Points can be thought of as virtual currency that you can redeem for vacations throughout the year.
The opposite of week-based ownerships, point systems offer owners the flexibility to travel at a network of resorts, at different times of the year. Also, points timeshares allow the choice between more frequent, shorter trips or fewer but longer trips.
This is different from week-based timeshares in that you won’t be limited to one resort or location, in many cases points can be used at a network of resorts within you vacation club allowing unparalleled flexibility in planning your trips
Also, you won’t need to worry about buying a certain week number or bedroom size, you just have to make sure you have enough points to book the reservations you want
