Owner requests a desired date from the timeshare resort every year subject to availability at the time of request.
Owner does not own a fixed week but rather must call each year and make a reservation. The months during which owner may reserve varies by resort. In some resorts owners may reserve year around, others are limited to certain periods, known as the "reservation period". Before buying a floating-time resort, be sure you know the reservation period. See Timeshare Principals in our Timeshare Guide for full explanation.
Weeks are not fixed every year but the timeshare owners can call their resort and request a week of their choice.
You reserve your time period within the appropriate season annually. Many resort maintain a High, Medium, and Low Season.
A floating week may be used any time during the calendar year based on a resort's availability. Typically, resorts will accept requests for specific weeks by the interval owner as soon as the annual maintenance fees are paid. Therefore, the earlier the maintenance fees are paid the better the chance that the owner can pick a specific interval week.
See Float week above
Depending on the timeshare resort's availability, the timeshare owner can use the timeshare during any week of the season purchased. If a timeshare week is in high-season, the owner can reserve any comparable week in the high-season that is available.
A floating week is one where you contact the resort to book a reservation within the time frame of the season you own. This timeshare booking is done on the basis of availability so, to ensure the best possible choices, it is a good idea to reserve your time as far in advance as possible. A High Season Week is designated by the resort as the time that they have the greatest demand for use of their timeshares. Back to the top
