ORLANDO, Fla. – January 3, 2011 – Marriott Vacation Club, the premier timeshare brand of Marriott International, (NYSE: MAR), announced today the introduction of the points-based Marriott Vacation Club Destinations program to its Owners and customers in Mexico, Central and South America. Building on over 25 years of innovation, evolution and industry leadership, the Marriott Vacation Club Destinations program offers greater flexibility, further personalization and more experience opportunities for Owners.
“We’re excited to expand this offering to our current and future Owners in Mexico, Central and South America. We’ve already seen an exceptional response over the past six months with our North American launch,” said Lee Cunningham, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Marriott Vacation Club, North America and the Caribbean. “This program was built upon a tradition of Owner involvement and reflects a broad variety of vacationing options and added flexibility that makes it very appealing.”
Annually, Marriott Vacation Club Destinations Owners will receive an allocation of Vacation Club Points to redeem for customized getaway experiences. They will also have the ability to bank, borrow, transfer and purchase additional Vacation Club Points each year. In addition, the new program provides Owners the services of a personal Vacation Ownership Advisor to assist in travel arrangements within any one of the four Vacation Collections.
