right to use


A type of timeshare where, rather than actually owning the property, you reserve the use of it in advance.

With right to use, you typically reserve the use of the property over a long period, such as 50 years.

Some right to use resorts assign you a specific week of the year at a specific property. This may be the same week each year, or may change from year-to-year.

Other resorts give you 'points', which are used to reserve a unit and week of your choice. More desirable units and weeks cost more points, sometimes more than you are given in one year. To get the nicest units you may have to accumulate points over time, or pay the difference.

Contrast with fractional ownership.
