Convert Your Timeshare Week into WOW Experience Points

Now, Westgate Owners can convert their timeshare week, or weeks, into World of Westgate (WOW) Experience Points.

These points can be used as full or partial payment to book cruise vacations through the Westgate Cruise & Travel Collection, our exclusive members-only travel club.

This club already provides our Owners with great discounts and perks on non-Westgate travel, and now, it’s getting even better!

Complimentary Membership for WOW Owners

As a special bonus, all World of Westgate (WOW) Loyalty Owners from Silver to Elite now receive a complimentary membership with the Westgate Cruise & Travel Collection.

That means we cover the $249 annual membership fee, ensuring you continue to enjoy travel savings without any additional costs.

The fantastic complimentary benefits of the World of Westgate (WOW) Loyalty Program just keep on coming!

How to Get Started: Booking Your Cruise

Ready to embark on your adventure? Here’s how it works:

1. Select a Cruise: Head over to your Westgate Cruise & Travel account to explore thousands of international cruise options. The required WOW Experience Points for each cruise and any additional balance needed will be displayed.

2. Convert Your Timeshare: Contact Westgate at 855-892-3337 to convert your timeshare week(s) into WOW Experience Points and pay the Developer Exchange Fee of $169.

3. Book Your Cruise: Once your points are activated in your account, you’re all set to book your dream cruise using your WOW Experience Points as payment. You’ll have 12 months, with no blackout dates, to make a cruise reservation with your points.

It’s important to note that your WOW Experience Points must be applied in full toward a specific cruise booking. Any remaining points will be credited to your Westgate Cruise & Travel account for future use.

Timeshare Week(s) Eligibility

An important date to remember is April 1. If you’re looking to use your timeshare week(s) to book a cruise with Westgate Cruise & Travel, you have to convert your current year week(s) into WOW Experience Points before April 1 of each calendar year. After April 1, you can convert the following year’s week(s).

Please note that you must pay your Maintenance Fee for a future year to convert that year’s week(s).

As an exception for the first year of this program, we’re extending the date to convert 2024 weeks to October 1, 2024.

Owners are encouraged to review available cruises before exchanging their timeshare week(s) for this cruise option. Once converted, WOW Experience Points cannot be changed back.

So, pack your suntan lotion and oversized hat because you’re about to cruise in style!
