Marriott Vacations Worldwide, a leader in leisure travel with a portfolio of trusted, globally-recognised travel brands and vacation clubs, is set to debut a new Owner benefit and exchange program this summer.
Abound by Marriott Vacations ("Abound") comes at a time when spending on leisure travel is forecasted to reach $1.7 trillion by 2027. The program is developed to offer more destinations, brands, and options that make vacationing even better for all travellers, particularly Millennials, who represent nearly a quarter of the company's first-time vacation ownership buyers.
Abound by Marriott Vacations™ features access to more than 90 vacation club resorts across Marriott Vacation Club, Sheraton Vacation Club and Westin Vacation Club, over 8,000 Marriott Bonvoy hotels, and 2,000 vacation homes. It also provides access to 2,000 unique experiences such as premiere events, cruises, guided and culinary tours, outdoor adventures and more with a continued ability to exchange via a premier exchange partner, Interval International.
"We are incredibly excited to debut Abound by Marriott Vacations, which is our gateway for enrolled vacation Owners to embark on exceptional travel adventures around the globe, helping them make a lifetime of meaningful vacation moments with those they care about most," said John E. Geller, Jr., President of Marriott Vacations Worldwide.
While each property available within the Abound portfolio offers its own distinctive brand and sense of location, together, they give travellers abundant experiences and access, which people value as part of their life experience.
At launch, travellers interested in learning more will soon be able to visit a new website providing a summary of available experiences, information on the benefits of vacation ownership, features of each resort, and an inspirational blog with travel advice and ideas.
