Vacation ownership is a period of time (days or weeks per year) that you can buy for a specific property (usually a residence at a resort) or multi-destination club, during which the right-to-use the property belongs to you. The idea is that you benefit by "pre-paying" for a vacation place rather than renting it, as you might otherwise do. The profit that would have gone to the rental stays in your pocket. Under a Vacation ownership plan you agree to a one-time purchase price and an annual maintenance fee, Vacation ownership purchasers own their accommodation time and purchase the right-to-use it for a specified number of years.

How does vacation ownership work?
The overall concept of vacation ownership is relatively simple. There are two basic types: right-to-use and fee simple.
In a right-to-use vacation ownership you are essentially taking a lease on a property, usually for one to two weeks a year, for a specific period of time (generally 15 years to 50 years, or for the lifetime of the owner). You can think of this kind of vacation ownership as similar to booking a cottage rental in advance, except that in most cases you can rent, give away, or sell your time to someone else whenever you like.
These vacation ownership typically involve both a purchase price and an annual maintenance fee. Some of these operate on a "points" system where you can book vacations in different locations.
