If you have bought a timeshare at one of the Villagroup’s Villa del Palmar resorts, then you will have probably already heard of Villa Preferred Access. Essentially, it is a vacation club style points scheme that timeshare owners join in order to be able to swap accommodations throughout the Villa del Palmar inventory of timeshare properties.
When people bought timeshare weeks in the past, what would happen is that you bought the rights to your property for the same week every year. What Villa Preferred Access offers is the opportunity to exchange that fixed week for points that you can then use in a more flexible manner. Nowadays when you buy a timeshare at Villa del Palmar, you will be offered the points scheme rather than the fixed timeshare week.
There are many benefits to Villa Preferred Access, although the main one would be flexibility. Your timeshare purchase is given a point value which you can use towards vacation accommodations at anytime of the year and in any type of accommodation, so long as you have enough points and your membership status allows. What this means in practical terms is that you can split your timeshare week and take two shorter vacations every year or bank your points and spend a longer vacation the following year.
The other main advantage of Villa Groups’ Preferred Access scheme is that you can transfer your points to an international vacation club such as Interval International, meaning that you will be able to reserve accommodations throughout the world or even on cruise ships.
Joining a points scheme like Villa Preferred Access means that it is even easier to upgrade as your finances evolve over time. More points allows for more luxury and even more options. You can also take advantage of discounts and other benefits that vacation clubs offer.
