Mike and Mary G. have enjoyed the benefits of timeshare for years and have no plans to slow down any time soon. As Trust Collection Members who recently upgraded to HGV Max Premier, they’re excited about what the future holds. 

"We love traveling to various destinations and like the flexibility Hilton Grand Vacations timeshare offers. It’s like owning a vacation home all over the world!"

— Mike G., Member Since 2005 

The couple’s reason for upgrading to HGV Max was simple: they wanted the opportunity to visit new destinations and stay at Hilton Grand Vacations properties. “The HGV properties are more upscale, and we felt if we didn’t, we would miss out on a great opportunity,” explained Mike.

Members who join HGV Max can enjoy more properties in more destinations and receive attractive discounts across the Hilton portfolio of brands. 

“We look forward to using our HGV Max ownership over the next few years,” he said. The destinations topping their HGV Max travel bucket list are Scotland, Portugal and Barbados. However, the pair also travel using Destination Xchange regularly.

Destination Xchange* provides convenience, flexibility and various travel options to fit your travel style to maximize vacation ownership.

The couple has traveled using Destination Xchange 10 times and recalled memorable vacations as trips to the Outer Banks in Duck and Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina.

“We also stayed at Bass Lake in Yosemite, where we really enjoyed kayaking and hiking. Yosemite was fantastic! We were so glad to see the huge Sequoias. The park is stunning and beyond words,” said Mike.

Mike and Mary are also winter sports enthusiasts and plan vacations filled with snowmobiling and alpine skiing. They’re planning powder-filled vacations to Vermont and Maine this winter using Destination Xchange. 

Finally, one of the most significant benefits of timeshare is the opportunity to make memories and share the gift of travel with loved ones.

"We’ve traveled with family and friends using timeshare, and everyone really enjoyed it. Several family members have also used our points over the years. Everyone pitched in to help offset our cost."

— Mike G., Member Since 2005
