A.  We receive hundreds of rental inquiries for Marriott Vacation Club resorts each month and by checking availability we are able to provide rental quotes to travelers at below Marriott.com published rates. Upon remittance of payment by the lessee and completion the rental transaction, we fund the owner.

A. In many ways, it’s not, the big difference is that we are able to market and rent to travelers who request vacation stays that don’t meet the customary 7-night weekend-to-weekend timeshare stay. Some examples of this: an inquiry for four nights at a particular resort, another inquiry for an eleven night stay, or an inquiry for seven nights with beginning with a Wednesday check-in. We simply leverage the inherent flexibility of the Destination Club program to meet the rental demand that has previously not been met by the traditional inventory offering.

 

A. We specialize in strategically reserving the best and highest demanded weeks of the year using points. We have done the analysis and choose the best value bookings to minimize the points used and maximize net funds to the owner. By doing so we greatly increase the probability of successfully renting with the best points/net dollar ratio.

 

A. In a manner of speaking, we pay out $.58 for each point that we use in a rental. As an example, if we took 5000 points from your account to reserve a seven night stay @ Marriott’s Frenchman’s Cove we would net you .58 of the point amount, or $2900.

We are also working on a program that will pay out $.48 to owners that prefer to monetize their points immediately instead of waiting until the rental transaction is completed (certain restrictions apply).

A. Generally, at the completion of the transaction. If the rental check-in date is greater than six months from the present we may elect to charge the renter a 50% nonrefundable deposit with balance due 90 days prior to check in. We would remit you 50% of the payment with balance due 90 days prior to check in.

We are also working on a program that will pay out $.48 to owners that prefer to monetize their points immediately instead of waiting until the rental transaction is completed (certain restrictions apply).

A. All of our rental agreements contain a non-cancel clause with no refund policy. We always recommend trip cancellation insurance to our potential renters.

A. Sure, you are entitled to do so, however, most of our clients neither have the time nor inclination and prefer to let us handle their rental portfolio given our level of expertise. We find most clients are busy enough with their work and family and simply prefer to delegate this task to us.
