Club reservations allow you to reserve at any HGVC location within the club’s affiliated resorts, as opposed to only traveling to your home resort. This flexibility is beneficial in the event you choose to travel to a new destination. With club reservations, there is a required three-night minimum stay, so it will be a benefit primarily for longer vacation plans.

Open Season reservations are beneficial for more spontaneous or last minute travel planning. These allow you to make reservations starting 30 days before your check-out date and up to a day prior to your actual check-in date. This carries with it a two-night minimum stay requirement, with RCI resorts needing a three-night minimum stay.
