Vacationers across the world agree that Bluegreen Vacations timeshares offer experiences you can’t quite find anywhere else. Not to mention, Bluegreen resorts themselves are beautiful. And, the prime locations also delight every type of traveler. With the newest resort in New Orleans, it’s easy to why. Getting to know the perks of becoming a Bluegreen Vacations owner may take you one step closer to finding your home away from home.
About Bluegreen Resorts
The goal of Bluegreen Vacations is to provide high-quality family vacations, each one topping the last. Their 60+ resorts span across the United States and welcome at least 220,000 owners each year. Often known for being budget and family-friendly, taking great vacations is made simple here. Alongside the ability to deliver memorable vacations, Bluegreen specializes in luxury vacations through timeshare, too. Since 1966, this high-tech and environmentally-conscious brand has been helping families make great vacation memories that last.
What is Bluegreen Vacations Club?
The Bluegreen Vacations club is the section under the main brand that specializes in timeshare. Did you know timeshares are mostly points-based now? A points-based timeshare means that each year, owners are given a certain number of points. Bluegreen Vacations offers points-based timeshares! After purchasing points, owners can use their points to book vacations at a variety of Bluegreen’s resorts.
Many people continue associating timeshare with a one-week at one resort-style of vacation, but it’s definitely changed. Offering owners more flexibility is actually what timeshares do best now. If you still love visiting the same resort every year, you totally can, and there are still some weeks-based timeshares out there. Regardless if you love weeks or points, becoming a vacation club member opens up a whole world of other perks.
Step-by-Step: How to Buy a Timeshare
Vacation Exchange Perks for Bluegreen Owners
Like we mentioned above, owners with Bluegreen resorts can exchange their points for vacations within the brand. In addition to this, many Bluegreen resorts are RCI affiliates which means you can also exchange your points for vacations outside of Bluegreen on the RCI vacation network. Other brands that are on the network with RCI include Wyndham, Disney Vacation Club, Hilton and Holiday Inn Club.

Bluegreen Travel Plus members can exchange their points for shorter vacations. With RCI nightly stays and a Travel Plus Membership, you can even book just one night stays up to ten months in advance!

Hot Weeks Getaways
