Frequently Asked Questions
What is a timeshare?
A timeshare interest is shared usage that gives you the opportunity to vacation every year. When you purchase a timeshare, you may enjoy time, typically a week or less, at a vacation resort that is included within the program.
Timeshare products vary from company to company. Some offer weeks, points or a combination of both. Also, many timeshares give you the flexibility to exchange your week for time at many resorts.
Why do people purchase timeshare?
One of the main reasons people purchase a timeshare interest is that it helps to make vacationing easier throughout their lives. Learn more about the benefits of timeshare ownership and what sets Marriott Vacation Club apart from other timeshare companies.
