a deeded ownership interest at one of our resorts, which becomes your Home Resort.

Your ownership also makes you a Member of Hilton Grand Vacations Club, a point-based reservation system. As an Owner, you receive an annual allotment of ClubPoints each year based on the type of accommodations and season you own at your Home Resort. You have the flexibility to roll over unused ClubPoints, save them for future vacations, or borrow next year's ClubPoints for this year's vacation.

Hilton Grand Vacations Resorts

As a Member, your ClubPoints give you access to the entire collection of Hilton Grand Vacations and partner resorts in unforgettable destinations including California, Hawaii, Colorado, Utah, Florida, South Carolina, New York City and Washington D.C., as well as international locales including Italy, Scotland, Mexico, Barbados, and Japan.

Hilton Honors Membership

Your Hilton Grand Vacations Club Membership automatically enrolls you in the Hilton Honors hotel loyalty program. You may apply ClubPoints toward a variety of distinctive vacation experiences at more than 6,100 resorts and hotels in the Hilton portfolio of brands in more than 118 countries and territories around the world. You'll also enjoy all the other benefits that come with being a Hilton Honors Member, including discounts and savings on travel packages, car rentals, air miles, Experience Rewards, and Amazon purchases.

Resort Exchange

Beyond our collection of Hilton Grand Vacations resorts, you can take advantage of resort exchange privileges. Whether you want to drink in Europe's old-world elegance, experience the peak of mountain adventure, or revel in coastal thrills, you can see the world from a different perspective at thousands of RCI Exchange Resorts and SFX Preferred Resorts across more than 100 countries.
