  What Makes DVC More Unique Than Other Vacation Ownership Programs

Vacation Planning

 

DVC vacation ownership.jpg

Disney vacation club provides deluxe accommodation and offers the ability to stay at 14 resorts while enjoying attractions at five theme parks and three beach resorts. These remarkable things make the DVC unique and different from other vacation ownership programs.

DVC offers you life-lasting fun and entertainment, but all the fun comes with a price. One of the reasons for this is that DVC Resorts are deluxe accommodations at Disney and are priced accordingly.

Although some may consider DVC a pretty expensive vacation ownership program, there are many ways you can save on becoming a DVC member, like purchasing your DVC contract through a DVC resale program like DVC Sales. Here are some points that prove the uniqueness of DVC over other vacation ownership programs.

DVC Vacation Ownership vs. Other Programs

While comparing it with other timeshare programs, DVC vacation ownership is more than worthwhile for Disney fans. DVC resorts are some of the best-rated properties; maintenance fees stay low, and a thrilling vacation is guaranteed every year. There are two magnificent points about DVC that make it trustworthy and unique. The first point is that it offers you more ability to stay on property at Disney. The second benefit of staying at DVC is the flexibility of the point-based system.

This point-based system is what makes DVC vacation ownership truly unique. By purchasing DVC points, you get to choose when you stay, where you stay, and for how long.

 One another incredible feature is when you own DVC points, you can enjoy these in a year at any time. You are not bound to use those DVC points at a particular season, month, or week. DVC vacation ownership also allows you to bank DVC points for later or borrow points from a future year to use during a current trip. It is a marvelous feature offered by only this ownership program.

Fixed Week & Non-Fixed Week at DVC Resorts

If you want to stay at a specific accommodation for a fixed week of the year (like a traditional timeshare), you have to buy the 10% more than average points needed to stay at the resort during that time. For non-fixed week contracts, you can use your points any time in a year.

DVC Doesn't Charge a Fee for Listing the Points

Other vacation ownership programs charge fees for listing the contract if you want to sell it. But DVC doesn't take charges on listing the DVC point contract. One more difference between DVC and other vacation ownerships is high-pressure sales. DVC doesn't use high-pressure sales tactics. Instead, attention is focused on the value of the program. 

 

We hope this comparison between DVC and other vacation ownership programs helps you decide whether DVC membership is right for you. For more information about becoming a DVC member, check out this article.
