Vacation Clubs vs. Timeshares

What is the difference between a vacation club and a timeshare? 

Vacation clubs give you access to discounted vacation packages from a list of possible destinations and travel dates. The consumer pays an initial membership fee followed by monthly or yearly membership and maintenance fees. A timeshare is a single property you visit year after year, typically at a pre-determined dates throughout the year. You purchase the timeshare, then pay maintenance fees. 

Vacation club complaints: Can be filed with Nevada Consumer Affairs if the business is located in Nevada, or the Federal Trade Commission.

Timeshare complaints: Can be filed with the Nevada Real Estate Division.
