There is scientific proof that vacations make people happier - so it is reasonable to conclude that the more vacations you take, the happier you are likely to be! If you are looking for consistent and momentous vacations that come with the predictability of knowing when, where and how long your getaway will be each year, Vacation Ownership is the answer.

Westgate Resorts offers three Vacation Ownership options; Fixed, Float and Fixed Event. Each ultimately carves out a vacation experience which can be booked based on the year owned.

Fixed Ownership: Fixed Owners are deeded a specific week each year. This is a standing reservation for a specific unit at a certain resort. For example, John may own a studio at the Westgate South Beach Resort. As an Owner, he is always entitled to using this unit at the resort based on usage year. To use his week, he will simply call a Vacation Specialist to make the necessary arrangements.

Float Ownership: Float Owners enjoy the flexibility of using their week at any time of the year based on availability. This means that though they are deeded a week and unit each year, usage will vary by time used and unit. For example, if Mary Kay owns a 2-bedroom unit at the Westgate Vacation Villas, she would be able to reserve a 2-bedroom unit at the resort for 7-days based on the year that is owned. She would simply call a Vacation Specialist to reserve the desired time based on availability.

Fixed Event Ownership: The Fixed Event Ownership option combines the predictability of the Fixed Ownership with the flexibility of the Float Ownership. This week is guaranteed at the home resort but subject to availability if used at another property or timeframe. Fixed Event Ownership, known for its holiday weeks, is also a fantastic option for family get-togethers, reunions and other events which can be planned for a specific time based on usage year.

In all instances, reservation preference is given to Owners who use a banked week to stay at their home resort. For example, if Mary K tries to reserve a week at a unit in the resort she was deeded, she would enjoy priority over John’s attempt to exchange his week from Westgate South Beach.

Vacation Owners are also given the opportunity to reserve their time up to 11 months in advance or last minute at 24 hours prior to the desired date. Since reservations are subject to availability, this allowance is a great opportunity to secure the ideal booking.
