C.A.R.E. Inventory

FAQs: Reservations

How do you have access to this discounted resort condo inventory?

We have developed relationships with resort developers and organizations that have excess inventory. The majority of this inventory consists of the same weeks that timeshare owners have already paid for, allowing the weeks to be secured at a highly discounted rate if purchased in bulk. However, what separates us from the competition is that we also own the majority of our inventory. Carefree Journeys’ portfolio is held exclusively for our members and is not farmed out to other companies unless our members choose not to use our inventory and it is about to expire. The farming out of inventory is the primary reason why there is limited or no availability with other trade companies.

How do I view the directory of resort condos available to Members for reservations?

The resort directory is available on the Website. You can access it by clicking the “Portfolio Properties” tab or the “Network Properties” tab.   Portfolio Properties are resorts that we have in our inventory year-round, and pricing and availability is listed on the website.  Network Properties are all of the other properties we are able to book, from 5-star resorts to lesser known gems.  Please keep in mind that we have access to every timeshare resort in the world, so if you don’t see the resort you’re interested in on the website, please feel free to call!

Is making a resort condo reservation through Carefree Journeys different than that of RCI or Interval International?

Yes, very different. You are assigned your very own vacation concierge who personally takes care of all your travel needs. One on one service makes for a hassle free travel experience. There also is no additional booking/exchange fee added to the cost of the week.

Can I make nightly reservations at resort condos, or am I required to stay a minimum of one week?

Yes. You can book from as little as one night’s stay up to a month at a time, depending on your membership type.

Why are guest reservations for resort condos limited to only two weeks per year?

We limit guest reservations to two in order to allow us to balance the allotment of our member weeks without sacrificing the quality of the inventory available to our members.

Can I make a guest reservation at a Members Only Affiliated resort for a non-member?

Yes, up to two weeks per year using your allotted annual weeks. There is an additional $99 fee for guest reservations.
