Can Vistana owners use Marriott Vacation Club?
Yes. Owners in the Vistana Signature Network can now use their ownership to access Marriott hotels and resorts worldwide through the SPG program.
A timeshare is a single property you visit year after year. The timeshare company lets you vacation there at preset times, usually a week or two each year. To join vacation clubs, you pay an initial membership fee. After that, you pay monthly or yearly membership and maintenance fees.
As such, World International Vacation Club timeshare owners can choose to purchase an annual membership to RCI, Interval International, or both. While World International Vacation Club gives you a great selection of travel options, you can travel virtually anywhere with the help of external exchange.
A deed back clause or program allows you to give your timeshare back to the resort. Until then, you remain responsible for paying the maintenance and special assessment fees along with your mortgage payments.
Costs to Get Out of a Timeshare On average, it costs about $5,000 to $6,000 and takes 12–18 months to get out of your timeshare contract using a timeshare exit company. But the cost and the timeframe can vary depending on a number of factors including, how many contracts are attached to your timeshare.

How much does Marriott Vacation Club cost?
Vacation Club Points packages begin at approximately $23,500. If you purchase from the comfort of your home, you will receive the best available incentives and savings. Additional closing costs apply. Annual ownership association fees and club dues are required.
Some people just stop paying on their timeshares. If you do walk away, don’t be surprised to see a big hit to your credit score and to start getting regular calls from collection agencies. You might regret your purchase, but you did sign a legally binding contract.
If you stop paying it, the timeshare company will do whatever it takes to collect. They’ll make phone calls and send letters, then they’ll assign it over to (you guessed it) a collections company. If you still don’t pay, the situation sinks even further into foreclosure and possible legal action against you.
