How did you first learn about Hilton Grand Vacations?

In 2017, Claude and his wife were on vacation in Puerto Rico when they attended a Hilton Grand Vacations sales presentation. Claude was determined to say no. “I told my wife that no matter what, our answer would be no. However, the sales representative showed us the endless opportunities for vacations, and I began to imagine future holidays with Hilton Grand Vacations,” he said.

All of his dream trips were suddenly possible.

Claude continued, “We decided to become Members because it made sense. My wife and I enjoyed traveling and wanted to explore places outside of the United States. We saw how we could travel and stay in hotels inexpensively. I became excited to join the Hilton Grand Vacations community.” He is just one of the many Members who’ve fallen in love with Hilton Grand Vacations' signature hospitality and gorgeous resorts.

What do you enjoy most about vacation ownership?

For Claude, the best part of vacation ownership is how easy vacations are to plan. “I can choose where I want to travel and use HGV ClubPoints for the entire stay. The booking process is user-friendly, and there’s always someone from Hilton Grand Vacations willing to walk me through the process.”

"I enjoy worry-free planning when I travel. I can choose a destination with Hilton Grand Vacations and know I’ll be in a comfortable and safe environment."

He added, “Another perk that interested me in 2017 was the Hilton Honors™ American Express card.” The card is one way Hilton Honors Members can earn free night certificates to use with the Hilton portfolio of brands.

Claude continues to savor his vacation opportunities and treasure memories of his past vacations. “One of my most memorable vacations with Hilton Grand Vacations is the vacation me and my wife, Renée, spent in Las Vegas.”

What would you say to someone who’s on the fence about timeshare with Hilton Grand Vacations?

“I would tell anyone hesitant about owning with Hilton Grand Vacations that you’ll never have to worry about where to stay. You will only need to decide where you want to go,” Claude said. With over 150 properties around the world (and new resorts coming soon), your imagination is the only limit to your vacation possibilities.
