FAQS

Will I really get my requested inventory every time I go on vacation?
Renaissance Travel Membership can NOT guarantee your requested inventory as it is based on availability. With this said, our members have the ability to request their inventory from 72 hours up to one full year in advance. The private Vacation Club has been satisfying their members since 1986. If you are concerned whether or not there will be inventory available, contact us to schedule a private tour of the membership site.
How nice are the resorts?
The majority of resorts are listed as 4 and 5 star quality. As a member you will find some rare 3 star properties which are clearly marked on the membership site. These rooms are not rooms facing brick walls, but rather prime views in 1,2, or 3 bedroom suites. Suites usually include a full kitchen, living area, and laundry. Weekly room rates (includes all taxes) range between $298 - $799 per week....never more. There are no hidden costs....everything is up front and guaranteed.

How can Renaissance Travel Membership charge so little for a 5 star resort?
It's simple, all major resorts hate empty rooms! To help fill rooms, specials are offered to exclusive members through companies like Renaissance Travel Membership called "excess inventory".
Back-end revenue!
Keeping high occupancy rates has several benefits. The resorts still have revenue coming in, even if the rates are discounted.  And, the most significant benefit is the "back-end" revenue. The resorts make a lot of money from their restaurants, bars, activities, spas, souvenir shops, etc.
