Posted by Hannah O'Brien on Jan 16, 2020 9:35:00 AM

Among the perks of owning a timeshare, traveling the world is one of the best. This is a list of vacation brands and timeshare destinations that should be on your travel bucket list for 2020.

Timeshare Travel Bucket List

If you own a timeshare, you already know that there are a plethora of options available when it comes to travel. Gone are the days of using your timeshare for one week at one resort, year after year. As travel needs have changed over the years, so have the timeshare industry standards. Timeshares are transitioning towards a “vacation club” style of ownership, allowing members to get more out of their vacations.

So, if you own with one of these brands, we’ll clue you in on some great travel bucket list destinations you need to see. If you aren’t part of a vacation club just yet, we recommend checking out our timeshare resales to find a great deal.

Travel Bucket List

Using Vacation Exchange

Curious how to get more out of your timeshare? Vacation exchange is the key. Whether you use an exchange network internally (within your brand) or externally (like RCI and II), there are tons of resorts at your fingertips. We’ll briefly cue you in on how to benefit from vacation exchange and then dive into timeshares for your travel bucket list.

RCI

Resort Condominiums International, now known as RCI, is the world’s largest vacation exchange network. With at least 6,300 resorts in over 110 countries, it’s easy to see why RCI is a top choice. Many vacationers ask if you have to have a timeshare to use RCI, and the answer is yes. In order to exchange on the RCI network, you must have a membership with RCI through your timeshare ownership. Once you own a timeshare, you can get an RCI membership and start experiencing all the benefits of vacation exchange.

Interval International

Another top vacation exchange brand is Interval International, commonly known as II. Through II, members have much of the same benefits as RCI users. What’s the difference? Well, the main difference between the two exchange companies is that they serve different brands. Some brands are only affiliated with one or the other, while a few brands are affiliated with both. Similar to RCI, Interval International is exclusive to vacation owners, so, you must own a timeshare to use Interval’s exchange program. If you own a Marriott timeshare, you can use Interval to exchange, and if you own a Wyndham timeshare, you would use RCI to exchange externally.
