Hi my name is David from selling timeshares dot net, and today I’ll be walking you through how you can get the most out of your Hilton timeshare by making sure you never lose your HGVC points due to expiration. Later in the video we’ll be showing you a resource that helps you quickly understand the timeshare key terms used in this video and many more. So, let’s get started…
First, rescuing is the ability to save your current year’s points and roll them over into the following year. This is a nice benefit if you have some leftover points that you are just not sure what to do with, but does have the drawback of losing the ability to be used for anything except for booking HGVC resorts, leaving out guided journeys, hilton honors, and exchanging your points.
Banking is a bit similar, but has some important differences. With banking, you are able to save next years points for another calendar year, giving you 2 full years to budget and plan ahead for your next vacation, without the risk of points expiring. Banking can also sometimes be used as an interchangeable term for depositing your week or points into RCI for safe keeping, which is also available to you, as an HGVC owner.
Converting your Hilton Club Points is something else entirely. Due to the club’s strong ties with Hilton Hotels & Resorts, HGVC allows you to convert your timeshare points into Hilton Hhonors points for use at Hilton Hotels across the globe. This feature is exclusive to HGVC timeshares and is available to you whether you purchase at a presentation, or buy your account on the resale market.
