Posted on May 12, 2023

The concept of timeshare ownership has been around since the 1970s, offering vacationers the opportunity to own a share of a property for a specific period every year. Over time, the industry has evolved, and the once traditional fixed-week timeshare model has given way to the more flexible timeshare points programs.

Timeshare points act as a type of vacation currency, allowing owners to enjoy vacations at multiple destinations and accommodations within a network of timeshare resorts. Owners and members have the flexibility to choose travel dates based on the amount of points they own. In this article, we will explore the best timeshare points programs that offer unparalleled flexibility, value, and experiences.
