The same week each and every year at your timesharing resort.

Floating Week

This lets you choose the week of your choice, based on availability.

Lockout Unit

A unit which has the capability of being divided to create two separate but complete units. If an owner buys a lockout unit, he/she can divide the unit and either stay in one half of the unit and rent the other half or rent both.

Maintenance Fee

Maintenance fees are established and collected to maintain the timeshare resort, pay insurance, utilities, taxes and etc. These fees vary from resort and with the type and size of the timeshare unit purchased.

Points

Redeem for daily stamps, weeks and getaways. Resorts offer this type of program to owners who allow the owners to choose and control over when and where they vacation or for how long or short they stay. Instead of staying for a week, owners can stay for 3 days, 4 days or stay just for the weekend getaway.

Right to use

No deed. (It's just like leasing a car for x amount of years). After the lease is over you do not own any property. Occupancy rights for a specified number of years, with no ownership interest in the property.
