Your Go-To Guide On How Hilton Grand Vacations ClubPoints Work

Welcome to the new era of timeshare travel

The Vacationeer

Timeshare has transformed over the years. Gone are the days of being locked in to one destination or set travel dates. Now, freedom and flexibility reign supreme. And with the Hilton Grand Vacations points-based reservation system, you have the power to see the world differently.

Here’s an overview of how HGV ClubPoints work, and how you can use them to travel when, where and how you like.

Understanding The Basics Of Hilton Grand Vacations ClubPoints         

When you become a Hilton Grand Vacations Member, you purchase an annual allotment of ClubPoints, which are your travel currency in our points-based reservation. You can use these points to book everything from quick weekend trips and week-long escapes to international adventures and one-of-a-kind experiences.

Here are a few examples of how points can take you further:

  • Set sail on your dream cruise.
  • Vacation in style with a luxury home rental.
  • Take a guided tour through New Orleans along the Mississippi River.
  • Make the horizon your destination with a private yacht charter.
  • Hit the open road with an RV rental.
  • Enjoy wild encounters on your first African safari.
  • Return to your favorite resort for your annual family getaway.
  • Explore the more than 150 Hilton Grand Vacations destinations.
  • Plan a last-minute trip to Las Vegas for mini adventure.  

Embrace The Power Of A Points Strategy         

One of the best parts of a points-based vacation membership is that your points are renewed every year, and you can upgrade at any time. You decide how many points you need based on your personal travel style — and you control how they’re used.

"Hello Carlsbad, hello Hurghada, hello Swiss Alps, hello Paris, hello Las Vegas. Traveling from one gorgeous location to the next was a dream come true. Do I like my ClubPoints? Starting with 12,000 and now being at 100,000 ClubPoints today says it all."

Use, Save Or Borrow Points

Options are everything when it comes to your points strategy. Use them all to book the trips of your choice throughout the year, save some or all of your points for later use, or borrow points from future years to take your dream trip right now.

"Once we were familiar with our Hilton Grand Vacations membership, we realized we could combine points from several years to reserve our stay in Italy. Suddenly, exploring all the must-see sights in Tuscany became our reality."

There’s a reason Hilton Honors™ membership is one of the top benefits of Hilton Grand Vacations timeshare. As a Member, you can convert your ClubPoints to Hilton Honors Points and access the Hilton portfolio of 7,200 hotels and resorts worldwide. You can also use your Hilton Honors points to book other travel services like flights and car rentals.

Hilton Grand Vacations Members also have the option to deposit points with RCI® Exchange. This expands your vacations options tremendously by giving you access to an additional 4,200 RCI® Exchange resorts worldwide.         

Insider tip: RCI allows points to be banked for an additional two years, further extending the life of your points.
