Exchange Tips & Tricks

Planning future adventures? Looking to explore the world beyond our four home resorts? With affiliations all over the world and an in-house direct exchange department, it couldn’t be easier to broaden your horizons! Here’s what you need to know to help your exchange go as smoothly as possible:

  • Contact us with your exchange request as early as possible (8-12 months out is ideal). The more time you give us, the more likely it is that we’ll be able to find just what you want.
  • Be as flexible as you can with your travel dates, location, unit size, etc.
  • Travel off-season! This is a savvy traveller’s best tip. Not only is it easier to find accommodations, but you’ll avoid the crowds everywhere else, too!

Our friendly Direct Exchange Department would love to give you more information and answer any questions you may have. Contact us at (800) 359-6753, and press 2 for the Direct Exchange Department. Or start by exploring our lists of U.S. and International Direct Exchanges.

*Direct exchanges are a benefit provided to Perennial Vacation Club members only. Interested in joining our unique, member-owned club? Find more information here.

Son’s Island: Lakeside Cabanas in the Texas Hill Country!

Son’s Island (located about an hour from our Bandera resort, in Sequin) is a wonderful place to spend a day in the Texas Hill Country! Rent a lakeside cabana for the day, go kayaking and paddle boarding, and enjoy the beauty of this special area. Each island cabana has a private floating dock, and some cabanas are located directly on the water. You can also swim, play beach volleyball, enjoy some BBQ and more! Although Son’s Island is located outdoors, for the safety of their guests and employees they are currently limiting capacity to 50%, and limiting groups to no more than 8 people per cabana. With the abundant space and sunshine, it’s easy to stay distanced from other guests.

Check their website for more information and fabulous photos of this beautiful area!
