If you are a timeshare owner, or are thinking you want to buy a timeshare, you may have run across the “1-in-4” Rule. Hilton Grand Vacations Club timeshare (HGVC) is one of the resorts that enforces the “1-in-4” Rule and if you are a Hilton timeshare owner or buying HGVC timeshare, you will want to understand this rule and how it could effect your vacation planning.

In the most simplified explanation, the 1-in-4 Rule at Hilton Grand Vacations Club means you cannot use RCI to book a HGVC timeshare vacation at the same resort more than once in four years. However, even the simple explanation is not always easy to understand.

If you are a HGVC member, you can book at your preferred Hilton Grand Vacations Club resort as many times and as often as availability and your Hilton timeshare points will permit. This form of booking your Hilton timeshare vacation means you use the Hilton Grand Vacations internal reservations system.

But how does the rule apply if you are not a Hilton timeshare member?

You can book your Hilton timeshare vacation through RCI and even though you are booking more than one week, if you book consecutive weeks, your booking will only count as one usage at that resort.

Also, you can even book non-consecutive weeks at a Hilton timeshare through RCI and it will  count as one booking, if you book the weeks at the same time. For example: you could book at the same Hilton Grand Vacations Club timeshare resort  for a winter ski vacation and to return to the same resort for a summer vacation, as long as you book both trips during the same call or online booking session.
