Marriott Vacation Club brings points-based program to Latin America

LATIN AMERICA Marriott International is launching its points-based Marriott Vacation Club Destinations program in Mexico, Central America and South America, offering more flexibility for its timeshare owners.

“We’re excited to expand this offering to our current and future owners in Mexico, Central and South America. We’ve already seen an exceptional response over the past six months with our North American launch,” says Lee Cunningham, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Marriott Vacation Club, North America and the Caribbean. “This program was built upon a tradition of owner involvement and reflects a broad variety of vacationing options and added flexibility that makes it very appealing.”

Marriott Vacation Club Destinations owners will receive an annual allocation of points redeemable for customized getaway experiences. They will also have the ability to bank, borrow, transfer and purchase additional points each year. The new program also provides owners with the services of personal advisors to assist with travel arrangements.

Participating countries include Argentina, Barbados, Bermuda, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Curacao, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Jamaica, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela.
