How to Use Your HGV Points: Our Top 10 Picks

The Vacationeer

Hilton Grand Vacations is anything but ordinary. Spacious accommodations. Front desk concierge service. Amenities. Activities. Proximity to see all that your destination has to offer. Hilton Grand Vacations properties offer travelers everything they’ve ever wanted to make traveling first class and low stress. But wait! There is so much more! Since HGV isn’t your typical timeshare company, our Owners also have access to endless ideas for how to use their versatile HGV points.

What exactly are ClubPoints?

ClubPoints are tied to the timeshare ownership you purchase. If you purchased a condo unit in Las Vegas, you receive a certain amount of points. Hilton Grand Vacations isn’t a traditional timeshare, it is a points-based system that gives you the flexibility to reserve your vacation the way you want. You can use your ownership points to travel to any HGV property you’d like.

Besides Club Resorts, What else can I do with my ClubPoints ?

In addition to using your ClubPoints at Hilton Grand Vacations properties worldwide, you also have access to pretty much anything you can imagine in the realm of travel. ClubPartner Perks is where you can discover all of the ways to trade your points.

Let us count the ways you can use your HGV points to travel the world:

1. Cruises

ClubPartner Perks cruise travel options through CruisesOnly, the HGV Club cruise partner, include all major cruise lines and a “best price guarantee” commitment. You can even attend one of two annual HGV Member Grand Adventure cruises. So you can set sail with other HGV members in a luxurious vacation of a lifetime.  

2. Convert Your HGV Points to Hilton Honors for Hotels and Amazon Purchases

You can easily exchange your HGV points to stay at any Hilton property in the family of brands. Hilton, Doubletree, Waldorf, Embassy, Hampton, Curio, and more, are available to you. You can even use your Honors points to shop on Amazon! So if you aren’t able to travel one year, simply convert your points to Honors and use them for anything you need (or want!) on Amazon.

3. Airline Travel & Car Rental

You can use your points to pay for your flights and car rental.

Tip: even if you aren’t using points, you can still call a reservation agent for Hilton Grand Vacations Travel to book your transportation. These agents have access to real-time availability and competitive pricing for most major airlines.

4. Adventure Travel

You can arrange an adventure vacation through OARS, a trusted worldwide company that excels in guiding visitors through extraordinary natural wonders. Choose from a range of activities including luxury camping, rafting, wine tasting, cooking, horseback riding, and more. You have an array of destinations to journey to from the Arctic to the Amazon.

5. Guided Adventures

According to our Club Counselors, guided adventures have become very popular in recent years. TAUCK Guided Journeys reveal the essence of each destination through first-hand experience, exclusive access, and exploration of the area’s history, culture, cuisine, and more. You can choose from more than 100 extraordinary travel experiences to discover the world in unforgettable ways.

6. Houseboat

Bring your family and friends aboard a deluxe Forever Resorts houseboat and set course for a vacation on the open water. This is such a great opportunity to explore the great outdoors and still have all of the amenities of home.

7. Motorcycle

An adventure on the open road can happen aboard an EagleRider motorcycle rental. The rental fleet includes manufacturers such as Harley-Davidson, Honda, and BMW. You can reedem your points for an EagleRider gift card that will never expire and can be used for any EagleRider reservation or merchandise.

8. RV

Adventure options continue with the ability to use your points to rent an El Monte RV. You can truly design your own vacation! Plan a round-trip itinerary or pair your motorhome journey with airline travel.

9. Yacht

If you are looking for the ultimate, once-in-a-lifetime adventure, consider booking a private yacht with The Moorings. You can either captain the yacht yourself or hire a crew with a professional captain, and even your own gourmet chef. What can beat catching a fish on the stern and having it prepared to eat that night?

10. Urban Attractions

You never want to spend valuable vacation time waiting in ticketing lines at popular attractions. Instead, use your HGV points towards Smart Destinations Go City Cards and Explorer Passes. These attraction passes give you access to top museums, tours, and attractions – including the San Diego Zoo, Pearl Harbor Historical City Tour in Oahu, and the Empire State Building in New York City.

Any Tips on Converting Points?

Yes! The earlier you convert your points, the better conversion ratio you will receive. We recommend a conversion a year in advance. So since it is 2018, you can convert your 2019 points for the optimal ratio based on your ownership by the end of 2018. 

Owners can convert their points either via the website or over the phone. Our Club Counselors are available to assist you Monday – Friday 8am to midnight EST, and Saturdays 8am to 8pm EST.  

You Own a World of Travel

Hilton Grand Vacations is on a mission to reboot the term ‘timeshare.’ We are so much more than the traditional timeshare concept. As an Owner, you truly have access to use your HGV points on almost anything you can think of in the world of travel. Have you converted your points for an unforgettable vacation experience? We would love to hear your story!
