What is timeshare and vacation ownership?
Timeshare, or vacation ownership, is a system of shared ownership of a vacation home, condominium or resort. In an older, more restrictive timeshare model, owners would purchase a particular week of ownership of a specific property. With WorldMark, you have the right to use any of the units in any of the more than 60 WorldMark resorts at any time of year, according to owner-approved guidelines and rules. Plus, you own the right to use WorldMark resorts (your credits) for life, and can pass them down to your children.

How is WorldMark different from other timeshare programs?
WorldMark is a pure credit-based timeshare product that allows you to vacation where, when and how long you want, within the WorldMark system of resorts. In contrast, a traditional fixed-week timeshare program requires you to purchase a specific unit in a specific resort for a specific period each year. With WorldMark, you have maximum flexibility.
There are other point- or credit-based systems, but they are based on the traditional and restrictive timeshare model (you would still purchase a specific unit in a specific resort for a specific period each year-usually a week, which is then converted to points to facilitate trades for time at other resorts).
WorldMark ownership isn't tied to a specific size unit or resort. You can use your vacation credits at any of the more than 60 WorldMark resorts without having to pay an exchange fee or managing a trading procedure.
Moreover, you can be assured WorldMark by Wyndham and WorldMark, The Club will be around for a long time to come. WorldMark by Wyndham is one of the largest vacation ownership companies in the world. Being part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of companies provides a strong brand our customers can count on, and it allows us to make additional benefit programs available to WorldMark owners, outside of the WorldMark system.
