UVC Stands for Universal Vacation Club, which is a long standing timeshare network exchange company that provides services for The Villa Group timeshare owners. In operation for more than 30 years, the vacation club manages the exchanges between the properties developed by The Villa Group such as Villa del Palmar Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas and Loreto as well as Villa del Arco in Cabo San Lucas and Villa del Palmar Flamingos in Riviera Nayarit.
UVC makes it possible for timeshare owners at these resorts to swap weeks for other Villa Group destinations and split your weeks according to your membership status. You can also join international vacation clubs such as RCI and Interval International in order to extend your exchange options globally.
Universal Vacation Club International membership makes sure that your Villagroup timeshare is as flexible as you wish it to be, making vacations more affordable and ensuring the high standards that you expect from a luxury second home. You can take advantage of different types of membership levels, depending on your budget and your vacation needs.
Some owners simply wish to return to the same resort every year, enjoying the comfort of familiarity and a guaranteed good time. In these cases, UVC Fixed Week Membership or Floating Week Membership would be sufficient. If you wish to swap your week for any of the Villagroup resorts, you would need minimally Premier Membership or Gold Membership, which entitles you to stay in one of the resorts that is not your home resort depending on availability. This type of membership also allows you to bank your week for the following year.
The next tier up is Villa Preferred Access that offers a points membership to give owners great flexibility and ease of exchange. In this scheme, your timeshare week is translated into points that you can then split and use as you like in all of the Villagroup properties in accordance with how many points you have. Just like the Gold Membership, you can bank points for following years. This program allows you to select upgraded accommodations as and when you have enough points, meaning for example that you could stay in a more luxurious accommodation for less time or in a smaller suite for longer. There is also a tiered Elite program (Elite Four Star, Elite Five Star and Elite Residence Club) for Villa Preferred Access members, boasting additional advantages in accordance with how many points have been purchased and the length of membership.
A Biennial Membership is available for those who wish to take vacations every other year. In general, this program offers most of the same rights as full members on a biannual basis, although there are some restrictions regarding borrowing and banking weeks.
