SherpaReport’s Guide to Luxury Vacation Clubs

SheraReport, an independent source for information about luxury travel clubs, recently released a comprehensive guide titled Destination Clubs: A Guide for Prospective Members.

Destinations Clubs operate similar to a points-based timeshare. You must pay an initial cost to join the club, then an annual fee to remain a member. Once you join, you’ll have access to a variety of accommodations and destinations.

However, while timeshare typically offer condominium-style accommodations these clubs offer full vacation homes. Many of the homes are luxury, designer homes set in some of the world’s most exotic locations. Another perk that comes with a destination club is a travel planner. Depending on the type of membership, you may have a personal travel advisor to plan activities and meals so you won’t have to lift a finger.

This is the eighth year that SherpaReport has released the destinations clubs guide and it is free for consumers. The guide provides great detail about vacation clubs including their business model, types of membership, and tips for selecting the right membership for your needs. With this guide, not only will you learn more about destination/vacation clubs, but you can feel more comfortable about joining one.

Travel Clubs like the ones described in SherpaReport’s guide offer access to some of the most luxurious accommodations in the world. You can visit destinations such as Cabo, New York, and Aspen in style.

President of SherpaReport, Nick Copley said, “The prior year versions have helped thousands of people with their luxury vacation club research. We’ve done the research to help people compare and contrast the different clubs. After reading the guide, members can choose the best club for themselves and their families.”
