UVCI are the initials of Universal Vacation Club International, which is a leading network for timeshare exchange founded in 1984. The primary focus of the vacation club is to facilitate and manage exchanges between the beachfront vacation resorts of The Villagroup. The company is a nonprofit mutual benefit corporation that allows owners of Villa del Palmar properties to swap their weeks or points for other destinations owned by The Villa Group. The availability of exchanges will depend on the level of membership purchased or any restrictions associated with the type of property bought.
While Universal Vacation Club International deals with exchanges between the Villagroup properties, members also have the opportunity of accessing Interval International and RCI vacation clubs which enable members to exchange their properties worldwide, making your timeshare completely flexible.
The resorts where you can exchange your Villagroup timeshare through UVCI are: Villa del Palmar Cabo and Villa del Arco Cabo, Villa del Palmar Cancun, Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta, Villa del Mar Puerto Vallarta, Villa del Palmar Flamingos Riviera Nayarit and Villa del Palmar Loreto.
Joining Universal Vacation Club International guarantees a lifetime of wonderful vacation experiences in accommodations that welcome you like you are returning home.
There are various ways to use your Universal Vacation Club International membership. For example, if you have FIXED WEEK MEMBERSHIP you can use your specific unit during your allocated week, while FLOATING WEEK MEMBERSHIP means you can stay in your timeshare during a specified season or period. You can also choose BIENNIAL MEMBERSHIP, which conveniently allows you to alternate the years when you use your membership benefits.
Becoming a PREMIER MEMBER means that you can use any property administered by UVCI and enjoy the advantage of dividing you week in both time as well as resorts. For example, you could spend a weekend in Villa del Palmar Loreto and then four days in Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta in the same calendar year. A step up again, would be VILLA PREFERRED ACCESS, which turns your timeshare into points, offering the greatest flexibility. You can then bank points for the following year, split your points for two vacations in one year or stay in a different resort each year. Your points are also easily transferable to RCI and Interval International.
The ELITE PROGRAM was introduced to reward loyal Villa Preferred Members, offering additional benefits depending on the tier of their membership of which there are three levels: Elite Four Star, Elite Five Star and Elite Residence Club
